The Football Onion Core Is Yet To Peel Away

Just one day after I made my post regarding the demise of the Arena Football League, the NFL proves that the core of the onion is still untouched. Yesterday, it was announced that Eli Manning's new contract makes him the leagues top paid player. This would signify that the peak continues to climb and that the core is still protected by the "outer shell".

The LA Times reports:
"Eli Manning has agreed to a new six-year, $97-million contract extension with the New York Giants that will make him the highest-paid player in the NFL, with an average salary of roughly $15.3 million.A person close to the talks who asked not to be identified says Manning is guaranteed $35 million under the deal that will keep him with the Giants through the 2015 season."

The weakest fall first with more to follow. The onion gets peeled back one layer of a time.
