Eli Manning spent Tuesday morning at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Secaucus, working behind the counter as part of his new partnership with the donut chain. But a few hours before that, he was working out at the Giants facility.

“Obviously, I’ve tried to manage my time well,” Manning said. “I was able to get up, get a workout at the facility today, kind of get my preparations done.”

It was a sign that Manning has not lost his focus. The Giants’ Super Bowl XLVI victory has led to an offseason of increased visibility for the normally low-profile QB. He hosted Saturday Night Live, threw out the first pitch at the Mets game on Father’s Day, and then on Tuesday, he was working behind the counter at Dunkin’ Donuts. Over the next few months, he’ll appear in a series of ads for the company.

New York Giants' Michael Boley: I'm Still the Outside Linebacker

With a sea of depth at the linebacker position, very little is set in stone for the New York Giants.
