Indy cut Manning, but that was because he was due a $28MM roster bonus and they didn't want to pay it.
He's only on the hook for $1M guaranteed but his 2013 contract is $7.5M plus that $1M roster bonus that is guaranteed. That's a lot to pay for a backup QB, and exactly the reason they would cut him.
