Texans | Look to Sign M. Rivers - from www.KFFL.com
Tue, 17 May 2005 20:52:26 -0700

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports the Houston Texans are apparently going to sign free agent TE Marcellus Rivers (Giants). He visited with the Texans Tuesday, May 17 and the team kept him in town overnight. Rivers was flown in after the Texans found out TE Bennie Joppru was lost for the season with a torn ACL.

This tells me that the Texans were not expecting to much out of Joppru this season.

think he is considered better blocker than receiver. Seems like he has some physical talent, but never put it together. He was drafted the year before the Giants drafted Shockey. Even with Shockey being in and out of line-up he never was looked to in the passing game with the Giants. In no way a lock to make the roster if signed.

Missing the connection. Except for Franks any Free Agent TE signed at this point is spare, some better-named spares (Cam Cleeland,etc), but still a spare. None of the guys with a name you might have heard of is really any better than Rivers, just a name that you have heard of.

Unlike some expectations that I have read on this board, my understanding was the Joppru was 4th on the depth chart basically because he has basically never taken a live game snap (pre-season included).

Cool, that's exactly what I wanted to know. So he is decent, not spectacular. I can live with that. If he is between B. Miller and M. Bruener, I'm happy.

Maybe he can at least get open.

If we go with a two TE set, at least his hands will be better than Bruener's.

I think this is about the best we could hope for, Franks seems like a knee jerk reaction, there is a reason he hasn't gotten looked at this offseason, either GB will retain him or match an offer or something about him.

Maybe someone's TE will fall out of favor. Jerrmay Stevens in seattle is always an option for that. I'm sorry but with this many lower body injuries i dont see Joppru being in the picture again. he will go on the IR AGAIN. He will be asked to re-struture his deal if he doesn't he will be cut.

We dont Need Stellar blocking but he has better size than miller who looks kinda short rivers is 6 5 i think miller is like 6 - 6'2...

Hopefully he can do well enough to be an all around tight end unless bruener's hands have undergone a metamorphsis.

Looks to me to be a temporary type of player that they hope might work out better than expected.

I just hope Marcellus doesn't leave our team to make a rap album.
