The start of NFL free agency and Pats making some big moves:
Gilmore to replace Ryan (or Butler) at Cornerback?
Allen to replace Bennett to Tight End?
I would've been shocked if J Sheard stayed w/NEP...rumor had it he was in the BB dog house or "guilty by association" with Jamie Collins. He's luck he didn't end up being exiled to Siberia AKA: Cleveland or JAX. Great pick-up with B cook...fastest guy on NEP now. Goners are: Ninkovitch, Boldin, & C Brown.
Brady SB Jerseys recovered in Mexico (along with Vonn Miller's helmet)
Pats add Rex Burkhead as another running back
Geno Smith moves from backup QB for Jets to Giants
G-men also lock up JPP long term
Jets add Josh Mccowan as possible starting QB
Butler visiting Saints this week. If he signs, Pats can match $ and keep him or get #11 draft pick
Eli Manning had a role in the New York Giants' scheme to sell fake game-used memorabilia, Kaja Whitehouse and Bruce Golding of the New York Post reported.Per court documents, Manning sent an email to equipment manager Joe Skiba that read, "2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli."This came shortly after a request from marketing agent Alan Zucker for two game-used helmets and jerseys.Manning, Skiba and the Giants were among those named in a lawsuit from three memorabilia collectors.Another email exchange featured Skiba admitting to the plaintiff that Manning created the fake memorabilia because he "didnt want to give up the real stuff."
Manning and the Giants were first sued over these allegations in 2014. Last March, the plaintiff claimed the Giants gave former player Michael Strahan a bogus jersey he thought was used during Super Bowl XLII.
One fake game-used helmet from Manning is also supposedly in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
