Giants Officially Sign WR Mario Manningham

Update:

The New York Giants announced that WR Mario Manningham signed a contract and will be returning to the team he spent four years with before spending the last two seasons in San Francisco.

I’m happy to be back,” Manningham said, via Michael Eisen of Giants.com, “I’m real excited. It’s just great to see everybody, be around familiar faces, knowing everybody in the past and just being comfortable around everybody.”

Manningham added “Once a Giant, always a Giant. That’s how I feel. This is a very special place. I wanted to come back.”

He appeared in just 18 games over the course of two years in San Francisco, which is largely due to a season knee injury he suffered back in 2012.

Manningham will likely battle for the No. 4 WR slot.

——————-

Pro Football Talk reports that the Giants have signed WR Mario Manningham to a one-year contract.

The Panthers also came up as a speculative option for Manningham, but they never met with him, and it appeared as though the Giants were the most likely landing spot for him.

Manningham, 27, left the Giants two years ago when signed a two-year contract worth $7.375 million with the 49ers.

He appeared in just 18 games over the course of two years in San Francisco, which is largely due to a season knee injury he suffered back in 2012.
