New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning vehemently denied accusations Thursday that he knowingly provided fake game-used memorabilia to collectors, as was suggested in a recent lawsuit. "I've done nothing wrong and I have nothing to hide," Manning said Thursday. Manning turned over a potentially incriminating email earlier this month in connection with a lawsuit that claims the quarterback, the Giants and a team equipment manager knowingly provided memorabilia that was not worn in games. The email was included in a court filing in Bergen County (New Jersey) Superior Court by the plaintiffs -- collectors Eric Inselberg, Michael Jakab and Sean Godown -- who first filed suit three years ago. On Thursday,?Manning said he was angry about the claims and that the emails were "taken out of context." In addition, a source told ESPN's Jordan Raanan that Manning and the Giants submitted a new filing Wednesday that they believe will clear Manning's name.
