    #Texans save $4.5M against cap by cutting Danieal Manning. Meanwhile, #Cowboys sniffed around at safety. Manning played for Marinelli. Hmm.

    Danieal Manning just released. He's a Texas boy, played previously for Rod, would be a great mentor for Wilcox, cheap. What do you guys think?

    If Marinelli pushes for it then sure.

    I'm pretty frustrated with the constant stream of Pool/Allen types. They haven't come close to working out, so maybe we stay away. But if we're looking to go that route again, Manning would probably be the best of that type of guy we've brought in in the last few years.

    He might not be necessarily cheap. The Texans released him because he refused a pay cut.

    It's not like he's ancient so I'm down, doubt we're the best offer he gets though

    Good point. Guess we'll see. He had a career high in passes defensed (8) in 2012, which was his last full season. Played in only 6 games last year.

    That and I imagine because they'd already signed his replacement in Chris Clemons.

    As for whether to take a look in his direction. I've heard worse ideas. It's just a matter of health, since he's coming off a broken leg or something.

    He's healthy from what I understand. All they did with Clemons is bring in someone Brian Gaine remembers from Miami and pay him what they wanted Manning to go down to.

    Business is business. But Danieal Manning grew up a #Cowboys fan, is from near Dallas. Has always fantasized about playing for his team.

    Again, it's worth a look. It'd be nice to have another veteran voice in the backfield should Church go out for any significant time.

    Danieal Manning is exactly the type of player I can see the Cowboys being interested in. Productive under Maraneli before and an RKG

    Let's get this done.

    Not sure if this is such a good idea. He could be a progress stopper for Matt Johnson.

    Sign em up! The position has little talent and zero depth.
