Eli Manning thinking about a new role with the Giants

None sound just right in the immediate aftermath of Manning’s retirement Friday, but he said he is considering Giants co-owner John Mara’s offer to stay involved in some capacity. The Giants are retiring Manning’s No. 10 and inducting him into the Ring of Honor — and a future ambassador position seems like an obvious fit.

“Definitely something I’d be interested in,” Manning said, “so I just have to talk to Mr. Mara and see in what ways [to stay involved] and I have to think in what way. I’m going to take some time and figure out how I want to spend these next years.”

Manning spent the last three weeks looking back, not forward. He will immerse himself in family now, including coaching his daughter’s third-grade basketball team, and make up for lost time due to the obligations of an NFL playing career.

“I have so many close friends within the organization, not just teammates but in all departments,” Manning said. “People don’t leave here because of all the wonderful people and the way the organization is run. They take care of the people here.”
