I don't know anything about him, says he was the Chargers 4th CB and he's big for the position, 6-1" 205. I hope he can help and plays better than what the article refers to.

Nothing on the transactions page at ht.com about who got cut. What's the current roster limit? Is it 65?

Default Re: Texans sign FA CB Cletis Gordon

Gordon missed 2 tackles against Arizona last week......one on STs and the other playing CB. Evidently, that may have been part of a decision to release him.

Came across this SI 2006 draft profile. Leaving out the tackling/physicality problem, I felt like I was reading a description of Reeves when we first obtained him.

Quote:
BIO: Defensive All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 41/4/1. Averaged 23.7 yards on 19 kick returns and 17.7 yards on 18 punt returns. Also lined up at receiver, totaling 9/91/1. All-Conference return specialist after his junior campaign.

POSITIVES: Athletic prospect with outstanding size/speed numbers. Adjusts to make the play, smooth in transition and displays excellent vision handling the ball. Extends or gets vertical to make a play on the ball and has soft hands. Also has a burst of speed and acceleration.

NEGATIVES: Falls asleep on defense, not quick reading receivers. eyes and slow locating the ball. Lacks an aggressive nature to his game and stays away from physical contact.

ANALYSIS: A prospect with the underlying athletic skills to compete at the next level, Gordon is first a return specialist who could also be used as a fifth receiver or seventh defensive back.

Charger FAns are happy to see him go.

& I found this article

Quote:
The team's decision makers said they wanted Gordon to be able to have a chance to sign elsewhere. But multiple sources said the team was displeased with his lack of physicality and effort on special teams.

Gordon missed a tackle on the opening kickoff last Saturday in Arizona, helping the Cardinals' LaRod Stephens-Howling to an 89-yard return.
Sounds like another player full of potential.

That is how it is for every team, including the Steelers during preseason.

Meh, there will be more to choose from when the rosters are cut down, especially the last cut.

We should be hovering like vultures over teams like the Ravens, Steelers and other teams that are stacked with DB talent. Possibly even a DT out there somewhere.

Reminds me of a story.....

We've got a family member who got confused regarding a part of the female anatomy and called it a cletis. Not as a tongue in cheek thing, but very serious.
