There is ZERO chance Slaton gets put on the practice squad. The guy was picked in the 3rd round. Someone would come in and sign him to a contract in a heartbeat.

I think Walker is gone. And if Taylor can report to camp healthy, then i think Green will be cut as well. So that would leave us with the depth chart at

1. Brown
2. Slaton
3. Taylor


maybe flip 2 and 3 around.

Totally agree. Injuries will send these guys off the field, and now the Texans have a full stable of runners to substitute for each other. Plus, I see the Texans using multiple backs anyway.

I still think that if things had worked out ideally, Green would have been running for quarters 1-3 of the first 3/4th of the games. Dayne would be running in the fourth quarter, or once the lead got long, and would start taking over later in the season. The way I see it, the Texans now have the backs to implement this kind of system. Slaton was an excellent pick.

:elle: we drafted slaton to play NOW, and he's going to do that. walker is the odd man out, and it's not even CLOSE.

You guys do know that other teams can sign players off your practice squad right? Putting Slaton on the practice squad would be like giftwrapping him for another team because there is no doubt in my mind someone would scoop him up.

I see these three being the final three as well, but I think Slaton might be third in the early going and maybe flipping with Taylor before long.

no chance slaton starts on the practice squad. not a 3rd round pick.
ahman will get cut hopefully. i think sherman had a lot to do with getting him here and hes at A&M now. if not, taylor is gone.
we wont cut brown. brown is good.
brown and slaton are sure things and i think walker might be as well. hes cheap and pretty good.

Default Re: Odd Man out @ RB

Admittedly I dont understand the salary cap hit for sutting Green. Is it better to cut him before June 1st, which of course means no camp to see how his health is, or can we wait until cut down time. It sure would be nice if we could bring all of the guys to camp and let them compete for the job. I want to see of Taylor is really worth all the time Kubiak and Smith have spent defending him.

I think Ahman Green is the odd man out as well. He's old. He was a horrible signing. He's been injured. I just don't see him making the team.

I think Chris Brown will be our starter. Chris Taylor and Darius Walker will battle in training camp for the #2 spot and Slaton will be 3rd on the depth chart.

Signing Moulds, Green, all those zillion year vets who are going to be in wheelchairs by the time we make the playoffs, then cutting them, just pisses me off.

DO NOT sign veteran players who aren't going to be here in three years when we're making a playoff run. It's worthless. Sign and play young kids. Even if we lose more games it just means higher draft positions, and we're getting a look at somebody who might make the team long-term and really help us.

Christ...

By that logic does that mean even if we do sign a bad player we should just suck it up instead of cutting or losses.

I was thinking it would be interesting if they could line up Slaton together with Taylor in a two-back set.

Slaton's in; thats a no-brainer. I'd forgotten that they were interested in Taylor lining up @ FB. For that reason, he may have a chance. But I think in camp, no matter what, it'll be fish-or-cut-bait for him. Can HE stay healthy? I'm going to be interested in what they do with Green/Brown. Maybe the first one to get hurt is out, the other is in, putting one in the backfield with Taylor & Slaton. I have a feeling that Slaton will be starting by mid-season, if not sooner, anyway.

I think the one kid gets designated as FB. We keep 3 RBs and 2 FBs. Cook is gone and Walker, if he has PS time left, goes there. Otherwise he is toast, until Green or Brown are out injured. Then he comes back. Green might be cut as a June 1 guy, but I doubt it. Kubes is very loyal to vets and will give him his chance to play healthy. However long that might be.

If u look at denver when kubes was there, they always carried 5 rbs and like 2 fbs. They'll have green,brown,taylor,leach,and the other fb active, walker inactive and slaton on practice. Just because he was drafted in the 3rd, he has to earn his pt. slaton is cool, but we're not talking about the next payton or anything.

Well if Shanny and Smith have been telling the truth to McClain accoring to his blog today Shanny says Green is healthy and they are excited about seeing him in camp. McClain says(grain of salt) Texans will carry four since all have a history of injury being Green, Brown, Taylor and Slayton making Walker the odd man out!

Why are people wanting to move one of the RB to FB when we will have 3 going into camp?

Jon Abbate
Jameel Cook
Vonta Leach

Now granted I do not think we will carry 3 on the roster during the regular season or the post-season.
