Mario Manningham: 'Once a Giant, always a Giant'

Mario Manningham is officially back with the Giants after spending the last two years in San Francisco Follow @BigBlueView From the moment Mario Manningham's contract with the San Francisco 49ers expired, rendering the 27-year-old a free agent, there wasn't a doubt in his mind where he wanted the next chapter of his football career to take him. In fact, Manningham preferred the pages just be turned back to the very beginning, with the same team that lit up his cell phone on draft day six years ago -- the New York Giants. "Once a Giant, always a Giant," Mannningham told Giants.com's...

WR Mario Manningham returns to Giants

Mario Manningham was drafted by the Giants and played for them from 2008-11. He was serviceable if not outstanding during his time in New York. His best numbers came in 2010, when he caught 60 passes for 944 yards and nine touchdowns. But the 2011 postseason -- and more specifically, one unbelievable catch down the sideline late in Super Bowl XLVI -- made Manningham some money. He signed a two-year deal worth more than $7 million less than two months later with the 49ers. However, Manningham's two years with them were largely forgettable and headlined by a devastating knee injury in December...

Super Mario 2: Manningham returns to Giants

The last time Giants fans saw Mario Manningham, the receiver was tip-toeing along the sideline to haul in a critical late-game pass from Eli Manning, sparking Big Blue to a game-winning drive over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Three years later, he's back.    

Manningham doesn't solve WR problem

There's nothing wrong with the New York Giants bringing back wide receiver Mario Manningham. I'm sure it costs them something very close to the absolute minimum and that if he doesn't bounce back from his knee problems they can move on with very little pain. They like him, Eli Manning likes him and there's upside there if he can get healthy. He was a tremendous asset to them during their 2011-12 postseason and, of course, helped win the Super Bowl with one of the biggest catches in franchise history.
