Really? Cut your LS? Kiddin' right?

Just saw that Rosencopter ended up on IR with a bad back. Do these guys that go on IR get full pay for the year?


They still are paid their salary, though bonuses for specific games or scores are not available.

Found this draft profile: LINK (http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/historical/1232008)

At least in college he had a heck of a leg...........a 78 yd punt against Ohio State. Inside 20 also very impressive.

Here's his NFL stats: LINK (http://www.nfl.com/player/jeremykapinos/2507310/profile)

Also note that most of his stats come from open ice palace stadium teams......Green Bay, Jets and Steelers. Very likely being with an indoor team at Reliant could add a nice factor to his game.

The Texans picked up a pretty good place kicker from Pittsburgh back in 2002. He played well until his last year, when he was replaced by Neal Rackers.

Might be time to return to that well again for another kind of kicker.

Looking at the stat sheet, seems like he only played a full year with GB. Injury issues??

David Anderson anyone? Cut by da Broncs......... I'd sure rather rely on him for a sure-handed catch over JJ, especially in the middle of the field.

Listening to 610, everybody (including Greg Cook) don't have the roster to PS and PS to active roster waiver process backwards. :spit: The only thing bigger than Greg Cook's ego is the amount of football knowledge he seriously lacks.

I'm pretty sure the cutting of all punters is a precursor to us scoring every time we have the ball. Obviously after checking the MRIs of the rest of the offense the found no anti-awesomeness and realized that we are a juggernaut. Why punt when you can't be stopped?

Why punt when you can't be stopped?I'm actually a fan of going for it on 4th down in a lot of situations. Less than 3 yards and on their side of the 50, suck it up and go for it. Yeah, it gets a little dicier on your side of the field but what the hell? :splits:

When they tried Adibi with the 1's, we were weak up the middle. They pulled him out and put in Sharpton and the run defense stiffened.

I have a feeling Adibi was blowing gap assignments.

Just a guess, but I believe we're probably going to waive two more DB's, and possibly one of the LB's. Adding four players off the wire... of course one being a punter. So what else do we fill? I'd think another WR would seem logical. Where else do you see holes?

Im really surprised they kept Derek Newton over Wallace , Pemberton or Barbieri. Newton got beat bad on several occasions .... got Leinart blasted on one of those , another caused a fumble by Yates I believe.

Newton did get beat, but penberton was awful in that last game. There was one play where the de absolutely embarrassed him in lieu to a sack.

Newton and Carmichael will both end up on the practice squad in the next couple days, I believe. The Texans can hold them right now until they make the waiver wire pickups or free agent signings they're preparing to make. After that, Newton and Carmichael will be cut and then signed to practice squad. By not cutting them right now, it makes it less likely that teams will make plans to get these guys on their roster. Therefore, they are more likely to clear waivers. If you recall, the Texans had a rookie last year that they were excited about converting from TE to LT: Steve Maneri. The Texans cut him on cutdown day, planning to sign him to the practice squad, but the Pats signed him away. They're simply trying to prevent that from happening again.

So, the Texans will sign a punter and get to 53. Then, the Texans, at the very least, will be adding a veteran Guard and probably a veteran ILB. When that happens, some combination of Newton, Carmichael, and Braman will be cut. A day later, the Texans will try to sign each of those guys to the practice squad. I think the Texans will stick with 4 WRs but have Jeff Maehl and maybe one other WR on the practice squad.

I think it is possible the Texans add another DLman, but it is not definite. With Mario, the Texans have someone that can play DE if the DL suffers a few injuries. Also, J.J. Watt can probably play some nose tackle. Heck, Antonio Smith was lining up as a nose tackle during the Superbowl a few years ago. So, there is both depth and flexibility on the line.

I'm more concerned with ILB depth. Cushing and Ryans will only have one backup each, as things stand now. Also, none of the 5 OLBs can handle playing on the inside. Considering, of the four (Ryans, Cushing, Sharpton, Dobbins), only Dobbins is not recovering from off-season surgery, they better add some depth!

