Giants quarterback Eli Manning said goodbye to his 16-year-career on Friday.

Eli says he chose to leave the game with only positive memories. He talked about his connection with his teammates, and how championships create an unbreakable bond.

Eli says he has not a single regret, saying, "I think it worked out for you and for me."

 

Two Super Bowl championships, two Super Bowl MVPs, four Pro Bowl Selections and ranking third all-time in consecutive starts are among his accolades.
