"We monitored the situation and are satisfied that it is a civil matter that was resolved," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. "Not a [Personal Conduct Policy] issue."
On Monday, it was announced Manning had reached a settlement with three sports memorabilia collectors who sued him for providing them with fake "game-worn" items that were later sold to fans.
"[Plaintiffs] Eric Inselberg, Michael Jakab and Sean Godown have resolved all claims in their pending litigation against the New York Giants, Eli Manning, John Mara, William Heller, Joseph Skiba, Edward Skiba and Steiner Sports, in accordance with a confidential settlement agreement reached today," attorneys said in a joint statement, per ESPN.com news services. "The compromise agreement, entered into by all parties, should not be viewed as supporting any allegations, claims or defenses."
As Florio noted, the personal conduct policy can be used to discipline players who commit "[c]rimes of dishonesty such as blackmail, extortion, fraud, money laundering, or racketeering."
But because the case never went to trial, the NFL determined Manning won't have to worry about the possibility of a suspension.
