Typically when a guy gets cut before the season starts, the signing bonus is in the bank but the base salary and in-season roster bonuses and incentives are forfeited. There are some cases where there's guaranteed base salary in the first two years of player contracts and that would have to be paid if the player is cut - and is also a dead money consideration on the cap as long as there's still a cap.

They structured Ahman Green's roster bonus in a unique way such that it's earned week to week - up to 500k this season - but only if he's game active (on the 45 man gameday roster).

Fred Weary and Mike Bell are behind the power curve as far as conditioning goes. It really showed with Bell today. He pulled up lame trying to keep up with our guys who are in shape.

He got two years with a 800k signing bonus and a base this year just above minimum for his tenure (700k). If he can't stay on the field - boom outta here - move on and they'll get someone else to replace him.

AG is the one who needs to put the yards where his money is this year. RB is obviously still a work in progress on this team and with other holes gradually getting filled, and the age/injury history of AG and CB, I would expect a new feature back in the fold next season whether it be through the draft or FA. I think Slaton's niche will be 3rd downs and other situational deals.
I hope this prophecy works out like it did when the Texans drafted DD with the same vision for DD's role: 3rd downs, special teams, etc.

For some reason, I think Steve is going to blow up like DD did. He's in the perfect spot to do it (Gibbs, best O-line we've had, competent QBs, and ailing RBs that he ought to be able to surge ahead of in the depth chart).

Slaton, Walker, and Taylor are fine by me. The other three? Meh.

I hate to say this out loud -- or at least type it where people can see it -- but I agree with you about Slaton. I'm half expecting this guy to totally surprise everyone and become a feature back.

I can't wait to see him on the field.

A positive point was brought out in the Chronicle this morning:

Quote:
Johnson's unfortunate hitch in his stride notwithstanding, the Texans are off to a promising start. uibiak points out that he brought 89 players in last summer but had only 69 of them left on the field for the second Saturday practice. This year, 74 of 79 (Dunta Robinson, recovering from a major knee injury, is the 80th Texan) were full practice-worthy after nine days.

Default Re: the injury list begins

a few updates on injury situations:

from ht.com:

Ephram Salaam - knee dtd
Quote:
His knee has been bothering him since he woke up this morning, bothering him a lot. So were getting that looked at right now.
Fred Weary - leg dtd
Quote:
We do have results back on Fred. It would be hard for me to explain, really... It has to do with the screw placements that were placed in his leg when he had the surgery that are bothering him, but I know hes not close.
Scott Jackson - i can't remember dtd

Kubiak expressed some pretty decent concern over depth of the OLine. Signs suggest they may look to bring someone else in:
Quote:
I dont know. Him and Scott (Jackson), its kind of the same thing. We lost both of them and we thought we were looking at a short period of time for getting them back. Were holding on, so to speak, trying to wait for both of them to get back healthy and now that process is getting rather lengthy. Our problems have been compounded a little bit up front. Its just something we got to deal with and work through. Its taking a lot of our time right now, (General Manager) Rick (Smith) and my time, as we move forward here in camp.
Antuan Molden - hamstring? been rested and should play Sat.

that's all i've got. feel free to correct me.

Default Re: the injury list begins

I am beginning to have some serious concerns with what is being revealed on Fred Weary's condition. After the type of injury he sustained with apparent plate and screw reduction/stabilization, as many as 1/3 of patients can have significant and many times debilitating postoperative pain. Many of these cases are felt related to the hardware. If screws have loosened in the bone and the hardware is not entirely secure...........could be best case scenario. However, for those that opt to have their hardware removed in the typical patient without any definitive cause being determined, only about 50% seem to obtain any significant improvement. In a football player, these are obviously more of a concern than for the average "couch potato."

BTW, here is the LINK to the comments on Weary and others.

I may be talking out of my ass here, but did Weary not work out during training camp? Did I read it somewhere, or has he been away since the surgery?

He was doing quite a bit a the beginning of TC. He was actually pushing Brisiel for the starting spot until this happened.

IMO, Kubiak's tone during post practice interviews would lead me to believe that it doesn't look too good Weary this season.

Thanks, I'm not being a complete ***** then

Depending on what they think are the chances of him ever getting ready again, they'll IR him, or release him. I'm hoping IR.
