According to both Paul Schwartz of the New York Post and Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, Manningham and the Rams are currently in contract negotiations. La Canfora reports that St. Louis is “pushing” to sign Manningham. Per Schwartz, the sides are trying to “hammer out terms” of a deal.
So in that regard, Manningham has the receiver-needy Rams right where he wants them. Perhaps he’ll get the “No. 1 receiver money” he’s made it no secret he’s seeking.
