Keep in mind that if there's only one year left on the contract (which will be the case with both OD and Manning next season), the only way you can restructure the contract is via an out and out pay cut. That may or may not be possible depending on a number of things, not the least of which is the players ego (ie: what he thinks he's worth compared to what he'd actually get on the open market).
Throw in the fact that both players (OD & Manning) are coming off of significant injuries, and I don't see the thought of straight out releasing them far-fetched in the slightest.
