Mario Manningham Signing: Wide receiver returns to New York Giants

The Giants and Mario Manningham have agreed to terms on a one-year contract

The New York Giants and Mario Manningham have agreed on a one-year contract that will bring the 27-year-old back to where his career began, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that Manningham would be visiting the Giants and that both sides were interested in a reunion. The free-agent wide receiver spent the last two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. Manningham flew into New Jersey Monday night, took a physical this morning and signed his contract this afternoon.

Manningham spent his first four years in the NFL with the Giants after being drafted in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Michigan. The Ohio native caught 160 passes for 2,135 yards and 18 touchdowns during his four seasons in blue. Following the 2011 season, which culminated in a Super Bowl championship, Manningham left New York and signed a two-year, $7.35 million contract with the 49ers.

During his two seasons in the bay area, Manningham was ravaged by injures. In his first season, Manningham tore his ACL and PCL in his left knee on Dec. 23 and landed on the injured reserve. Manningham started the 2013 season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list (PUP) before being activated on Nov. 4, but landed on the IR once again on Dec. 27. He finished his two season's with just 50 receptions for 534 yards and one touchdown.

When healthy, Manningham is a deep threat and dangerous after the catch. He can be plugged into the lineup opposite Reuben Randle, allowing Victor Cruz and Jerrel Jernigan to play inside.

The terms of Manningham's contract are not yet known, other than the fact it is a one-year deal.
