    Greetings Bears fans.

    Rams fan here looking for some insight on Danieal Manning. I saw that he was cut by the Texans yesterday and was curious if he'd fit into our defense.

    It seems like the Texans miscast him as a SS. Wasn't he more of a FS/nickel CB hybrid when he played with the Bears?

    The Rams need a rangy FS to fit into Gregg Williams' defense to play next to T.J. McDonald who is going to play more of a in-the-box, thumper SS role. Is that a position that Manning could fill.

    Thanks for the input! Love the forum layout!

    Manning wasn't that great of a FS. He took bad angles to the ball. SS and KR was his fit. He wouldn't take a pay cut from the Texans but if Rams have the cash could get a few seasons out of him.

    He played all over the place here because, well, Lovie likes to ruin players by moving them every 6 months. He is best suited to SS and KR, just as Shorty said.
