NFL Rumors: New York Giants interested in Mario Manningham

Although the New York Giants have made a few signings (They officially agreed to a deal with former Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Walter Thurmond on Sunday), for the most part, they have been quiet.

However, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the Giants are interested in bringing back one of their Super Bowl heroes.

Manningham was originally drafted by the Giants with the 95th overall pick in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

After playing in just seven games and making four catches as a rookie, the former Michigan Wolverine  made 57 catches for 822 yards and five touchdowns in 2009.

His moment came during Super Bowl XLVI when he caught a 38 yard pass late in the fourth quarter to set up a game-winning touchdown that won the Giants their fourth Super Bowl. After the season, Manningham signed with the San Francisco 49ers.

Last season, Manningham played in just six games and had only nine catches for 85 yards.
