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 coach, Mike Sullivan, who is the new offensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Manningham would instantly become the #1 WR on the Bucs, who have a less than stellar passing attack, even though QB Josh Freeman is extremely talented. But make no mistake, Manningham is no #1, and hasn’t been since he was at Michigan.

Manningham says he is 75-percent sure he won’t be back with the Giants. GM Jerry Reese basically confirmed that by saying that initial talks haven’t gone well with the receiver who just completed his 4th year in the league. Manningham is probably looking at the biggest contract he will receive in his career, and there is no better time than now. However, Manningham shouldn’t expect too much. He has struggled with health over his career, and has a habit of running poor routes in addition to having bad feel awareness (Super Bowl sideline catch withstanding).
