Question CB Ricky Manning, Jr. released by CHI today

Manning had asked for a trade or his release, but his contract made a trade unlikely.

He hasn't done really anything since he went from CAR to CHI starting only 11 games in two seasons, but he's not injured, he's 27, and he makes plays.

Any radio chatter about us going after him. ( I live in South Carolina)

Not sure if he is any different or better than Fletcher/Faggins. That said, I have seen worse ideas on this board.

He would not be more than a nickel......I think we have enough of them.

Besides, remember:


Quote:
On April 23, 2006 Ricky Manning, Jr. attacked a man, Soroush Sabzi 5, in a Denny’s restaurant after teasing him for working on a laptop computer.6 He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly fighting a man and eventually pled no contest to felony assault. Manning faced up to four years in prison because of a previous assault charge in 2002, for which he received probation.

According to the police report, Manning and former UCLA teammates, Tyler Ebell and Maurice Jones-Drew bullied a student sitting at another table. Manning confronted the student with “Are you a ******?”, “You f—-ing Jew,” and then called him “an ugly f—-ing Jew” and a “******.” The student asked to be left alone and the football players beat him unconscious. 7

Two days before the incident the Bears had signed Manning to an offer sheet. In light of the assault charges, the Panthers declined to match Chicago’s offer and so Manning signed a $21 million deal with the Bears two days later. In September 2006, Manning pled no contest to felony assault in exchange for another probation deal. Later, Manning proclaimed his innocence. He acknowledged having words with the victim then pushing him in the head—but after that, according to him, his former UCLA teammates did the damage. “Yeah, I did it” explained Manning (AP report). “If I don’t plea to this I have to go through trial. We’re in season now. Then I’d have to put it in the hands of a jury. There are tons of things that can happen with a jury… I just can’t risk that.”

Manning’s previous 2002 assault charge resulted from a fight between Manning and bodybuilders Brian Herbert and Seth Spiker outside a Westwood bar. Originally charged with two counts of felony assault, Manning pled innocent to one count after the other was dropped. 8

The NFL suspended him for one game for this incident

Hey now!!! IHOP's chicken fried steak is a hell of a lot better than Denny's. Plus, IHOP had the stuffed french toast.

You wanna fight over it?

Can we have one thread for all the players who are released that we might possibly be interested in? Because if we have a thread per player released, it could get messy quick.

Default Ricky Manning, Jr.

I see where Chicago released defensive back Ricky Manning, Jr. As our secondary is not the greatest , is there any talk of bringing him in? Thanks.
