Following the fraud settlement involving Eli Manning and the New York Giants franchise, the organization reportedly let go of three long-time locker room employees, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan and Darren Rovell.
The Giants let go of Joseph Skiba, the equipment director; Edward Skiba, the assistant equipment manager; and Ed Wagner Jr., who was the equipment/locker room manager, according to ESPN.
The Giants, Manning and Steiner Sports settled a lawsuit on May 14 that alleged they committed memorabilia fraud, providing non-game-used helmets for sale as certified game-used helmets.
Part of the claim includes an email Manning sent in 2010 to Joseph Skiba asking for two helmets "that can pass as game used." Skiba provided them to Manning but was found not liable in the civil settlement, ESPN reports, as the judge agreed with his counsel's argument that he did not represent them as game-used to consumers nor did he profit from the exchange.
Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
