Default No Interest In Walker Or Wells?

Just sitting here thinking about all the changes in our Texans roster.

Several of the released Texan players have found new homes.

M Brown, J Gaffney, D Ragone, T Walker, M Norris to name a few.

Why not G Walker or J Wells. I think that maybe Walker might be a mid-season pickup by someone, but Wells supposedly plays well on special teams and was a serviceable backup running back, or so I thought.

Also our previous second string QB T Banks has not been picked up either.

Kinda strange that multiple teams put in a claim for our third string QB when he was released but no interest has been shown in our second stringer.

Is this further proof of the ineptness of the previous coaching regime?

Seems like a really large turnover, with a lot of released players being picked up.

Good luck to them all.....except for when they return to play against us..

I am not surprised that those would be the three that are currently not on a roster at the moment and all for different reasons. Walker will find a team after June 1st. Banks is awful and Wells is a dime a dozen type player.

I am not sure what your question or statement has to do with Wells.

Gary Walker was getting some interest from Jax and Miami back in April but there won't be many suitors for a guy with his penchant for injury - missed 19 games over the last three seasons. I wouldn't be surprised if he retired, unless he can snooker another million out of Capers and Saban.

Here's the full list of homeless (those who were on the team last season through present):

Tony Banks
Gary Walker
Jerry DeLoach
Zeke Moreno
Chris Doering
Todd Washington
Jonathan Wells
Frank Chamberlin

And those with new homes:

Marcus Coleman - Dallas
Junior Ioane - NYG
Jason Bell - NYG
Tyson Walter - Wash
Corey Bradford - Det
Moran Norris - SF
Milford Brown - AZ
JAbar Gaffney - Phil
Dave Ragone - Cincy
Tony Hollings - Chi
Marcellus Rivers - Oak

Default why not Wells

sorry for not being more clear, I just felt like Wells should have been brought back. I understand the zone blocking scheme and how fullbacks have to be quck like rbs, but right now Q Hill, an undrafted rookie, is the 2nd fullback. I agree cutting a guy early is good for the player but why not keep him until you have real options?

Even if the Saints trade does through. Where do the Texans make room for Bennit? Would you have Cook and the other four, can any of them play FB?

RBs like Wells are a dime a dozen that is why he is out of work. He isn't powerful for his size and he sure isn't fast by NFL RB standards.

Usually, new coaches turn over the rosters.

I'm surprised Gaffney was signed

It's gonna be very interesting to see how many of these are still on the team after training camp.

I think Gary Walker had himself a few teams interested in him a few weeks ago...hopefully June 1st reignites the interest in him.

I liked Rivers. Better than Bruener at TE

Default Rivers

Actaully it looks like Rivers will try to make it as a tackle. The reall question is Halterman or Joppru. Peutzer, Daniels, and Bruener are locks. If they carry 4TEs, another blocking TE would make sense. Peutzier and Daniels are very weak blockers. If that is the case then the edge should go to Halterman. We will see.

Rivers is a Raider.

I think you mean Murphy, who has very little chance of making the 53 as a tackle, and probably less as a TE considering the switch..

Some of our TE's will probably play Fullback, I remember hearing something awhile back, when we drafted Daniels. I think it was a quote from Kubiak from one of the news stories, if memory serves.

Good grief! This just shows the rather strange manner folks continually want to blame a regime for one bad season, just because its second string QB wasn't picked up. Seems to me that perhaps you should start thinking about the fact that Dave Ragone was the team's second string QB and was gobbled up when released. Seems to me this shows the ineptitude of the current regime.
