"It's shocking that a guy who's been such an important part of their organization, that they'd want to get rid of him," Manning told Reuters after an appearance in New York. "He's had great seasons these last couple of years."
Manning is coming off an 8-8 season that left the Giants out of the post-season for the first time in five years, while McNabb drove the Eagles into the playoffs with an 11-5 record. Both teams play in the NFC East.
"You kind of heard rumors the last couple of years," said Manning. "I'm kind of waiting to see if something truly happens.
"Donovan has been a tremendous player for the Eagles, a staple of their organization. He's a tremendous competitor and a tremendous person."
