Giants' Eli Manning retires after 16 seasons, 2 Super Bowls

Brady and Manning have built up quite the rivalry over the years and now, Brady is the last one standing with six Super Bowls to his name.

"But that's not me", Manning said.

"As a guy who grew up watching him and really, really looking up to him - and the opportunity to come to work with him and learn from him and be on the field with him was probably the best learning, growing experience I could have had in my first year, " Jones said.

Eli's brother Peyton Manning has shared his thoughts on his brother's career, and several other current and former players like Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and many more paid tribute to the Giants QB as he retires. "I see how competitive he is and we joke around a little bit, but I think it's not real amusing to him.", Manning said, and smirked. "Believe me, there is nothing easy about today".

"I think they have a great relationship, " co-owner John Mara said. "They knew what they got was pure unadulterated Eli".

According to sports data tracker Spotrac, Eli Manning is retiring as the highest paid player over his career in the game.

The Giants also got their career leading passer in nearly every category in a career that started after NY acquired him on draft day in 2004 from the Chargers. It was Manning's New York Giants who beat them twice on football's biggest stage, including stopping a ideal season in its tracks.

Jones started 12 games as a rookie and he is often told how much he reminds everyone in the building of Manning.

"That was my farewell and a moment I will cherish forever", said Manning.
