Eli Manning had to tell Giants draft pick Davis Webb not to call him ‘sir’

Eli Manning still has a boyish look to him at the advanced age of 36, and he’s not quite ready to take on the role of elder statesman for the Giants.

Look no further than the introductory conversation Manning had with Davis Webb, his latest potential heir apparent, after New York took the California quarterback in the third round of the NFL Draft.

According to the police report (via TMZ.com), Anderson is accused of fighting with security at the Rolling Loud music festival and was asked to leave. When he refused, a Miami police lieutenant got involved and when he instructed Anderson to sit down on the ground, “he tensed his body and pushed [the lieutenant]. [Anderson] was redirected to the ground and continued to fight with police and security.”

The Jets issued a statement Monday (via Newsday) saying, “We are aware of the situation. This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comment at this time.”

As an undrafted rookie last season, Anderson — a 6-3, 190-pounder out of Temple — had 42 catches for 587 yards and two touchdowns in 2016.

This is not how the Patriots have been known to spend in their backfield, and it seems odd with White still in the fold. But Gillislee is a big upgrade over Blount, and Burkhead, who once had to fill in at wide receiver in a playoff game for Cincinnati, can be a stronger, more durable receiving back than oft-injured Dion Lewis.

Fresh, healthier legs, combined with the dependable White, will give the Patriots even better balance and support for Brady.
