    Ricky Manning Jr.

    It's an interesting thought just given the CB situation with the Pats.

    I'll be curious, if he does get released, which would make sense, to see what teams make a run at him and whether or not the pats are one of them.

    Chip on his shoulder, something to prove. More importantly, young (er!) 27 years old. Been in the league 5 years. Played in big games.

    He was a good player earlier just needs to get his head screwed on straight. Did have legal problems in 06.

    Depending what happens here, it might not be a bad fit - IMO.

    He was REAL good. In Carolina's 04 run, He's the one who picked off Donavan McNabb 3 times in the title game. I think he had one vs st. louis the week earlier too.

    Lost starting job in 05 but played in all 16 games.

    Daniel Manning basically subplanted him the last 2 years in chicago. Other than that, don't know what the hell happened.

    Fat and happy? Don't remember an injury.

    I remember two things about him. He was a terrific nickleback in playoff games a few years ago, making the Eagles look bad.

    He was also something of a thug, allegedly involved in the beating of a guy at a Denny's.
