Manningham talking to three teams
By Ohm Youngmisuk
Wide receivers have been making headlines during the free agency period with Vincent Jackson going to Tampa Bay and Detroit extending Calvin Johnson for serious cash.
Mario Manningham said recently that he was going to wait to see how the market shakes out and hope for the best. According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Manningham's camp is having early conversations with three teams -- San Francisco, Miami and Buffalo. According to ProFootballTalk.com, Manningham will visit with the Niners on Thursday.
Manningham played against all three teams this season, including facing the Niners twice. So he clearly impressed all three teams. San Francisco saw Manningham have a potential game-tying touchdown go off his finger tips against the Niners in their regular-season meeting but also watched the receiver catch a clutch 17-yard touchdown in the NFC Championship game. Here's how Manningham did against all three teams this past season.
vs BUF -- 5 receptions, 56 yards.
vs MIA -- 6 receptions, 63 yards, 1 TD.
at SF -- 6 receptions, 77 yards, 1 TD.
at SF (NFC Championship) -- 1 reception, 17 yards, 1 TD.
