SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The agent for wide receiver Mario Manningham says the free agent has agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers on a two-year contract.

The former New York Giants wideout met Thursday with the 49ers, who also still appear to have interest in Peyton Manning after coach Jim Harbaugh worked him out Tuesday at Duke University.

Drew Rosenhaus confirmed Saturday night his client had reached a deal with the NFC West champions.

Manningham will join an upgraded receiving corps that also includes Randy Moss, who signed a one-year contract Monday.

Manningham caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning with 8:34 remaining in regulation of the eventual Super Bowl champion Giants' 20-17 overtime win over San Francisco in the NFC championship game.
