Philip Rivers -- a man who has never ever ever been confused for an "elite quarterback" in his entire career -- managed to get the San Diego Chargers to cough up a four-year, $83 million deal over the weekend, $65 million of which is guaranteed. Eli Manning -- a boy in a man's body who has flirted with the title of "elite quarterback" on more than one occasion -- is looking to surpass Rivers' deal, making him the highest-paid player in the NFL (until Andrew Luck gets paid at some point between now and 2017). How much is he asking for? The short answer, according to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, is $23.7 million per season.
That's a whole wotta chingy coins for Eli.
