'Bout dang time Indy starts signing our castoffs.

I believe that's $1,000,000.

They can't put him on PUP now. They had to put him on PUP at the beginning of the preseason and then transition him from pre-season PUP to the regular season PUP.

Their only choices are IR or cutting him.

EDIT: OR leaving him on the team.

The delay may be from working out an injury settlement. They had an MRI done a couple of days ago and have been/are reviewing it, which sounds to me like they are trying to determine the extent of the problem.

They kept talking about the Texans keeping "10" offensive linemen. Kubiak made mention of them being heavy at OL during the presser and knowing they kept Washburn (which makes it 11 for another day or two at least) I thought I'd call and make the point about the 11 OLs including 6 that can play tackle.

By that point in the show, they had gone through all the positions and hadn't mentioned Washburn and the roster spot he will occupy until (I'm guessing) that they are fully convinced that Butler's shoulder checks out okay (and hopefully there's nothing going on with Salaam)... and I thought that was noteworthy and getting lost in the Maddox/Colvin reaction.

Colvin's impact capwise is minimal. He had $1 million of his base guaranteed over for '08 and '09 and that's all that has to be dealt with. He also had a roster bonus in there but I'm guessing that was contingent on him making the team - so that would be a non effect capwise. Since he's a post June 1 cut, I'd assume they can split his dead money over this year and next at $500k per year.

Maybe I'm being a little sentimental, but I'm glad to see N.D. Kalu make the cut. He does have one heck of a work ethic and has been a decent player for us. I was surprised by the Maddox cut, but I'm happy to see Okam make the team. Now it's time for him to get his motor running. I'm excited to see who we sign to the practice squad. Pittsburgh is next up. I'm ready to see what we can really do in some actual games that count. C'mon Texans. We're hoping for great things this season.
