The Houston Texans released safety Danieal Manning on Monday, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Manning was slated to earn $4.5 million this season and was previously asked to take a pay cut. In addition, the Texans signed safety Chris Clemons, indicating Houston was likely to move in another direction.

Manning spent the previous three seasons with the Texans and recorded 24 total tackles and one sack in just six games played due to injury.
