Source: Texans ask Manning to reduce pay

Houston — Texans starting safety Danieal Manning has been asked to restructure his contract, a move that would reduce his salary and salary cap number to allow him to stay with the team, a source said.
Manning, who turns 32 in August, was scheduled to make a base salary of $4.5 million this season with a cap number of $6 million in the final year of his contract. He initially signed with the Texans before the 2011 season with a four-year deal worth $5 million a year with a total guarantee of $9 million.
Last season, Manning started six games before he suffered a severe knee injury after hyperextending it during the Texans 38-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Oct. 13. Manning expects and is expected to be ready for the 2014 season.Previously covered Texans for Houston Chronicle and Jaguars for Florida Times-Union
