Russell Wilson heard Eli Manning’s joke about him and is firing back.
During Monday Night Football’s Manningcast, Eli joked that the Broncos punter deserved to get Wilson’s $235 million contract because of how many times the Broncos have punted this season.
“They should have paid that punter $235 million instead of Russell.”
"They should've paid that punter $235 million instead of Russell [Wilson]."
