Why might they be doing a tryout?

1. Hm. Not sure that Weeks will be at minicamp. They are focusing on non-vets. They had Collin Klein in for a tryout for rookie minicamp because they needed more arms, wanted to see him.

2. Hartson is local. So easy. Might not be a bad thing to check out someone locally for a just in case position.

3. Weeks is the most improbable player on the entire team given his size. He's listed as 5'10" 247 (and the Texans say their roster sheets are not fake weights), but he looks smaller. The reason why he was acquired is that he snaps the ball extremely fast, fast enough that it can make a difference.

All that being said, Hartson listed 6'2, 238.

4. I hope that over the season, nobody pays any attention whatsoever to the long snapper. The end.
