Report: Bears' Manning gets tender offer for 2011

ESPN.com reports that Chicago Bears safety Danieal Manning was tendered last week an offer for $1.29 million for 2011. But Manning might want to sit tight and wait for a new collective bargaining agreement, which could make him an unrestricted free agent. He would likely get a bigger payday on the open market.
The Tribune reported last month that Manning balked at the Bears' offer of a three-year deal, an offer worth $6 million, with about $2 million guaranteed.
"It just wasn't an offer I thought I deserved," Manning told the Tribune in January. "But when they gave me the offer, I didn't want to worry about it. I just wanted to play the season out and hopefully win the Super Bowl. That was my focus."
