Giants quarterback Eli Manning officially announced his retirement from the NFL after 16 seasons.

Manning shared what led to his decision in a press conference at MetLife Stadium on Friday.

“It was important for me to go out as a Giant. …It was the right thing to call it a career, to end it, rather than uproot my family.”

Manning echoed the same sentiment at the end of his speech when he quoted former team co-owner Wellington Mara, “‘Once a Giant, always a Giant.’ For me, it’s only a Giant.”

Giants co-owner and president John Mara said the team will retire Manning’s No. 10 jersey and induct him into the Ring of Fire.
