Bridging The Gap
Eight teams that Eli Manning could play for in 2018.
  Wednesday 29 November, 2017
Eight teams that Eli Manning could play for in 2018.

Lindsay H. Jones discusses what's next for Eli Manning after being benched by Giants coach Ben McAdoo.

In a shocking move Tuesday afternoon, the New York Giants announced the end of Eli Manning's

streak of 210 consecutive regular-season starts, an ironman performance topped only by Hall of Famer Brett Favre (297). But just as Favre's time in Green Bay eventually ended, this may be curtains for Manning's run on Broadway.

Based on what we know has happened and what could happen, here are eight logical
destinations for Manning, assuming he'll be playing a 15th NFL season in 2018.

Manning's longtime coach with the Giants, Tom Coughlin, now runs the Jags. (And let's not forget how hard Manning took the news when the Giants and Coughlin announced their awkward

divorce following the 2015 campaign.) But Jacksonville offers a ready-made opportunity to win, featuring a young stud at running back in Leonard Fournette and a loaded defense poised to dominate for the next half-dozen years or more. The gaping hole is under center, where

Blake Bortles has not developed into the franchise player the Jags had hoped for. Manning

could be the perfect solution for a team that could use a veteran presence at the game's most important position and probably an ideal mentor since it still makes sense to bring in a long-term successor.

Manning is known for his unflappable personality, but don't mistake that for lack of competitive fire. And don't forget how much Favre wanted to stick it to the Packers twice a year after they cut the cord with him. If the Redskins manage to finally lock up Kirk Cousins long term, this clearly wouldn't be a viable destination for Manning. But as things stand now, it's a far more realistic possibility in the future than Dallas or Philadelphia.
