Ricky Manning Jr. is a Bear
PANTHERS WON'T MATCH MANNING OFFER
The Carolina Panthers will not match the offer sheet signed on Friday by cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. with the Bears. This means that the terms Manning signed on Friday become a binding contract, and he is a member of the Bears.
The Panthers receive the Bears' third-round selection in the 2006 draft as compensation.
Manning was arrested over the weekend in Los Angeles for alleged assault with a deadly weapon. (Scroll down for more.) As we explained, the pending charges do not permit the Bears to back out of the offer.
If there is nothing to this waepons charge it is a great pickup. Lovie Smith is an excellent coach. Congrats to him and his building of a deep offense. If that team can ever get a QB to throw 250 yards a game, they will go all the way. I don't think Brian Griese is the answer, but it he plays without making mistakes they will go far.
