Hmm, I wonder who brought this up first?
Last week, I wrote an article, suggesting the New York Giants put Eli Manning on the trade block, with the intent of dealing him to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With Tom Coughlin now a member of the Jaguars, there is a clear connection between both organizations.
But aside from that, Manning is on the back nine of his NFL career and the Jags seem to be a perfect fit.
Jacksonville has an elite rushing attack, a surprisingly strong defense, and they play in a mediocre division, almost guaranteeing him a shot at the postseason (a stage where he plays his best).
But I'm not the only one with this genius idea.
Former Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes, who spent six seasons as Manning's teammate, tweeted the same thing last night.

Now, nobody is suggesting that this is a report of any sort, but it's certainly interesting, considering the time he's spent with both Coughlin and Manning in his NFL career.
The Giants are 0-5 and the Giants have to find their quarterback of the future at some point.
Dealing Manning would allow them to see what they have in Davis Webb while collecting a few draft picks in the process.
I know, Giants fans are going to hate the idea - but it makes sense.
