Giants hire Eli Manning to front office, set date for jersey retirement

Eli Manning ring of honor

The Giants have hired Eli manning to a front office role. His new role is being touted as “business operations and fan engagement.” New York has also scheduled a date to induct Manning into the Giants’ Ring of Honor. This will also serve as his jersey retirement ceremony, taking place on September 26.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

One of the most popular debates in sports in the past five years has been whether or not Eli Manning belongs in the Hall of Fame. What is not up for debate is whether or not he belongs in the Giants’ Ring of Honor.

The former first overall selection finished his career with a record 117-117. That .500 record does not tell the whole story, though. Over his 16 seasons, he led the Giants to the playoffs six times, winning two Super Bowls over the New England Patriots. His first Super Bowl win, in 2007, ruined the Patriots’ pursuit of a perfect season. He holds 27 Giants records (not all of them positive), including the most passing yards in a single postseason.

Manning will have his number 10 jersey retired and name added to the Ring of Honor on September 26 in a game against the Atlanta Falcons.
