I think you have hit on the big question. Who do you keep for the final roster? Are the Texans really thinking playoffs this year? If so then they keep the best 53 players for the run. If they believe it will be next year then some of middle players will have to go. I believe that some of those players are Banks, Sears, Wright, Simmons, Washington, Miller, Ioane, J Bell,
D Vaughn. I like alot of these players but I think it is harder for them to make the team when you are looking down the road.
