“He seems to keep talking about it every day and digging himself in a deeper hole every day. Hopefully he can learn his lesson and move on.”
The two-time Super Bowl MVP was then asked if the NBA had a case in pushing Sterling out of the league.

Manning had ankle surgery in the off-season and is now participating in OTA’s at the Giants facilities, stating that he feels like he’s 100%.
