Found February 29, 2012 on Giants Football Today:
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.

Manningham: 'I didn't say that'

Wide receiver Mario Manningham denied Tuesday saying that there is a 75 percent chance he would leave the Giants in free agency. "I didn't say that," Manningham said on WFAN Tuesday morning.

Manningham will "see what's up" in free agency

Mario Manningham claims he never said there was a 75 percent chance that he’d wind up signing with a team other than the Giants, as was reported over the weekend, but the wide receiver who will be a free agent two weeks from today did put his odds at staying with the Giants at “50 percent” in an interview on WFAN this morning.

Manningham Bound For Tampa Bay?

Wide receiver Mario Manningham is not expected to re-sign with the Giants, and it is believed he will end up with the Buccaneers. Fantasy Spin: This should be regarded as a rumor for the time being, but going to Tampa Bay would make sense for Manningham, as Mike Williams is coming off a disappointing second campaign and Arrelious Benn is yet to establish himself as their No. 2 receiver...

Super Mario ups the odds on his return

 The odds of Mario Manningham returning to the Giants just got a little better.   The Super Bowl hero insisted that he never said he’s “75 percent” sure he won’t be back with the Giants next season. Instead, in an interview on WFAN on Tuesday morning, he put the odds at “50-50”.   But the ...

Mario Manningham is “75%” sure he’s leaving the Giants

I still believe that it is in the stars that the Raiders will make a contract offer at some point. They always give Super Bowl heroes ridiculous contracts. I know Al Davis is dead, but in his name, they will probably give New York Giants WR, Mario Manningham, as $60 million deal. Until that time arrives, Manningham is probably considering on reuniting with former Giants QB and WR...

Domenik Hixon likely to return to Giants

With Mario Manningham expected to leave the Giants in free agency, there will be opportunities for other receivers with the team next season. Domenik Hixon is hoping to take advantage of some of those opportunities. Hixon’s agent told Mike Garofalo of the Newark Star-Ledger that he is “hoping to finalize” a deal keeping Hixon with…

Plax: Giants wanted me; I didn’t want them

Plaxico Burress is an unrestricted free agent again, which has led to some speculation that the Giants might make a run at him – especially in the likely event that Mario Manningham goes elsewhere. I don’t see that happening, because I still don’t think the Giants really wanted him last ...

Mario Manningham doesn’t feel the love in New York

Having Hakeem Nicks and the emergence of Victor Cruz, Mario Manningham isn’t feeling the love in New York. The Super Bowl hero, who made the play of the game with an unbelievable over the shoulder catch, gave his prediction on the Giants retaining him. Manningham gave 75% as a number that represented his odds of leaving the Giants. While General Manager Jerry Reese refused...
