Nice way to make room to sign some players that can make a more positive contribution to the Texans or renew the contracts of some good players already on the roster.

Default Texans Rosters moves

With Wilson cut and Pollard a free agent the Texans should have 2 new starting safeties next season.

2 safeties have become available today Bob Sanders IND, O.J. Atogwe Rams.

The St. Louis Rams have released safety O.J. Atogwe, a league source said Friday.

Atogwe knew this was a distinct possibility, given the nature of his contract. He had an $8 million roster bonus due Feb. 21, which in essence forced a decision from the Rams, who have used their franchise tag on Atogwe in the past and re-signed him as a free agent last year.

Atogwe now is free to negotiate and sign with any team.

Atogwe, a six-year veteran, started 15 games in 2010 and finished with 73 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and three interceptions.

Thank you, Eugene Wilson, for your hard work and I wish you the best in the future as you bring your Faggins act to another team to blow a game against the Jets for them.

How's that for covering all the bases?

Default Re: Eugene Wilson, Andre Davis, 3 others released

Eugene Wilson out. Bernard Pollard very likely gone for good. I've said it time and again that two new starting safeties were the number one priority for the Texans, and this essentially guarantees we'll get that.

Along with more details emerging about what players will be moved where, this is certainly a step in the right direction, especially since GP is giving props.

As for Eugene Wilson, maybe the guy is better than we know. Not saying he should've stayed, but being coached by Frank Bush is not going to do wonders for your career. Best of luck to Eugene, wherever he goes (so long as it's not against the Texans).

I would see who is out there right now before the current CBA runs out.

I'd like to keep Pollard. I would hate to see what would happen to our run defense if he weren't there after the first 3 games of the 09-10 season...

Via Rotoworld
"Impending free agent SS Bernard Pollard is less than optimistic that he'll be back with the Texans in 2011.

Pressed for his "gut feel" on getting a new deal done in Houston, Pollard replied, "You don't want to know that." While he's been strong in run support, Pollard was one of the prime culprit's in Houston's league-worst pass defense in 2010. The team won't overpay to keep him. Jan 27, 8:17 PM"

Atogwe. Hmm...

I'm not sure what to think of him, honestly. While he would be an upgrade from Eugene Wilson, how much bang would we get for our buck? Atogwe hasn't exactly been a feared man in the NFL in three years. Sure, he plays for the lowly Rams, but his only noteworthy games lately seem to be against teams with questionable offenses. He had three picks last year. Sure, one was against Phillip Rivers, but the other two were against Matt Moore and Derek Anderson.

Give him a look, but don't give him anything near the $8 million he was due in St. Louis. The great thing about Atogwe is that he is able to sign whether or not a new CBA is in place. If I were the Texans, I'd go into the draft and see what happens. If nothing can be had in the draft and Atogwe is still there after the fact, his market value will have likely dropped to a more realistic contract.

Atogwe is one of the best safeties in the NFL. Somebody is going to snatch him up, he isn't going to be available for very long.
