Damn!! I just knew JJ was going to break the next return for a TD. The defender always had one extra step than JJ.

It was pretty much inevitable...After bringing in Swinton, Buchanon, and drafting Mathis, it didn't look good for Moses...Supposedly Starling and Hollings are in the running for kick and punt return duties as well...

Yes, but a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. The one thing about JJ was you knew you were going to retain the possession. That can be very important when the game is on the line.

Yeah, I was a big JJ Moses advocate but man, the competition on the team for that spot is too much to just be a punt returner. Each one of the other guys will service as either a starter or back up at another position.

Oh well, looks like I have to update my Madden.

Now it looks like the roster spot is open for Mathis or Swinton to grab the #5.

Buchannon alone makes Moses expendable but with all of the competition it will be exciting to see who gets to return the rock.

I was ready for us to get some homerun hitters. The downside is that we may actually fumble some returns now.

I have found some net-confirmation.

Texans | Moses Released - from www.KFFL.com
Wed, 18 May 2005 13:05:37 -0700

The Associated Press reports the Houston Texans have released KR/WR J.J. Moses. He was Houston's lead return man on punts and kickoffs over the past two years.

hopefully nobody picks him up for awhile just incase our new returners start having fumbling problems. JJ was really surehanded and it helped make up for his speed. i'm thinking some team will sign him, bring him into camp, and he'll compete somewhere for the return job. there's got to be a team out there that needs a guy who can hold on to the ball. anybody know of any teams in the need for a return man?

Trust me we will. My thing is this, with the guys we have here will we run more for touchdowns than possesions we lose putting our defense in vulnerable situations. Remember the experiment last season with AG and Starling I believe it was. Also, what happens when the person that's back on punt returns is a starter somewhere else (say PB) and gets hurt doing that? Not only are you screwed in your field position, but you just lost one of your better players. I liked JJ and even though he didn't have break a way speed to take it to the house, you automatically knew on Kick off's you were getting the ball at the 30 to 33 yard line. With that said, I wish him well and hope that Swinton, Mathis, Hollings, PB or whomever else we have back there will shine. Hopefully it won't Bite us in the a@# later.

I'm sure he was released now so he could catch on with another team while there are open roster spots across the league.

Here is the espn piece...

Definitely a fan favorite and will be truly missed! JJ LOVED the fans, always gave us some type of recognition, not so with so many of the other players. His enthusiasm was infectious! It's amazing what a little nod, a finger pointed in your direction, an occassional high five, a little jig danced in the end zone, or just some type of excitement shown by a player, can do to energize the fans! Hopefully, whoever gets the position will be as fan friendly as JJ.
