Michael Strahan says he will join Eli Manning in having his number retired by the Giants.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Big Blue has not made an official announcement, but Strahan confirmed the plan during an appearance Monday on "The Tonight Show."

"It's going to be really emotional," he said.

Strahan's No. 92 has been unofficially retired, with no Giant wearing it since the Hall of Fame defensive end retired after the 2007 season.

At Manning's retirement announcement last week, Giants co-owner and team president John Mara announced that no Giant will wear the quarterback's No. 10 again. Mara told the New York Post that the team also plans to announce an official retiring of Strahan's number at some point. It's not yet clear exactly when, however.

Manning and Strahan will become the 13th and 14th Giants to have their numbers retired.

Strahan, now 48, played for the Giants from 1993-2007. He was a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time first-team All-Pro. Strahan is the team's all-time sacks leader with 141 1/2 and holds the NFL's single-season sacks record with 22 1/2, set in 2001, when he was also voted NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He was a member of the Giants' Super Bowl XLII-winning team over the previously undefeated Patriots and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2014.

He has been a member of the Giants' Ring of Honor at MetLife Stadium since 2010.
