Prior to joining the pros, Eli attended Ole Miss University where he set numerous records on the football field. He was selected as the first pick of the first round of the 2004 NFL draft by the San Diego Chargers. Eli and his father had made it clear before the draft that he would not play for San Diego, so the Chargers instantly traded him to New York in exchange for Philip Rivers and several future draft picks. Eli entered the NFL in the shadow of his older brother, fellow all-star quarterback Peyton Manning. Peyton and Eli's father Archie Manning was also a professional football player. Their oldest brother Cooper Manning was supposedly the best athlete of them all, but his career was cut short by a rare heart condition. Eli would go on to nearly overshadow all of the manning men by winning two Super Bowls with the Giants, one in 2008 and another in 2012. Off the filed, Eli is one of the highest paid celebrity endorsers in the world. He earns $8-10 million per year promoting companies like DirecTV, Toyota, Reebok, Kraft, Citizen and Samsung.
