What players have been cut?
Have they started the cutting yet? its gotta be to 65 by tuesday, so just wondering if anyone has seen a list.

Per the front page's story line, no news yet as of Sunday evening.

TEXANS roster status

I just wonder if there's gonna be a "I can't beleive they cut (name)" thread in the near future.

Casserly just said on Inside The Game that they have until Tuesday in the afternoon to make cuts, and that they might just wait until then to do it.

The Front Page has a link to the list:

HOUSTON - The Houston Texans waived the following players, it was announced today:

Strong safety Curry Burns, running back KaRon Coleman, guard Curry Dawson, cornerback Vontez Duff, guard Brandon Evans, cornerback Rober’ Freeman, tight end John Frieser, wide receiver Albert Johnson, tackle Brad Lekkerkerker, wide receiver Jermaine Lewis, center Andrew Martin, linebacker Raheem Orr, defensive end D.J. Renteria, kicker Todd Sievers, wide receiver Andrae Thurman and defensive end Bryce Wyatt.

The Texans currently have 70 players on their roster, including five roster exemptions. The reason Houston has 70 rather than the league mandated 65, is because of roster exemptions for players who participated in the NFL Europe League. The following players are the NFL Europe exemptions: C Luke Butkus, P Steve Cheek, LB Antonio Rodriguez, FB Ed Stansbury and WR Chris Taylor. The NFL Europe exemptions will not expire until 3 p.m. CT, on Sunday, September 5, when a 53-player Active List will become effective.
Duff is the biggest surprise....

Raheem Orr????

The one game i saw him play (NE i believe), this LB had a nose for the ball.

Raheem Orr is a rookie. You may be thinking of Shantee Orr.... (they are not related)

Blake 08-30-2004 05:32 PM

I believe you are thinking of Shantee Orr, in the NE game. He is a LB from Michigan. Raheem Orr is the player we drafted from Rutgers this year. I think.

gwallaia 08-30-2004 05:35 PM

Was it Shantee Orr Raheem?

TEXANS84 08-30-2004 05:51 PM

Shantee was the stud during the NE game and especially the Falcons game.

Lets not forget his fumble recovery against the Bills...

I can't believe we cut Duff... That's a shocker.

texasguy346 08-30-2004 06:16 PM

I think Duff was going to be cut inevitably. He was injured and that limited what he could show. If he makes it through waivers he might get a spot on the practice squad. I'm confused about the NFL Europe exemptions. What are the requirements that make a player exempt? Didn't Freeman and Johnson both play in NFL Europe as well? I remember hearing that the Saints had 7 players that were exempt so I guess there isn't a standard number of exemptions. Hopefully someone can shed the light on the exemptions for me.

mes311 08-30-2004 07:12 PM

Kinda suprised that Brad L. was cut this time around. I thought he might make it to the last set and get placed on the practice squad cause that can't be filled out until the day after final cuts. Only surprised because he recieved one of the highest signing bonuses of any undrafted FAs.

pittbull 08-30-2004 07:50 PM

I said it!
I knew Moses was a lock! There is no way this guy gets cut no. Thats the reason they drafted Duff, as a potential two way help player! Now that he is gone, Moses is all but a lock! :headbang:

aj. 08-30-2004 08:16 PM

Duff wasn't a surprise to me. I look at him and I see a RB -- a smaller, slower version of Lo White who obviously wasn't a viable option as a backup DB. The injury didn't help but there's probably more to it than what we see.

Moses' isn't a lock and his competition hasn't been Duff for about two weeks now. (Starling)

rdbrem 08-30-2004 08:24 PM

Agreed. Starling bumped Duff as a returner last week. The competition's now down to Starling and Moses. They could keep Moses, put Starling on the practice squad, and still change them out later. A returner's job is never secure.

But I sure wish they'd try Moses as a receiver, for just one game. That way, nobody gets hurt...

aj. 08-30-2004 08:32 PM

No need to put Moses as receiver. They already know what he can do there.

Starling makes the 53 unless he has a big time setback on Thursday night. The Texans really like him. There is a scenario where they could keep both but I don't see that happening.

rdbrem 08-30-2004 08:36 PM

I don't care if they know what he can do there, I want to see it myself. Just for the fun of it.

dredge 08-30-2004 09:15 PM

I was a bit surprised by Brad L. too. I didn't see him get much time this year though, so it shouldn't have been a big surprise I guess. Since he was pursued by several teams, I wonder if someone else will sign him for their practice squad?
Maybe since we cut him so early, no one else will claim him and we can put him on our practice squad.
