If the Texans cut Shelly Smith, then they currently have 52 players on the roster and have room to pick up one more. Probably an Offensive Tackle to replace Butler.

Ya I think we bring up a OT off waivers. Maybe leave the spot open or call up Pleasant.

Keenum and Grimes were the two most important to me. I'm glad we are still holding on to them. Grimes looked pretty damn good against the other guys 2s and 3s. Good enough to make me think he had a MUCH better chance of getting snatched away from us before Keenum.

Now I guess we wait and see where they pick up an OL person for that 53rd roster spot.

Yep, typical hotheaded response from an immature guy who doesn't know his place. Not only should the Texans be concerned about that sort of attitude, but so should other teams that are interested.

How was that hotheaded? Sounds like a guy who believes in himself and will not quit. Bryant would've made the team in most years. The Texans are just too deep at the position, right now.

And a player can end up on a team's practice squad a third time, but only as long as that team maintains 53-players on their active/inactive roster. If the team drops below 53-players, that player must automatically be placed onto the main roster.

Been seeing that salary reported as absolute. It's not. Teams often pay more to entice a player to play for them. But it counts on cap.

$5,700/wk or $96,900/yr salary for practice squad players (if on PS for 17 wks) is the "minimum" salary for ps players. Teams can pay more

Thanks, I had no clue either, LOL. It may not be attitude, it could be that he was not supposed to be rushing the qb on some of his sacks, or like someone said just numbers. That's something we will never know but he did look good to me.

Kubiak feels that his mission in life is tutoring young quarterbacks.

Keenum will get this year and next training camp to show something.

If not, next project up.

I wouldn't call Keenum a bum. Bums don't try, see: Ryan Leaf. But I do not think Kubiak will be successful with this particular project. The UH system just doesn't produce good NFL quarterbacks.

I think the Cardinals just discovered this.

Per Jenny Vrentas on twitter:

Source says Jets put in conditional claims on T Steven Baker, LB DJ Bryant, RB Jonathan grimes, OL Hayworth Hicks + WR Jermaine Kearse … That means Jets had some interest in those guys but they were crossed off their list when higher priority claims filled.

Yes. Grimes cleared waivers, he's officially on the practice squad. In order to get him now, a team has to put him on their 53 man active squad.

Before he's on the practice squad, I don't know. Once he's on the practice squad, then yes, you have to sign him to your active roster.

Honestly, I not sure of the difference.

When you claim a player off waivers he goes onto your 53 man roster. The only way that team can try to get him onto their practice squad is to send him through waivers again. If he clears waivers its his option what PS he wants to sign with so he could just as easily choose to come right back to the Texans.

If a player makes it through waivers, he can then negotiate with any team. Could be that the Texans want one of their own that they released back on the PS.......and negotiations are going slowly or poorly to that end. Maybe even having to do with the Jets preliminary report re. Bryant or Grimes

This is also how I understand things. The Jets were afraid that some of their potential practice squad guys wouldn't clear waivers. So they targeted Grimes and Bryant (among others) to fill those spots just in case. Apparently their original guys cleared waivers and Grimes (and probably Bryant) weren't needed.

Edit: Makes me wonder if we had some conditional selections...?
...and how many?
