Giants likely won’t franchise Mario Manningham

According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, the New York Giants will likely not place the franchise tag on wide receiver Mario Manningham.

The Giants are a franchise that typically never uses the the franchise tag any way and it looks like this year won’t be any different.

Manningham is a good receiver that has a knack for making plays, but he’s very inconsistent with his route running and sometimes makes routine catches more difficult then they need to be.
