Default Come one come all---But Tim Carter?

Are we just wholesaling warm bodies prior to camp? This latest acquisition of Tim Carter somewhat scares me. Isn't he the blazer who's "hands" can't be helped with roach baited adhesive gloves?

Quote:
Also in Texans news: general manager Rick Smith continues to tweak the roster.

Seven-year veteran receivers Jimmy Williams and Tim Carter were each added this week, along with receiver Mark Simmons and tight end Ryan Krause.

Williams joined the Texans for mini-camp two weeks ago on a tryout basis. Carter participated in practice for the first time Thursday.

"I think that's the first thing you think about is the experience," Smith said. "They are guys who understand the game, know how we work. I think they are still good football players. In the case of Tim — with (Ryan) Grice-Mullen and Andre (Johnson) nursing a couple of injuries — we needed a couple of more players. And I think he's a guy who can really compete with our group.

My guess is "warm bodies" CND. But you never know, if one of them makes enough of an impression.... JMHO!

Everybody remember Keenan McCardell? What about Roc Alexander, Chukki Okobi? Etc etc? I don't mind obvious fodder being brought in to compete with the vets and the rooks and whomever.

Isn't the "warm bodies" operation how we got Anthony Maddox in '06? Yeah, I'm not worried about it. The more the merrier!

I think it's CND's 'warm body' take with Tim Carter, too.

Its all about the team speed with Carter. Kubiak says he want to get faster, Carter is fast.

I figure that is why he got the phone call, not saying he wins a roster spot, in fact I doubt he does, but I guess that is why that 'warm body' was chosen.

Signing off the street an ex-Brown, second-round-pick in 2001 whose had, to date, a disappointing career so that he can compete for a WR spot? That'll NEVER work, I tell you. Never!

Im with b0ng on this one.

Maybe none of them make the team in the end but how will they know that they have the best 11 out there if they don't take chances on these guys. AD wasn't exactly highly thought of as a WR coming of that season with the Bills.

I think its the warm bodies thing.

The 8o man roster limit is hurting teams with out NFL Europa. Teams don't want to burn out thier recievers with too many reps in camp.

I don't know the Williams guy, but Tim Carter has been a decent WR, although not what a 2nd rounder should be probably. Didn't he play for the Giants though or have I got the wrong guy?

You've got the right guy, but the label of a "decent" WR may be stretching it.

Back in college, he had some spectacular returns on special teams for Auburn. But the Giants and Browns don't seem to have used him as such.
Who knows if they don't want to see what he can do in that capacity.
Check out this video of his return against LSU.

My guess is that he is a camp guy. They need someone to do runbacks on punts and kickoffs practice without running down JJ & AD with that duty. If he shows really, really well doing it, he might make the team. I doubt it, but you never know if he does great and they want to take some load off of JJ and/or AD during the season. Plus, he gives another speed guy to throw to and for the DBs to work against during TC.
