Default Re: Quinn Gray and Jordan Black released

I'm a little surprised to hear that Boyd has no PS eligibility left because I figured that may have been some of the motivation for the move.

However what I like about the move is that it is doing the players a favour by getting them released early and back onto the market. Shows the team cares about its people and wants the best for them. If they wanted to they could of kept them till the last minute and cut them at the last moment, which would of disadvantaged other teams but also the players too.

I like the fact the Texans do things the classy way whenever possible.

I think it's a good sign that Black is getting released so early. We have talent now, and players who can't hack it are gonna be gone.

I guess Alex Brink has been impressing the staff thus far.

.
He was playing against Diles, Anderson, Barber, Cochran, Zgonina, TJ, T. Johnson, Bennett, Harrison, Fletcher and Wynn. Hutchins was also on the field at the time. He started the second half and played the 3rd qtr and part of the 4th. This was week 2 of preseason. In addition to Boyd's stellar play, Fletcher also picked him off once and Thomas Johnson sacked him once.

Neither of these moves were that much of a surprise, especially Black. fwiw, I remember on All Access seeing the attendance chart in the weight room and Gray had missed the most sessions (3) at the time. I don't know if that was OTA sessions or weight room sessions, but my daugher was the one who pointed it out to me and asked "who's Gray" (because he had the most sad faces on the chart).

We all know Black sucks, that is the consensous anyway. Gray looked good at times last year, so I do not think many of us fans thought that about him.

The Kansas fans knew Black was bad before he came to Houston and nothing he has done has really changed that perception, but it is nice to know that a bad player can't make the roster anymore, especially on the OLine.

Gray has had some good games playing in the NFL so we know he has something to offer, the fact that he can't make the team either says he was a bad fit in our system (which seems to be the message) or that the other guys we have are that just plain better.

But I agree about Spencer. Looks like he may stay.
We will sign Gray in 09 and offer Sage to Vikings for a #2.

No, my crystal balls say Brink will be traded for a high first round pick. I mean if Diles can go from 7th round to possible starter in one season, a QB selected by Smith in 7th should be worth at least a one on the market. Greedy aren't I? BTW we will still have Schaub who will be a pro bowler and Sage will go to some team for a 2nd round.
