I think if anyone needs to be released it is Green. If his knee is a chronic issues then he doesn't need to be here. Cutting two guys in the first couple years into their deals could be problematic to the cap. Of the the two i would release Green and keep Weaver.
Actually we save money against the cap if we cut Weaver after May 1st. That is why I have started this tangent. Weaver is redundant, and his salary could be better spent elsewhere.

otisbean, your right I missed the part about passing downs. That is how I had envisioned Weaver being used last year on passing downs. and for the most part it was early in the season. But Weaver is not a pass rusher even from the inside, he had 1 sack total last year, and Maddox had how many? (2) Also teams just ran draws on us when we went small for passing plays. You need to get the 4 best every town players you can get on the field so the offense cannot exploit your weaknesses.

I wouldn't argue against any of that. But as of right now, he's overpaid. And the only position he can play should be manned by Mario Williams, who is the Texans best LDE.
I know Mario would replace Weaver at LDE. What I meant was who would replace Mario at RDE after he moves to LDE.

I expect Anthony Weaver to improve as the season continues really helping the run defense & pass rush as he gets closer to 100% in football shape. thats my opinion, grey, black or white

And please let him stand up. It seems to be night and day as to how much faster off the ball he is standing.

from the 1st half (Titans game today) Mario has moved to the left side & been more productive, just sacked Vince Young & the announcers agree with y'all that he fits better there.

so while Weaver looks healthier & moving around better (saw him drop into TE coverage) naturally Mario is an upgrade, therefore a game time precedent has been made- Mario Williams has found his position (LDE). This make's Weaver expendable & now I must confess I too was in the wrong

What about Terrel Suggs from the Baltimore Ravens at RDE. He will become a free agent after the season ends, is 25 years old and can play either 3-4 OLB or a 4-3 RDE. If they could make it work I definitely think that he would be a good fit for the Texans.
