Wide receiver Mario Manningham will return to New York next season on a one-year deal with the Giants, according to a report Tuesday afternoon from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The 27-year-old had spent three years with the Giants after making his NFL debut in New York in 2008. Two years after signing a two-year, $7.3 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, Manningham returns to the New York team with which he won a Super Bowl in 2012 over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

His season with San Francisco was cut short in December 2012 after he tore the ACL and PCL in his left knee against the division rival Seattle Seahawks, and was subsequently ruled out for the rest of the season. Last year, he was sent to the IR for a second year in a row after catching just nine passes.

In his six seasons with the Giants, he has recorded 2,2849 yards and 19 touchdowns. His best season came in 2010 when he caught 60 passes for 944 yards and recorded nine touchdowns.

Manningham's addition comes as just another move for the Giants during a busy offseason. The team has also signed free agent defensive backs Dominique Rodgers-CromartieWalter Thurmond and Quintin Demps, running back Rashad Jennings, offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz and kick returner Trindon Holliday.
