Actually I don't think they have. It would be different had Jerome been a consistant WR in the offense.

IMO the writting has been on the all year this was a make or break season for Jerome. It'd be different if he'd put his shoulder to the grind wheel all year and got injured. The injury again this year was a big blow but I think after the Pitbulls incident espcially it being a touchy subject after Vick sealed it. This was just another hit for re-inforcement on his character. Down the road someone might bite I really don't care though.

AD's negotiations will be more leveraged by other teams true interest in his service...not by any stretch what has happened with Jerome.

Yup.

She declined to press charges probably just for that reason. (Though I will say that the truth in domestic abuse situations is hard to figure out sometimes).

Oh and 6'1? I don't think so.

Who wants to sign a teammate-hitting, motorcycle-crashing, pitbull-threatening, prego-girlfriend-choking, lives-on-the-IR returner who played on a team where other players were also able to have spectacular returns?

The incident allegedly happened Friday, but he wasn't arrested until Sunday....
That's what I was thinking. Remember there is two sides to a story and some women out there are not goodie two shoes either. Don't get me wrong, if he did do this, terrible to be you Jerome but I will wait to see how this plays out.

She declined to press charges. When that happens, the state can bring charges based on the evidence they have. Due to the red marks and the fact that she is pregnant, they decided to bring charges. Deciding to make that decision can take some time.

You are right to say that you never know what the situation is going to be with domestic violence charges. The truth is hard to figure out sometimes.

The problem that Mathis has in that he doesn't have a large store of good will like other members of the team. If a Fred Weary or Chester Pitts says something didn't happen the way it sounds in police reports, they are going to get a bigger benefit of the doubt than someone who doesn't have much of a history of being responsible.

After a pregnant mother's choking, Mathis better pray that she gives birth to a healthy baby without mental deficiency or physical deformities............otherwise, his problems become much worse than simply not returning to the Texans.

True. I hope he didn't do this. Just for the sake of the women and the baby.

Hopefully his agent doesnt try to hold us hostage now in contract negotiations due to his added importance now.
Can we hold that loser on the team until the last possible second and then cut him on the last day of cuts for the 53 man roster? I would love to screw a scumbag like that over.

And I was hoping we'd get a 4th if another team signed him. arggh! Even if the dude turns out innocent, he sure is making it hard for anyone to want him around.

I seem to recall he had some "attitude" issues in college too. Guess his early success went to his head.

This is a reminder of why building a team w/o "character issues" may take longer, but has less downside risk.

what's really bad for him, this draft class is loaded with smurf wide recievers.
er, fast smurf WRs. Down side for the organazation is they probabaly can't get two six packs and a hamsandwich for him now. I recall after the pro bowl year a certain poster suggesting we trade the guy then at the peak of his value. And I also recall a bunch of folks posting how crazy I was.

Well here ya go.

IF, and big emphasis on IF this is true, then im sad for that situation. I hope he gets whatever help he needs....in prison. Sad and pathetic. Abuse of women is just wrong...for the same reasons i don't want kobe bryant in a rockets uniform, i now don't want Jerome Mathis in a texans uniform. I'd like to hear some more evidence before i convict him in the court of public opinion however
