Eli Manning spoke with reporters on Thursday about the ongoing memorabilia scandal within the New York Giants organization, and the quarterback vehemently denied taking part in any wrongdoing.

Manning, who is part of a lawsuit from memorabilia dealers who claim he participated in a fraud scheme, assured reporters he did nothing illegal and said he is being “attacked.”

Manning said the accusations have been floating around for years and that he is confident he will be completely exonerated when all the facts come out.

The civil-racketeering lawsuit against the Giants dates back to Manning’s rookie year in 2004. An email Manning sent to an equipment manager in 2010 is supposedly considered a “smoking gun” in the case. You can read the text of the email here.

Earlier in the week, Brandon Steiner of sports memorabilia juggernaut Steiner Sports said in a Facebook live segment that he does not believe Manning would provide anyone with fake gear passed off as game-used.
