Giants head coach Pat Shurmur may have said that Eli Manning is the team's starting quarterback, but the 38-year-old spent more time answering questions about Daniel Jones than the upcoming season after Monday's OTA.
It was the first time Manning and Jones took the field together since the Giants drafted the Duke quarterback with the sixth overall pick in April's NFL Draft, and afterward Manning was asked about the dynamic between him and the future franchise quarterback, particularly if he is comfortable mentoring the soon-to-be 22-year-old rookie.
"I think I've been doing that the last 11, 12 years," Manning said. "I don't know when you become a mentor, or when that's official. I think if you've been in the league longer than any guy in the quarterback room I think you should be a mentor in that sense where if you know a little bit more and be helpful.
