Jerry Reese's action-packed Sunday isn't done yet.

Free agent and former New York Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham will be visiting with the team on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Manningham spent the last two years in San Francisco.

According to Schefter, both parties are highly interested in a reunion. Manningham spent his first four seasons with New York after being drafted in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Manningham had his most successful season in 2010 when he caught 60 passes for 944 yards and nine touchdowns.

Following the 2011 season, Manningham signed a two-year, $7.375 million contract with the San Francisco 49ers, but was plagued by injuries both seasons. When healthy, the 27-year-old is a tremendous deep threat and could prove the perfect compliment to both Reuben Randle and Victor Cruz. With Manningham in the lineup, Cruz will be allowed to play in the slot while both he and Randle man the outside.

The Michigan-alum is most remembered for his over-the-shoulder grab in New York's 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
