Eli Manning will no longer have a potentially serious legal issue hanging over his head.
Manning has settled the memorabilia fraud lawsuit that had been scheduled to begin today, a league source tells PFT.
At the last minute the trial did not start today because of a death in the family of one of the attorneys, but now there will be no trial, as Manning and the plaintiffs have agreed to a settlement.
The Minnesota Vikings went 13-3 last year, despite losing stud running back Dalvin Cook four weeks into what was becoming a sensational rookie season. They made the NFC Championship Game, despite haveing gone the entire year without their top two quarterbacks entering the year (Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater).
It’s not as though Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon weren’t solid in place of Cook, or that Case Keenum didn’t put together a fantastic season in place of Bradford and Bridgewater. But if you take that 2017 team, add a full season of Cook and throw in new quarterback Kirk Cousins, you get the potential for something special.
Este played nearby at Tennessee-Martin and had 129 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and four interceptions over the course of his college career. Firkser has spent time with the Chiefs and Jets while the other three were undrafted this year.

On his relationship with 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster: “You know, I’ve had conversations with him. Obviously he knows mistakes have happened in the past and he’s trying to move past it. He’s doing his best to deal with the situation the best he can. Basically, he’s an incredible young man. We’re all human beings and I think that’s what society forgets — that we all make mistakes. These young men are under a microscope that most people don’t have to deal with. And, obviously, he’s handling it the best he can, but I’m trying to do my part to just be a good teammate and be there for him in any way I can. And I think he’s going to be fine.”
