Default Roster moves

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/7262705.html

Quote:
Defensive tackle Frank Okam was placed on waivers. Replacing him is defensive tackle Damione Lewis, a 6-2, 301-pound native of Sulphur Springs who was released by the Patriots in the preseason. He played for the Panthers the previous four seasons.

The Texans also signed linebacker Stanford Keglar, who played two seasons for the Titans.

Defensive tackle Tim Jamison, who was with the Texans last season and was with the team in preseason, was signed to the practice squad.
Thoughts?

Do we still have that open roster spot? Released Salaam and Nixon, but only got back brown IIRC?

I thought there was some renewed hope for Okams career here ? Guess I thought wrong.
Now we got no size anywhere in DTs ? Apparently that's how they like it ?

See this is what I am talking about, the Texans sign yet another no name, no help player, who will be released next year or have play time and get burned in the game all day.

Like Bernard Pollard and Will Demps and Deljuan Robinson?

What the hell are you talking about? First, Smith has been pretty amazing at getting guys off the street that have come in here and contributed. Secondly, Keglar, like Nixon before him, is primarily a special teams signing.

Well, if it's a special team signing it seems to me that we have good depth and no problems on ST. I do think, however, that we need a huge amount of help at linebacker, safety or cornerback. It's just my opinion maybe I am seeing something wrong in our defense? As for Pollard that was a great move picking him up, but Will Demps and Deljuan Robinson were average at best. We need someone to help this defense out, a consistent player, there's gotta be a free agent out there to help..

Okam can go be a lawyer or a fry cook or whatever it was that he wanted to be instead of a football player now. Best thing for everybody involved. It's time the Texans focused on drafting some really good defensive linem...... oh, never mind.

Maybe we should bust out one of those drafts where we pick only DT's for 7 rounds? We can't pick them out of a crowd so maybe we should just go get a crowd and see who sticks.

When youve failed at both drafting and free agency, it starts to look more and more like its the scheme

At least they are making some moves, if one of these players can step up and get some pressure it will be a good thing.

Not going to get too excited. Reading some things from Sheppard and he has 'steal' potential. Played in the SEC and was injured before the combine. Also seems to be a hard worker, he wants to be on the football field more than Okam so that's an improvement already.

Got any names yourself, or are you just creating this ideal free agent market where if you try real hard, you'll find a player who just so happens to not have a team, yet can improve your defense.

Fact is, at this point in the season, outside of a few outliers and lucky breaks, players who have potential to help a team improve are, well, already on a team.
