Mario Manningham is just 24 hours removed from an unforgettable catch that helped propel the New York Giants to victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. But already, he’s talking about his impending free agency this offseason.
“I wanna come back,” Manningham told ESPN New York. “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m going to try to enjoy this Super Bowl. I’m not really thinking about that right now.”
The 25-year-old wide receiver is just finishing up his four-year, $3.2 million contract with the Giants. While he wants to remain with the reigning champions, his name has also been rumored in connection with the Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears.
Manningham recorded five catches for 73 yards in the Giants’ Super Bowl win, including a 38-yard catch from Eli Manning with 3:39 left in the fourth quarter that led to the go-ahead touchdown in the final minute.
