Adam Stites tweeted on twitter how amazing it was the polar opposite reactions on twitter to the releases of defensive end Derrick Harvey and offensive guard Vince Manuwai. One was considered a joke, the other was almost mourned with admiration and respect. Of course, that's going to happen when one guy plays his tail off at a high level while the other seems to just go through the motions.

Gene Frenette tweeted that Manuwai said today he had a torn ligament in his foot, which makes it easy to see why he showed up out of shape. I don't know for sure how the injury occured or the timetable for it, but cutting Manuwai saved the Jaguars $3.5 million according to Frenette. Tania Ganguli was asked on twitter itf it was possible that Manuwai could re-sign with the Jaguars at a lower salary, which Ganguli seemed to think was very possible.

In all honesty, that'd be a very good move by the Jaguars. If they can bring back Manuwai at a lower salary, even if he doesn't start he'd offer fantastic depth on the interior line. I wouldn't be shocked at all to see that happen.
