Texans release Danieal Manning

After being reported last week as someone who would not be a cap casualty, the Houston Texans have released safety Danieal Manning. The move became expected after the Texans signed safety Chris Clemons from the Miami Dolphins. Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the release.

The move saved the Texans $4.5 million but there is speculation that Manning will not be out of a job for long, and could stay in Texas.

The Cowboys have been in the market for a safety as Rapoport states above, and Manning would be a nice veteran addition. He started the first six games for Houston last year before suffering a season-ending fractured fibula.

Meanwhile in addition to Clemson, the Texans also signed Kendrick Lewis to help bolster their safety position.
