Mario Manningham will once again link up with the New York Giants next season, per reports.

ESPN's Adam Schefter today revealed that the NYC franchise has completed a deal that will see the wide receiver return to the team he left in 2011.

Manningham has spent two injury hit seasons away with the San Francisco 49ers but, according to Schefter, will re-sign with the Giants on a one-year deal.

In his previous stint with the team, the 27-year old helped the Giants to Super Bowl XLVI, catching a key pass in the final phase of the game to help set up the victory against the New England Patriots.

He ended that game with 5 catches for 73 yards.

His most productive year with the Giants was in 2010 however when he caught 60 passes for 944 yards and nine touchdowns.

After having to watch from the sidelines for much of his time in California, an ACL injury hampering his 49ers career, both Manningham and the Giants will be hoping he can return to previous form.

Manningham is a solid fit for the team after they saw Hakeem Nicks leave for the Indianapolis Colts this free agency.
