According g to 610 radio manning is gone. Still have doubt this is a rebuilding year?
A quick google shows a lot of new stories coming out with this.
Sources including Schefter.
Bummer, I had high hopes for the Manning signing.
Any cap gurus out there know what this means towards the salary cap?
New head coach with a new coaching staff = rebuilding. It was settled for me a long time ago. But it's not a point worth arguing about unless you want to argue about Bob McNohair's ridiculous little speeches.
We pick up $4.5M
Saw this coming...
Manning is what 32 coming off two leg injuries in 3 years...
Good luck on his future endevours...
Wonder if he is on the phone with Lovie in Tampa right know...
Well don't forget the 06 Saints that completely turned over the roster and went deep into the playoffs.
Now they did have Brees leading but I don't think it will take that long to turn it around..
At least I hope not...
We'll be fine. Manning was a baller but he was hurt an awful lot. When your best guys are always injured you don't have any "best guys". We see that all the time with Cushing and Manning was no Cushing. He was an asset but he wasn't that kind of difference maker.
Makes sense to me that it's time to move on.
Nice chunk of change to add depth.
^^^^ This! Looks like we are trying to get younger as well as improve cap space
first time in texans history it seems we're really trying to address the safety position.. 2 new young guys at the position in less than a month and a 2nd round pick from last year will all be competing for time next year...
Apparently Manning was asked last week to take a pay cut, and he refused thus the Texans released him.
Not much more to say. Good luck. Good but not great player who had some injury issues. I would have liked to have kept him, but I can see why they wanted him to take a cut in pay. Clemons can do a decent job replacing him I think.
I've said all along this is a rebuild. Anyone that thinks otherwise is not living in reality.
I thought he agreed to a pay cut to stay on.....
Two new young players?
We definitely could use a trade back and get as many picks in top 3 rounds as possible.
Naw, Tania reported that wrong and retracted it. He had never agreed only asked.
Not a fan of leaving the safety position to a new acquisition and two young guys but eh, at least we clear some money.
The way I see it is anybody that gets cut was part of a 2-14 team
With a pay cut, yes. The the pay cut the Texans demanded..........obviously, no.
Chris clemons = 28 yo, 5 years in the league
kendrick lewis = 25 yo, 3-4 years in the league
Swearinger = 2nd year guy..
