Default Carr and Domanick Williams Released

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/4656573.html

No picks? Come on.

and Dominick. No surprise about that.

Quote:
After weeks of trying to get a draft choice for quarterback David Carr, the Texans have decided to release the five-year veteran, making him an unrestricted free agent who can sign with any team in the league.

The Texans also are releasing running back Domanick Williams (formerly Davis), their former leading rusher who has been unable to play because of a knee injury.

An announcement is expected later today.

I'm guessing they have to pay the remainder of each player's signing bonus, unless they released them as virtual post-June-1st cuts. If that's the case, then they hold on to that cap hit until June 1st, when the hit will spread out over the next two years.

I think.

Cap is tricky. Um.

What in the world are thay thinking. DD/DW was a fore gone conclusion we knew that was more than likely going to happen. But to release Carr this early before the draft is strange s#$t even Det. got a 6th rounded for Harrington. If this is true first bad move by the FO IMO.

Both good moves. Apparently no one wants to pick up that contract on Carr.

It could be to spread the cap hit over two seasons instead of one, allowing us to actually sign our draft picks.

Blame Carr and his high price that is on his contract. His ego is so high he doesn't wan't to lose pride and face reality by not restructuring his contract because he knows he sucks.

Looks like Kastofsna was right and Rick Smith tipped his hand too early. I don't feel too bad about this. The shock from earlier this week has worn off and I accept that it is best for all parties.
