Of that list , I like the following for the PS should they clear waivers -

Nate Menkin - OL Nasty
Chris Jones - DL Didn't show as much as I would have liked but this is a premium position
Jake Byrne - TE Dude can play in this league , was a numbers game IMO
Alex Kupper - C Has potential , the second unit protected Keenum & Yates very well Vs. Dallas , only had one mistake against the Cowpatties.
Andy Cruse - WR reminds me of Walter , great hands , great routes and physical.
Mike Mohamed - LB was real close to making the final 53
Cameron Collins - LB Can cover ...

I'd rather keep Mike Mohamed than Darryl Sharpton. Mohamed at least has the size for the position and Sharpton can't stay healthy. I'm guessing Sharpton has blackmail photos of McNair, Kubiak, or Smith. Hopefully Mohamed makes the PS because Sharpton should be hurt again by week 3.

Both moves very much expected ..... Those last few will be really tough decisions.

Andy Cruse has really impressed me.

Kupper needs to play more disciplined.

Do you think Muir will hang on?

True but he has all the tools to be an NFL starter at C , here or elsewhere.

Man , tough call but I have to say no because of the competition at other positions , most notably LBer , DB's and that spot taken by Keenum as the 3rd QB.

Looks like Cierre Wood will be the 3rd Texans running back...

I've learned that Deji Karim has been waived
The cut of Karim is what's surprising to me, especially since he could be a returner on ST's. I don't think Wood plays ST's. At least I never saw him do it. I guess they just didn't want to lose Wood.

wood has the capabilities to be a RB2 if tate leaves in FA next off season. His too good to pass on so I'm very happy with this decision.
and its nice to finally have a golden domer on the team

Martin will likely return punts , he's been relatively reliable in that role in limited exposure in the past. I wont complain.


The difference between Wood & Karim .... Wood has the tools to be a three down back , Karim tops out as a 3rd down guy IMO. Karims ST / return ability gives him value .... but this team can get those things from other players.


The more I watch Wood , the more he reminds me of .... Arian Foster & his issues are much the same as what held Foster back in year one - Picking up the blitz , which he improved upon by leaps and bounds over the course of training camp.

I didn't understand keeping Karim because he can return kicks.

How many kick returners do you need?

Keo. Not going to put him back there unless emergency probably but Ed reed has returned 30 punts in his career. He had one return last year per his stats.

Kick returning isn't a terribly hard skill to find on the waiver wire. Put a guy on the ps that can return punts. Find a guy off the street if Martin and keo get hurt.

I never bought into keeping Deji just to return kicks. He's not THAT good to where you'd keep him over a back that is better with higher upside.

Cant argue with anything in this post .... Then again , we look at teams like Denver (thanks to the Texans) , Chicago & Baltimore (again thanks to the Texans) .... I guess what Im getting at is the only way that returner supersedes a position player is if that returner is .... Special.


Karim wasn't special .... Glad they kept Wood who may yet prove to be such as am every down player.

Cody White I guess is insurance for Wade Smith, although I thought he was awful in preseason.

Tim Dobbins or Justin Tuggle will go when Antonio Smith returns.
