It’s been a whole year since Eli Manning left the New York Giants after a decorated 16-year career. Miss him yet? Well, he’ll be around a little more going forward if he has his way.

In an interview with Michael Rothstein of ESPN, Manning was asked after a year of recharging what his next move professionally is going to be.

“You know, I’m still figuring that out. You’re a little bit limited on what you could do and what some options were, obviously, with a pandemic going on, so I just took this time to just reflect and dabble in a few things,” Manning said. “I am going to do some things with ESPN. I filmed a couple [episodes] of ‘Details’ the other day on [quarterbacks] Mac Jones [of Alabama] and Justin Fields [of Ohio State].

“I’m going to join Peyton [Manning] in some of his ‘Peyton’s Places’ and do the … kind of college version of that, college football. So some of those things will be fun, keep me involved in the game of football.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to do some more things with the Giants next year as well. This year, it was new, didn’t know how much I wanted to be around [the team]. I think we both needed a break from each other, but hopefully I can do some more things related to the Giants.”

Manning recently opened a Twitter account (@EliManning) but doesn’t plan on posting anything too controversial.

“I still have that side where it’s not trying to let everybody know exactly what I’m doing and what’s going on, and I still — I don’t tweet a whole lot about my everyday experiences,” said Manning. “But to see a lighter side, to see just some of the goofy things that are going on and a few things about kids’ sports and activities and sloppy Joes.

“I try not to get too serious. I don’t want to say anything negative about anything. Just kind of a neat way to have a little voice and see if you can get some people to smile a little bit.”

Giants co-owner John Mara has been very open about his desire to see Manning take a role with the organization, so we’ll see what 2021 begins.
