I figure you don't franchise a guy to the tune of nearly $10Mil/yr and then sit him.

Good point.
the franchise "offer" is just an offer until he decides to sign...


So, whaddaya think, is Fred Bennett the #2 or #1 CB on the team right now?
and is Kubes sending a not-so-subtle msg to D-Rob?

You do, if you are given no choice and he doesn't show for the first few games.

I think thats Kubiak talk for Dunta isn't at this practice, he's not under contract etc. so, "officially" everybody bumps up one spot and that makes Reeves 1 and Bennett 2. I don't think he was calling out Dunta as was suggested in a recent BRB post and I don't think it means anything but extra reps for Bennett at this extremely early stage. I do think he was calling out Travis Johnson however. Most of what he said I felt was fairly watered down nothing.

This is very interesting to me. I hope Fred battles it out for number 2 when Dunta comes back.

I can't help but wonder about the #2 slot at Cb this year. If Reeves, who will be with the team, through OTAs and TC unquestionably, works his way into the #1 slot. I think it's very possible given what I have heard about his dedication to getting better this offseason and new DB coach Gibbs. I can't help but wonder that Bennett will have the same situation to get better. Depending on the status of Dunta I can't help but wonder if he might be battling for the #2 slot as opposed to #1.

I guess I am wondering out loud what happens if our franchise tagged Cb is getting outplayed by two other guys?

whats wrong with you guys Brooke is sweet.....

the rest is all fluff, it's OTA's don't read too much into the comings & goings of players. Travis is & always been an enigma. It's gotten old & the Texans should cut him loose after June 1st so he can catch on with another team thus minimizing cap damage (F/A next year anyway) no future here for a player who has a long way to go after four years after being selected 1st rd. (another regime).

On 1560 yesterday Sean and John said that this team is 100 times faster, more athletic and basically more talented than the team 2 years ago. They said Cushing has alot of burst from 0 to impact and that the LBs with he and DeMeco should be great. Harris was commenting on alot of it.

If you happen to watch the video from HT.com, it's quite apparent that Kubiak's pissed at TJ. He did the same crap last year with something supposedly wrong with his crotch. Do we even know what it is this year? I mean, wtf does "issues" mean?

Look, I actually think TJ is better than most give him credit for around here, but he seems like he's a sloth when it comes to practice. That's not a good thing.

This may, or may not, have anything to do with the current situation with TJ, and I'm too lazy to goggle for the details, but TJ has a medical condition which requires constant medication to keep under control. This has been known since his draft year. As long as he takes his medication, this problem supposedly should not effect his football. If I remember correctly, at one point in his collegiate career, he did get off his regimen of medication and his playing did suffer. Like I said, this may not have anything to do with his current problem, it's just a bit of input I haven't seen mentioned in a number of years.

Yeah, but he's a lights out special teamer who can play SAM LB and rush from DE. He is very versatile and I think could latch on. June maybe, but he such a good nickle type LB'er I don't know. We have hard cuts to make this year.

Yep...

I like TJ and I think that he will play much better this year...But none of that matters if you are not practicing and getting acclimated with the new system...

I don't think that June will make the team unless he has a lights out summer/early fall.

I haven't heard anything about him being a great special teams player so that means he'd have to be playing a lot in regular defensive sets in order to have value for us.

Adibi and June are kind of the same player, except I think Adibi is better against the run.

If June is playing a lot, that means Adibi will not be. You will be hard pressed finding a situation for both of those guys to be on the field together.

If Adibi gets the start at WLB, maybe June sticks around as his back-up. But if Diles wins that spot, I think Adibi is his back-up leaving June without a niche.

Basically, I don't think June will be on our opening day 53 unless he's lights out. I don't think being "solid" or "ok" will cut it ofr him because of his lack of functionality...He doesn't have a lot of dimensions to his game...JMO.
