Eli Manning on Wilson's deal: Not my concern

Eli Manning has never been comfortable talking about his contract status and he told reporters he's not in the business of comparing Russell Wilson's contract to his own.

With training camp underway, Eli Manning and the Giants' front office have yet to come to terms on a contract extension. The two-time Super Bowl MVP spoke to Giants beat reporters on Friday, and didn’t appear to be preoccupied with his future.

“You’d have to ask the Giants or ask my agent,” said Manning on whether there was any progress on a contract extension. “That’s not my concern. I don’t get too involved with that stuff.”

Giants’ co-owner John Mara insisted that both sides would eventually work out a deal, but a deadline hasn’t not set for negotiations to end. It’s hard to imagine Manning landing anywhere outside of New York, but the franchise signal-caller is keeping himself focused on training camp.

"I hope so," noted Manning of getting a deal done. "Right now my concern is getting on this practice field for our first practice. I’m excited about that and just let the business side of it just work itself out.

On Friday Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks reached a four-year, $87.6 million extension, but Manning claims he’s not paying any attention to what other top quarterbacks are racking in.

”No, I’m not into the comparison about how much money you’re making,” said Manning of Wilson’s deal. “That’s not my concern.”
