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.
