Back when the news was that Manning was taking a pay cut, I was surprised. Why would he take a pay cut so we could sign another safety?

Now that it's "Texans ASK Manning to take a pay cut", I'm thinking Manning is probably gone.

Texans likely would have cut him if he had not taken a pay cut...

I don't know if it's done or not yet, so I think it's still possible.

I would've rather kept OD and let Graham and DMan go.

But I guess the Texans are going much younger.

It's strange both JJo and Manning had very good seasons their first year here, then dropped off a cliff afterwards. Injuries or whatev, they aren't worth what we're paying them, especially JJo
That was a recurring theme with previous coaching regime

Daniels couldn't stay healthy and when a player who can't stay healthy carries the price tag he did he is usually the first to go.. I would've taken Graham over him as well. Younger tends to = healthier.

Was going to disagree.

But I can't.

I liked Owen Daniels, but the above is 100% true.

Wasn't Miami essentially playing Clemons as a STRONG safety as opposed to a FREE safety???

I'm not sure. They locked up Reshad Jones to a four-year deal last year and he's listed at SS on every depth chart I've seen.

I'd have to watch their games, but PFF shows him lining up as FS with Jones at SS for 2013. Jones is better vs. run, Clemons tops vs. pass so that makes more sense to me. But it gets blurry these days. I wonder if he becomes the slot CB with his size?
