Date:

Free agent CB Sherrick McManis will visit the Patriots.

It's been a busy day for the Pats, who are also hosting James Starks, Rod Streater, Frank Kearse, Chris Hogan, Benny Cunningham and Clay Harbor on free agent visits. McManis logged a career-high 29 tackles last year but was horrendous in pass coverage. His saving grace is that he's a solid contributor on special teams. The 28-year-old is also drawing interest from Jacksonville.

Bears coach John Fox said CB Sherrick McManis "caught my eye" during OTAs.

A standout special team player, McManis' 46 defensive snaps last season were a career high. It is unlikely he suddenly becomes a big contributor on defense, but the Bears have serious questions at corner outside of Kyle Fuller. McManis could push Tim Jennings or Alan Ball for playing time in camp.

Bears re-signed CB Sherrick McManis to a one-year contract.

McManis, 27, will return as a core special teamer. He was limited to 46 defensive snaps last year, and projects for similar usage under new coach John Fox.

Bears re-signed CB Sherrick McManis to a one-year contract.

McManis played just 12 snaps on defense last season, but brings value as a core special teamer. That skill has allowed him to appear in 50 NFL games over the last four seasons.

Bears acquired CB Sherrick McManis from the Texans in exchange for FB Tyler Clutts.

McManis, a local product out of Northwestern, will be depth in the secondary for Chicago. He brings 23 games of NFL experience to the table.

Texans rookie CB Sherrick McManis will miss the season finale with a hamstring injury.

A fifth-round pick from Northwestern, McManis finishes his first year with 13 tackles and an interception despite playing sparingly on defense. He was highly productive in kickoff coverage. The Texans' cornerback jobs should be up for grabs in 2011, so McManis figures to have a shot at a big role.

Texans agreed to terms with fifth-round CB Sherrick McManis on a four-year, $1.982 million contract.

After losing top corner Dunta Robinson in free agency, the Texans used their first-round pick on CB Kareem Jackson and then added more depth with McManis. McManis will compete for snaps as a nickel/dime back.

Texans selected Northwestern CB Sherrick McManis with the No. 144 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

McManis was a three-year starter at cornerback in the Big-10, earning All-Conference honors as a senior. Though he returned kicks in college, his top-end speed is lacking. The Texans will try to develop him as a nickel/dime back.
