General manager Dave Gettleman and new head coach Pat Shurmur doused any doubt the New York Giants are sticking with Eli Manning in 2018. "We believe that Eli Manning has got years left as a starting quarterback in this league," Shurmur said Wednesday morning at the Indianapolis Convention Center on the first day of the NFL Scouting Combine. Gettleman said he sat down with Manning and told him to be ready to go.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The New York Giants think quarterback Eli Manning has multiple years left as a starting quarterback and are open to trading down from the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft. New Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday at the scouting combine that he thought Manning has "years left as a starting quarterback in this league." And new Giants general manager Dave Gettleman indicated that everything is on the board entering this week's scouting combine, including potentially moving back in the first round. "Are we open for business? You know, whatever. Any decision I make is going to be in the best interest of the New York Football Giants. Plain and simple," Gettleman said. "So

Three years after Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was involved in perhaps the most notorious “not a catch” reversal in NFL history, the league’s competition committee said it should have been a catch. Bryant seemed to make a big fourth-down catch in a playoff game at Lambeau Field, but it was reversed on review, sparking an outrage. This week the competition committee said it wants to rewrite the catch rule so catches like Bryant’s will count in the future.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Dez caught it. The NFL competition committee has reached a "unanimous" agreement that some of the league's most-debated catch controversies should be ruled complete in the future, according to committee member and New York Giants owner John Mara. They include plays involving Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant in the 2014 playoffs and Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson in 2010, Mara said, and have prompted a discussion during meetings here at the scouting combine geared toward rewriting the rule for the 2018 season. "I think where we are unanimous," Mara told ESPN Tuesday, "[are] plays like the Dez Bryant play in Green Bay, going to the ground, the Calvin Johnson play from a

Just before the NFL’s scouting combine, UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen wanted to put a story to rest. Rosen insists he has no problem playing for the Cleveland Browns, who have the first and fourth picks and need a quarterback. An ESPN report in December said Rosen preferred the New York Giants, who have the second pick, and would be hesitant to declare for the draft if he knew the Browns would pick him.Cleveland has a long and depressing list of quarterbacks who have failed there, and are 1-31 over the past two seasons.

Stephen Curry hit one of his signature 3-point shots with 27.7 seconds left in the third quarter to give his team a 112-109 lead over Team LeBron in the NBA All-Star Game at Staples Center. LeBron James leads his team with 19 points. With the new format of the teams being picked by captains James and Curry, the players seem much more into it than in the past games, which have been largely devoid of defense.

A family version of the New England Patriots Super Bowl LI championship ring with "Brady" on it sold Sunday morning for $344,927, a record for a football ring. The ring, which has 265 diamonds compared to the 283 that Tom Brady's actual ring has and is about 10 percent smaller, has the same exact engraving as Brady's ring would have. The ring comes with a letter of appraisal from its maker Jostens for Brady that assesses the jewelry value of the ring at $29,700. Ken Goldin, president of Goldin Auctions, which sold the ring, would not say who consigned the ring or how it was obtained. Goldin also said the buyer prefers to remain anonymous. To put the astronomical price paid for the Brady ring

The Impressive Things About Tom Brady list is already quite long, but let’s add another thing to it: Brady knows his way around a Lil Wayne rap lyric. Sexual innuendo aside, bravo, Tom Brady — didn’t know you had that in you.
