The New York Giants expect Eli Manning to remain with the franchise in 2019.

"Well, I think Eli can help us win games, and he proved when the players around him started playing better that he can play at a very high level and help us win games, so at this point I want Eli back," Pat Shurmur said from Indianapolis. "He's back."

Asked specifically if he expects Manning to be on the team in 2019, Shurmur said, "I fully expect him [back].

"[General manager] Dave [Gettleman] will tell you I'm a body collector. I want to keep all the players we have and add new ones. I really feel that way about Eli," he said.

Manning's cap hit for next season is $23.2 million.
