Default Texans pursuing Jerome Pathon

According to Len Pasquarelli on ESPN Insider the Texans are pursuing WR Jerome Pathon.

Quote:
The Texans are interested in signing Pathon. Pathon, who worked out for Houston coaches and team officials on Thursday, played sparingly for the Falcons last season, catching only one pass in eight games.

Is this a backup plan to Moulds?

Has to be. Don't see getting another WR in FA if we sign Moulds.

I really hope we dont sign him...Hes decent and all but we really need to focus on getting moulds and then building through the draft while still being able to save some cap space.

It better be, and not a very good one.... I think Pathon would come here as a 4th WR behind AJ, Walter and Mathis

This makes no sense at all. The only reason I would think this would be is if there was any hint of doubt that moulds may fall through. AND NO, before you ask, Pathon is not better than Moulds, but maybe they are looking for a backup plan to add more experience WR as depth for a need now mentality, versus using on rookies to bring them up slowly.

This tells me they want the WR this year to be done through FA and use the Draft to get Offensive Lineman and other positions to add depth and get a couple starters in the draft.

Maybe they are looking at Pathon as a replacement to Armstrong. Who is about to be signed by the Patriots last I read.

It's probably just a ploy to get Buffalo thinking that the Texans might be willing to walk away from the Moulds deal and sign someone else. Sort of push them into taking the 5th rounder. Didn't Philly only offer a 6th? I'm kind of surprised that no other teams have really shown much interest in Moulds. I can't see where Buffalo has any leverage against us.

this may me just incase we lose armstrong. it cant be a backup to the moulds deal. i dont think you can consider pathon a #2 receiver. if we got him, it would probably be for the vet minimum. should have nothing to do with the moulds deal.
he worked out for us yesterday. by then i think our FO was pretty sure they were getting moulds. The moulds deal is essentially done. the only reason its not going to be until monday is because the bulk of our regime has gone to california for USC's proday. They will be back on monday.

What's the date on the story?
also, is there a link? I suppose not since it's an insider story.

I guess not! Pathon was with the Colts 4 years, Saints 3 years (Never a good thing) and the Falcons last year. Moulds worst receiving stats are still better by far than Pathon's. Unless Kubiak sees something the stats aren't saying - something is not quite right.

You could be correct in that we are looking for some depth at WR and Pathon is a warm body one can get relatively cheaply.

Probably a backup plan for Moulds or Armstrong.

I'd like to see them looking at FA linemen and DBs, if there's still cap room.

The date is todays. i pretty much posted exactly what the report said. i gave you the source as well. i can give you the link but you would have to sign in to see it.

if you goto espn insider's rumor central there may be a chance where you can see pathon and the Texans under interested without signing in, but it wont give you the article.

I think it's a backup plan in case Armstrong is released. I would see Pathon ahead of Mathis.

Pathon isn't a starting caliber player so he isn't a backup plan to Moulds. What Pathon is, is a veteran WR who can make plays and understands the NFL. Decent quality depth is one thing we really have never had since we are just now busting out of being an 'expansion' team. Mathis is a LONG way from being a reliable WR imo.

Perhaps Kubiak is thinking of only using Mathis as solely a return/special teams guy?

I wonder if that would put Mathis as their exclusive KR PR specialist because he is so fast. Because you would figure

#1 AJ
#2 Moulds
#3 Walter
#4 Pathon
#5/KR PR Mathis

This guy has nothing to do with Moulds at all. He is a backup/reserve

There making all these moves to allow them to go after DBs and OL in the draft. They notice the decent depth and potential at OL and DB and want to use their good picks on them and not use high picks on so-so WR.

I might actually put Pathon ahead of Walter right now, atleast until we see some production from him.
