The safety will visit the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, according to a source informed of the player's plans. The Houston Chronicle first reported the news, and Manning later told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he also will meet with the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday.

Manning was cut by the Houston Texans on Monday.

The writing was on the wall for Manning in Houston, after the team signed safety Chris Clemons last week.

Manning will see a familiar face in Cincinnati. His former defensive backs coach with the Texans, Vance Joseph, holds the same job on the Bengals' coaching staff. The familiarity should provide a solid voice for Manning and a comfort level in knowing the secondary scheme.

In Cincinnati, Manning likely would compete for the third safety spot behind Reggie Nelson, George Iloka and the re-signed Taylor Mays.

Manning, 31, missed 10 games in 2013 with a fractured right fibula.
