This one might be a tough one for Giants fans to handle because of what happened on Sunday night.
Mario Manningham's 38-yard catch on the sideline got the Giants going late in the fourth quarter, and many Giants fans will always remember the play.
Manningham may now take the great game and the highlight-reel catch into free agency with momentum and cash in.
On the Giants, Manningham is the No. 3 receiver behind Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz.
If Manningham were to take less money, I could see him back on the Giants.
But let's face it, there are a ton of teams out there who need help at wide receiver and will give Manningham top-receiver money to jump ship.
Is Manningham worth top-receiver money? No. He's a No. 3 receiver at best, which is what he played like in 2011 with 39 catches for 523 yards and four touchdowns.
If the Giants have a chance to bring Steve Smith back, who according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, said back in late November that Smith is very much open to returning to the Giants, especially after how disappointing his season was with the Philadelphia Eagles.
If Smith is genuine in returning, Manningham is playing elsewhere in 2012 because, when you really look at it, Smith would cost the Giants less money and he was always a favorite target for Eli Manning to throw to.
