Eli Manning working out at Duke with Giants receivers | NJ.com
Eli Manning is getting in some advance work with his receivers -- including Victor Cruz.

The Giants quarterback, along with older brother Peyton, is working out at Duke University this week, according to ESPN. The Mannings are there with Duke coach David Cutcliffe, a college coach of both brothers, as well as three Giants and three Broncos teammates.

Manning brought Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and recently signed Louis Murphy, per ESPN. The Giants offseason program begins next Monday, and Manning hopes Cruz is working alongside him in East Rutherford as well.

"I hope so," Manning told ESPN's Chris Mortensen, via ESPNNewYork.com. "I know he wants everything to get finished and be with the Giants and get back to work. It was great to get him here for a few days, and I haven't seen these guys in a while."

Richard Sherman: 'About half the league' uses Adderall - NFL.com
The attention deficit hyperactivity disorder medication Adderall has become the excuse du jour for players testing positive for a banned substance in the NFL. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman insists it's not just an excuse.

Sherman successfully appealed a four-game suspension last season due to a mishandled sample.

"About half the league takes it, and the league has to allow it," Sherman told Vancouver Sun reporter Mike Beamish on Tuesday. "The league made a mistake in my case. Obviously, I didn't do anything, but you have to go through a process to prove you didn't do anything. There are still naysayers out there who don't believe me. But I accept it. If everybody loves you, it probably means you're not much of a player."
