Free-agent wide receivers have been flying off the board quickly on the first day of 2012 NFL Free Agency. Vincent Jackson signed a rich contract in Tampa Bay. The Washington Redskins reeled in Pierre Garcon, Josh Morgan and Eddie Royal. Before that all began, Randy Moss even found a home with the San Francisco 49ers.
Yet, New York Giants Super Bowl hero Mario Manningham has yet to find a home. There are whispers that perhaps the Minnesota Vikings might make a play for Manningham. The St. Louis Rams and Cincinnati Bengals could also be possibilities. Ralph Vacchiano still thinks Tampa Bay is in play.
What is keeping teams from knocking on Manningham's door? Maybe the fact that he reportedly wants to be paid like a No. 1 receiver when he, obviously, has never shown that's what he is. Oh, and maybe someone should tell Mario to stop ripping potential employers before they have a chance to make an offer.
It will be interesting to see how much longer Manningham stays on the market.
