    He couldn't even play well enough to secure a spot as a back-up. What bothers me is the part that is underlined. :-?

    If he can't even make the Packers, why would anybody want him?

    He might be of more use to a team running a scheme different than the Packers do. Who knows? Maybe there's a situation out there that Marquand Manuel will downright thrive in. Sure as hell ain't this one.

    Collins did ok with not much experience

    lets not give up talent for experience. we did that with roman and manuel.

    lets get some talented folks out there, no matter the age.

    I'd take a 7th rounder for him, but I'm not banking on anyone wanting him.

    We'll probably just end up cutting him and eating his signing bonus on next year's salary cap like we did with Fergy.

    Nobody will want to keep Manuel's contract, so he will have to be cut. It's not a huge contract, but it's more than he's worth. At least he's done in Green Bay now, by the looks of it.

    At the tail end of that article, there was one bit that I thought was interesting:

    Strange feeling: Bigby went to the same high school as Manuel (Miami Senior High) and the two are friends, so it has not been a normal battle for a starting spot between the two.

    "Sometimes it feels like a business, but when it comes down to it at night, before I go to bed, it is weird," said Bigby, 25. "I'm against somebody that's so close to me. We came from the same background. Our struggles are somewhat the same."

    No one is going to want him. He's not an NFL player. He has proven that already, over and over again. I'm just glad I won't have to watch him give up big play after big play anymore.

    Isn't LeRoy Butler still there in some capacity? With him around I think that's experience enough to coach those guys.

    I could see us trading for a player that another team was going to cut anyways, ala the Mike Boulware - Jason Babin trade. This way. the front office saves a little face.

    Definitely the former.

    But the thing is zero, the last 4 games or so of the previous season, Manuel was starting for a D that played solid. He showed he could limit his mistakes, and then he has the experience which others are clearly lacking.

    Manuel hasn't stood out for anything really terrible this pre-season, and I thought those three things (playing not-so-bad this preseason, playing not-so-bad latter part of last year, and having the most experience) would have gotten him a roster spot as a back-up, at least.

    Hopefully the Packers are setting a higher standard than 'not-so-bad' and simply choosing someone because of experience.

    The haters always say things like this when Ted is trying to get something for nothing, but when someone gets cut the first thing they say is "why not try to trade him first".

    Didn't Dendy and Manuel give up a long TD against the Bears on New Years Eve?

    He's not a good player. Below average. I'll take talent over experience because eventually the "talent" will have both. Where as Manuel will not. He's an ok backup in my opinion.

    Your right he hasn't had a bad camp but neither has Peprah whom had a pass deflection against Tennessee and a nice INT against Seattle. Culver has looked ok as well. Manuel has done nothing to prove he is a better player than either one of those two and both of them have much better upside and we already know Manuel is prone to mistakes.

    In the Family Night Scrimmage, he committed a pass interference.

    I'm not saying anything. I'll say he's trying to trade him...not that it matters to you because...
