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.
Still, a long shot at getting a special teams guy or a backup ILB for a guy we were just about to hand walking papers to is worth a shot.

...unless you know that some other team was about to offer something more appealing.

and along those lines, I sure would like to know what the other teams that were interested in Yates were willing to give up... late round picks? another player with a better injury history...
I dunno, just curious.

I wonder if any medical exam reports on the ankle were flying to Houston late night?

Just found this:
Quote:
OVERVIEW
Dent is an undersized, hard-nosed, productive linebacker but lacks the strength to hold up in the box or the pure speed and athleticism needed to start in the NFL. Likely projects as a backup and special teams coverage guy. Does not find the football quick enough when engaged, has a difficult time shedding, but also doesn't possess the range to provide much value out in space or dropping into coverage. Can get sucked in by play-action and will chase underneath routes giving up deeper responsibilities. Just adequate when pressuring the passer. Despite his physical limitations, Dent's mentality will probably make him a late-round pick.

I think moving up to get Nix is even more important. If nothing else Texans are creating buzz in this off season without any sacrifices.

Dent didn't look half bad in the first game against the Rams.

If he doesn't have problem with the ankle, it's a good deal.

All I want to say is....Thanks TJ for that 2011 year. You have no idea what that TD in Cincinatti did for me. It came at the most difficult time in my life and that was the only thing I had to smile about. You'll always have a home with Houston fans man!

You want to give Smith props for taking a phone call? OK. Has the bar dropped that low?

Thank god Yates is finally gone.

At least now I won't have to hear the homers in here clamoring at the ridiculous idea that he would have ever been a starter here much less lead a team to a SB like many in here were spewing a few years ago.

Now all they need to do is get rid of the other joke named Keenum and the purge will be complete.

Yep because we KNOW that's all that happened.

Maybe, just maybe, Rick/BOB played the media and other teams like a fiddle leaking the "he has been waived" rumor to garner some interest.

Smith may not have been the person taking the phone call. Nobody is quite sure what Smith's responsibilities are. He's the Teflon man.

I'm not sure why I'm commenting on this silliness, but is it not possible that Yates sent out his tweet and word got out that way? Someone called the front office after a twitter feed alerted staff members of several NFL teams simultaneously.

Just some free ammo for you, Ric-Smith-is-bad-at-his-job people...
