Eli Manning said he is "feeling great" in a video released by Steiner Sports.
The Giants QB said he is out of his walking boot, done with crutches and has done some running and drop-back drills.
His progress seems to be moving along extremely well following ankle surgery which should obviously make the Giants happy. He wasn;t expected to be back for OTAs, but it looks like he should be in camp this summer with plenty of time to prepare for the upcoming season. His draft stock will still drop due to last season's struggles, but he could prove to be a decent bargain should he get back to the place that saw him win two Super Bowl MVP awards.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Fernando Rodney has hit a recent rough patch, but said he's put it behind him.
Rodney's closing job is in danger right now, as they 38-year old has already blown a save and has given up in seven runs 3 1/3 innings. Carson Smith could be next in line for saves should Rodney be removed from the job, though Yoervis Medina is another option in the back of the bullpen. As a closer, Rodney will have to have a short term memory and put the issues behind him, as he has a great track record and the stuff is still there for him to succeed in the ninth inning.
