I have been saying for two months all this talk about letting Jones go and having to draft a WR in the first two rounds is nothing more than arm chair GM talk. When it comes down to it Kubiak seems ok with what we have. He may want to add a little depth somewhere along the lines but there won't be the major changes that everyone has there heart set on.

There are receivers out there better than Jacoby that are being paid less.

It's not about drafting a replacement. It's about cutting somebody who is overpaid and under produces first and foremost.

They just did that with Winston, and they're probably going to do it with Demeco.

Two guys that everyone here would consider to be much safer bets to stay on the roster before the offseason started.

You ready to double-down on Jacoby's 2012 Texan campaign still?

Personally I would of never given him a new contract. It doesn't matter what you I think. It's what Kubiak and Smith thinks. I don't see them giving up on JJ yet.


I also think the Demeco rumors are BS by the way.

Signed a 3 year $10.5M deal with $3M guaranteed and a $1.5M signing bonus.

2011: $2M salary l $500K bonus
2012: $3M salary l $500K bonus
2013: $4M salary l $500K bonus

After the signing bonus there's an extra $1.5M that's guaranteed. Likely some of that was in his first year's salary. But WORST case scenario his contract reads "$1.5M of 2012 salary is guaranteed". So if we cut him, we owe him that plus the $1M unallocated signing bonus for a total of $2.5M.

That's still a $1M cap savings worst case scenario. If we do lose him do need to sign a WR and a PR. So that factors into the cost benefit thought process.

Best case scenario, $1.5M of his 2011 salary was fully guaranteed. In that event we'd only be on the hook for $1M this season and that'd be a $2.5M savings in 2012 and definitely would help more in 2013.

True... I bet the front office waits until the draft. If we draft a good WR we may cut him then. That would honestly be the smart move. Unless we're going after Wayne or another FA WR.

In every organization there are people like Jacoby Jones. They are worthless and fail time after time.

However, the higher ups just like the guy for reasons no one else can figure out. Meanwhile, good productive people become budget cut casualties.

The garbage guy still survives cut after cut and the rest of the employees just scratch their heads.

This is a sad reality in today's world. Sometimes being a failure does pay.

Finally, someone backing things up with facts.

No way could we sign a #3 receiver AND a punt returner of his caliber for $2.5mm. I'd rather keep him and not have to worry about replacements. I'm more concerned about finding an OLB to replace Mario, as well as keeping our OL as intact as possible.

100 percent spot on. And it doesn't just apply to just sports. I have witnessed that in action at more than one place I have worked. I have seen solid, productive, contributors get laid off while lazy, "likeable" people are saved. It's one of the reasons why I'm sick of office politics and want to run my own business. But that's another story.

Isn't there something about cutting a guy after June 1?

We are allowed to cut two guys NOW but designate them as a post-June 1st cut, in order to save money. Maybe we're needing to wait until free agency settles a bit, then the draft, and THEN cut him?

Jacoby Jones was cut today.

No, seriously. He had his balls cut off. He was cut today.

The good news is that this saves us about two testicles off the cap, which by Spotrac's calculations equals about $3.27 in actual cap dollars. Though LaCanfora's figures say it's more like $327 in cap dollars. Kirwan says "No, those are not correct. It's $0.37 in cap dollars."

I guess there's no way to know for sure. Par for the course, I suppose.

I've developed a mind altering program that Smithiak will never see coming. They'll do crazy stuff like releasing Eric Winston and keeping Jacoby Jones. It's brilliant! And then I'll offer Payton Manning One Billion dollars to take down the Texans. Bwaaaa Bwaaaa Bwaaaa.

Not sure if you heard it mentioned, but Winston failed a physical, which is why he was released (link (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/14/texans-released-winston-with-failed-physical-designation/))


I'm not saying this is the case, but perhaps the Texans are more confident that they can replace offensive linemen than they can their wide receivers. Granted, Jacoby isn't that good, but he's still a body to keep on the roster until a replacement can be found. Hopefully that replacement comes soon and he's a gonner.

Of course he's going to fail a physical. He just had his ankle scoped. It was just an excuse that we used along with the fact he was a cap casualty

Was he released "because" of a physical, or failed an exit physical?

He had surgery on his ankle it February, and expects to be cleared in two weeks... I doubt they gave him a physical then said "oops, cant have that, you're cut..."

From what i understand, after being cut you take a physical, at least that's what Winston hinted to on the radio tuesday (J and R on 610)...

Hou-Tex said it. Man, you need to stop drinking the kool-aid and call a spade a spade. Releasing Winston without having Myers and Briesel as done deals is D-U-M-B. If you can't see that, you are blind. Last yr the FO was brilliant, and if we hadn't lost Mario and especially Schaub I think we had the inside track on the SB.

Now this year is the opposite. Every move they have made so far is totally counter-productive to improving or at least maintaining the product they put on the field last year. And Butt Adams will have the last laugh when Manning owns us twice a year again, meanwhile our idiotic owner goes on talk shows telling us how we will beat him no problem "like we have before". Does McNair have a any clue what our record is against Manning led clubs? It's like this whole ownership and FO lives in another dimension or something.

Just so there are no misconceptions, I do like Jacoby, but I do believe his days are numbered. I saw nothing last year to justify paying him $4.5M dollars this season.

However, He can stay on the roster till the final cut & not cost us a dime. I expect him to be here at least until then.

I like Jacoby, but was baffled by that contract same as you. He's got the potential to live up to it, he had his shot last year, didn't do it. I can't imagine what he can do in practice to make anyone think he will live up to it this season, or what a Lestar Jean or Jeff Mahel, or any other inexperienced WR could do to make us believe they couldn't match Jj's 2011 production.

Well, on the bright side, the success of 2011 will carry over in season ticket and merchandise sales for years to come!

Of course, the "bright side" depends on what side of aisle you're on... :thinking:

I do not want to be pessimistic at this point, and reserve judgment until we see how they go about their business over the next couple of months. However, you have some good points, and honestly, they are giving us very little to be optimistic about these days. If it wasn't for signing Foster, I'm not sure what good news we'd have right now.

I'm not trying to sit here and say the cut was justified. Maybe the Texans have not been satisfied with his performance (seeing as Robert Mathis always treats him like a revolving door) and have other plans. I don't know for sure. It certainly caught me by surprise, as I have always liked Winston. But for some reason the Texans front office seems hellbent on removing every player from the 2006 draft but Owen and DeMeco (and rumor has had it that even DeMeco might be out).

Why is this mother****er still on my team?

Has to be cut after June 1. You only get to cut two player prior to June 1, to qualify for some sort of savings for some **** or another, and I think Jacoby is safe until June 1....the draft will have come and gone, and we'll know if we have a good enough WR crew to let him get cut at June 1.

I think he's dead man walking...but the date is set at June 1 or June 2.

That's my theory. We've cut the guys who can get us money and space free'd up for the remaining Texans UFAs we need to sign back up. There'll be more cuts, but it won't be done until the time calls for it. My two cents.
