RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Danieal Manning.

2014

A knee injury limited Manning to 24 tackles (21 solo) in six games for Houston last season. He will turn 32 years old this season, but posted 77 stops, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions while playing all 16 games in 2012.

2013

Manning enters his third year in the Texans' organization and is expected to start at free safety. He gets a new partner on the back end after Houston signed Ed Reed. Manning may also be used as a kick returner. He was a top returner while with the Bears and made an impact there in last season's playoff loss to New England.

2012

Manning will start at free safety for the Texans this season and should post average tackling numbers for a starting safety, to go along with a couple of interceptions.

2011

The Texans addressed glaring needs in the secondary when they signed both Manning and Jonathan Joseph, in moves they hope will turn around one of the worst pass defenses in the league. Manning isn't a big IDP candidate, though he did average 80 tackles over the last two seasons with the Bears. He also returned kickoffs in Chicago and was named by coach Gary Kubiak as the lead kickoff returner to start the season.

2010

Manning started ten games in the Bears secondary in 2009, recording 92 tackles (second on the team behind Lance Briggs), an interception, and two forced fumbles. The addition of safeties Major Wright and Chris Harris this offseason will likely cut into Manning's playing time, but he is a versatile athlete who can play basically anywhere in the secondary and should continue to see a decent amount of action, even if it's not in a starting role. Manning has also returned kickoffs for the Bears the last two years, and should continue in that role this season.

2009

Manning bounced around the secondary last year, but made his biggest impact as a kick returner, where he led the league in return average. For those of you who use defense and special teams, Manning is a big reason why the Bears are toward the top. He could start as a safety and will see plenty of time in the secondary, but he's not much of an IDP option.

2008

Manning will serve as a type of utility defensive back, filling in for anyone when hurt and being featured in nickel and dime packages.

2007

Manning's 2006 rookie season was very productive, as the second-rounder had two interceptions to go along with his 67 tackles. And not only did the Abilene Christian product play in all 16 games, he also started at free safety in 14 of them. Manning will compete for the starting FS spot again this year, and he looks to be the clear frontrunner right now.

2006

Manning, a second-round pick out of Abilene Christian, is expected to challenge Chris Harris for the starting free safety job in his rookie year. Manning, a Division II All-America defensive back in his senior year, should also contribute to the Bears on special teams.
