- Kinkhabwala, citing a person apprised of meetings, adds that depending on how Manningham’s physical goes, a reunion is “definitely an option.”
Manningham’s name came up in recent days as potential option for the Panthers given that GM Dave Gettleman was with the Giants a few years ago, but it appears as though they may not even get a chance to meet with 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.
- According to Schefter, Manningham is “highly interested” in returning to the Giants.
The Giants have been taking a look at a number of players in recent week, so it will be interesting to see if they end up bringing Manningham back now that they have lost Hakeem Nicks.
