The Houston Texans continue to free up more salary cap space, as the team has decided to cut Safety Danieal Manning, according to Pro Football Talk.com.
Manning had been asked to take a pay cut, but as it turns out, Manning didn’t seem willing to do so, resulting in his release from the team.
Manning was due to make $4.5 million this season.
He played three seasons with the Texans, racking up 124 tackles, two sacks, three forced fumbles, four interceptions and 15 passes defended.
The Texans will now have to look for Manning’s replacement, and doing so through the draft will likely be the place to do that.
