The New York Daily News reports that the Giants-Jets bid to host Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014 is looking more likely to happen.
The NFL owners are set to vote on the Super Bowl host on May 25. The Daily News reports that Giants CEO and co-owner John Mara said they need just 15 more votes for New York to win the vote, and Patriots owner Robert Kraft is apparently on board to vote for the Big Apple.
Tampa and South Florida are both in the running against New York, but are trailing in support.

Former Bills interim coach Perry Fewell, who interviewed with Tom Coughlin last week, could accept an offer to become the Bears' defensive coordinator when he meets with coach Lovie Smith, according to the Bergen Record.
Fewell left his meeting with Coughlin with the understanding he would call back the Giants after visiting with Smith.
Fewell entered the NFL as a defensive backs coach under Coughlin with the 1998 Jaguars, but he's also worked with Smith as part of the staff on the Rams and Bears.

According to the New York Post, Justin Tuck has a history of playing through pain and illness, but is more inclined to sit out this week than rush back.
Tuck is dealing with an apparent injury to the labrum in his left shoulder, which he sustained when Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams tripped him in the second quarter of the Giants 33-32 win.
Adams was fined $12,500 by the league.

Eli Manning is still in line to get one of the most lucrative contracts in NFL history, but according to the New York Daily News, he is just going to have to wait a little longer than expected.
Manning and the Giants remain far apart in their negotiations on a new deal, according to two NFL sources with knowledge of the talks.
According to one source, Manning's agents "want to make him the highest-paid player."
Another source suggested the Super Bowl XLII MVP's initial asking price was up near an average of $20 million per year.

The Giants are sitting on ten draft picks, including five picks in the first three rounds.
Even though, the Giants are not allowed to trade the comp pick, five picks in the first 100 selections gives them strength from which to deal. Giving up a first-rounder in a big deal for a receiver wouldn't hurt as much since they have the 13th pick of the second round.

Eli Manning's contract is due to expire after next season, and according to the New York Daily News, the Giants will take the first steps toward making him the next member of the $100 million quarterback club.
Manning might even end up being the highest-paid member, as several NFL sources said his next deal could be worth a league-high $15 million per season. That would be an average of $1 million more than his brother Peyton Manning is making on the seven-year, $98 million deal he signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2004.
That would make the 28-year-old the eighth quarterback to top the $100 million barrier, and would put him near the top with Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb (12 years, $115million), Cincinnati's Carson Palmer (nine years, $118.75 million), and former Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick (10 years, $130 million).
