ugh.. Thomas should have made the team. Maybe the coaches just feel that having what is essentially two rookies at WR..is just too risky. But dang it..

I dunno.. maybe its just because Sloan Thomas = Derrick Armstrong = Jabar Gaffney. Maybe you can only use so many "quick" receivers with good hands.
Hollings must be dating the other daughter.

Yeah it does. He got hurt...after game 1. Was still in a tight spot against Bell. Good thing is that he'll be on practice squad. Shows that the coaches are willing to see him heal and potentially make the active squad if needed.

I can't believe that Thomas and Swinton didn't make the team with all that they showed in their abilities to be play makers and what in the **** were Capers and others thinking to keep Bradford. That guy is horrible at running routes and even catching the ball. What's really going on here? I Love the Texans but I don't honestly believe that Thomas and Swinton deserved to be cut in my opinion. Someone should be fired for a lack of evaluating good talent when it's right in front of their eyes.

Default Nooo... Sloan and Swinton expected to be cut...

I think this is wrong... Bradford should be CUT... He hasn't proved us anything while Swinton has been EXCELLENT in special teams and proved himself as a receiver along with Sloan. I am really disappointed here.
Besides the fact is that Swinton and Sloan are BOTH younger than Bradford it would have given us a younger corps.

Well Hope they know what they are doing!

Loaded at WR, Texans forced to cut two at deadline

When the Texans identify the 22 players they have placed on waivers today, it should be obvious that the toughest cuts came at wide receiver.

Reggie Swinton and Sloan Thomas who led the Texans in scoring and receiving in preseason, respectively are expected to be cut as the roster is reduced to 53 names.

I sure hope this isn't the true list. But, if it is, I too, agree that Bradford should be cut. Thomas definitely showed that he can play in this league. He's younger, has speed, size, good hands, & he's cheaper than Bradford. Keeping Thomas over Bradford would save us about $660,000 this year. Look for Dallas to snatch up Thomas.

I'd been thinking that Swinton might not make the roster, even with that great return he made. With PB & Mathis able to fill the role & being better/potentially better at their regular positions, it just makes sense.

I'm hoping & praying that McKenzie makes it to our Taxi Squad. Prior to his injury, he was making plays & looking like the steal of this year's college crop. Imo, if McKenzie hadn't gotten injured, he would've beaten out Bell. Bell might be a good special teams player, but he's a liability on coverage. I pray for the day when we can release him.

Chamberlin is also another player that I'm surprised to see on this list. He was making plays all over the field & I felt he was better than Polk. But, that's just my opinion.

The one player that I feel needs to be cut (other than Bradford), is Banks. I feel that Ragone more than showed he's ready to step up to the next level. With Rohan Davey coming in for a tryout, he'd give us a nice nucleous of young talent at the QB position & we'd be able to save about $850,000, less what it would take to sign Davey.

One last thought. I'm also surprised to see Jason Davis (DL) on this list. I've heard CC rave about how much progress Davis has made this year on several occasions & just assumed that he would make the roster. Maybe, CC was building him up & trying to shop him around for a draft pick.

Default Say it isn't so...

I wonder if this is just speculation by McClain or if he's actually got the inside information. Hollings, Sanders, Bradford and Banks should have all been cut.

To cut the only 2 players to show anything the entire preseason makes no sense.

The offical depth chart no longer shows Thomas or Swinton, but is still show Rivers. It is also shows just 53 players. I wanna know what the staff sees in Hollings and Bradford.

Good catch Hoth, I guess it's official.

I figured Hollings would make it because he is in most of the special teams packages. He has an NFL body and has great speed. He may not be a great feature back at this point in his career but he has value to the roster as the teams 3rd halfback. He will have plenty of special teams snaps to cover his roster spot.

Looks like John Boy knew what he was talking about by the roster and depth chart. Surprised @ 11 OLman (unless I can't count) as the thing not seen mentioned.

Well I can honestly say, this is the first time I'm real disappointed in the Texans GM and Coaching Staff. To me it looks like they want to stay right where they are at. Let us just keep the same old players who haven't done anything for us before. And it isn't just at WR, try the D-line also. Bradford has been on the Team for 3 years and in the league a few before that. And he isn't getting any better, at least with Thomas (I know an unproven risk) but I think he is already as good as Braford, and he has the chance to improve with more playing time (we will see this on the team that signs him).

D-line (I know we drafted TJ) still has the same stiffs of Ioane and Deloach who haven't given us a pass rush in the years they have been here, so lets keep them. Boy that makes since to me. J. Davis and A. Malone were both very active on the line during the preseason, let them get a chance, can't be any worse than the back-ups we have.

And Hollings (they other teams best player), who should be the new Fumbleman for the Justice League on the ExtemeSkins.com cartoons. Like someone else posted either he is dating someone's daugther or the Texans officals don't want to admit they made a mistake by using a second round pick on him.
