All those players were cut or let go. Pollard & Leach we didn't want to pay them so we let their contracts expire. Jacoby & Trindon, straight up cut...
I understand where you're coming from, but it doesn't bother me that these guys go on to find success, especially guys like Trindon & Jacoby who wouldn't be in the league if not for the Texans taking a chance on little known talented players.
What upsets me, is that we get nothing for them. Trindon & Jacoby were draft picks. Pollard we only had for one year & he was a standout in KC already. Someone would have picked him up anyway, so it would have been difficult to get anything in return for him.
Leach, was unknown & under appreciated before he came here though. They knew they had a commodity there & they knew they weren't going to pay him. They pay Jacoby, KDub, & Winston & had to let Leach go.
