"This was first reported three years ago and I have been dealing with it for a long time, but I am just more angry than anything having to deal with it, knowing I have done nothing wrong and still being attacked", Manning said.

Manning, who has been accused of taking part in the scheme so he could hang on to his personal items, allegedly sent an incriminating email in 2010 to the Giants' equipment manager for "helmets that can pass as game used", court documents show. "I know that when this is all done everybody will see it the same way". Manning spoke at the onset of the Giants' organized team activities which began this week.

Steiner had yet to research what ultimately became of the helmets that Manning presented him and to whom, if anyone, the helmets were sold. "The email predates any litigation, and there was no legal obligation to store it on the Giants server". The quarterback said that his track record speaks for itself and said that he was angry that people have "turned" on him because of the allegations leveled in the suit.

Brandon Steiner, CEO of memorabilia collector Steiner Sports, had Manning's back on Tuesday, saying on a Facebook Live video that the Giants' quarterback is "someone I would say I trust my children with."

Steiner admits that the chain of custody isn't ideal with game-used items. "We're going to do everything we can to support those players when the waters get a little rocky".

"I will say that I've never done what I've been accused of doing". "Yes, I lose sleep because I see this".

Sports memorabilia collector Eric Inselberg of Short Hills sued Manning, Giants co-owner John Mara and others in 2014, alleging they engaged in a scam to sell fake "game-worn" equipment for profit.

The e-mail was included in a court filing in Bergen County (New Jersey) Superior Court.
