Wait a minute!

I thought there were a bunch of people here that had the inside scoop on what the team is doing. J/K

None of us has a clue what they are doing or planning to do. Imagine that.

Was wondering why the board was running so slow. I guess we will be looking at an OT early in the draft now.

This I agree with. You need cap space? That's about 5 mil right there isn't it?

This could mean we really are trying to free money up for Mario. This is a good sign. If a couple of more cuts happen soon something big is coming.

How moronic... Has he missed a single start? Reliability and leadership should count for something. Who is his backup??

Brown/ W.Smith/ Myers/ Briesel/ Butler

With a couple of draft picks thrown in.

Winston was very overrated. He seemed to care about his future in broadcasting more than improving his game. In addition to almost getting Schaub killed a couple of games.

The Texans should be able to sign Manning, or re-sign MW.

Surprise move for sure, but not shocking. Winston's a good right tackle but he was going to make too much money. What concerns me though that this system demands that your o-line work as a unit. They all have to be on the same page and they all have to know their roles. Inserting a new guy may disrupt that "flow" so I think the Texans have to careful about who they plug in. People will say Schaub should be concerned with this move, but if I'm Arian Foster I'm worried too about who's going to get downfield and make the block on the second level. At this point I think they'll promote someone already with the team to RT simply because that player should be familiar with the scheme. I don't see us drafting a RT high, but won't be surprised if we go after another veteran player like we did with Wade Smith a couple of years ago.

So we release Winston who was a solid starter for us... why haven't we released Jacoby yet?

Well if take that line of thinking - good player but not worth what he is about to be paid - to it's next step, can DeMeco be very far behind??

How much are you hated when you draw heat after a player that doesnt even play at your position gets the boot?

I almost feel sorry for Jones then I remember that he has a big bag of money he can cry into every night.

Certainly not, if we're going strictly by the money. And that would include Jacoby Jones too. If they don't release Jacoby it could also indicate that WR is not going to be a high priority in the draft.
