Eli Manning Forgets Reasons Why He Refused To Play For Chargers 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Dec 5, 2013 1:35 am

Eli Manning forced the San Diego Chargers to trade him in a draft day deal with the New York Giants in what was an embarrassing moment.


Manning was visibly upset when he had to take a picture with a Chargers' uniform when he was drafted.


"I forgot, I think," said Manning. "I just can't remember; it's been 10 years. It slipped my mind."


The NFL was honoring the late Pat Tillman during that draft as he was killed in action just weeks earlier, further embarrassing Manning.
