The Bears added insurance at cornerback with the signing of Tim Jennings, but the future of another member of the defensive backfield remains unclear.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Danieal Manning is unlikely to attend the start of the offseason workout program on March 29 as he awaits a new contract.
Manning would earn $1.176 million for 2010 if he signs the one-year tender offer placed on him by the Bears.
The Bears would receive a third-round draft pick as compensation if any team signs Manning away with an offer sheet the Bears decline to match.

According to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Richie Incognito, who was voted by his peers as the NFL's dirtiest player last season, will visit the Miami Dolphins.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts could also be interested in the controversial offensive guard.
Incognito almost joined the Dolphins in December, but Miami lost out on their waiver claim to the Buffalo Bills, who were lower in the standings.
