As the Ogre pointed out, JJ has two major obstacles to overcome if he is to stay on the team. I think he is a longshot. We cannot afford to have someone fill a "dead space" at WR. We have too many good young prospects that have a legit shot at making an impact to keep dead weight there. He simply doesn't have the size/speed ratio to make any real impact at WR. Secondly, yes he is as quick as a hiccup, but slow as a turtle. Since he is dead weight at WR, the only way you can keep him is if he is among the truly elite, and with his less than scintilating speed, he clearly isn't "elite". I don't need to consult Kreskin on this one. The handwriting was on the wall. If you want to really know what the Texans plan on doing, please consult the Draft, day 2, 4/24. They didn't just blow a draft choice on some longshot. They could do that with a post draft free agent signee. No, they drafted Duff with the clear intention of having him supplant JJ. JJ is a helluva guy, and I wish hiim the best. But, his odds on making the final roster hinge on having others get injured. Not very likely imo.
