Archie Manning isn’t at all bothered by the fact that the Giants drafted his son Eli’s replacement. He says GM Dave Gettleman drafted a “really good, young man” and he expected them to draft a quarterback.
The elder Manning added that Eli isn’t ready to hand the team over to the former Duke quarterback just yet.
Via TMZ Sports:
“They drafted a really good, young man,” Archie says … “A really good, young player.”
Of course, the Giants just picked up the Duke QB with the No. 6 overall selection in April’s NFL Draft … and that means Eli’s days are officially numbered in NY.
But, Archie says he ain’t mad Eli’s team drafted a guy to replace him … and, in fact, Papa Manning says he actually saw it coming.
“I knew they were probably going to draft a QB,” Archie says.
Things in New York are a mess right now. We only expect it to get even messier before the Giants come close to putting together a complete team.
