  • Manningham / Giants Can't Come to Terms

    http://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/...er-free-agency

    It's being reported that MM and the Giants couldn't work out a deal so MM will indeed hit the FA market.

    Not really surprising.

      I'm sure the Giants fair offer was like 3-4 mil per year, if that.

      Our only hope is that he hits the market and like Bradshaw, comes galloping home.

      Then again, maybe like Derrick Ward, we don't take him back, because we have already replaced him with, say Steve Smith, or have moved on with the idea of Barden or Jernigan playing significantly more snaps.

        Much success to him. Except vs Big Blue...

          Mario, Mario, Mario,




          Get your signing bonus from someone and fall into obscurity, you have a great opporutinty to play with one of the best QB's in the league along with a great supporting cast with Nicks and Cruz, but you choose be greedy, look at the others that left the GMEN looking for the Golden Goose, where are they now.




          Take a decent offer and be in the playoffs on a regular basis or play for a wanna be play off team.




          Don't understand how a player who got where they are because of the love of the game, all to turn it all away for money, I am sure the GMEN gave him a fair deal which would have set him up forever with a 4 year deal.

          Forget the Past, Live for the Future!

            I think this was obvious.




            We have no cap room, and MM will get a big payday from a team with 40+M free.

              It's his career. If you get offered more money to do what you do, you usually accept. It's basically a promotion.

                It's not like MM hasn't already made more money then you probably will have made in your life, or will probably more than quadruple that figure over the course of the rest of his career (with or without the Giants).

                Of course most people his age aren't going to think in that regard and indeed, the more money (independant of its irrelevance) may be his driving motivation.

                Shrug.

                  I really don't blame players for taking the money when it's offered. One bad play and their career could be over. If they're only on a minimal, incentive-based contract when that happens, they're basically screwed.
                  It's the same position Kevin Boss was in last season. They want to come back, but at the same time they have to do what's best for them.


                  Anyway, for all we know, Manningham could still achieve those things - no-one knows where he's going to end up yet.

                  ...the Patriots are in the market for a deep threat, and they have a penchant for signing players who've burned them in the past.

                    I'd take that pay to be on a playoff team in a heart beat.

                    Unfortunately, these players care a lot about the money.

                    Good for him though, I hope he does well somewhere else if he gets that opportunity

                      Hey Mario. You had to of heard the same video we heard of BB talking up His D. Being the 3rd option with Eli is better than ( GULP ) #1 on the Bucs, Rams, Cheifs,Titans, Browns.

                        I know Mario made that great catch but before that he was a streaky WR who was prone to making mistakes in his route running, but I always had the feeling that he still hadn't reached his full potential and if thats true then he really doesn't deserve top WR money until he actually becomes one..

                          Money is relative. All of those things you listed are possible with another team. He might even end up getting thrown to more somewhere else without Cruz and Nicks. I don't care how high and mighty you might feel... if you are offered more than twice your salary (no matter the number) you are going to feel wanted. Besides, look at Tiki, I bet he wishes he made more during his time in the NFL. You never know what will happen, and if the opportunity to make a large salary is there, you would be stupid not to take it.

                          Show class, be a Giants fan.

                            Why do so many people expect him to take less money from the Giants because they have good people to put around him. Why whould he not test his worth on the open market.




                            I love all the people that say "if I were a pro I would take less money to be on a playoff team, blah, blah, blah". This is total BS...




                            All of us, no matter what profession, would want to make the most money we could possibly make doing our chosen career path.

                              Whatever happens to Manningham I will never begrudge him for taking more money. This is a business and it goes both ways. Thank you for the catches you made Mario!

                              If he takes a big contract with a team other than the Giants, he will have represented the Giants with class during his tenure in NY.
