Texans Tryout 8 DB's
 
Quote:

Hamza Abdullah, Tyron Brackenridge, Courtney Bryan, Therrian Fontenot, Nick Graham, Terrence Holt, Daren Stone, and Michael Waddell each got look-sees as the Texans prepare for their 2008 home opener against a Colts team that features pass-catchers like Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, Dallas Clark, and Anthony Gonzalez. Itís a must-win game for both teams; the Texans are 0-3 and the Colts are 1-2.

The Texans presumably are looking for a potential replacement for safety C.C. Brown, who has been placed on injured reserve due to a broken arm suffered on Sunday against the Jaguars.

I know Terrence Holt is Torry's younger brother and I thought he was decent when i saw him play before for Carolina I think...

This focusing on former Broncos by members here is getting out of hand and is starting to look silly. The four players are: Sapp, Meyers, Salaam and Ferguson.

Including the signing of Sapp there are currently 4 former Broncos on the 53 man roster. There are just as many former Packers and former Dolphins on the roster.

Brown, who has been placed on injured reserve due to a broken arm suffered on Sunday against the Jaguars.Talked to a close friend who bleeds bronco orange, drove from Kerrville to Denver a few times to catch some games. He said:

"He is bad ass! Solves all ur problems at safety, fans were irrate that we (the Broncos) released him just because his groin was slow to heal. Hes like this psychotic pinball that just bounces around f!@#ing people up! Lacks a little pass d but makes up for it by killin people"

Sold, sign him....on another note I saw we signed Kevis Boley to the PS

I only quoted you because you were the last to bring it up, I did indeed see the smilie (that's why I included it n the quote); but I promise you somebody will echo your statements but actually mean/believe it. My intent was to just head it off at the pass.

Wasn't taking a shot at you personally, and I should have been more clear in my post.

I take it that you're talking about Abdullah?

I know, bro. That's why I said it in a sarcastic kind of way.

Bronco jokes aside, I still think Abdullah's the better of the bunch. Sadly, probably the better of our current bunch too.

If you bring in someone like an Abdullah - who do you let go? Put DW back on the PS? Barber? Is the PS full?

If there is one thing theTexans have, it is cuttable players. If they cut Ahman Green for instance, how much production have they lost for the rest of the year? They may look short on running backs on roster printouts, but they'd be no shorter on the field.

I agree. You could throw the names of all our DB's on a dart board to determine who's cut.

I'd hope to see Eugene Wilson this week at some point. We know what all the other DB's can do already.

Good point.

Honestly, I've almost completely forgotten about Green. I didn't even remember him as a player that could be cut.

Is he a PILC? Player I'd Like to Cut?

Absolutely! Green adds nothing to this team. Time to cut him loose.

You wonder if last year's injury during this part of the season, along with conditioning concerns during this same part of the season, may have had anything to do with his release. [LINK]
