Danieal Manning rejected contract extension; gets restricted tender

Danieal Manning

The Bears tried to re-sign safety Danieal Manning before he became one of the team’s key free agents.

Michael C. Wright and Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com report Manning was offered $6 million over three seasons, including $2 million guaranteed during the 2010 season.

He rejected the proposal and will now be given an “original pick” restricted free agent tender by the team.   That tender may wind up meaning nothing after a new CBA is reached, but the Bears are just covering their bases.

Manning has finished five seasons, so it’s likely he’ll be an unrestricted free agent after a work stoppage.

    He’s a fast guy and a great returner. He can play safety, and he’s not too bad there either. $2M per year seems too low. I bet he gets 4 years and $17M on the open market easily.

    Great return man, big hitter. Liability in pass coverage. More valuable to a team that doesn’t have Devin Hester on the roster.
