Eli Manning says he’s never asked to be highest paid. Never asked his agent for that either.

Eli Manning suggested that whoever put report out there was “trying to make a name for himself.” — Ebenezer Samuel (@ebenezersamuel) August 19, 2015
Manning’s former teammate Shaun O’Hara chimed in on Twitter.
Known the guy for over a decade, zero % chance that Eli is asking to be highest paid QB. Those words would never come out of his mouth.
