Default Quinn Gray and Jordan Black released

According to the Chronic:

Quote:
The Texans placed quarterback Quinn Gray and offensive tackle Jordan Black on waivers today.

Before the Texans had their last OTA (organized team activities), Gray and Black were given their pink slips. Black came to Houston as an unrestricted free agent from Kansas City. He never fit in with what the Texans were doing up front and ended the season as the fourth tackle.

Gray, who played so well for Jacksonville in a loss to the Texans at Reliant Stadium last season, had signed a one-year deal as the third quarterback behind Matt Schaub and Sage Rosenfels.

Gray didn't adjust well to the Texans system so they released him.
Veteran Shane Boyd and rookie Alex Brink are the other quarterbacks on the roster.
Gray is a bit surprising. Look for more cuts before training camp starts to get down to the 80 man roster.

Gray was surprising but Black not so much. I'm sure they gave him a vanilla playbook just in case he was resigned by Jax or another team since he was a newbie? This gives Boyd and Brink a shot at sticking around.

Not really suprised about Gray...

I figured that if Brink showed any kind of potential Gray would be gone...

Cutting him this early gives him time to find another club..

Black's release may bode well for Charles Spencer. The Texans currently have 6 OTs on the roster, and I would think they would carry that many into camp.

Brown
Winston
Salaam
Butler
Frye
Spencer

Scott Jackson has played OT in camp and preseason. But I would think he would stay at Guard, since they are carrying 6 on the roster, at the moment. Unless the Texans have another FA OT they're eyeing, I'd say Spencer gets a reprieve going into camp.

Edit: This was my 5K post? I should have planned this better.

Damn. Wasn't expected Quinn Gray to be released. I guess it it will be Schaub/Sage/Brink now.

But I agree about Spencer. Looks like he may stay.

I also remember that Shane Boyd is pretty high on Kubiak's list too. Bringing in Gray may have sped up the maturation of Boyd.

I agree. I think he was brought here as insurance in case of a Sage trade. There have been comments about how good Boyd and Brink have looked during camp. The only comment I've heard about Gray is that he was over-weight.

Default Re: Quinn Gray and Jordan Black released

Gray came to the Texans with the expectation that he would become the backup QB after a Sage trade. That never happened, and I could see how he might have become disappointed. The 3rd QB is almost always a young guy who won't complain about being the scout team QB. And the Texans could still revert to going with 2 QBs on the roster. I thought Sage could still be traded in preseason, if someone's QB went down with an injury. Not going to happen, now.

It's going to be very telling what they do with the roster this year. I think it's almost a given that Brink ends up on the PS. Boyd has no PS eligibility left, so he's either "all-in" or "all-out". Kubes has historically kept only two QB's on the 53 man roster, the only exception that I know of being the end of last year when Schaub was still on the roster, but unable to play because of the shoulder.

From a sheer ability standpoint, Schaub and Rosenfels clearly put the team in the best postion they've ever been in, and would indicate carrying two QB's makes more sense than ever. If we keep three, it will clearly be because of the injury concern regarding Schaub. On the other hand, if they're happy with Brink's progress, they may feel like they can still carry two and either re-sign Boyd or promote Brink if circumstances warrant.

Apples and Oranges. Not saying it couldn't happen, but it wouldn't be the same type of thing at all.

Default Re: Quinn Gray and Jordan Black released

My first reaction is that Shane Boyd probably looks good....The little I saw of him impressed me...can't wait to see him in the preseason. The writing on the wall should have been staring Jordan Black in the face. It probably helps him to get an early release.

Se la vi -

I'm thinking there was a handshake deal in place the whole time. After the draft came and went, and Sage was still a Texan, Quinn was given his release to make another squad before camp. But like I said, thats just what makes sense to me...

probably the best athlete left in the draft that could push someone for a job is kinda what I'm thinkin'. We don't have anyone special back there.
