I e-mailed the Texans and asked for clarification. If they write back, I'll let y'all know what they said.

Could it be that this is medically related?

Sounds like a possibility. Perhaps he hasn't passed a physical or something to that extent.

I think you guys are right. It might be related to his shoulder injury he suffered last season while playing for the San Diego Chargers. Although you think he would have been fully rehabiliated by now and ready to be signed by the Texans or someone else.

Default Moreno finally signed

From the Texans main site

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ne...php?PRKey=1675

HOUSTON - The Houston Texans announced today that they have signed unrestricted free agent LB Zeke Moreno, free agent P Curtis Ansel and rookie free agent OT Myniya Smith.

Moreno (6-2, 235) played in 57 games, starting 15 during his four seasons with the San Diego Chargers. Drafted by the Chargers in the fifth round of the 2001 draft from Southern California, Moreno has 141 total tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries during his career.

Moreno’s best season was 2003 when he started 12 games totaling 78 tackles, two sacks and two fumble recoveries. He played in nine games in 2004 before being sidelines with a shoulder injury that landed him on the Reserve/Injured list (11/15/04).

Ansel (6-0, 210) originally signed with Detroit as an undrafted rookie free agent. He was released after training camp (8/23/04). Ansel played collegiate football at Kansas where he recorded 154 career punts for 6,344 yards (41.2 avg.) and set the Big 12 record for the longest punt (83 yards at Baylor).

Smith (6-6, 343) participated as a rookie free agent tryout. He signs with the Texans out of Southern University where he started 10 games for the Jaguars and was voted first-team All-SWAC.

I guess this means our LB depth chart looks like this:

OLB
Babin, Peek, Anderson, Pettway, Orr, Cheatwood, Acholonu, Dunn

ILB
Greenwood, Wong, Moreno, Polk, Evans, Monk, Chamberlain, Harrison, Morretti

We probably only carry the top 4 at each on our 53-man roster.
The final spot at OLB should be a dogfight at camp.

ESPN is now reporting that we signed him and a few others:

ESPN

Linebacker Zeke Moreno, punter Curtis Ansel and undrafted rookie free agent Myniya Smith all signed on Tuesday.

Uh oh, looks like Wong's spot might not even be safe with the sounds of that report.

Usual kffl.com report... Barring injury, I doubt we will see him starting in Week 1.

Thu, 5 May 2005 10:21:50 -0700

Nick Schenck, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans recently signed LB Zeke Moreno (shoulder) is appreciative for the opportunity given to him by the Texans after missing the final seven games with a dislocated shoulder while with the San Diego Chargers in 2004. Moreno is completely recovered from the injury and ready to contribute this year. "The organization here gave me a great chance," Moreno said. "They've been really hospitable to me, so I'm just thankful for the opportunity and I'm just going to go out there and work hard and see what happens."
