[quote user="bigblue4417"]In an interview with The Vindicator of Youngstown, Ohio, Manningham said
he is "75 percent" sure he will sign with another team in free agency.
-- who was presented a key to his hometown, Warren, Ohio, on Friday --
said that there were many benefits of playing with a top-notch
quarterback like Eli Manning. But Manningham added that he would like a bigger role and more targets. </p>
is, but there are a lot of good quarterbacks in this league,"
Manningham told The Vindicator. "I just want the ball more, that's all."
Manningham's comments are different than the one he made
the day after his team's Super Bowl win, when he gave Giants fans hope
that he'd return.</p>
"I wanna come back," Manningham said at
that time. "I don't know what's going to happen, but I'm going to try to
enjoy this Super Bowl (win). I'm not really thinking about that right
When asked on Saturday if negotiations with Manningham are not going well, Reese replied, "it's free agency." </p>
13, that's free-agent time and guys are free to do what they want to
do," the general manager said. "Again, he's been a good player for us,
we'll see where we are when we know exactly what the cap number is and
hopefully things will work out for us." </p>
Reese refused to put any odds on the chances of Manningham returning. </p>
don't think it's fair to frame the odds on that," Reese said. "He's a
good football player and obviously players, when free agency comes
around for them, they want to make as much money as possible. So we'll
see how it unfolds. But he is a good football player and we're glad he's
been a Giant for us and his contributions are outstanding for us. We'll
see what happens moving forward with respect to that." </p>
During their press conferences at the scouting combine last week, both Giants coach Tom Coughlin and Reese talked about Jerrel Jernigan, last year's third-round pick, being a young player who may have an opportunity to make a jump this coming season. Ramses Barden also is in the mix at the third-receiver spot if Manningham leaves.</p>[/quote]
he deserves to go
he'd be a moron to stay for alot less money nad playing time.
We can't pay him anything even semi-good because of the cap hell we will be in in general, but especially with Cruz n Nicks coming up soon looking for deals
