Hartmann's career is over.

No one is going to carry him on their roster taking up a spot while he served that suspension. I thought he had a slim chance with his smaller suspension if he punted outstandingly...but with this long suspension? I highly doubt it.

Is his suspension only served while on a teams roster? In that case, yeh, the guys career looks to be over. The best part of a season taking up a roster spot and salary cap on a punter isn't a great sales pitch for the guy.

If a player is suspended BEFORE he is cut, he can serve out the suspension while he is unsigned. If he is suspended AFTER he is cut, then the suspension begins if/when he is signed. The initial 4 game suspension reduced to 3 games could have been served out while he was "unemployed," and that is why there was talk of possibly re-signing him after his suspension was served. The 8 game suspension appears to be an EXTENSION (not a new suspension) of the 3 month suspension, and therefore, he should be eligible to return anytime after that period of time if/when a team signs him.

You're comparing your injury to a guy tearing up his knee and saying he should be fine to punt and kickoff with no problem? C'mon man! Let's put things in context here. If the Texans felt like he was a supreme talent they wouldn't have let him hit the market regardless of his suspension. I swear as fans we fall in love with the weirdest players. He isn't a Shane Lechler type of player. The guy was just ok.

Umm yeah. Having personally gone through the same injury and then some yeah I can speak towards it.

Who knows what kinda player he will become?!? All I'm saying and Marciano said is he was the best punter we had. Period! And yeah they let him walk for obvious reasons. Good Lord man, no one is saying he's the second coming. Keep an eye on him. You don't have to get butthurt if you don't agree.

agree Papa.. I also remember Joe saying his 4.6 hangtime on kickoffs was unreal too

with that said. I hope things turn out for him somewhere. I have no ill feelings and will wait and see what the other 8 weeks were added on for

was he drug tested again before reinstatement?


I don't know. time will tell. but I do wish him the best where ever he goes

Yes. I think he'll get a shot here again.

If he still has the goods, it'd be smart to have him in camp in 2013.

I personally don't care one way or another who punts for us as long as they get the job done. So far Jones has been just fine. Hartmann was decent last year, but I don't understand the love fest surrounding him. As far as the injury goes, the only thing I'm saying is your injury and you bouncing back is different than an athlete on the highest of levels bouncing back.

Either way, he's not on our team anymore so he's just like DeMeco, Mario, Winston, and everybody else. I wish him well, and if he happens to come back and get another opportunity I'll be hoping performs well. I won't go as far as Rey and say his career is over because he's young, but he has some major hurdles to clear first physically and otherwise.

i feel like he'll be in camp next year, depending on his suspension status. He had a monster leg and could lay the wood on returners (i actually miss that about rackers too), plus he is the texans record holder for longest punt..
