And, I'm sure being cut and only starting a couple games will lessen his value when the picks are rewarded to the Texans for the signings of: Barwin, Casey, Quin, Ball, Forsett, .

It's the best move the Texans could have made at this point... I'm glad they are willing to admit a mistake this quickly, at least- instead of keeping him around and attempting to justify it or hide it.
LOL at number 1
On number 2 - I don't think you get compensation if you cut someone

On your last point. Keo beat him out. That was embarrassing enough. I don't see any good spin here...but I gotta hand it to you and those sunshine pumpers.
