Many New York Giants fans are worried their starting quarterback could hit the open market, but Eli Manning’s agent Tom Condon is not too worried about that happening. Condon feels his quarterback will get the quarterback he deserves, because it is not that often a franchise quarterback hits the open market.
“The interesting part about it is, since 1993, the inception of free agency, has there ever been an elite quarterback hit the open market?” Condon asked, via the New York Daily News. “Peyton (Manning did in 2012), but he had four neck surgeries and no idea if he would ever be well enough to play. Drew Brees, when he went to New Orleans (in 2006), he had 15 studs in his shoulder, in his throwing arm (from a hit he took in the final game of 2005).
“There’s nobody else that’s ever come up. They just re-do you.”
“The quarterbacks always get done,” Condon said. “And the Giants are not a skittish team. So it’s not one of those things where they get nervous or they jump around or anything like that. You know you’re going to go in and it’s going to get done. I’m sure at the appropriate time it’ll happen.”
