The two-time Super Bowl MVP indicated the Giants haven't asked him to redo his contract to open cap space. Manning, who spoke at a sponsor event in New York on Wednesday, says he'll consider anything that helps the team.

The Giants recently allowed Cruz to enter restricted free agency, placing a first-round tender on the player from Paterson. However, the Giants has the right to match any offer he receives.

If the Giants allow him to leave, they will get a first-round draft choice as compensation. The tender is worth $2.87 million for 2012.
