Mario Manningham, one of the New York Giants' most productive receivers from 2008-2011, will rejoin the team.

Manningham, a hero in the 2012 Super Bowl victory over New England, spent the last two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

Those two seasons with the 49ers were cut short by injury. In 2012, he played in 12 games before tearing his ACL and missing San Francisco's post-season run to the Super Bowl. Last year, he began the season on the physically unable to perform list, returned to play in six games, but again ended up on injured reserve because of recurring issues with his knee.

He was the Giants' third-round draft choice in 2008, the 95th overall selection. In four years, he caught 160 passes for 2,315 yards and 18 touchdowns.
