There will reportedly be a press conference held Friday for the legendary NFL gunslinger.

Well, there it is, folks. Eli Manning has officially taken off his cleats and hung them up. What an incredible career.

He has two Super Bowl rings, he played the game with nothing but class, he was a great leader and he got to throw the ball around one last time before the end of the season.

His final years in the NFL with the Giants might not have gone how Manning and the fans wanted. There wasn’t as much success as people would have wanted.

Still, that doesn’t offset how incredible of a career Manning had with the Giants. Now, he’ll ride off into the sunset.
