Blunt.
More than just the cigar, 3 grown men huddled in the bathroom smoking a cigar? Very odd. As if they couldn't step outside to enjoy that cigar? And only one for all 3? Never shared a cigar with anyone, but shared plenty of the other.

So they went unclaimed through the waiver period. Does this mean that other teams deemed them unworthy or can they still get picked up by other teams? Also how long is that waiver period?

The waiver period is 24 hours. After that, if they have not been claimed, they are FAs and can negotiate with any team.

True, but each one of them was under contract for the rookie minimum, so if nobody was willing to pick up those contracts, there's no reason to believe they'd be interested after they cleared waivers (ie: they'll never be cheaper then they were off the waiver wire).

They should have just snorted lines of coke all night long like any decent celebrity, I mean no skunky smell and it would be out of the system in 3 days.

Silly kids they should have known not to mess with the most awful of all "drugs" the maryjuana. How much tax money is spent fighting this awful, highly addictive and certain averdose causing plant, er I mean drug?

Those kids will find a team who has the wherewithal to get them some counseling, minor "rehab" and then put them back out there. Not the high and mighty Houston Texans we win our championships with guys who only pop steroids and go to church after every practice.

I'd be shocked if at least Wood doesn't get picked up. I would think the Cowboys would be very interested.

Ray Graham has a chance to develop. He was my favorite RB in college football last year. My second favorite? Zac Stacy who had some good runs against us when the Rams came to town.

Guys like Ray Graham and Zac Stacy have heart and work hard.

Cierre Wood blew a great opportunity. I'm glad his ass is gone.

Here is Ray Graham's Texans Touchdown in the preseason.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2tjQ0ahMUM

Keenum handing it off to him. Could have used him last game and we may have beaten the Chiefs. Ray Graham would have found a way to score on that second and goal at the half yard line. The play Greg Jones lost yards on.

I don't know much about Graham, and didn't really focus on him in preseason. In the college highlight video you posted, he showed outstanding lateral movement. Has he recovered that movement since his knee injury?
It clearly seems to be his strength. If he is anywhere close to 100% compared to the vid you posted, he might have the best lateral movement of any RB to ever put on a Texans uniform, TBH.
He looks like a perfect one-cut runner for our system.

The only reason I can even conceive of that would cause them to pass on waivers and sign them immediately is if claiming them off waivers denies them the right to require a physical and drug test, and signing them off the street gives them that right.

If that's the case (and I honestly don't know if it is), the it would be a pretty compelling reason under the circumstances.

For what it's worth:

Montgomery passes drug test after being released:

Quote:
Sam Montgomery’s release from the Houston Texans was not due to marijuana use, as has been reported by ESPN.com. The former LSU Tigers star was among three rookies released by Houston for a team violation prior to the game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Following his release, Montgomery voluntarily submitted to an independent drug test in order to provide further proof and evidence that he was not using illegal drugs. The results of those tests came back negative, confirming his statement that he was not using marijuana or illegal substances.
This isn't to say that Montgomery didn't do anything else that would make getting caught smoking weed (or assuming as much) the final straw, but it's another wrinkle in the story.

In any case, it sucks to see Montgomery cut, both for his status as a third rounder and as a senior at LSU in 2011 who watched him tear up. Hope he finds a good team to sign with; preferably a 4-3 where he's naturally suited...

Heard theory on radio yesterday that they cut Montgomery at same time so they could cover up that they blew the pick. After the above info this sounds more plausible. I still think they are scrambling to save their job. Many of these actions probably should have been done earlier in season or during preseason. We all know this regime is very SLOW and slow to act. Joe still here. Kubiak still here. etc....

Did the team officially release a statement that they were released for drug reasons? Or is it still all twitter based backroom sources?
