NEW YORK — New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning celebrated his birthday on Monday by signing his new $1.1 billion contract.
The deal is the first major extension the Giants have ever offered.
Manning, who turns 32 in December, is the team’s all-time leader in passing yards, passing touchdowns and passer rating.
He is the all-star quarterback for the first time in his career, the first rookie to lead the team in scoring and the first since the franchise drafted quarterback Eli “Eli” Manning in 1982.
Manners birthday will be marked by a team-wide photo-op with the New York City skyline.
It is also expected to be a day of celebration for Eli’s mother, Karen Manning, who had the birth at her home in suburban New Jersey.
Manner’s contract with the Giants, signed on Tuesday, was $3.9 billion.
It includes a $1 million signing bonus, $750,000 base salary and $1,250,000 in signing bonus money.
It also includes a base salary of $1 to $1 for each year the contract is active, and $500,000 of that is guaranteed.
It includes a first-year base salary that is $2 million higher than the average of $2.6 million for NFL players signed during the regular season.
The Giants are expected to pay Manning $3 million per year.
He will be eligible for incentives that include $100,000 for every win in the first two years of the deal.
It was not immediately clear how much Manning would make in his first season, but his contract will pay him a base of $3,542,000 and a signing bonus of $5.5 million.
It also pays him a signing-year salary of between $3 and $4 million.
The $1 billion deal is more than $5 million more than the $1-billion extension the New England Patriots signed with quarterback Tom Brady in 2016.
The Patriots paid Manning $7.9 million in 2017, $9.1 million in 2018 and $11.9 for 2019.
Manley has also signed a $7 million, four-year extension with the Cleveland Browns that will pay the player a base contract of $11 million and a $6 million signing-bonus.
The team’s new contract will be one of the largest ever for a quarterback, surpassing the $6.7 million contract signed by former quarterback Peyton Manning with the Denver Broncos in 2013.
Manziel and his teammates have been excited about the potential of a potential new franchise.
The franchise is already looking at the future of its roster and the possibilities of the new team.
The Giants, who were the final expansion team out of the National Football League, have been among the first teams to consider building a new stadium in the city.
The first two Super Bowl appearances by the Giants under Manning and quarterback Eli, who was traded from the Broncos to the Giants in 2016, are the only time in the team-long history that the team has won a championship.
The 2017 season also marked the first year in which Manning played without his right arm.
He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for a sixth-round pick in 2018.
Manzeriel’s contract includes a signing option for the 2021 season, which will pay a $2,500,00 base salary in 2021 and $2 per play in 2022.
The contract also includes $1 per play for every touchdown the quarterback throws during the year.
Managers from all teams will be allowed to sign Manning for an additional $10,000,000 to $20,000.
Maning’s contract has an average annual value of $717,500.
It will pay Manning an average of between 1.6 and 2.4 million in guaranteed money.
