The decision on whether to place Robinson on IR or PUP will come just prior to the season. The Texans should know a lot more about Dunta's progress in rehab by then.

Walter was ahead of Davis when AJ returned from injury. Don't know why that would change. The Texans really like Walter as a blocker from the WR spot.

Not a chance a deal gets done til he has made it back on the field. The Texans can't gamble that kind of money and Dunta won't want to take a lowball. Dunta isn't going to command that kind of money anyway.

Based on numbers alone, expect to see at least 2 and possibly 3 new linebacker names on that roster before OTAs. One will probably be a draft choice, maybe not until the 4th round but there will be one LB taken. The Texans are a Demeco injury away from something I don't want to see.

OL, CB, RB, LB top 4 picks, not necessarily in that order.

uhh, is it just me or are the FS/SS positions switched?..

It doesn't really make that much of a difference because Smith wants the two safety spots to be almost interchangeable instead of a classic FS/SS setup.

You've got Curome Cox under both CB and Safety. I thought he was just a safety.

And is Frye a Guard or a Tackle?

Just wanted to note we have 71 players under contract. With the TC roster limit set at 80 this year, after our draft picks, we'll have only 4 spots to sign UDFA's or street free agents.

aj.
04-11-2008, 07:10 PM
I think I read that the owners are going to re-visit the 80 man roster limit at the May meeting. No NFLE exemptions this year. CBA politics swirling. Hard to read whether there's going to be support to expand this number or just go with 80 and save a few bucks - because the league is so far in debt <rolls eyes thingy>

I believe I saw 86 as a number here for the rosters.

I'm no economics major but this all really doesn't make much sense to me to be honest with you. I just want my game ticket to pay for 53 (however much is supposed to be on our roster). Paying these other guys to practice seems silly to me. Real silly. Sure, I get the practice squad thing but to sign a player to a million dollar contract only to cut him to get the team under the roster seems freakishly and outlandish. All that really is doing is getting money out to the lawyers and arbritators just to draft up some contract that'll be out the door.

Expand the practice squad is the answer to me. Not expanding the overall roster only to be forced to cut it down as the season approaches. 53 man roster at all times and a 35 (or whatever) man practice squad. Seems simple but I'm sure you can debunk that and give me a nice explaination as to why things are the way things are.

Anyone is welcome to jump in if you've got insight. I have none. I'm just talking out of my arse and was puzzled as to why the owners would want to expand rosters because that only seems like it'd cost ticketholders more money. I'm NOT a season ticket holder but I do go to every game that I can (which isn't much YET). Seems to me that season ticket holders would have a beef with this expansion thing.

IMO, the owners are just setting up a bargaining chip to use the next labor agreement. In terms of money, most of the guys beyond the 53 man limit are some version of street free agent who get a fairly small signing bonus and no guaranteed salary unless they make the final 53 man roster. Practice squad players "only" make somewhere around 85,000 versus a minimium of around 275,000. During training camp the guys get around $1,000 per week which, considering pre-season games are pretty much forced on the season ticket holder, I am betting the owners are not losing much by having even up to 125 guys during training camp.

On your notion of having as large pratice squad, honestly considering teams now effectively will only cut around 20 players (53 rostered and 8 practice squad, not counting the guys who go on IR), and there is no version of minor league professional football having a bunch of guys who make a relative samll amount makes a ton of sense to me.

Another article about roster limits:
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writers/don_banks/05/09/roster.size/?eref=sircrc

On another note:
(on if LB Zac Diles is getting the first crack to start at strong side linebacker) “Yes, he is. You know, there’s a lot of guys in there competing, with (Kevin) Bentley and Zac (Diles) and of course (Xavier) Adibi and (Chaun) Thompson, but Zac’s lining up with the first group right now. He needs the reps. We’ll see how he does.
Does this mean Adibi's going to be tried at SLB? I fully expected him to compete with Greenwood, as Wolf has him listed.

There is an article at HT.com about Ryans and Greenwood being pillars of the LBs and how the competition is for the third spot. Adibi is fighting with Diles, not with Greenwood.

IR
CB Dunta Robinson(IR) (putting him here because not sure when he will back and don't trust the reports we get from the Texans)


added the rookies and so far 2 udf
positions may be off (aka SS or FS)


If you're listing all the players, you should add Darnell Jenkins, Fred Weary and Chris Taylor to the offense, and Jesse Nading, Gabe Long and Marcus Richardson to the defense. PUP would probably be a better designation for Dunta if you want to account for his injury status.

There is an article at HT.com about Ryans and Greenwood being pillars of the LBs and how the competition is for the third spot. Adibi is fighting with Diles, not with Greenwood.

You may not see it until '09 but I see Adibi as Greenwood's replacement unit - considering physical makeup/skills, and where G'wood is in his contract and his age.

That's how I see it also, but like you said, not until 09.
