Default Texans to sign 5 players on Monday

According Jason La Canfora, Deji Karim is one of them.

Deji Karim and likely another RB. Good, I don't want them to run out of RB's again any time soon and Foster & Tate are dealing with injuries. Also with Dobbins & Jefferson getting released they're going to bring in more LB's. This was to be expected with their cuts last week.

Default Re: Texans to sign 5 players on Monday

Ok so who else are we signing? I've seen several players I would love us give a look at on other practice squads. Chase Thomas lb Stanford, Robert Lester safety Alabama, OT Reid Fragel, WR Cobi Hamilton Arkansas, WR Da'Rick Rogers (if his act has cleaned up.) and OT Vinston Painter, virginia(?).

QB Tyler Wilson is even on the raiders practice squad. Send Schaub packing and bring Tyler in for the rest of the year.

I would be happy to give any of those an opportunity IF we have an opening.

We lost to KC by one and you don't think we have a chance? I think 2 weeks of healing (Newton) & Keenum adjusting more to the ones is intriguing. We saw how Case spread the ball around & imo a healthy rb in Foster would turn the tide. It all depends on Kubiak turning loose the dogs of war.

Here are two familiar names. Fragel has fine technique in pass blocking and can play inside or out; seems to be a good fit for our blocking scheme. Thomas has a high football IQ and has a fine repertoire of pass rushing moves. He doesn't have the bulk or strength to shed 300 pounders but matches up well against tight ends. I liked them both in the draft in the mid rounds and both should be good mid-season pickups.

It's probably too much to ask that we actually have the smarts to pick up these guys at this point in the season.

Most of those guys are players I mocked to us at some point in the draft. Id be happy with some of them right now.

I don't think there are enough "weeks of healing" available for Newton to improve.

We should expect him to be good any day because we have watched Newton suck for a year and a half now.

Well unless 4 of them are the ones I was referring to as wanting, my post is for other openings. The thread indicates 5 are already selected so no opening as of this moment.

Since it hasn't been announced who they're going to sign (With the possible exception of Karim), it could be anyone - including one or more of your guys.

You have been listening to Kubiak too much. It will take at least 9 wins to be a wild card. Do you think we can go 7-2 from this point out? No way. Even 9-7 might not make it. Jerome Solomon had a great article today. He pretty much summed things up.

Glad they are so decisive and prepared if someone goes down. They take an entire week to start and filling the holes created by injury and moronic releases? Nice job Smith, guess you really are as good as everyone thinks. Heaven forbid we had folks in here and gave them two weeks to learn the playbook ...

If Houston can go 1-1 against Indianapolis and beat either New England or Denver 7-2 is possible. The other five games are against Oakland, @Arizona, Jacksonville (x2) and @Tennessee.
