Quarterback

QB | Anthony Wright | Free Agent Players | Free Agency News
Tony Grossi, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports the Cleveland Browns would be interested in unrestricted free-agent QB Anthony Wright (Bengals) if the team decides to sign a veteran quarterback.

QB | Eli Manning | New York Giants | Transaction, Free Agency News
Mike Garafolo, of the Star-Ledger, reports the New York Giants have not extended the contract of QB Eli Manning, contrary to earlier reports. The team reportedly exercised a "buy-back" option of Manning's contract earlier this month, a move that was made in order to keep Manning under contract through the 2012 season. Manning would reportedly have become a free agent following the 2007 season. "It is the same contract that was reported as six years and $45-54 million back in 2004. All of the buyback bonus and simple escalators that have been earned are included in those same numbers that were initially reported. Eli's contract goes through 2009. We exercised a buyback which was intended to be exercised all along and has been planned for accordingly. There is nothing "new" about Eli's current contract status," the team released in a statement Monday, March 19. Instead of Manning becoming a free agent at the end of next season, the team paid a reported $5 million buy-back bonus to restore the 2008 and 2009 seasons to his contract. Also, Manning's base salaries for the next three seasons, according to the NFLPA, will be $6 million, $8 million and $8.5 million.
