GIANTS' MARIO MANNINGHAM TO HIT FREE-AGENT MARKET, REPORT SAYS (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/02/giants_mario_manningham_to_hit.html)

"When folks have asked me whether Mario Manningham will be back with the Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants), my educated guess on the matter has
been that he's a goner.<div class="entry-content">


The 38-yard toe-tapping catch in the Super Bowl was a money maker for him, no
doubt, and there would surely be a team out there ready to pay him what the
Giants aren't willing and/or able to pay. They're over the salary cap and have
two other wide receivers higher on the depth chart who will soon require sizable
contract extensions.</p>


Plus, as Manningham showed when he ran the wrong route on the next play after
the big catch in the Super Bowl, he still makes the occasional mental mistake.
As I said in <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/02/super_bowl_xlvi_game_review_gi.html">my
Super Bowl XLVI game review</a>, the sideline catch is why he'll get paid but
the next play is why it won't be by the Giants.</p>


Well, ProFootballTalk.com is reporting this morning <a href="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/02/24/manningham-prepares-to-enter-free-agency/">Manningham
will hit the free-agent market</a>, as expected. PFT says there's been no
progress on talks over the past few weeks.</p>


Is that an example of posturing? Nah. And the fact it's already at this
point, 18 days before the start of free agency, tells you Manningham's prospects
of being a Giant next year." </p></div>

Talk is reporting that the Giants and Manningham are not making any positive
progress in their contract talks and that the wide receiver is ready to enter
free agency.</p>
<blockquote>


"Per league source, receiver <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Mario Manningham" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/mario-manningham/" rel="tag nofollow">Mario
Manningham</a> has made no progress on new deal with the Giants and will enter
free agency," PFT tweeted (https://twitter.com/#%21/ProFootballTalk/status/173024704280535041).</p></blockquote>


This doesn't come as a huge surprise since Manningham is likely seeking a
much larger deal than the Giants are willing to give, but to see that absolutely
no progress has been made is unfortunate nonetheless.</p>


With a very stacked list of free agent or potential free agent wide
receivers, Super Mario and agent <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Drew Rosenhaus" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/drew-rosenhaus/" rel="tag nofollow">Drew
Rosenhaus</a> may not receive the offer they're both hoping for. Much like the
case with running back Ahmad Bradshaw a year ago, multiple free agent options
will likely drive down the price for Mario and he'll ultimately be forced to
settle for less than he and Rosenhaus value him at.</p>


Will that spell a last second return to Big Blue? Time will tell."</p>

The only two on the main list that I'd take MM over is Steve Johnson and Robert Meachum.

All of the others are an upgrade over MM (even including age).

$7M / year?</P>


He isnt getting that anywhere. Not even teams like SF or Jax who have no WRs and plenty of $$$.</P>


Manham will get overpaid, but he is still a solid WR. </P>


Look for more Jernigan/Barden next year. Maybe a draft pick on a WR.</P>

I'd remove Jackson, Colston, Welker, Wallace and Bowe from that list since they'll probably be staying put. If that does happen, Manningham becomes a top 5 free agent wide out.

Thanks for the read ! I'm happy for him and glad to see all his hard work all thru out his contract paying off for him and his family. He will always have a special place in Giants history and like the saying goes, " Once a Giant, always a Giant " .

Kid will be a Giant for life in my eyes. This kid should look toward getting as much money as possible before he retires.

He's going to need a good QB and hope some team doesn't sign him to a fortune. That would mean it would cost more for Cruz and Nicks in time.

exactly. cofield, boss, smith and plax already had a ring. as nice as it is to get more, not many can say they even had one - and each was a valued contributor in XLII. Now go take care of your family as best as possible in this brutal career.

Harooni Q what do you think he can get on the open market?

I feel he may be worth about max 2 mil a year.

There is so much that goes into these decisions that we never hear about. I am sure Mario will get a decent contract somewhere and I'm very grateful that we have Nicks and Cruz to absorb the loss. I also hope we have our # 3 already on the roster.

I have a serious question,what can the Giants do if anything to get compensation for Mario?Are they able to slap one of those transition tags or something along those lines on Mario to get at least a pick for him?How does that work,and do Mario qualify for such a move.

You can franchise him and trade him.

But we have no leverage to do that because we can't afford that, so there's really nothing we can do.
