Default TE Courtney Anderson released

Per the Examiner...

During the course of finalizing contracts with several undrafted free agents, the Texans released veteran tight end Courtney Anderson.

Some of you may ask "who?"

Anderson's stay with the Texans was a brief one. He was signed to a future contract in January as a hedge against the vacancy created by the retirement of Mark Bruener.

But Anderson's release wasn't a surprise considering the Texans drafted two tight ends last weekend.

The Texans now have four tight ends on the roster; Owen Daniels, Joel Dreessen, and rookie draft picks Anthony Hill and James Casey.

Casey's situation is well documented and the plan is to use him at several positons. Hill is the only 'blocking tight end' on the roster.

As of Saturday evening, the Texans had finalized contracts with seven of the eleven undrafted free agents whose signings were previously reported.

The four remaining were Jason Watkins, Mike Jones, Brandon Walker and Doug Dedrick. I would expect that most, if not all of those remaining will get done soon (or may already be done) unless someone got a better deal with another team.

The Texans have also signed defenseive tackle Jake Visser, from Ferris State who was not included on the orignal 'list of eleven.'

Visser, a 2006 second-team All-Northwest Region pick by Hansen's Football Gazette, racked up a squad-high 16.0 tackles for a loss of 74 yards last year, which included a conference-leading 10.5 pass sacks for minus 62 yards. His season's sacks total tied for the sixth-highest ever total among the Bulldogs' all-time single-season leaders. He also finished 30th among last season's NCAA Division II statistical leaders in solo tackles (4.7 avg.) and 35th in tackles for loss (1.5 avg.).

In 23 career contests, Visser has compiled 184 tackles (95 solos) with three fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles, and three pass deflections. He also has 24 tackles for a loss of 103 yards. Visser is presently 16th on Ferris State's all-time pass sacks leaders list with 14.5 total for a negative 84 yards. He also received 2006 first-team All-Northwest Region accolades by Daktronics, Inc.

Isn't he a little scrawny to be playing DT on the pro level??? Do they possibly have him in mind for another position?
