Does anyone else find it odd that we apparently signed a NT from somebody's practice squad?

Kevin Curtis was waived from the practice squad, so I guess this is the vacancy they will be filling with this guy?

I really hope this guy has a big upside. We really need some unexpected guys to step-up when its there turn in the rotation. I doubt this guy is going to be able to just sit with Sage and hang out for a few games.

run stuffer....we are weak vs the run in short yardage/goal line...makes sense to me. Especially since Kubiak said he was looking for more interior linemen defensively.

Anyone signed off a practice squad has to go on the active roster for 3 games as Lucky said. We can waive someone off our roster and put him (if he passes waivers) on our practice squad and then swap later.

I don't think you can just swap. After spending 3 games on our active roster, Johnson would then have to be waived before signing to our practice squad - giving Dallas the chance to re-sign him away from us. Any time a player is released from the active roster, he must clear waivers.

That's why I said if he passes waivers--unclear but meant to apply to anyone going to the practice squad. Yes anyone going to the practice squad can only do so after passing thru waivers.

Thank-you, infantrycak for clarifying. The waivers/free agency/practice squad system is a little complex and they have some odd rules!

I would guess Malone. It would seem odd that they would demote Ellison to the ps after just claiming him, but I guess that could happen too. I doubt if they are planning to keep 5 DTs on the 53 (considering two of their ends rotate inside on third downs, etc)

It's real frustrating that there is typically such a lag of info on the Texans website concerning roster moves. You also wonder why other media have not been given the info to report. Obviously, in order to make a move like Johnson, there has to be a simultaneous countermove. Obviously, all of this is occuring in Cyberspace.........or maybe the Twilight Zone..........I'm trying to contact Rod Serling at this very moment.........will be back to you in just..................

The Houston Texans have signed NT Thomas Johnson from the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad.


Signed off the practice squad. Doesn't this mean he has to be placed on our 53 man roster?
