Default Re: Danieal Manning S, signs with Texans

The scoop on Danieal Manning

The Texans addressed their last gaping hole on the defense late Thursday night when they agreed to terms with ex-Bears safety Danieal Manning.

Mark Berman of Fox 26 Sports in Houston reported that Manning received a four-year deal worth $20 million, including $9 million guaranteed.

The news of the Manning signing came on the heels of the Texans agreeing to terms with another free agent defensive back, Johnathan Joseph, formerly of the Bengals.

The signings of Joseph and Manning shore up the weakest link on a defense that was embarrassingly bad last season. Manning will line up opposite Glover Quin at safety while Joseph becomes the Texans top corner.

It's funny how name association works because when I read about the signing around 1:00 a.m. local time this morning, the first thing that came to mind was the 2008 season finale when the Texans beat the Bears at Reliant Stadium.

Manning got a lot of playing time in that game after Bears safety Mike Brown was placed on injured reserve a few days earlier. Manning didn't have a good game, biting on a play fake by Matt Schaub which allowed Andre Johnson to score on a long TD pass, and then fumbling the ensuing kickoff to get the Texans right back in the game after falling behind 10-0 early.
