New York Giants wide receiver had reportedly told an Ohio newspaper that he believes there’s a 75 percent chance that he won’t be back with the Giants in 2012.
During a radio interview with WFAN in New York on Tuesday, per the NY Daily News, Manningham said that the odds of him leaving are “50-50″ and that he never said 75 percent.
“I don’t think they’re ready to do anything,” said Manningham, when referring to whether the Giants will try to re-sign him.
“We’re not sure what’s going on right now,” Maninningham said “We’re just going to take it slow and see what’s going on, let the smoke clear a little bit. You just never know where I’m going to end up at.”
There were rumors buzzing around this past weekend that Manningham will end up with the Buccaneers.
“You know how the media do it,” Manningham said “I haven’t heard anything like that until the other day. People don’t really know what’s going on. They don’t know where I really want to go.”
Manningham was asked where he wants to go when he becomes a free agent.
“I want to stay here,” he said. “But if it’s not here, I’m sure it’s somewhere else.”
Once again, I really don’t see how the Giants can afford to keep Manningham since they’re already $9 million over the salary cap and have more important priorities to take care of.
