Could teflon Eli finally be in hot water?

In what could effect his legacy and possible playing time with the Giants, the New York Post is reporting that an email proves that Manning had a role in the New York Giants’ scheme to sell fake game-used memorabilia, Kaja Whitehouse and Bruce Golding reported.

According to court documents, Manning sent an email to equipment manager Joe Skiba.

The Giants release this statement on the matter:

According to the Post — after a request from marketing agent Alan Zucker for two game-used helmets and jerseys — Manning sent this email.

“2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli.”

Manning, Skiba and the Giants were among those sued in a lawsuit from three memorabilia collectors.
