Granted. I was trying to exclude hindsight from my response, basically stating that, prior to the season, I was in favor of keeping Swinton AND Mathis. It wasn't an either/or situation, in my mind. Even given Swinton's lack of production this season, I'd still rather have a WR corps of AJ, Gaffney, Armstrong, Mathis, and Swinton. With Swinton working out with the first team offense during the preseason, he had a much better chance to succeed here than in Arizona, where he received no preseason work. Regardless, he's nothing more than a #5 WR and kick return guy. There were at least a couple weeks where he would have had an opportunity to shine with Mathis being sidelined by a hamstring injury.

well if we kept swinton, then he could return the kicks and we could constantly use johnny on offense.

They play the same position...and your use of "mutually exclusive" is incorrect.

I agree...DUMP Bradford. You're presuming Swinton is better than SLOAN THOMAS! How quickly we forget the comments last year that THOMAS was quoted as the "FASTEST TEXAN" by several coaches. ADDITIONALLY...he had the most yards for a receiver this pre-season.

And with the first pick of the 2006 NFL draft, the HOUSTON TEXANS PICK ?!??!

Nope, he was signed by the Titans since they have their top 3 WR's injured. He still may not get much time on the field. They throw to the TE's first and WR's second. Last week Roby and Roydel Williams got over 20 targets between them and will likely be more of the same tomorrow.
