Default Re: Manning released

Okay, I'm scrambling around trying to figure out whether it the the Giants or Broncos that released "Manning" and why?

Waited to publish this, but apparently Manning was asked to take a pay that would have put his contract in the neighborhood of the one Clemons signed...

From what I understand, Clemons got a similar salary to what Manning was offered in the pay cut the #Texans asked him to take.

Chris Clemons counts $1.15 million against the cap this year.

Chris Clemons two years for 2.7 mil and 450,000 guaranteed.
Would have been a hefty cut, although he'll likely find the market not much higher. What's interesting is...

Texans saved $4.5 million on cap by waiving Manning, making them more than $13 million under the cap.
Appears we're stockpiling cap room... to target a free agent?... or put it to other use?
