Eli Manning is at the center of a lawsuit involving allegedly fraudulent memorabilia. Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in a lawsuit accusing New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Giants equipment staff of conspiring to pass off fake “game-used” helmets as authentic memorabilia. Why are Eli Manning and the Giants on trial?

Three sports memorabilia collectors who accused New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning of providing bogus "game-worn" equipment that was sold to unsuspecting fans settled their lawsuit against the Super Bowl-winning quarterback on Monday, days before the case was scheduled to go to trial. A spokesman for the defendants, a group that included Manning, the Giants, two equipment managers and Steiner Sports, the company with whom Manning is under contract to provide game-worn jerseys and helmets for sale, said Monday night a settlement had been reached to resolve the claims. Plaintiffs Eric Inselberg, Michael Jakab and Sean Godown had sought triple the amount of their alleged losses — which totaled less than $20,000 combined — for buying two helmets billed as worn by Manning.

When it comes to football, Saquon Barkley has a knack for doing what might sound impossible. Whether it's his freakish feats in the weight room, or his game-breaking plays during a three-year career at Penn State (during which he scored a school-record 53 touchdowns), the 6-foot, 233-pounder earned another distinction when he was selected second overall by the Giants in the draft last month instead of a quarterback. In a QB-driven league where an every-down back is an endangered species, Barkley was the highest running back drafted in more than a decade.

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is appealing a four-game suspension with a decision on his status expected within one week. "At the end of the 2017 season, as a result of a NFL mandated random drug test, Mark Ingram tested positive for a substance that was not a performance enhancing substance, nor an illegal substance, but a substance in fact permissible with the proper use exemption with the NFL. Upon having the opportunity to review the arbitrator's opinion, we will explore what further opinions are needed," the Saints said in a statement.

Former New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has a time in mind this year when he will retire if he isn't signed by an NFL team by then. Cruz, speaking to reporters Tuesday at the BTIG Charity Day event in Manhattan, wouldn't reveal an exact date, but noted his decision would "probably (come) around training camp time and then we'll go from there. "Once that deadline comes, if nothing has happened, I'll hang them up," Cruz said.

New York Giants co-owner John Mara says there is no rush in getting a new deal for wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. It has been reported that Beckham "will not set foot on a field" without a new deal, whether it's from the Giants or any other team amid trade rumors earlier this year. "I wouldn't say a sense of urgency," Mara said according to the New York Daily News.
