    is this a difficult question for anyone? He was released by the bears today. He was huge in the Panthers run to the Super Bowl and a role player in the Bears run as well. Gregory works hard but he clearly has nothing on Manning cover ability and with the 4 and 5 receiver sets we face against the Pats, Colts and others why not?

    from Wiki

    On April 23, 2006 Ricky Manning, Jr. attacked a man, Soroush Sabzi [7], in a Denny's restaurant after teasing him for working on a laptop computer.[8] He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly fighting a man and eventually pled no contest to felony assault. Manning faced up to four years in prison because of a previous assault charge in 2002, for which he received probation.

    According to the police report, Manning and former UCLA teammates, Tyler Ebell and Maurice Jones-Drew bullied a student sitting at another table. Manning confronted the student with "Are you a ******?", "You f---ing ***," and then called him "an ugly f---ing ***" and a "******." The student asked to be left alone and the football players beat him unconscious. [9]

    Two days before the incident the Bears had signed Manning to an offer sheet. In light of the assault charges, the Panthers declined to match Chicago's offer and so Manning signed a $21 million deal with the Bears two days later. In September 2006, Manning pled no contest to felony assault in exchange for another probation deal. Later, Manning proclaimed his innocence. He acknowledged having words with the victim then pushing him in the head—but after that, according to him, his former UCLA teammates did the damage. "Yeah, I did it" explained Manning (AP report). "If I don't plea to this I have to go through trial. We're in season now. Then I'd have to put it in the hands of a jury. There are tons of things that can happen with a jury... I just can't risk that."

    Manning's previous 2002 assault charge resulted from a fight between Manning and bodybuilders Brian Herbert and Seth Spiker outside a Westwood bar. Originally charged with two counts of felony assault, Manning pled innocent to one count after the other was dropped.


    No thank you

    Why not bring him in for a look?

    He hasn't beat the living **** out of anyone in almost 2 years.

    He sounds like a punk! He would probably be in prison if he wasn't a football player.

    Gregory is from my hometown of Staten Island, NY(AKA Shaolin for all u Wu Tang fans) so lay off him LOL.
    I don't know nhim personally, but lets give him a chance. The little playing time he's had he's done a pretty good job. They must see something good in him for AJ to keep him around.

    Go Steve:icon_toast:

    We don't need anyone named "Manning" on our team, no matter what position they play......

    Besides, Gregory has been with us for a few seasons and has been in camp the whole time, so he already knows our defense and there is no learning curve with him, nor are there any felonious assaults....:tdown:

    AJ Smith saw fit to resign Gregory so I will put my faith in him that he knows better than all the "experts" here on the board.

    Gregory has been here, knows the system, and has excelled on special teams.

    In AJ we trust.

    GO CHARGERS!:bolt:

    Manning's track record says it all. AJ and Norv do not want thugs on the team and neither do I. Wonder how he'd fare in prison?

    Steve Gregory and Cletis Gordon are examples of guys who are FOOTBALL PLAYERS, even if they arrived in the pros without a lot of experience at ONE main position.

    I firmly believe that if Gordon-- at his present level of development-- had been available in the most recent draft, he'd have been taken in the 3rd round.

    I absolutely LOVE A.J. Smith's eye for raw talent. :yes:
