I don't think this will come as much of a surprise to anyone. He suppossedly didn't want to take as big of a pay cut as the Texans wanted him to, so he was released instead. I read that this saves us $4.5M, wonder where we'll spend it.

We might use one of our late round picks on a Safety so some additional depth now.

Yeah, when it was announced that he wasn't willing to take a pay cut, then we signed Clemons, I think the writing was on the wall. Clemons is younger, cheaper, and should offer more than Manning in the long run. The contract that Clemons signed is ridiculously cheap in my opinion. (2-years, 2.75M ~ $450k guaranteed)
