Do you think the Chicago Bears will trade Ricky Manning Jr?
Yes, it sure seems like he is the odd man out.
Ricky Manning Jr. signed with the Chicago Bears in 2006, he set a career high, and he tied for the team lead and tied for 10th in the NFL with five INTs
In the postseason he had a big INT against the Seahawks in the NFC Divisional Playoff.
Became first Bears defensive back since Jerry Azumah (12/30/01) to record 2 sacks in one game (12/17/06 vs. TB Bucs).
Last season, Ricky Manning Jr. played in every regular season game, but failed to record an interception. He was the starting nickel back for the whole season.
The Chicago Bears are looking to use former first round pick Danieal Manning at nickelback because of the emergence of Brandon McGowan and Mike Brown coming back.
Besides the obvious starters Charles Tillman and Nathan Vasher, the Bears have two second year pros in Corey Graham and Trumaine McBride. Don’t forget this years fifth round pick Zackary Bowman.
If they do move Ricky Manning Jr, it might work out like Chris Harris in last years training camp.
Chris Harris started 15 games with the Panthers last season, recorded one INT and eight forced fumbles.
All the Chicago Bears got in that trade was a fifth round pick.
I still am upset at that trade.
So, if they move Ricky Manning Jr. it could turn out the same as Chris Harris’s last year in training camp.
It never hurts to have to many bodies and we all the know the Chicago Bears get alot of injuries.
It looks Ricky Manning Jr. who is signed through 2010, might get sent packing sooner than later.
