Default Texans claim CB Jason Allen

Texans claimed CB Jason Allen off waivers from the Dolphins.

It's nice pickup for a secondary in need of a talent infusion, though Allen isn't a great bet to make an immediate impact. The Texans seem intent on letting Kareem Jackson play his way through a rocky rookie season. With the ability to also play safety, Allen will be primarily a backup and special teamer in the short term.

Pretty poorly.

Been watching the Dolphins for years, this guy isn't going to be any better than Jackson or Quin. He will beat out McCain though, or should, but that isn't saying much considering McCain is getting worked on almost every play.

FYI, the Dolphins claimed Al Harris and waived Jason Allen. Why can't we pick up Al Harris, instead of wait for a team to pick him up and take their castoff?

Al Harris is exactly what the Texans need, a veteran who has been a great player and could still be. Not a veteran who was never any good, see new Texan Jason Allen.

Because we signed Ahman Green and Rick & Gary looked bad as a result.

My understanding was that Al Harris cleared waivers and was free to sign with anyone he wanted to. No one wanted to pick up Harris's 2+Million in salary was my understanding.

Default Re: Texans claim CB Jason Allen

I'd like to welcome Jason Allen to our defense! Here's a sneak peak, Mr. Allen:



I'm fairly excited about this pick-up because we get to add another former first round draft pick into our defensive line-up! If draft positions were a fair indicator of a player's talent, we'd be unstoppable. Our arsenal of first rounders in this defense sure are abundant.

Anyways, earlier reports state that Jason Allen is constantly tested by opposing quarterbacks; he's also prone to slipping and is reportedly atrocious when it comes to zone defense due to his inability to read offenses. Tackling and man-defense are his forte. Kareem Jackson #2, anyone?

With that said, I'd like to give Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak some praise for attempting to patch-up our Swiss cheese/marshmallow defense. . . a couple weeks too late.
