Who's assessing blame? You are, that's who. I'm just commenting on what Capers said on the radio this morning. He said that if Glenn is uncomfortable he would allow him to seek a trade. Apparently Glenn thought about it and became uncomfortable.

it's going to be tough for him on any other team. He won't get the $$, and most teams are already set at CB. If they can't reconcile then they will let him go soon. It's a shame because I personally think D-Rob needs another year under Glenn, he may be a rookie of the year candidate but he'll be going up against other teams #1's next year. That is not entirely conforting. And Buchanon was a major bust in Raiderville, he changes because of the scenery?

The Texans have created more questions than answers this offseason.

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Houston Texans have granted CB Aaron Glenn permission to seek a trade with a limited number of other teams. If a trade is not able to be worked out, Glenn is likely to be released as early as Tuesday, April 26.

I agree that Dunta could use another year under AG. My jury is still out on PB. He committed one of 2 unpardonable sins in sports. He called out his teammates and said some were quitters. You just don't do that and stay with the same team. I'll leave it to you to decide if he was right about that or not. I figure PB to go against the #1, not Dunta. PB is a very atheletic CB with 3 yrs exp.
The 2nd unpardonable sin, by the way, is QUITTING on your teammates. I haven't heard anyone say that PB has given less than 100%.

I know what ya mean. But that would imply that the coaching staff allowed this to happen, and no coach is gonna let that slide. It puts HIS job in jeopordy. Easier to deal with one "malcontent" than admit you let your team lay down on you. Not exactly fair, but who said it has to be?

Default Glenn allowed to seek trade before being released

LINK

It appears that the Houston Texans tenure of three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Aaron Glenn, the third veteran brought aboard by the fledgling franchise in the 2002 expansion draft, is about to end.

Glenn and agent Jimmy Sexton have been granted permission by Texans officials to seek trade opportunities with a limited number of other teams, ESPN.com has learned. But if potential trade partners are not quickly identified, Glenn almost certainly will be released, possibly as early as Tuesday.

Among the franchises with whom Glenn is permitted to speak are believed to be the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys. It is not known how ardent teams will be in pursuit of Glenn in a trade, since he will be jettisoned if a deal is not struck, and would then be available as a free agent.

The 11-year veteran, one of the NFL's top coverage defenders for much of his career, became expendable last week when the Texans acquired three-year veteran cornerback and former first-round draft choice Phillip Buchanon from the Oakland Raiders. The acquisition of Buchanon, who figures to team with second-year standout Dunta Robinson in the starting lineup, provides the Texans two young cornerbacks.

Robinson was one of the NFL's top defensive rookies in 2004.

In addition, Demarcus Faggins developed for the Texans into a solid nickel cornerback in 2004 and was recently rewarded with a new contract. Houston also signed unrestricted free agent corner Lewis Sanders several weeks ago.

I'm confused. First, when PB's acquired, we're told a team can never have too many good cover guys, and then we're told we're pushing one right out of the boat because of the POSSIBILITY that a so-far-underachieving young outsider could be better? Sounds like Greenwood/Sharper all over again.

This franchise is really coming up with an odd approach on how to treat its talented veterans.

If Glenn stays, PB is a good pickup. If he doesn't, this defense is changing too much and too quickly.

Sharper DID underachieve. 180 tackles 5 yards downfield is hardly productive. And it sounds like AG ASKED for permission to seek a trade. I'm sure DC and CC were giving an accomplished veteran his due when they agreed to his request. Do you REALLY think DC and CC want to see Glenn leave? I thought drug use was on the decline in this country. LOL

I am not sure where we have gotten the idea that the Texans have been trying to cut or run-off Sharper and Glenn. I believe this idea is probably a fabrication of the media, and perhaps certain people on this board, which is not well substantiated. It appears to me that the Texans wanted to work things out with both of these guys, and are still trying with Aaron Glenn.

However, it is a radical idea to permit an unhappy player to pursue a trade, and then grant an unconditional release to that player. This is really unconventional, and is an emerging policy that is significant, important, and worthy of discussion. I am not aware of another team that has established a pattern and practice of dealing with unhappy players with large salaries in this particular fashion. These have included big name players, who are starters and even pro bowlers. Very interesting stuff we are seeing right now.

I agree. Given Sharper's age, and the problem about his knee that came out after he was released and signed by the Seahawks, and what his cap hit would have been this season, I think those are the main factors that contributed to the release of Sharper. Just MO.

It pretty much amounts to announcing that you're going to release the player shortly. Nobody is going to trade for an older player with a large contract when they know he's going to be much cheaper once he's been released.

An interesting approach though I agree.

The Texans are doing the right thing, New England does that every year and still get better with younger players. We have to cut down on players that cost too much to keep. If you have a good system then the players that we bring in will fill the need just the same as the top names players. New England didn't win the last superbowl with Ty Law they won it with no name corners. If we want to win and move on then we can't get too attached to our favoraite players. This is the new era of sports, the players wanted free agency and with that we kissed loyalty good bye. Get used to it. Maybe David Carr is next if he doesn't get to the next level.
