Amid Minshew Mania and the Jalen Ramsey trade or no trade situation, it may be easy to lose track of things like Eli Manning being benched for the Giants. According to a report from Kim Jones of NFL Network, Tom Coughlin made sure to check in on the QB he won two Super Bowls with as a coach.
There was some speculation that the Jaguars would try and sign Eli Manning this past off-season before making a deal with Nick Foles. The specifics of the texts have not been released, but surely Coughlin just wanted to see how his former QB was holding up after hearing the news that he got benched. Wouldn't want to breach any tampering rules, right?
