49ers sign WR Mario Manningham to two-year deal

San Francisco Gate Chronicle - [Full Article]

The 49ers picked up another wide receiver for their yet-to-be-signed starting quarterback Saturday.

As the team awaited word from Peyton Manning on the place of his future employment, it signed former Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham to a two-year contract, according to a league source. Financial terms were not revealed. Earlier in the week, San Francisco signed Randy Moss, 35, to bolster a wide receiving corps in need of an upgrade in 2012.

Fantasy Impact: 

Manningham was looking for an upgrade from his WR3 situation in New York. He now finds himself jockeying for position on the WR depth chart in San Francisco with Michael Crabtree and newly-signed Randy Moss.
