That's like saying Jordan Black is solid. I never seen him do bad, but thats good for an o-line. Wow guys seriously.

Btw, Solid to me means contributing more to the team then hurting.
LOL. I cant help but laugh at people that dont watch special teams.

Just cuz a guy isnt a "starter" doesn't mean he cant contributre to a team.

I love watching special teams myself. That's where the slobber-knockers are. Cook, Cox, Clark and Dreesen made some sweet hits that still stick out at me. I think Faggins even got some slobber on him a time or two.

Special Teams + Suicidal Kamikaze Hits = Love it!

I heard from someone close to the situation today saying the Texans re-signed Abbate for 1.8 mil. He was let go due to his injured reserve status, and then quickly signed to a new contract.

Not sure if it's a one year deal or what, but I imagine he'll challenge for a roster spot at FB.

I might be wrong, but I think his IR status should only last until the end of the current season, so he should have been off the list once the season ended.

I emailed the Texans and they replied that he was re-signed and not released.

Then I looked at the info on that page and at the bottom, it list "V.P. of football operations and GM: Charley Casserly", I figured the hacks of this publication were alittle off on their "news".

On the email I sent them, I did however thank them getting the name of the team right!

Yes sir, you'd be correct! My response was to the websites inaccuracies of the teams page on the periodical, ProFootball Weekly.

I think his skill set is better suited to LB and wish they'd give him a legit shot at it.

So...what's the benefit of waiving him, and then re-signing him?

Didn't they have to waive him to get him off of IR?

No they can just activate him now that the season is over.
