Eisen's Mailbag: Options for Wide Receiver


Do you think the Giants should re-sign Mario Manningham? His status was good with the Giants.** -Tommy

Dear Tommy:
I don't know if that's the best option right now to upgrade the receiving crops. Manningham is a free agent, but hasn't been healthy since tearing his ACL in 2012, his first season in San Francisco. He played in only six games last season, the second in a row that ended with him on injured reserve. The Giants need a receiver, but would prefer one in optimal health.

When are the Giants going to address their cornerback need - a starting quality cornerback opposite Prince (Amukamara) and who do you think is option?

Dear Will:
I don't know when, to be honest with you, but I'm sure they will at some point. You don't have to fill every need or sign X numbers of players in the first three days of free agency. Good players are still on the market and more will become available. The draft is still two months way. Plenty of time and opportunity exists for the Giants to bring in a corner or two. Patience is often the best course of action.

Will the Giants attempt to get a wide receiver in free agency or maybe the draft?

Dear Brennan:
Since it appears one of our starting receivers from 2013 will not return to the team, it seems imperative that the Giants add one or more receivers. But again, give it time. The draft, for example, is supposed to be particularly strong at receiver.
