    Manuel finally practiced Monday.
    Hopefully he will be giving the secondary a big lift and he and Collins will establish a special saftey tandem.

    I think they will. Nick Collins is my favorite player on the Packers and Manuel plays similarly. Hard hitters is the way to go. I think they'll be special.

    I really like the potential on our defense and they were very good last year. I think they were near the top in pass defense but that was partially because teams ran up the middle on us because no one stopped them.

    Manuel and Collins have lots of potential at the safety position and both are very physical, hard hitting safeties.

    Manuel will help a lot in the running game but struggles against the pass. I'm sure most will bash him because he won't get 5 INT's a year but if he improves the run defense, he's worth the signing.

    Collins on the other hand is more of a playmaker. He needs to step up this year and progress into a guy that can make an INT.

    I like the potential collins has, remember the cincinati game last year? He did an amazing job on chad johnson.
