G.M. Les Snead said during Wednesday’s PFT Live that the team plans to explore addressing the receiver position in free agency. And they are.
A league source tells PFT that Giants receiver Mario Manningham will visit the Rams on Thursday night and Friday.
Manningham, who made a key, 38-yard catch on the game-winning drive in Super Bowl XLVI. But the Giants, with Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz (who will get a new contract at some point), likely can’t afford to pay market value to Manningham.
Especially with the market for receivers going a little haywire right now.
Still, the Rams desperately need to find more help for quarterback Sam Bradford, one of the rare bright spots on the roster. The quest begins with Manningham, who also has visited the 49ers. The Rams also are exploring the possibility of signing Steve Smith, the former Giant/Eagle.
