What if a great body hits us and redirects us to spin in the opposite direction? It appears this happened to Venus at some point. However, my money is on your prediction.

If that happens, the sun rising and setting will be low on the priority list. If it isn't already.

Not very surprised by this move. Wade had almost zero mobility, add to that an injury, and he isn't the poster child for the zone blocking scheme.

Today the Texans announced they have waived 3 players including 6 foot 8, 314 pound lineman Todd Wade.

Fred Brock and Terry Pierce were also cut today.

Wade will get the league minimum somewhere. Or he could just quit. It's not like he's going to run out of money... ever... thanks to Casserly and Capers.

Pierce was just a charity case anyway and is probably done for good. Kubiak was nice enough to get him a few more paychecks.

Thank goodness!

Kubiak is cleaning house, bringing in players who want to play, and making us a contender.

PLAYOFFS BABY!

I thought these guys didn't get paid in the offseason, basically paid weekly through the regular season or something like that. Basically, you had to make the official roster to get paid your contract amount, which is paid of over the course of the regular season.

Since Pierce was never on the roster during the regular season (played with Denver in 2004 and was waived in training camp from Denver in 2005), how could he have gotten a paycheck from the Texans?

If anyone knows how this stuff works, I would like to hear it.

There could be a workout bonus or something built into his contract.

They get some sort of money. The undrafted free agent type receive a weekly paycheck that would equate to $60K or so over a year????? It might be a little more. Roster players get paid for camp and stuff to, at some very reduced rate. I don't know the exact numbers.

Another brilliant move by Casserly bites the dust. I wonder how much dead money we will have to absorb.

Well he was scheduled to make 5.1 mil this season and 6.1 mil next season, with 3.2 total listed as bonus pay. Not sure exactly how it all works out though.

I don't have any animosity towards the guy and I'm sure that if his knee heals up that he'll find a home somewhere. He didn't suck for the first four years of his career in Miami. Just the year and half he played for Joe Pendry. I look at his departure as a matter of him simply not being the type of lineman we need for our new offense.

Good luck to Todd Wade in the future (except for when the Texans are lining up against him).

Is there a possibility of us keeping wade if he would like to reconstructure his contract, so as not to hurt the cap room...as much.

http://www.houstonprofootball.com/

It says over the next two years we will absorb $6.67 million in dead cap from cutting him, they have the option of pushing up to $5 million against the cap next year, although they will likely take most or all of that this year since they have some cap room, which sounds like a good plan so they can go ahead and get it over with and have more cap room next year for any potential free agent acquisitions, and so we don't keep delaying cap hits like the Titans.

eheh I just looked at that too.

6,666,667 dead money

crap. Good thing he got that extra buck or I would have to head down to the Sacred Bleeding Heart and Travelling Tabernacle to donate one myself.

Everybody's high on consolation
Everybody's trying to tell me what's right for me
My GM tried to bore me with a sermon
but it's plain to see that they can't comfort me
Sorry Charlie for the imposition
I think I've got it, got the strength to carry on
I need a drink and a quick decision
Now it's up to me, ooh what will be

Chorus:
Wade's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
better learn how to face it
Wade's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
pay the dead cap to replace him
Wade's Gone - what went wrong

Up in the morning look in the mirror
I'm worn as his jock hanging in the stand
my face ain't looking any younger
now I can see sacks have taken there toll on me

Wade's Gone
better learn how to face it
Wade's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
pay the dead cap to replace him
Wade's Gone - what went wrong

Think I'll spend eternity in the city
let Spencer and Winston choke my thoughts away
and zone blocking helps dissolve the memories
but they can never be what he was to me

Wade's Gone
better learn how to face it
Wade's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
pay the dead cap to replace him
Wade's Gone - what went wrong

By no means was I attempting to portray our Californian QB in that light. Not that there is anything wrong with that. :)

Wade gone. Jeez...I've been away too long. I figured the Texans would have ridden the contract out. I gotta get back in the loop. I've been so consumed with baseball to pass the time. Come July 18th though, I'll be getting my football feet back under me. NCAA Football, 2007. Little known kid out of Any Town, USA...gonna put college football on it's ***. Oh well, Wade gone. I wonder if this means Winston or the other guy we drafted is gonna fill in?

"The departure of Wade all but assures that the Texans will start an offensive line unit in 2006 that will have new players at all five positions. Houston signed former Green Bay Packers starting center Mike Flanagan to anchor the unit, switched the positions of two other starters and chose two tackles in the third round of the draft. The likely replacement for Wade is 11-year veteran Zach Wiegert, who recently signed a contract extension and whose resume includes 128 starts split between guard and tackle."
"It will be the task of former Green Bay head coach Mike Sherman, who was hired as assistant head coach by Gary Kubiak, to cobble together a workable unit from the diverse components."
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2520094
************************************************** **
A fresh start with a top FA center and 2 highly rated first day tackle draft picks to include in your new OL at the appropriate time and former Packers HC Mike Sherman at the controls to mold and develope the unit, yea I'm liking this scenario more and more all the time.
Anyway, here's Pasquarelli's take on the news.

I hope Pitts stays at LG. IMO, he could be a very long term answer there. Let LT be between Wand and Spencer. From what I read during OTA's, Wand seems to be doing pretty good. Wand Pitts Flanagan McKinney Wiegert doesn't look bad on paper...er...puter screen

From what I saw and much of what I've heard Wand hasn't looked especially good, I doubt it if he is starting by the start of the regular season, if he even lasts that long.

Might as well, if this is a rebuilding year, why not just absorb all cap hits so that we can have some spending money once we are contenders?
