National Football League(NEW YORK) — Even though he left the team via free agency this offseason, veteran safety Danieal Manning is back with Houston Texans.
The Texans had originally offered Manning a pay cut following last season, but he declined and instead opted for free agency. He signed a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Manning wound up getting cut by the Bengals, and decided to reunite with his old team.
“Health-wise he’s perfect,” Manning’s agent, Russel Hicks said. “He may be in better shape than when he left. His leg was fine. He was cleared to play. He played all four [preseason games]. It just wasn’t good fit for him in [Cincinnati]. It was a numbers game. It happens like that. The right fit for you is the right fit for you.”
The 32-year-old Manning is an eight-year NFL veteran who can still contribute to an NFL team. He battled injuries last season and appeared in just six games, recording 24 tackles.

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) – Veteran running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been cut by the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced Friday.
The move was expected, as Green-Ellis did not dress for the Bengals’ last two preseason games. Giovani Bernard will be the team’s starting running back, with rookie Jeremy Hill serving as the primary backup. Cincinnati selected Hill in the second-round of this year’s NFL draft.
“It’s very difficult to release such a fine player and person as BenJarvus,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “He has been an exceptional player and teammate, as well as mentor to our younger players. He has also been a standout person in the community. We thank Bennie for all he has done and wish him the best of luck in the future.”
Green-Ellis was entering the final year of his three-year contract and was scheduled to make $2.3 million this season. In his two seasons in Cincinnati, Green-Ellis rushed for more than 1,700 yards. He averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry last season and had just four catches.

Elsa/Getty Images(MONTREAL) — It wasn’t in the NFL and it wasn’t with his usual flash and flare, but Chad Johnson was back in professional football on Friday. The former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver made his debut for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) in the final preseason game for the squad.
An 11-year veteran of the NFL, Johnson amassed over 11,000 receiving yards with both the Bengals and the New England Patriots. In his first real game action since 2011, Johnson caught one pass for 13 yards. The Alouettes fell to the Ottawa REDBLACKS, 26-10, in their final tune-up before the regular season begins.
“It felt good. Nervous, butterflies, it was cool,” said Johnson on his return to professional football. “I have a lot of work to do but it felt good.”
The outspoken wide out played 10 years for the Bengals, earning six Pro Bowl selections before signing with the Patriots in 2011, helping the team reach the Super Bowl. In 2012 he signed with the Miami Dolphins but was released following an arrest for domestic battery to which he pleaded no contest.
Montreal opens up the 2014 CFL regular season on June 28 when they take on Calgary.
