the least of our problems is that we have a 2 time SB MVP QB who we're paying $20 mill a season.
regardless of how he played this year, there's no way in hell we win that SB without him. so for people suggesting that Eli somehow isn't worth what he's getting paid is completely insane. there's a whole bunch of $15-20 mill QBs in the NFL, and we're lucky to have one of them.
If you renegotiate within the term of the original agreement, this is what happens.
If you extend, then the old money must go with the new contract with new money added.
If you cut him, them guaranteed money still counts.
On the very same day in early 2014 when the Giants sign Eli to an extension, GmenNFCBeasts will be featured in the first story on the nightly news.
All of his neighbors will describe him as, "a quiet man who kept to himself"
If you dig up the dirt in Oakland, you will find Giant bones
