As the Friday beginning of the new league year creeps closer, teams are creating more and more salary-cap room.

Just days after cutting RB Ahman Green and LB Morlon Greenwood, the Texans will release DE Anthony Weaver on Tuesday. His $6.2 million base salary will come off the Texans’ salary cap, but they still must deal with $5.4 million in acceleration on his contract — a total savings of $800,000.

Once Weaver is released, it will not be long before he finds another job. Jets coach Rex Ryan coached Weaver in Baltimore and could sign him for New York, or the Ravens always could try to bring him back.
Per the above link....

Sure, sign him in New York. We play the Jets at home this year. Run Slaton to his side, guaranteed first down every time. Not like he's going to make a tackle or anything.
What a waste. I remember he was touted as one of the best defensive players to hit FA in 2006, only to become a bust here in Houston. Just another product of the system in Baltimore.

While it will help our cap, we are not very deep at this position at all.

Not sure if this is a smart move.

It barely helps our cap. He just needed to be gone, he's not contributing.
This almost guarantees we will be either going hard at a DE in FA, or drafting DE with the 15 pick.

I think it's fine. He's WAY too expensive to be depth.

I think our depth is good there. I like Cochran and Bulman to do anything that Weaver did. I think we will be adding 2 more DEs in FA/draft and those guys will often be sliding inside to spell TJ, Okoye, and Robinson.

Absolutely. We can do better (and cheaper) in free agency and the draft. This was a no-brainer.

Maybe the holdup was that they thought they could talk some 3-4 team into giving them a 7th rounder. Nobody's that dumb, but I guess it was worth a try. He had zero trade value.

Yes he was the starter but I don't see anything that Weaver brought to the table that Cochran can't do better. Ditto with Bulman. Theres almost no chance we actually go into the season with those two guys at the top of the depth chart but we lose nothing from a production standpoint getting rid of Weaver now.

Default Re: Weaver to be cut soon - rotoworld/NFL Network

he sure did have a pretty smile though.

I think this is also an issue of trimming the productivity fat. cap room aside, he wasn't productive enough.

if Ephram gets cut then Dale's dream off season is complete!

Well if we do something in the draft or FA its a different story but if not then I still do not like our depth.

Default Re: Weaver to be cut soon - rotoworld/NFL Network

Now that he's gone, we have no other end that is a viable option to be a starter opposite of Mario. That uncertainty lead me to believe that they are definitely going to draft a DE in the first round. They may even have to "reach" again, like they did last year with Brown, if the top 4-3 ends are already gone(Orakpo, Brown).

I wouldn't mind trading back into the twenties again and taking Robert Ayers, who is a rising prospect like Duane was like year. Maybe even Larry English, who weighed in the 270s just recently.

Is it just me or does anyone else feel like the Texans are really going to pursue some big names in FA? With Sage's impending trade to the Vikings and cutting Green, Greenwood, and Weaver we have some holes to fill. Not every need will be addressed through the draft obviously so I'm guessing there are some guys the Texans front office are looking to sign.

Either that or they are looking to bundle a package to move up in the draft. Someone already posted that on here, so it's not my idea, but with this happening so soon after the combine they might have found someone they liked a lot. I really would like to see us get someone who is not a project and can make an impact day 1.

Default Re: Weaver to be cut soon - rotoworld/NFL Network

I don't think this move is an indication of anything other than getting rid of a player who isn't worth his contract. I don't think it means we're working on a draft trade package, or we're about to sign a big FA.

It's just normal prep for free agency. They need to sign Eugene Wilson (hopefully before free agency starts), and they might even be planning ahead for if/when things cool down with Dunta and they revisit the long-term deal.

No big deal. Just business as usual for this time of year.

Cutting Weaver is sending a message that even if you have a high cap #, you're not gonna stay on the roster if you dont contribute noticeably more than the guys behind you making the league minimum.

Shows the team is willing to admit they were wrong, unlike the last regime we had in here...
