Eli Manning: Plans to retire

Manning will hold a press conference Friday to announce his retirement from football, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Manning reportedly didn't intend to stay in New York as a backup, but he gave some thought to exploring free agency for an opportunity to compete for a starting job. It didn't take him long to decide against that second option, with the 39-year-old perhaps realizing he'd be the underdog in any of these theoretical QB battles. Meanwhile, the Giants will move forward with Daniel Jones.
