I feel like the Texans have players with significant injuries that they let rehab and get extremely close, then release.

Why keep them so long if we are just going to release them prior to them being back in football shape?
Could it be to give the player every chance to come back?

Unfortunate episode with a prospect that had promise. Brown should get a bump in confidence.

It's sad fro both the Texans and Spencer, and I think this could be the end of his playing days as well.

This is too bad - he looked like he was our long-term answer at LT, and I'd been hoping we would at least salvage something... Like others, I thought they would have at least let him come to TC this year, and see how well he really had recovered (or not). It seems strange to string him along this long, and then let him go now, but I guess they saw all they needed to in the OTAs.

I'm also kind of surprised about Abbate. I didn't really expect him to make the team, but I thought they'd give him another shot in TC this year.

On the good side, I guess this means they have higher hopes for some of the others (that I had already given up on).

The demise of NFL Europe, which gave those who participated roster exemptions, combined with the NFL's hard line on 80 man roster limits have restricted teams from carrying players who aren't physically ready by training camp. To accomplish what's needed in camp, teams require live bodies. It's difficult to keep a player on the roster that can't be on the field during 2-a-days.

I think during last training camp, the Texans had 7 or 8 NFLE exemptions. Had they had similar numbers this year, they might have been able to hold on to Spencer a bit longer. Then again, the Texans may have come to believe Spencer won't get back to where he was and wouldn't be a good fit with what they are now attempting to do on the o-line. Regardless, Spencer is gone. And I see this 80 man roster limit causing problems throughout the league.

If there is anything good from this, it's that when you start letting go decent players before TC your depth must be improving.

Spencer was going to be a beast. You could just see it. It's a crying shame that's for sure.

I'm not saying that it will happen, but it is not unheard of (not necessarily Spencer) that we may see some of those released along the way of cuts to make it back on our roster sometime in the future.

I'm actually kind of glad this happened. I mean, I feel bad for Spencer personally and wish him the best. But, some fans have been hanging on to the deluded notion that Spencer was the end-all-be-all, franchise LT for us on the basis of one game. It had gotten to the point where he was held in such high regard it was almost comical.

Anyways, this is probably what was best for the Texans I wish Charles Spencer the best.

I think the hiring of Alex Gibbs was the death nail for Spencer on this team. He fit Sherman's scheme much more.

According to the team a few when he was drafted he had the feet to do the job, and might have been able to succeed in Gibbs system, but not being 100% and most likely not having the same foot speed, means time to part ways.

I can see him still making it on somebodies team that uses a power blocking scheme. He is still a strong man and will be able with proper technique to handle most blocking situations.

Good luck Charles and thank you for always giving us your best.

This sucks. The guy had the tools and the personality to be a great LT and a fan favorite for a team that needed both when we drafted him. I hope he continues to rehab and makes it back in some capacity (hopefully with the Texans). I see why we cut him, I just hope he catches a break and finds his way back into the NFL.
