Default Re: The Story of Willie Jefferson OLB SFA

I'm interested to see how he plays on special teams kick coverage. That will earn him a roster spot similiar to Braman and keep him off the practice squad.

Reggie Herring thinks he could be the Texans 3rd down edge rusher DURING the regular season, IF he has a good preseason.

He played pretty well at training camp on Friday. I saw him jump really high and block a pass down the middle. He also had a few plays that would have been a sack, but that was with the second squad of a veteran day off...

Even though...

Willie Jefferson eats five meals a day and lifts weights like crazy to gain weight and get stronger. He has amazing quickness off the edge.

Gary Kubiak says rookie OLB Willie Jefferson has a "chance to help us immediately." Jefferson is almost 6-6 and is up to 250 from 233.
I still have to think the game catches up to him at some point in the preseason. If not, and he's able to keep his head above water, then the Texans Front Office has made a tremendous steal from the UDFA ranks. Here's hoping...

I think you're right while he's playing every down in the preseason. But I think Kubiak is probably looking at him as a situational pass rusher at this point. Allow him to play and not think too much. That's why I think its important for Sam to get back healthy. He'll probably play the run a lot better.

Here, in the OP of this thread, we hear that Willie Jefferson & his friend were busted as they fell asleep in the Taco Bell Drive through.

When I heard the Taco Bell thing, I thought, "No big deal." It's a little thing. NOW, after finding out Baylor addressed this issue several times kicked him out of the program, then he still has issues @ SFA... I'm starting to wonder about this kid. Wonder if he truly understands & appreciates the position he is in.

He appears to be a talented MoFo, but I hope his drug days are behind him, regardless how "recreational"

We obviously don't really know, but Braman also had drug issues in college and is arguably our best non-kicker special teamer.

I didn't know Braman had "drug issues". I thought he was just gardening up some little ol' 'schrooms and got popped.

Oh... yeah! Yeah. That's it.

He was just doing some extra credit for a GARDENING class and got popped for growing those shrooms. That's it.

Shroom Gardening 201. Very popular class for certain biology majors.

Yes, having a mushroom chemistry lab means he had a drug issue. He either was selling, using, or both. dude pled guilty to having the lab. No need to defend a guy who admitted to doing something illegal.

Did Braman get kicked out of a good-great program, then continue to show problems on his "second chance"

I'm not saying the Texans shouldn't have signed him, I'm saying I hope Willie Jefferson understands how lucky he is. This is at least his third chance, most guys don't get one.

Texans will cut him for being a pot head, but it doesn't mean other teams will..

Bengals, Cowboys, Pats, would gladly sign Willie if he's good. Regardless, of his off the field stuff.

Didn't know he had trouble at SFA, I thought it was his days at Baylor where he was puffin.'

Hasn't worked out well at all for the Bengals, so I don't know if we should start doing what they're doing. The Cowboys, pretty much the same boat.

The Pats... I've got a feeling they're going to change that practice. Just a hunch.
