The New York Giants have reached out in the free agency period and brought back one of their own for the offensive side of the ball as Adam Schefter is reporting that the team and former wide receiver Mario Manningham have agree to terms on a one-year deal.

Among the Giants faithful, Manningham is a bit of a legend as he made one of the crucial catches on the final drive in the second Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots, tip-toeing the sideline to help secure the victory.
Manningham has spent the last two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, where things didn’t go quite as well for him as they did in New York. After signing a two-year deal, Manningham suffered a torn ACL in his first season in 2012, and then struggled to recover from that in 2013.
For his sake, a return to New York might be exactly what he needs, and we know it’s definitely what Eli Manning needs.
