Mario Manningham agrees to terms with Giants

Mario Manningham is returning to New York, where he played from 2008-2011, after a two-year stint with the 49ers. The former Michigan wide receiver has agreed to terms with the Giants, and it's a one-year deal, according to PFT.com.
During his time with San Francisco, Manningham appeared in just 18 games, catching 51 passes for 534 yards and one touchdown. Originally a third-round pick, Manningham played in 50 games with the Giants, and caught 160 passes for 2,849 yards and 19 touchdowns. His best season came in 2010, when he had 60 receptions for 977 yards and nine scores.
But injuries slowed the 27-year-old in recent years; he suffered a torn ACL in 2012 and landed on injured reserve late last season.
“I’m happy to be back,” Manningham said, via the Giants web site. “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," he continued. "That’s how I feel. This is a very special place. I wanted to come back.”
