Eli Manning Interested in NFL Ownership if ‘Right Fit’

  • Eli Manning would like to be an NFL owner, but only under the right circumstances.
  • Ideally, he would hold a stake in the New York Giants.

Eli Manning would like to be an NFL team owner, but he’s not sure if he would look beyond the only team he’s ever played for — the New York Giants.

“It’s of interest, it’s just got to be the right fit,” he told Front Office Sports, adding that he isn’t sure when the opportunity will arise because “I don’t think the Giants are going to be for sale anytime soon.” 

As for whether he would buy in on another team, Manning is less enamored with “the idea of joining another team that you have no history with.”

  • Manning is in his second season hosting the Giants-focused “The Eli Manning Show.” 
  • He believes his brother Peyton Manning might beat him to ownership, noting, “Denver’s going through some stuff,” and that Peyton played for the Broncos and still lives there. 
  • Eli earned $252.3 million in salary during his playing career, while Peyton reeled in $248.7 million.

Busy Retirement

Manning has kept busy since retiring as a player. In August, he became a part-owner of the NWSL’s NY/NJ Gotham FC. In January he became a partner at private equity firm Brand Velocity Group

In his latest move, Manning is teaming with Quaker Oats on a campaign to raise $500,000 to fight hunger.

After his Chad Powers tryout with Penn State went viral, Peyton’s Omaha Productions filed trademarks for “Chad Powers” and “Think Fast. Run Fast.”

“We’ll see if there’s a good idea for the legend of Chad to live on,” said Manning.
