Source: Texans cut starting safety Manning

The Houston Texans released starting safety Danieal Manning on Monday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Last week, the Texans asked Manning to restructure his contract, a move that would reduce his salary and cap numbers and allow him to stay with the team.
Manning’s agent told KRIV-TV last week that the safety was willing to take a pay cut but not to the level at which the Texans were requesting.
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, 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 Rams on Oct. 13. He is expected to be ready for the 2014 season. Texans reporter Tania Ganguli contributed to this report.
