According to ESPN's Tania Ganguli, Houston Texans starting safety Danieal Manning has been asked to restrucutre his contract to stay with the team. It appears that Manning will be asked to take a pay cut instead of becoming a cap casualty for the upcoming season.
Manning was scheduled to have a cap hit of $6 million dollars in his final deal of his contract.
He was signed by the Texans in 2011 as a free agent to a 4 year $20 million dollar contract after playing 5 seasons with the Chicago Bears.
He was drafted out of Abilene Christian by the Bears in the 2nd round (42 overall) in the 2006 NFL draft.
Since joining the Texans Manning has appeared in 35 games with 132 total tackles and 4 interceptions. He missed majority of the 2013 season with a knee injury early in the season.
