Eli Manning says media may have to call him “Elisha” to separate him from rookie Eli Apple

Eli Manning is a free agent after the season for the Giants, but his agent is not worried about getting him under contract

Eli Manning says he doesn’t care what you call him

With the 10th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the New York Giants drafted Eli Apple from Ohio State.  Now the Giants have two Eli’s on the team, and when local media asked Eli Manning how they will be able to separate the two of them and his answer was classic.

“Haven’t really thought about it that way,” he said, per Paul Schwartz of The New York Post. “Never really cared about other people’s names. I don’t know what we’ll do. We’ll figure it out. I have seniority, so we can call him E.A. or Apple maybe. I don’t know. Call me Elisha, maybe, switch to my official full name. I dunno.’’

Elisha?  Really Eli, you are better than that.
