His future with the New York Giants may be in limbo, but Eli Manning has stated that he plans to play football next season.

"I plan on playing next season," Manning said after the Giants lost to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. He stood on the sidelines as Geno Smith started at quarterback.

Manning has a no-trade clause that puts the cards in his hands about where he could land. He could force the Giants into a decision by March 18, when he is due a $5 million roster bonus.
