That's Carlton Thompson's opinion and none of us know when he's referring to "all indications" if he simply reflecting on the Starling - Gaffney tryouts or if he really has some insider info.

It's in the Football extra section. Page F5.

Again, from most reports because he could serve a dual role as backup DB (which it turns out he couldn't) and return man

True.

The Texans have also place high importance on right tackle (different one every year) and many other positions. That happens when you're building a team and you're not completely satisfied with what you have at that position.
Think my post actually miscasted me as "single KR" guy when I am more in favor the dual role guys. I agree Moses specifically is like Miller and Foreman, a guy who can do something for you, but every year you are looking around for either a 'better" player or at least a guy who does more than one thing.

I didn't read the single/dual thing into your post. I was just commenting on why they did what they did (because they were/are trying to improve every year and they obviously weren't satisfied with what they had). The dual threat thing is one of the reasons why the Texans picked those players (or so I've read) and not me trying to make a point one way or another.

Thumbs up

Sometime today we will know. But I donot think that JJ makes the final cut. Roster positions are at a premium.

The Texans are going to have to cut young potential or aged experience. ANd no JJ is not old, he is not one of the ones I am talking about. I am on the side of cutting aged experience in the back up positions, since the best the Texans can do this year is fight for a wild card spot. Now that is great to me but I think next year is more likely for a run deep into the playoffs and we will need those younger players. jmo

One reason for the Texans to use all the time allowed to make their cuts is if they are working on a trade. Perhaps they are trying to move a player for a draft pick, to allow them to keep JJ, or a developmental player.

I hope Thompson is wrong. A couple of weeks ago, I was resigned to Moses being cut, but after his performances, and the others' lack of performance at the position, I will be pretty surprised (and not too happy, I'm sure).

Moses started as a Chief in 2001 (practice squad only), then went to the Packers. Bounced back again to the Chiefs, and then again to the Packers. Assigned to NFL Europe (Scottish Claymores) by the Chiefs his first season, and I believe led in punt returns for NFL Europe.

Default JJ Moses

Yep he bounced back and forth from the Chiefs to the Packers. Signed and released by the Chiefs in early in 01 from what I gather.

26-Sep-01: Signed as a free agent by the Green Bay Packers.
21-Nov-01: Signed as a free agent by the Kansas City Chiefs.
13-Nov-02: Signed as a free agent by the Green Bay Packers.
30-Jan-03: Signed as a free agent by the Houston Texans.

Just checked on the web site http://www.packers.com/news/releases/2002/11/13/3/
It's the Packers website, but they've still got him in his Chiefs shirt. Truly the Packers run a class web site...

I really hope JJ stays. He has proven himself to be a capable (and, at times, exceptional) return man. Field position wins games.

# of TDs is irrelevant. YDs is what's important.

He is still standing! Didn't release him. Kept Starling also.

AT, what's confusing about that? Would you rather have a KR that has a TD or 2 with the rest of his returns never getting past the 30, or one with no TDs that always gets near the 50?



I'm not saying Moses does, just trying to find out what's important for a KR. Also, does his past guarantee that he won't ever have a TD?

He may not have got the line that said 'TDs aren't important, its YDs.' I was thinking 'what are YDS?' when I realized you meant yards. The abbreviation was OK, it just wasn't automatic, because of the capitalization.
