New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said Wednesday he is willing to talk this offseason about restructuring his contract if it becomes necessary to ease the burden on the team.
"I haven't thought about it, but if they come to me, yeah, we'll discuss it and figure out a plan," Manning said, via NJ.com.
The 32-year-old Manning is signed through 2015 at salaries of $15.15 million and $17 million over the next two seasons.
According to Spotrac.com, Eli counts for $20.4 million and $19.75 million over the next two years against the cap.
Manning reworked his contract in 2009.
The NFL salary cap for 2014 is expected to be in the $126.3 million range, according to the NFL Network's Albert Breer.
