There are a number of contracts to look at.
resigning some free agents
Restructuring/releasing some expensive ones.

The latter helps with the former...

resigning FAs
DRC
Moreno
Decker (has a rapport with Manning and should stay around)
Beadles
Ayres
Phillips

restructure or release
Dreesson (emergence of J.Thomas at TE makes Joel expendable)
Kuper (little value in keeping him due to injuries)
Bailey (paid a lot for little return. DRC might be his replacement. Could return on a restructure deal)

Also consider that there will be some FA pick ups as well as draft picks to come in.

big deciding factor is Manning. No reason for him to call it a career given what it took to return from injury. He would have gone then. I think he will play as long as he can be effective.
