Free agent wide receiver Mario Manningham spent his Thursday visiting with the San Francisco 49ers and then, like Steve Smith, visiting with the St. Louis Rams. And although the latter seems to be a likely destination, former New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer believes there's still a chance he returns to Big Blue.
"I think there is a chance," Toomer said. "There's such a deep pool of receivers this year in free agency, and a deep pool of draftable receivers that he might find it may be his best bet to have another year to prove himself, and make some big plays with the Giants."
In addition to addressing the Manningham situation, Toomer touched on the pickle Big Blue finds themselves in when it comes to Victor Cruz. Should they pay him now? Should they pay him later? And what are the risks of both? Needless to say, it's a tough situation to be in for the Giants and it could go either way.
Finally, Toomer touched on the Twitter war he had with Jeremy Shockey on Thursday morning, standing by his comments that Shockey is a bad teammate and worse person. He referred back to several instances during Shockey's tenure with the Giants, and even mentioned the tight end getting out of line with Eli Manning in the huddle.
