49ers Sign Mario Manningham To 2-Year Deal, According To Report

The San Francisco 49ers looked to be having a relatively quiet offseason ... until this past week. The team has suddenly made a flurry of interesting moves, including signing the formerly-retired Randy Moss and supposedly attempting to lure superstar quarterback Peyton Manning. Now it appears as though they've acquired another top-flight wide receiver, perhaps with an eye to pairing him with Manning.

ProFootballTalk reported on Friday night that the 49ers and Mario Manningham have agreed on a two-year deal. Manningham, formerly with the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, was a productive part of a Manning-Manningham touchdown tandem ... although the Manning in question was Peyton's brother, Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning.

The signing will certainly do nothing but fuel the rumors about Peyton coming to San Francisco. Perhaps this was the final piece they needed to convince the free agent QB of their intent to go all the way and build a capable wideout selection for him. This certainly would go a long way toward supporting that theory.
