Rumor: Giants' Manning looking for $20 million per season

The New York Giants are expected to make Eli Manning(notes) one of the highest paid players in the NFL, however, it is going to take longer than expected for the deal to get done, according to the New York Daily News.

The Daily News, quoting unnamed NFL sources, reported the two sides remain far apart in the negotiations. The plan was for the deal to be finished this spring. According to one source, Manning's agents "want to make him the highest-paid player." Another source suggested the Super Bowl XLII MVP's initial asking price was up near an average of $20 million per year.

According to the Daily News, neither Manning nor co-owner John Mara would discuss details when asked during Giants minicamp this week. And when Manning, whose original six-year deal was worth $45 million to $54 million, was asked if he wanted to be the NFL's highest-paid player, he said, "I don't have an ego about that.''

 Though $20 million per year might be too high, league sources expect Manning, who will make $9.4 million this season, eventually will get a deal worth around $15 million per year. Several league executives and NFL agents expect the final package to be for seven or eight years and be worth around $110 million-$120 million, with more than $40 million in guaranteed money.

I'm sorry I thought this was Hilarious, & some people were saying how McNabb shoud've been happy with his contract & didn't derserve his raise.

I still don't believe this is true, it's gotta be a joke.
