I'm surprised - again - Rick Smith gets something for nothing.

And I heard on the radio that "7 or 8 teams" inquired about Yates after O'Brien announced that Keenum was to be 2nd string and Yates would be released. My question is who else "inquired" and who decided that Dent was to be the pick-up.

And the answer to the "how can we trade someone we'd cut" is we never officially cut him. Apparently, the Texans' phones started ringing before the front office could process the release forms.

I doubt he makes the team but it's nice that we were able to get something for TJ rather than outright cutting him. Gives this linebacker a chance to make a DENT on this defense and surprise us.

I think if there's any chance whatsoever that Dent can contribute to the team in any way, then yes, we did get something for nothing. IMO, ay least

Well, then that's OK too. At least the Texans got another player to take a look at out of the deal. That's a huge improvement over the Texans old way of doing things.

My thinking is we got a possible special teams addition for a guy we were about to let hit the street (Yates).

Dent was a 3rd round pick in 2011 and a starter in Atlanta during the 2012 season when they finished 13-3...
Alright, Cloak... Spill it.
What's the lowdown on this guy.
Did injuries knock him out of his starters job?

Actually a bit of a sneaky move by Rick. The timing/announcement was a bit odd. Then Dave Zangero noted nothing had come across the league wire, and that happens pretty quickly. So Rick put the league on blast that TJ was coming available and the competition began. We'll see if Dent can contribute on special teams, but at worst we got a lemon for nothing.

I mean, they even told TJ he was gonna be released, and the news didn't break until late last night. I think we found out about it as soon as anyone knew.

Apparently, he wanted to go to the Ravens and the Ravens wanted him. I wonder if TJ has the same good thoughts towards the Texans as when he tweeted?

Ravens knew what was going on and decided they would only submit a waiver wire claim -- which they would have lost because ATL was still ahead of BAL on the w.w. Ozzie was out-Ozzied this time.

More than a few teams felt TJ was an upgrade at their backup QB spot, but you just don't give up much for that at this time of year.

Akeem had absolutely no injury history until last year when in the early goings he sustained a shoulder injury, then dealt with his ankle injury (began as a severe high ankle sprain for which he was initially booted) from the 5th week on. He was to undergo an ankle cleanup in mid Feb of this year, but a second opinion changed his mind.....and his team wasn't going to push it since they had already made plans for his replacement by players already on the team.

His injuries were the coup d'tat. He never lived up to his 3rd round pick. Before the last season, there was talk of him sinking to the bottom of the depth chart. The way I see it, we have picked up a very marginal player that furthermore has a decent possibility of playing as a cripple until surgery is performed. And then, who knows.

They got a 2012 starter (Dent) off of a 13-3 team because he got injured last yr. Hopefully Dent recovers and regains his 2012 form. Or atleast becomes a valuable ST's guy. If not then they really didn't lose anything because they were going to cut Yates anyway. (Glass half full)

They should announce that Keenum is going to be cut to see if any interested parties inquire about him.

If anyone was considering surgery for a long-standing high ankle sprain, it means that the ankle was unstable and continuing to grind the joint. Caldwell followed the same course without surgery and continued re-injuring the same ankle, then in compensation sustained a high ankle sprain of the other ankle which he continued to re-injure, never truly ever making it back to respectability. Ever since he left the Texans, he has been tried out by several teams and never offered a contract.

Quote:
Dent also emerged from the 2011 draft—as the next Atlanta pick after Dimitroff made a bold trade, moving up in the first round to acquire standout wide receiver Julio Jones. At age 26, the best may still be yet to come for Dent. Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel may be the coach to elevate his game.

The move makes a lot of sense for both teams, as each player still has room to develop. For the Falcons, they have to be thankful Houston has a crowded quarterback room. Yates can make all the required throws and has flashed the ability to be a serviceable second-stringer.

But the Texans also came away winners here. They created less convolution in their QB situation, which is admittedly far less promising than Atlanta's. At the same time, they added insurance to the front seven, which is smart since Pro Bowl inside linebacker Brian Cushing is coming off a torn LCL and broken fibula.
