Mario Manningham’s time as a 49er is apparently over.
The seventh-year wide receiver reportedly agreed Monday to a one-year contract with the New York Giants, whom he helped lift to a Super Bowl title in 2011, ending a two-year run with the San Francisco 49ers that was halted by a significant knee injury.
That leaves the 49ers with Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and a slew of unproven reserves — Quinton Patton, Jon Baldwin, Chuck Jacobs, Brandon Carswell, David Reid, Demarco Sampson and Devon Wylie at wide receiver. The team reportedly showed interest in signing Julian Edelman, Hakeem Nicks and Emmanual Sanders. But all three free agents signed elsewhere, Edelman with the Patriots, Nicks with the Colts and Sanders with the Broncos.
Manningham, 27, tore the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments during a Dec. 23, 2012 game against Seattle while being tackled by Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill. Manningham finished the season as the 49ers’ second-leading receiver (42 catches, 449 yards, one touchdown) behind Crabtree.
The injury effectively ended Manningham’s 2013 season as well. He returned to the field in a Nov. 10 loss to Carolina but called it quits five games later after he reaggravated the injury. Manningham was placed on injury reserve on Dec. 27.
Manningham is the fourth free agent to part ways with the 49ers this week, joining safety Donte Whitner, cornerback Tarell Brown and running back Anthony Dixon.
