    He probably wanted too much money.

      Seems WR are making their money this year, so I wouldn’t be surprised that even a borderline decent guy would be demanding more scratch than what he’s worth. It is interesting to see the Cowboys losing a lot of their offensive weapons, they better hope Austin stays on the field this year.

      • Big Daddy says:

        I wonder why nobody is jumping to sign Manningham.

        I think a few guys got the bucks and the rest won’t, it always seems that way. Then a year or so later they either get cut or traded or have to redo their contract.

        This might have also been a message to Manningham that you’re not as good as you think and we can replace you very easily. Maybe the Giants really do not want Manningham back. I’m not a huge Manningham fan but he does know the offense a bit and has some skills. Maybe another year and he will get it together. There are just too many issues with his game, it’s possible Reese feels those issues are not correctable after all his time here. He has the elite physical ability but not the mindset of an elite player.

        This draft is going to have some sleeper WRs in it. Some are moving up the draft ladder like Brian Quick. But there are others like Wes Kemp that might not even get drafted.

        I trust Reese, he will find options. Nicks and Cruz right now are a great set of receivers, but there is always the injury issue and depth is a concern. I am hoping Jernigan and Barden fill that void.

          Manningham may just be asking for too much money. He may want #1 money and he is no #1.

          Yet it’s still early in the FA process and it’s still a sellers market. Lots of teams need WR. Odds are improving for a return to the Giants but they still are long.

          Depth is an issue at WR and I wouldn’t mind drafting Hill at 32 – if he’s still there.

        • Jason C. says:

          Yeah I wouldn’t be too concerned if we lose Manningham, but it would be nice to keep him if his price doesn’t really hit the ceiling like we all expected it would. Now that most of the big spenders are out of the market at WR (Redskins, Indy, Jags, 49ers, Buccs, New Orleans, Chicago and the Chargers all locked in wide receivers) the only teams I see going after him are Miami, Cincy, Arizona and the Rams, neither of which I see throwing big money at him.
