Manuel wasn't able to stay on the field last season, and when he did, the results were less than inspiring. There are reasons for optimism, though. He's got (most of) a season under his belt now, and enters the 2014 season with one of the more enviable receiving corps, headlined by Sammy Watkins, who's been inducing drool from scouts at training camp so far. Manuel's got a lot to prove, and deserves to be given the time to prove it. (Rick Stewart/Getty Photo)
