Cut time is really going to be interesting. Do the coaches have the stones to cut a recent draft pick in order to keepan udfa that has outplayed them? Also, do they gamble cutting a guy that is better now with hopes that the guy they're keeping has the higher potential?
Martin has had a very good camp.
Like much better than anyone not named Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins.
You didn't see it in the last preseason game, but he's had a very good camp. Need to make that translate into game situations.
Also, something that makes it hard to evaluate WRs, is that for many teams, the drop off between their 1 & 2 CBs and their other CBs is fairly steep. So some of the highlight reel stuff you were hearing from camp wasn't against the best CBs.
Hopkins has had to work really hard in camp. He gets some great catches, but has to work because it is either JJo or KJ for many reps.
