Counter to what former Jets teammate Sheldon Richardson thinks of Brandon Marshall, the receiver has the support of his new team.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning praised Manning on Monday, the same day Richardson again blasted Marshall for quitting on the Jets last season.
“Brandon’s been great,” Manning said of Marshall, who signed with the Giants as a free agent in March. “Every day trying to learn, always has questions for me and we’re trying to figure out what he can do better, how we can get on the same page.

Gisele Bundchen’s claim that her husband had past concussions might as well have never Cheap Jerseys Kids NFL been said.
