The Texans* only had Brown and Newton under contract at OT that had played in an NFL game .... I expected this signing as well as at least one more at the OT spot either in FA or the draft.

Has anyone heard what surgery he actually had? ACL? MCL? How long will he be out?

Somewhat worrisome in that the Texans in the past have not been shy about describing player knee surgeries in the past.

He signed a 4 yr $22 mill contract ast year with the Chiefs. He's not going to get that or probably anywhere close this signing with all the tackles coming to market in FA and the draft.

Kubiak didnt make the decision to cut Winston - Thats on Rick Smith

Gary has a say in personel but it ultimately comes down to Smith and thats who you should blame or credit for roster moves.

Yeah but i seriously doubt Rick just cuts guys without first talking it over/getting an opinion from our offensive guru kubiak.

I mean come on this is the same guy who while we had 1 TE and 1 FB against the pats was putting AJ in the back field and then sending him in motion, like it would fool the defense hahaha.

My point is i'm sure it was ran through Kubiak well before it was decided

1000% sure. Smith had to get Kubiak's and McNair's blessings on that one.

Oh I have no doubt that it was discussed with both Kubiak and McNair .... but when you consider the facts they had little choice but to make some cuts. They had several vet min. guy's on the roster and were still up against the cap being within a couple million of the max for most of the season.

Gary was likely left with the options of losing Winston or Wade Smith and someone else adding up to Winstons dollar figure.
What do you do in that situation ? Cut one guy or multiple players ?!


As for sending players in motion , fooling the defense isnt the only goal - gathering information on the defense and coverage is just as big a part of pre-snap motion as creating favorable matchups.
