JAY BROMLEY UPDATE…
Following up on Saturday’s story that New York Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley alleged raped a woman he met online and later struck her with his car, the attorney for Bromley does not believe his client will be charged by police. “We have reviewed the allegations against Mr. Bromley and believe no crime has been committed,” said the attorney. “Accordingly, we do not expect him to be charged.”

The New York Daily News is reporting that a “source with knowledge of the investigation said police believe Bromley’s accuser has ‘significant credibility issues.'” The source told the paper, “They don’t think her story makes any sense.”

The New York Post is reporting that police are examining if the alleged victim has a history of extorting money from celebrities.

GIANTS IN THE PRO BOWL…
The 2016 Pro Bowl was played on Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The four Giants who played in the game performed as follows:

  • Quarterback Eli Manning started the game and was 6-of-9 for 75 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception (off a deflected pass).
  • Wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. caught two passes for 34 yards. He also played some safety on defense.
  • Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie picked off two passes, but also fumbled one of those interceptions back to the opposing team.
  • Place kicker Josh Brown was 3-for-3 on point-after attempts. He also threw an interception on a fake point-after attempt.

On the sidelines during the game, Manning was asked about the team’s head coaching change. “Well, it’ll be different,” Manning said. “I really feel it’s been a blessing to have coach (Tom) Coughlin as my coach for 12 years. He taught me so much about the game of football but also about being a man, a father. I’ve grown up in front of him. So I feel like I’ve learned a lot. I’m excited about coach (Ben) McAdoo next year. I have a great relationship with him as well, working with him these last two years. I think he’ll do a great job of taking control of this team and leading us in the right direction.”

New York Giants Meeting with Ben McAdoo Rescheduled for Monday: Due to inclement weather disrupting travel plans, the New York Giants meeting with Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo was rescheduled for Monday according to The Bergen Record. McAdoo, who is interviewing for the Giants vacant offensive coordinator position, was originally scheduled to meet with the team on Saturday.

The Giants have already met with Mike Sullivan (ex-Tampa Bay offensive coordinator), Dowell Loggains (ex-Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator), and Karl Dorrell (ex-Houston Texans quarterbacks coach). The Giants may also interview other candidates for offensive coordinator.

Jon Beason Wants to Return to the New York Giants: Linebacker Jon Beason, who will be an unrestricted free agent when free agency begins on March 11, told The New York Daily News on Friday that he wants to re-sign with the Giants. The Giants acquired Beason via trade on October 4th from the Carolina Panthers for a 7th round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

“I know it’s something that we both want to get done,” said Beason. “(The Giants) expressed interest that they want me back and I told them that we want to be back. The thing about it is, it’s got to work for both parties. Though you anticipate that it will, you never know. So for me right now it’s a waiting game. It’s early. The season is still going on and a lot of things will happen between now and March 11. So all is well. I’ll be playing ball next year and hopefully I’m a Giant.”
