Manningham wasn't my top choice WR this offseason, but at this point he is by far the best option. And of the tier two WRs he was one of the better ones I think.
He's at least as good as Morgan. Maybe not as reliable a route runner, but more likely to come up with a game breaking play. Seems like a good combo with Crabtree. Especially if Moss turns out to still be decent and we draft someone like Randel.
I am ok with the signing. He has great hands and body control. We'll have to see what kind of money he got. The only issues we have now:
1. Obviously QB.
2. RG hopefully Kilgore, a draft pick, or a vet signing can shore this up.
3. KR/PR. This worries me the most. Perrish Cox has some experience but he was out of the league for a year. Williams isn't a bad option desite his untimely meltdown. I still want Ginn back. This is such a key for the team. Perhaps there is a rookie in the later rounds?