The Texans usually keep at least 9 offensive linemen. Right now, they only have 8. In addition, one is injured (Caldwell) and the other is a longterm project. It is a certainty the Texans will be signing a veteran free agent interior lineman between now and Monday.

It's called many things, however you want to categorize it, versatility maybe? but Joel Dreesen should be the go to guy here with emergence of Owen Daniels twin brother Garrett Graham, I see no reason to hold a roster spot for LS.

QFT. I think besides the obvious holes, we should be looking around at some others who were cut. According to NFLN, there might not be many signings until after Week 1 due to the new rules of the CBA and how contracts are handled... So this isnt something that might not happen as fast as most would like. However, I would hope that the FO is more concerned with grabbing quality players rather than whether or not his contract should be guaranteed.

Houston Texans Cutdown Analysis

By Paul Kuharsky

Click here (http://texans.studiotigaapps.net/1745.aspx) for a complete list of Houston Texans’ roster moves.

Surprise moves: After cutting rookie punter Brett Hartmann last week, the team cut veteran Brad Maynard (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/1252/brad-maynard). The Texans do not have a punter. One fan quickly joked that a high-powered offense doesn’t intend to punt. But the Texans clearly have their eye on someone and will be adding a punter in the next couple of days. They've left a roster spot open for him. Fifth-round safety Shiloh Keo (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/14122/shiloh-keo), a Wade Phillips favorite who was supposed to be a special teams demon, didn’t make it. Raw, undrafted outside linebacker Bryan Braman (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/14524/bryan-braman) did make it.

No-brainers: Deciding Steve Slaton (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/11323/steve-slaton) was one of their best 53 players and keeping four running backs seemed prudent to me. Deciding Trindon Holliday (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13386/trindon-holliday) wasn’t going to help as a return man or receiver makes sense too.

What’s next: The team has only Andre Johnson (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/4461/andre-johnson), Kevin Walter (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/4713/kevin-walter), Jacoby Jones (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/10517/jacoby-jones) and newcomer Bryant Johnson (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/4475/bryant-johnson) at receiver and could be looking for a fifth option, though their pass catching tight ends ease the concern. Houston is thin on the offensive line, too.


AFC, team-by-team "analysis" is HERE (http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/tag/_/name/afc-roster-analysis-2011). Not a bad spot to check which 'notables' are now available around the AFC.

Unlike some others, I agree with the underlined. We've had too much trouble with RB health this preseason not to keep four. Three of the four guys we kept at RB have various degrees of hammy issues and the fourth guy has suffered a concussion. We may end up bringing Ogbonnaya off the P/S a time or two before the year is done.

I'm good with the 4 WRs. Wouldn't surprise me if they just rolled like that.

Vickers being on the roster is a joke. He shouldn't have made the first cut. Cut Vickers and keep the Pauga FB CSU kid on the P/S for insurance. Vickers made zero impact this preaseason, even less than Barber who doesn't deserve his spot either. I wonder about 7 CBs AND 4 safeties, it wouldn't surprise me to see Barber cut and them start teaching one of the CBs the safety position. McMannis or Jackson fit the bill physically.

Thank you Jesus, Thank you Lord they cut Maynard. I'm singin praises over here! And what IF they went maximum a-hole and went for it on every 4th down? I bet they'd break records scoring points. I bet they get 10 yards in 4 tries almost everytime...........

Keo too, that guy sucked. Funny that Terrance Toliver ended up on IR too, we're gonna have a few guys to look at next year!

I'm pretty good with how the roster shaped up. Except for Vickers.

I always preferred the idea of keeping Slaton around. At some point during the season, someone somewhere is going to need a back and be willing to trade for him. AND he still provides good depth at a position where guys can and do go down.

Oh u mean like when the saints were blowing up the middle? When he played with the ones, he made plays and everyone was getting run on. Its easy to see when mitchell and cody are getting pushed backwards 5 yards. The only time the defense loked legit was against the pathetic 49ers. I'm not saying he would be a super difference make because he's smallish like the other lbs except dobbins. Bulman did squat, dobbins did squat, barber did squat. The flexibility of quinn and mario should've allowed them to keep 1 less db and 1 less lineman or lb who wasn't perorming to pick up a cut guy with more upside and production.
