He was educated at De La Salle High School, and during his time there, played with the school’s team. After matriculating, he attended the University of Michigan and played with the Michigan Wolverines football team, but mainly as a backup to Mercury Hayes although still able to make strong performances, becoming a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award in 1994. He became a starter the following season, and finished his college career ranked second in school history in receiving yards.

Toomer joined the 1996 NFL Draft and was selected by the New York Giants during the second round. He signed a three year deal with the Giants which started to increase his net worth. He was primarily used as a punt and kick-off returner during his first three seasons, and led the NFL during his rookie season in yards on punt returns, even though he spent the latter part of the season on the injured reserve list. After treatment for exercise-induced asthma in 1999, his skills started to blossom. He became the starting wide receiver, and broke team records the following season, then reached Super Bowl XXXV in 2000, although losing to the Baltimore Ravens. 2002 was considered his best year, with several single season records with eight touchdowns from 82 receptions and 1,343 receiving yards, one of five consecutive seasons with at least 1000 receiving yards.

Amani didn’t score a touchdown in 2004 but still continued to play as a starter in the next season. He had a strong 2006, but it was cut short due to a partially torn ACL. In 2007, he returned from injury to appear in all games of the season, and the team would advance through the playoffs and eventually win Super Bowl XLII against the previously undefeated New England Patriots.

2008 would become his final season with the team; he appeared in all 15 regular season games, and concluded his career with 190 games, 142 of which he played as a starter. He holds the Giants record for receptions, consecutive games with at least one reception, receiving touchdowns, and receiving yards. He signed a one year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009 but was cut before the roster was finalized. The following year, he was inducted into the New York Giants Ring of Honor.

After retiring, Toomer started working as a broadcaster, joining the coverage of “Friday Night Football” by MSG Varsity. In 2012, he then joined NBC Sports Radio and is a co-host of the show “Going Deep with Amani & Dan”.
