ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Giants have concerns Eli Manning is entering the declining stage of his career.
Per Graziano, it's part of the reason why the Giants decided not to extend Manning's contract this offseason, which would have provided significant salary cap relief. The Giants are hoping that Manning is reenergized by the arrival of OC Ben McAdoo, but there's no guarantee he can rebound from the regression he showed in 2013. The Giants lost Hakeem Nicks and failed to upgrade at wide receiver or tight end in free agency, so Manning will be working with mostly the same supporting cast as last year. Manning recently underwent ankle surgery, but is expected to be ready for training camp.
Free agent DE Alex Hall visited the Titans on Wednesday.

Hall has made only two appearances since the end of the 2009 season, both of which came in 2010. He spent the past seasons in the CFL. Hall would be an extreme long-shot to crack the Titans' 53-man roster.
Eli Manning is undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle Thursday afternoon.
Manning suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 17. "I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation," Manning said in a statement. "The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks." It's unideal for a quarterback learning a new system, but Manning should be back to 100 percent well ahead of training camp. A 10-year veteran who's started every game since 2005, Manning should have little issue learning new OC Ben McAdoo's system.
