The only way I see the Texans releasing Salaam, is if Butler wins the swing tackle spot and Salaam requests his release. I don't think the Texans would want to keep a vet who doesn't want to be here. Maybe a trade involving a late draft pick would be more likely. But, that won't happen until the preseason is over and there are no injuries to the Texans O-line.

I'm curious, is White a lock at backup Center, or does Eslinger have a chance? Has White played/practiced that much better than Eslinger? Just wondering.

Default Re: 53 man roster, guesses after 60 minutes:

QB: Schaub, Rosenfels
RB: Green, Brown, Slaton, Walker
FB: Leach, Taylor (RB/FB)
WR: AJ, KW, JJ, AD, DA
TE: OD, Dressen, Bruener (His blocking ability keeps him on the roster)
OT: Brown, Winston, Butler, Salaam
OG: Briesel, Pitts, Studdard, Weary
C: Meyers, White
KBrown, Pittman, Turk

DE: Mario, Colvin, Cochran, Weaver (should be gone but costs too much), Kalu
DT: Okam, TJ, Okoye, Maddox
LB: Demeco, Bentley, Diles, Greenwood, Adibi, Thompson
CB: Fletcher, Reeves, Bennett, Molden, Faggins
S: Demps, DBarber / Harrison (I think Harrison will get the spot), Brown, Ferguson

Faggins is released once Dunta is healthy. Salaam could be released in place of a veteran released from another team that's healthy. Weaver really should be gone, but his contract is too bloated. I have Bentley making the roster, but it could come down to him or Thompson. With Thompson's ability to play DE on passing downs it might mean Bentley will be out of a spot.

I think so. He's capable of playing both G and C and that alone puts him ahead of Eslinger, not to mention how poorly Eslinger played. He got Eslung around like a doll. If I'm not mistaken though, White didn't get any reps at C last weekend because we were so shallow at the G position. You could read more into that but I think he's pretty much a lock because of his versatility.

side note: I wouldn't be surprised if we dealt Salaam to Chicago for a late round pick. I'd be willing to bet Smith has considered it.

From everything I've heard and seen, White is much better than Eslinger. I know a lot of people liked Eslinger in college and were hoping that he'd come here and be a beast but chances for that are looking poor.

With White and Brisiel, you've got two guys who can play guard and center.

Now if Taylor can't improve on that through the next couple of games then I think yeah, he's not picking it up.

Okam I think makes the final 53 as does Frye.
i just cant see Frye, who can still play PS taking Salaams job. now if Frye had a year on the active roster under his belt id show a little more willingness to it but Salaam and Winston have been the 2 of only 3 starters on the line who have played constantly over the last 2 seasons, the only other one is Pitts. i just don't want another Spencer situation especially if you have already cut the guy who bailed us out the last time.

Default Re: 53 man roster, guesses after 60 minutes:

Fred Weary- unable to recover from surgery that needs revisited

Anthony Weaver- odd man out

Ahman Green/Chris Brown- one of these guys has to stay healthy!

Mark Brunner- great guy but moving forward does he fit ZBS as 3rd TE?

Jameel Cook- is blocking/special teams enough?
