Default Re: 5 receivers?

I think that the bottom line is that the receivers we have on our roster come opening day will most likely be the same receivers we had on the roster last year, unless one of these new young guys REALLY impresses the coaches. They may be in a different order come opening day, but they will most likely be the same players.

I see Grice-Mullen and Jenkins battling on the practice squad.

You guys would know better than me. I'm in no way an expert of any kind. I just personally wouldn't be surprised if he is being forced to earn his roster spot as opposed to it being given to him last season. I guess I just don't know much at all. Ha!

Just keep in mind that I didn't say nor think that he doesn't deserve a spot on this team. I just more of wanted to stress that I thought that he would have to at least earn his spot this time around, that's all.

Thanks for replying guys!! I really appreciated it!

I also agree with Vinny about Grice-Mullins. I stated why in the UDFA thread. It's hard not to get excited about him though! Even though deep down I know it's going to be very very difficult for him to make the roster but I can't help but dream of him tearing it up for the Texans this season.

I'm thinking Slaton will be the 3rd tailback, or practice squad.
5 WR's we keep:
AJ, A.Davis, J.Jones, K.Walter, H.Williams
Ryan G-M to practice squad.

3rd rounders don't go to the practice squad. You'd just be giving him to another team.

If we can save almost $4million by cutting a player coming back from injury (Ahman Green), have a FA RB the coach is excited about and a rookie with the speed and potential of Slaton, imo Green better bring strawberries to the coach to keep him on roster. The prob with Green is we may not have a clear picture of how he will do and keep him as a fairly reasonable insurance policy. I see Brown as the starter now with Slaton getting reps and some option type plays. If Green will be on the roster, I want to make sure he is absolutely 100 % before he gets the ball. Actually, Green may be very productive as a short yard needed back who can surprise the D and catch a pass for a pretty good chunk. I'm no longer against him as Brown should be the featured back.
