Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Tuesday morning Giants-related headlines.

Eli Manning reacts to Tom Brady suspension

Giants' quarterback Eli Manning reacted to the news of Tom Brady's Deflategate suspension by saying "you have to follow the rules." From the Daily News, here is Manning's complete remark:

"I don’t like to see anybody get suspended, I don’t like to see anybody get in trouble, so in no way am I glad to see this happen," Manning said, moments after the news was announced. "I think it is about integrity and you have to follow the rules. So if someone’s breaking rules I understand they’re going to get punished."

Newsday's Bob Glauber says the loss of that integrity is a bigger sanction against the Patriots than the Brady suspension or the loss of a pair of draft picks.

ESPN says Brady should skip an appeal of the suspension and "come clean right now."

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has apparently been spending gobs of taxpayer money to entertain during Giants and Jets games at MetLife Stadium.

Former Giant running back Ahmad Bradshaw pled no contest to a marijuana possession charge.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson thinks his Washington Redskins will be the best team in the NFC East this year:

"Well if you want to be political and say on paper, I think all the ESPN guys and all the bloggers will probably say the Dallas Cowboys," Jackson told Kevin Sheehan. "But in my eyes, I already think we’re going to surprise a lot of people this year. I’ll say once again, I’m excited about the new additions that [have] come in. Really, we just have to kind of build a camaraderie. So once the season starts and we’re ahead full speed, I think we’re gonna surprise a lot of people, and a lot of people are really gonna be saying, ‘Wow, those guys are pretty good.’ So once the season starts — I’m not gonna put too much pressure on us — but I think we’ll be the team to beat this year."

The New York Jets were one of many NFL teams to accept money for paying tribute to the military, and an Army hero is ripping them for it.

The Dallas Star-Telegram has a look at how the Cowboys remade their once-wobbly offensive line. SB Nation's Blogging The Boys says the Cowboys are scrounging through undrafted free agents for a kick returner, since the guy who used to do that job for them is now with the Giants.
