ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese says the number of details in Eli Manning's new contract has prevented the quarterback from signing his $97 million, six-year extension.
Reese hopes the deal will get done soon, and is not worried that the agreement will fall apart. He spoke on Saturday between practices at training camp at the University of Albany.
Manning and the Giants agreed on Wednesday to the extension that will make the quarterback the NFL's highest-paid player based average annual salary. Manning will earn $15.3 million under the deal that will expire in 2015.
Reese said there is no timetable for completing the contract.
