I say he should get a one year veteran minimum deal. The guy was pretty good for us last year and is a proven receiver. He gets an opportunity to prove he can still play and we know the coaches will actually use him. If he balls out, he gets to move on for more money or possibly remain with us if we lose Crabtree or don't have Boldin. It would be a typical Trent Baalke minimum risk type of contract and we know what we'd be getting from Mario. Then we enter into training camp with Crabtree, Manningham, Patton, Baldwin, 2 or 3 rookies, and possibly Anquan Boldin. Best 5 or 6 make the roster.
I think once Mario Manningham gets fully healthy he makes a good #2 receiver and a great #3.
