Former Bears S Danieal Manning has signed a four-year, $20 million deal with the Texans that includes $9 million guaranteed.

It was first reported by the Houston Chronicle and confirmed by other media sources later.

Manning, 28, made 72 tackles and one interception in 16 starts last season. It was the first 16-start season of his career for Manning in his five years as a pro.

Manning also is an excellent kick returner, averaging 24.7 yards per return on 33 attempts last season and 26.8 yards per return over his career.

The way we see it

He likely will start at strong safety for Wade Phillips' defense. The Texans' pass defense was statistically one of the worst in recent years last season, but the additions of Manning and blue-chip free-agent CB Johnathan Joseph help upgrade the personnel. Manning could be in the mix at kick returner, too, with Steve Slaton and Jacoby Jones.
