Manning added that he would not be able to discuss specific aspects of the civil case because the lawsuit is still underway.
"I have done nothing wrong", Manning said.
"I have no reason to do anything of that nature", Manning said.
Recently, the CEO of Steiner Sports, Brandon Steiner, had Manning's back, saying that he's "someone I would say I trust my children with". "Again, I can't answer any questions, but if you have anything about the upcoming season I will answer those".
With nearly nothing to talk about at this stage in the season, the situation regarding Eli Manning and the potential forgery of game-used items has been a hot story among the media. "It is one thing to write about my football or my play- when you are attacking my integrity, it definitely makes me angry". "This was first reported three years ago".
"100 percent", he said. My track record with how I've handled myself since I've been here in NY 2004 speaks for itself.

Manning said he has heard "nothing from the NFL" regarding the matter.
Manning was asked if he had sought the counsel of his older brother, Peyton, and as usual, he has. I've been dealing with it for a long time. "That's what I have done and that's being attacked right now", Manning told reporters, according to ESPN. The Giants and a team equipment manager also were named in the suit.
"Well, it's just autographs", he said. He said has never personally sold or made any money off a jersey or helmet sale.
