I just heard Capers and got the impression we let Glenn do this at his request. He said he would accommodate him if he was uncomfortable.....apparently he is. I think some of us here made a ton of assumptions.

I would've thought Glenn would be confident he would beat out Buchanon. I have little doubt in my mind that Glenn and DRob would start, with Buchanon coming in for nickel and dime packages. Maybe this has something to do with us letting Sharper and Foreman go. These vets develop respect for one another, and Glenn may feel like the Texans aren't handling the situation with their vets very well. Hopefully he changes his mind, I'd hate to lose him. I was really looking forward to seeing our three starting caliber CB's face off against the Colts.

I knew that Glenn requested a trade, but I don't see him willing to compete for a job. I still think he forces their hand. I hope I am wrong. I would love to have Robinson, Glenn, Buchanon, and Faggins this season.

We should have got something for Sharper and we didn't and I have a feeling no one bites on Glenn, especially with all of the CB's that went in the draft, if we get anything for him, it won't be much...No one is gonna give much for a 33 year old CB who carries a huge cap hit, just my

Really, enlighten us on all these plays he got beat on and that show he lost a step?--thanks for helping those of us who don't watch the games closely. By the way did Bailey lose a step last year? Ya think just maybe the new rule emphasis had something to do with the way CB's performed?

We are not currently under any kind of salary cap pressure for the upcoming year. The team is not improved by Aaron leaving, unless he does not want to be here. I hope he chooses to stay.

Despite all the quick presumptions that he is being booted off of the team, it increasingly appears that this is not the case, and that it is Aaron's choice to stay or go. However, if he chooses to stay, he will have to compete for his spot at CB.

I would expect that if he does choose to stay, he and Robinson go into camp as the starting CB's, and Buchanon goes in at second string. However, Buchanon will have a real opportunity to take the starting spot from Aaron, and may even be expected to do that. With the problems that Buchanon had last year, it does not seem like it would be a bad idea for him to begin the year in a backup role, and work himself into a starters position as he establishes himself on the team.

A.G is still an awesome corner back, and can really help our young defense this year, i have a weird feeling he'll be back for the 05 season but he might be sharing time with PB and L. Sanders.

I guess very few of you caught what happened friday when AG didn't show up to workouts upset that they had Buchannon being a Texan.

AG was mad that he didnt fit the hard worker mentality the texans are, and flat out doesnt want him here.

So in essence, that is your ticket to ride

I was hoping things could be ironed out between them, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

don't know if glenn knew PB prior to them becoming teamates, but if this is his first experience with him, then it doesn't speak to highly of glenn to not give him a chance. maybe he's not the consumate team player he's been perceived as...or just getting old and grumpy in all fairness i hope something gets worked out so the inferred locker room tension will disolve before the sunday's start getring chalked up in the W/L column...

This smells more and more like a locker room implosion. First Sharper, then Glenn, and we draft TJ to compete with Walker. There has to be more to this.

I can understand why Glenn would be upset. He's seen some of the guys he's played with for the past few years be let go in favor of younger and faster guys. Then he learns that the Texans picked up a younger and faster CB in PB. Maybe he saw it as a message to him that he was next to go, or maybe he's a little more sensitive after having some of his teamates being let go. Either way I can understand his frustration. His pride has been injured, and man will do drastic things in order to preserve it. I still hope there is a solution to this problem where Glenn can remain a Texan, but it's appearing less likely.

I have a feeling Glenn won't be a Texan for much longer, I mean he probably already figured this would be his last season and now they are bringing in these younger faster CB's. He is probably feeling like the FO is trying to push him out. Not only that but if everything we have read is true, I don't want him around if he is going to have an attitude like he has had about everything, he can pack his bags now.

Can we really blame the FO though, I mean 2/3 of our starting D line are players we got from the expansion draft (Walker and Payne), 1/2 of our secondary are guys from the expansion draft (Coleman and Glenn) these guys weren't exactly spring chickens when we got them, and that was three years ago. Sharper was also acquired through the expansion draft. It is time to start building a defense from the draft and free agency by adding speed and youth (DRob, Buchanon, Babin, Earl, Smith, and Greenwood). If Glenn is going to get upset about us trying to improve our TEAM, then that's fine, don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya Aaron, happy trails.

Whose fault is that? It was the Texans who came out & said that Glenn was OK with the trade & was looking forward to competing. That you need as many cover corners as you can get when matched up with WR corps like the Colts.

It was the Texans who signed Greenwood & summarily gave Sharper & Foreman their walking papers. Is it wrong to draw a parallel here? According to Casserly, the Texans are keeping the Glenn situation "in house". When there's a lack of information, fans will make assumptions.

As I recall, Foreman was expected to be cut by many on this board throughout the 2004 season.

Sharper, however, was expected to be retained, and correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the Texans were in the progress of working with Sharper to renegotiate his contract when the melt-down in their relationship occurred. Sharper was encouraged to seek a trade with other teams if he considered the situation to be unsatisfactory and unworkable. He tried, but was not able to do so. At that point, the Texans reached agreement with Sharper to allow for his unconditional release. This was not something the Texans were contractually empowered to do on a unilateral basis. Sharper had to agree to this. He was apparantly so upset, that he thought this was his best option, even though his recent testing of other teams interests had to have provided him and his agent information regarding his worth to other teams in the NFL.

Now, Aaron Glenn has also become upset with his situation. The Texans have permitted him to seek a trade, just as they did with Sharper. The common theme that I see here is that the Texans are not allowing themselves to be moved or manipulated by the emotional swings of their players. They are not trying to punish these guys, only setting some boundaries and expectations that appear quite reasonable, and are entirely within their rights. If this is perceived by these players as an imposition, the team is giving them the opportunity to pursue alternatives that are mutually beneficial. The Texans are not under any requirement to do this. As a matter of fact, I am not familiar with any other instances of players on other teams being invited to pursue trades if they are unhappy. Maybe I just have not been following the sporting news closely enough.

I believe that by these actions, the Texans are currently establishing policies and practices that will reverbrate throughout the league. Players and agents will know what to expect, because the precedents have been established. I wonder, what are other NFL GM's thinking and saying about these types of personnel related policies and practices being implemented by the Texans?

Glenn is one of our originals. He has given it his all for three years, and has done a good job. I hope he works through this and stays on for at least another year. We all know its stated that its a Not For Long league. We fans should not turn on players that have done all that is asked of them. If he stays we will all cheer for him and if he decides to leave we should wish him well.......I know I will.
