I didn't know Dhani Jones was a punter too? I always liked the "Bow Tie Guy".




Ohh.....you said Donnie Jones.

Good deal. Minimal risk, could beat out Hartman in camp, and it doesn't effect our compensatory pick status!

We have James Casey, a.k.a Thor.

Now we have punter nicknamed Thunder Foot.

We're on the verge of needing to transform Reliant into a League of Justice headquarters.

Right, Jones won't make enough to be a qualifying free agent. And they should just cut Hartmann. He'll have to serve a suspension to begin the season, anyway.

I'm in agreement.

Would the Texans be unable, legally, to cut a player who is set to serve a suspension? I mean...that's the first thing I think of due to our overly litigious society.

Little do people know, the Texans don't intend for him to do the punting. They intend to use him as Schaub's stunt double, if Schaub returns.

This is a major revelation. I think we all need another beer to comprehend this.

I am absolutely thrilled at this. Special teams should NEVER lose a team a game. Field position is arguably the most crucial thing in any given game. Always top 2 or 3 issue. Turnovers another.

ProFootballFocus's punter rankings for 2011:

T12 Donnie Jones

27 Brett Hartmann

31 Brad Maynard
32 Matt Turk

Jones was 6th in 2010 and 7th in 2009.

He led the league in attempts last year.

On his drop in production last year, Jones said, "They're looking for a way, I mean, we're trying to win games. They wanted every ball punted out of bounds. They basically didn't want a punt return to cost us another game. That's totally understandable. It's just a difficult task every time you get in there to punt the ball out of bounds, and still get a good yardage out of it."
