I'm hearing from a few sources that we are signing Terence Newman as a safety. Has anyone else heard this yet and if so, what thoughts do you have?

I think he is past his prime, but still an OK guy to have in our secondary. We still need to firm that area of our D up I.M.O.

He got embarassed last night and basically any time I tuned into a Cowboys game.

Hearing from who? Our season isn't over and Newman hasn't even been released yet. Not sure that I want any part of Newman to begin with. He's just bad. He wouldn't be an upgrade at either cornerback or safety.

Newman was embarrassed yesterday. And I'm saying this politely.

If this was 5 years ago, I'd be ecstatic, but he's past his prime now. Where did you hear the rumors? I can't imagine signing Newman right before the playoffs, seeing that he doesn't know our playbook at all.

Are players allowed to sign with new teams now?

And he left the game with a shoulder injury.

Methinks "sources" still celebrating NYE?

If he got released and went threw the waiver system and then became a FA, then and only then he could sign.

Ridiculous thread time is normally this week but we're in the playoffs this year.

Please save this nonsense until after we are eliminated or win the SB.

I think we should sign Deion Sanders and Rod Woodson.

I sort of doubted it myself, but a guy who is a sports DJ here in Austin said he heard it and I saw it on the other Texans Forum board. Neither of which are concrete sources. That is why I asked here.

Who would he be replacing?? And I thought contracts weren't concluded until late January/mid-February. But I'm in no way sure about that.

IF this has any truth to it, and I'm in no way convinced it does, he'd probably be put on special teams.

Then again, Wade coached him in Dallas, sooooo.....

No need to be a smart alec Papal. It was a RUMOR I'd heard and was hoping for some TRUTH were I feel I can find it. That is why it was asked as a question and not stated as a fact. Lighten the hell up man!

You were the one WHO STARTED A THREAD ON IT, Texanator. The notion that we could sign someone off another team THIS season is so ridiculous, its not even funny, so if you don't like the reaction, it's your fault for bringing it up.

C'mon Texanator, you're better than this. If you're going to start a ridiculous thread like this, you could have at least gone with someone better than Newman...

Well I apologize for posting this then. I didn't think there could be that much truth to it so I came here to ask. Again, my apologies for asking a dumb question, but I figured a sports DJ might know a little more then the average Joe.

It's ok. But we've had dozens of these types of threads in the past on this board so this one was going to be met with lots of skepticism at best.

dont sweat it texanator. No such thing as a dumb question.. just elitist assholes that give dumb answers.


Not everyone is aware that it is absofarkinglutely impossible to sign a player from another team right now. I didnt know it was completely implausible till i read this thread.

And personally.. I realized when I read your post that you were attempting to get more information on a rumor you heard.. not trying to spread the rumor yourself, or waste anyone's time.

So yeah. Dont sweat the asshats who think they own the place. They just have their panties in a twist.

I think it is the typical media talking heads of
Texans sign "ex-player of Wade Phillips because he knows the system" rumor

Most of us around these parts have much worse moments...I am going to close this in a few minutes though
