Default Texans Tryout 8 DB's

Quote:
Hamza Abdullah, Tyron Brackenridge, Courtney Bryan, Therrian Fontenot, Nick Graham, Terrence Holt, Daren Stone, and Michael Waddell each got look-sees as the Texans prepare for their 2008 home opener against a Colts team that features pass-catchers like Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, Dallas Clark, and Anthony Gonzalez. Itís a must-win game for both teams; the Texans are 0-3 and the Colts are 1-2.

The Texans presumably are looking for a potential replacement for safety C.C. Brown, who has been placed on injured reserve due to a broken arm suffered on Sunday against the Jaguars.

Carolina fans were upset on letting him go. They thought he did pretty well during pre-season... plus the fact that Torry said he wanted to play with his bother also made their fans want to keep him around.

Maybe the Texans should go this route searching for a new DC ... I can see the headline now :


Quote:
Texans searching for new DC


Texans in search of DC with "balls that clank"

The Houston Texans extended their search for a new defensive coordinator to include eight guy's off the street. It is assumed that all of those candidates for the position are an upgrade over Dick.

Yeah, I think Holt will be a great addition to the secondary. Godfrey took of like a rocket when he was placed in the lineup for the Panthers. He could be at least a 1-2 year answer at FS for the Texans.

Nick Graham 5-10 195 ufa in 07 from the U. of Tulsa
Nick made the Eagles in 07 as a PS player. Made roster after first game in 07 as the number 4 cb and played in 15 games. Lost roster spot when Samual was signed and could nor beat Joselio Hanson for 4th cb in camp.

Nick has some upside. Sure tackler and did see some plays at Safety. Had a lot of special team tackles. Downside is speed, which is about avrage at best. Doesn't have closing speed you would like in a cb.

Fontnot was in the Eagles camp this summer. Went to college at Fresno State. Don't think you want another one from there.

This focusing on former Broncos by members here is getting out of hand and is starting to look silly. The four players are: Sapp, Meyers, Salaam and Ferguson.

Including the signing of Sapp there are currently 4 former Broncos on the 53 man roster. There are just as many former Packers and former Dolphins on the roster.

Brown, who has been placed on injured reserve due to a broken arm suffered on Sunday against the Jaguars.Talked to a close friend who bleeds bronco orange, drove from Kerrville to Denver a few times to catch some games. He said:

"He is bad ass! Solves all ur problems at safety, fans were irrate that we (the Broncos) released him just because his groin was slow to heal. Hes like this psychotic pinball that just bounces around f!@#ing people up! Lacks a little pass d but makes up for it by killin people"

Sold, sign him....on another note I saw we signed Kevis Boley to the PS

I take it that you're talking about Abdullah?

I only quoted you because you were the last to bring it up, I did indeed see the smilie (that's why I included it n the quote); but I promise you somebody will echo your statements but actually mean/believe it. My intent was to just head it off at the pass.

Wasn't taking a shot at you personally, and I should have been more clear in my post.
