49ers got WR Mario Manningham on a two-year deal for quite a bit less than what Redskins paid Josh Morgan. http://bit.ly/GSrI92

Newly signed wide receiver Mario Manningham will account $2.487 million on the 49ers' 2012 salary cap, a league source told CSNBayArea.com on Friday.


The 49ers and Manningham agreed to a two-year, $7.375 million contract that includes a $2 million signing bonus and another $2.45 million in salary guarantees, the source said.

awesome find Valrod. Not bad, 2.487M isnt bad at all. Gonna calculate numbers and be right back.

"What a bargain! What a bargain for me!"

Seriously though. That's a great deal. Show's he's highly motivated over the next couple of years to prove he's a #1 or #2 and wants to be paid in his next contract, not this one and that playing time right now is more important.

Also speaks volumes on why he couldn't get more when average WRs were getting 6 million a year.
F/O kills it again!

2.4 million against the cap!

Wow what a steal.
LOL and morgan got 6 mil a yr when he accomplished way less than manningham
Now at $5.275M under before Ginn and Johnson, committed salaries at $121.682M for 2013 with Manningham, Alex, and draftees for 2012. Not including Johnson. Right now just under $28.4M under a $150M cap in 2013.
Interesting the Redskins didnt make a play for him considering they see him twice a year and they over paid for Morgan.

That is an interesting thought

Wow, thanks for that AB. Much lower than I would have thought. I wonder if Redskins went after Vincent Jackson if TB give Manningham a 30 milllion dollar deal? Remember how it was rumored early on he was going there. Definitely could have changed things when Redskins got hit with the penalty and they went after Garcon instead of Jackson.

This means with the 8.63-Ginn and johnson at say 2.5 equaling around 6ish and 4 for rookies we should be good to go with Manning only at 1.2 unless he has some bonuses in there. Means we are right around the 4 mark

right now between $5.6M-$6.6M under, take away $3M for Ginn and Johnson, leaves us around $3M under ish. Still some work can be done, Goldson can be extended and lower his $6.212M franchise number. Plus Sopoaga has a $3.8M base than can be lowered and add a few years onto his deal. And Haralson's $2.75M number is too high for a backup.

I don't see that at all. Especially if you are talking about Morgan's contract. Comparing anything to what the Skins do speaks about nothing put their willingness to shoot their load on anyone and anything to make a big splash on the first day or two of free agency.

Manningham wants to get paid big and prove he's a legit top WR (IMO), if that offer wasn't available, and it shouldn't have been because he hasn't had the playing time with the Giants for it to be, he wants playing time on a good time to prove it so he can get paid on his next contract.

I think it's a great deal considering how many free agent Wr's were overpayed this offseason.
Cheaper. Might end up better than Morgan. We'll see...

Skins clearly had their eyes on Garcon and Morgan (bigger WRs); once they signed, MM wasn't necessary.
Redskins are dumbasses....
Also interesting to note the style of WRs we've signed....Moss, Manningham and Ginn (though of course more of a STer) are all known for their speed/ability to get vertical, and not necessarily their blocking or ability/willingness to go over the middle. Bodes well for those of us who want to see our WRs get down the field, giving our TEs more room to navigate underneath against linebackers.
