Draft Scout Mario Manningham News
03/18/14 - WR Mario Manningham agreed to a one-year contract with the Giants.
Manningham, 27, is returning to New York after two injury-plagued seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. He had just nine receptions for 85 yards in six games last season. Manningham was signed in 2012 to provide a deep threat in the 49ers' offense opposite Michael Crabtree.
When quarterback Alex Smith was displaced by Colin Kaepernick, Manningham did not seem to be on the same page with Kaepernick. In 2013, Kaepernick had a passer rating of 13.9 on attempts on which Manningham was the intended target.
"It was frustrating, but it was a learning experience also," Manningham said. "When I got back (from a knee injury), I couldn't do what I wanted to, I knew I needed a little bit more time. It's coming along and I just have to work on getting stronger and getting my strength back and trusting it more. I'm doing good; it's getting stronger."
Manningham played his first four seasons with the Giants.
"I'm happy to be back," Manningham said. "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.
"Once a Giant, always a Giant. That's how I feel. This is a very special place. I wanted to come back."
Manningham was a key part of the Giants' championship run following the 2011 season, catching touchdown passes in each of their three playoff victories and making a key fourth-quarter reception in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.
In his career, the 6-foot Manningham has 211 catches for 2,849 yards and 19 touchdowns in six seasons.
