Default Two More Released

So much for Grice-Mullen's potential. Too bad he was never on the field to show the coaches anything.

The Texans released safety Curome Cox and wide receiver Ryan Grice-Mullen on Friday, executing their second round of roster cuts this week.

I have to admit I'm surprised about Cox. I expected him to at least make it into camp. He worked really hard for us last year.

Grice-Mullen had several things against him:

1. His size. Kubiak's system emphasizes bigger receivers who can gain yards after the catch and also block downfield to help in the run game.

2. His college scheme. The run-and-shoot is just a little too different from the system that most NFL teams use. It is a difficult transition.

3. His injury. Getting hurt and not being able to compete at all during OTA's makes it practically impossible for an undrafted free agent to make the team, and in Grice-Mullen's case to even make it to training camp.

So am I.
I wonder does this move speak to the improvement of the Brandon brothers, Harrison and Mitchell...?

Well, I guess I'm a little surprised at both cuts. I kept hearing how fast Grice-Mullen is and figured they would at least put him on the PS to develop. As for Cox, I thought since he played OK last year he might have a chance to make the team, at least through TC. Oh well. How many more cuts are there? 4?

Can't he still be put on the P/S if he clears waivers?

Default Re: Two More Released

there are just too many safeties for cox to earn a spot. even as an above average special teamer.

mullen was hurt. that's probably one of the greatest highlights of the new regime. we've got depth now at almost every position and if you're unproven and you're hurt... you're gone. no time to lolly-gag with unproven guys. too many proven productive players that are healthy and hungry.

speaking of hungry... i need a sandwich.

You don't create the practice squad until training camp is over. And it's rare to cut a guy before training camp, not bring him back, and then put him on the PS. That's usually for guys you actually took the time to work with a li'l bit.

To add:

G-M played mostly in the slot against mostly a nickel or dime back on mostly second-third tier schools.

There were times he couldn't even get seperation.

How is he supposed to do it at this level?

I like the kid and all, but he can use time in a developmental league.

According to the Chronicle article the Texans still have 84 on their roster. The Texans website has 83 as does my own board at home. I wonder if the Chronicle is still couning Chukky Okobi. The settlement announcement was pretty quiet and may have flown under the radar. Oh well.

You mean to imply that the Chronicle may not be up to date on what the Texans are doing in the offseason? You mean the General and his two lady friends might not have all the information that is Texans even when they are the local beatwriters for the team? Why, I could never fathom that one in a million years.

I'd go use your depth chart as a reference before I'd use the Chronicle's. In the words of Stephen A. Smith "They're turrrrrible".

Well Cox was a contributor as y'all have stated, and I really wanted GM to have a chance to show if he could compete at this level, but we are stacked at WR and will prolly only carry 4-5 in the season, so I knew it was a long shot.

Ms. Bentley implied 84 in her article and I'm guessing Manful lifted that number from that article. I'm in the 83 camp along with ht.com and Ourlads. I shot Bentley an email to see if she could clarify.

Just for grins, I went to the Texans/NFL site on chron.com to see what they were showing for a Texans roster. I had never visited that page before so I was expecting the worst. I noticed it was last updated this morning so I thought to myself, wow, maybe they're keeping it up. But then my lack of faith in the chron was restored when I saw they still have Kevin Barry listed on the roster (didn't he go down in training camp last year and never come back?) plus they don't have Abbate, Gabe Long, Moffit, Nading or Marcus Richardson listed. Actually I'm surprised it was that accurate for the lazy uninspired hacks they are.
