per the NFLPA website.. (http://www.nflpa.com/Legal/ImportantDates.aspx)

August 29, Tuesday

No, it's 75! (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/6000900)

Till this year, after the 3rd preseason game, cut down was to 65 with a previous cutdown to 75. The 65 cutdown has been eliminated.

NFL.com News (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/6000900)
Aug. 29 -- Roster cutdown to maximum of 75 players.

Sept. 2 -- Roster cutdown to maximum of 53 players.

Sept. 3 -- Clubs may establish practice squad of eight players.

It's 75. But the NFL Europe exemptions also expire on Tuesday, whereas they expired on the final cutdown last season. I think the Texans will have to cut a dozen players, maybe more if they plan to make waiver claims.

I agree, I think simmons stays too. Its a coin flip between Luchey and Cook, Of course, I didn't watch the game so I don't know how they blocked.

I think they cut down to exactly 75, but the list they make will anticpate additional cuts to provide room for waiver pick ups.

Kubes has some tough decisions. Who do you think is gonna get waved?

I think the tough decisions are yet to come. The next cut will be the most difficult decision wise. We have a short week this week, which I believe is the main reason Kubes & co. are making the cuts today. It's going to be quick decision making for who thier going to pick up. One has to think they already might have an idea who's being cut and who they're picking up. It should be interesting the next few days. We have first dibs, so we should pick up some good ones. Even better ones the next cut.:whip:

Armstrong is a bit of a surprise if only because I thought he'd make it to the 2nd round of cuts. He's a good player, and I'm sure some team will take a chance on him. Walker isn't a surprise, but he'll definately be remembered by fans for his performance against the Patriots. I wish them both the best of luck elsewhere.

You had to see Armstrong coming. I still can't figure out how this guy never developed into a solid #3. I'll bet the Cowboys could use him.

Barrett Green goes from starter to unemployed in 3 weeks. He'll probably get picked up by someone.

Hape was probably a tough one for Kubiak.

Best of luck to Donovan Morgan. I guess there's only room for 1 New Orleans refugee on the roster.

Starling, we barely got a chance to know ya in 3 years.

And so long to one of the few remaining original Texans... Ramon Walker.

Yeah Wright was soooo awful he wasn't even useful as a nickle or dime back for the 2-14 Texans but started for the 7th passing D Jags last year and now is a nickle for 10th passing D Skins. He ain't great, much more of a yeoman but he isn't a complete hack either.
