It's the NFL and speed is the name of the game. Now we got 2 or 3 real burners who will compete for the position. But I wish him good luck in the future.

JJ signed my football. One thing I won't miss though are the clipping penalties I felt he was sometimes responsible for because he reversed his field alot.

While I have always thought that the Texans could get a better return man, Moses did a tremendous job considering his lack of speed. He has great quickness and can make some spectacular moves to make tacklers miss. I wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up. Once again, the Texans show how classy they run their organization by allowing Moses the chance to shop around for a job not just before camp starts but while teams still have mini-camps going on.

Too many "fans" here put too much of an emphasis on TD's in the return game. Moses did a really good job of avoiding fumbles which are just as big a negative as a TD is a positive. Moses was also good at consistently getting some positive yardage. Unfortunately, he just didn't have the speed of an ideal return man, especially on kickoffs. Hopefully the next guy(s) will be able to avoid the mistakes while getting a few more yards in both punts and kickoffs.

I guess I'm one of the few who is surprised that JJ Moses lasted this long with the team.

The last two years the Texans didn't have anyone who was better.

Now they do.

It takes a while to build a team from the ground up.

I think if this move was made last year we all would've been going crazy. However this was the year to do it because two of the guys competing for the return job have taken it to the house several times before.

The one thing I have to say about Moses is alot of people didn't like him because he didn't make TDs but are talking good about him today after he was gone. A Pro Bowl Linebacker was released and after that, you heard many including myself talking about him being old and how his tackle totals were a product of the system. I think that says alot about Moses and the fact that he gave 110% for this organization.

But you're not alone. I was waiting for this day and it's finally come. I think it's great for people to be JJ fans and all but the days of being able to earn a spot on the Texans roster because you do one special teams related thing well are coming to a close. Seeing JJ go out the door just demonstrates that the quality of competition on this team is increasing and will continue to increase.

With seven different players competing for the kick return job, J.J. and Reggie Swinton being the only two that are not actively playing on offense or defense, I figured that J.J. would go because the Texans did not sign Reggie to cut him later. Have the competition is great, but with many good quality kick returners we really don't need all of the depth. I wish J.J. the best of luck with the team he signs with.

A quick JJ story to share. After one of the pre-season practices a few years ago, my young son (7 years at the time) and I were last in line to get autographs. My son had already decided he was going to grow up to be a NFL quarterback because he played catch with his Daddy every weekend in the back yard.

When we got to the front of the line, JJ and some young receivers were signing autographs. My son proudly told them that he was going to be a quarterback some day.

They gave the autographs but went further. They stopped, grabbed a ball and played catch with him for a few moments. Their logic was that after all, if he was going to be an NFL quarterback, he should get to play catch with REAL NFL receivers.

In the grand scheme of life, it was a small gesture. To my son, it meant the world. They encouraged him and praised how great his passes were and his technique. They were certain that if he worked hard towards his goal that he would succeed. JJ and the other receivers were fantastic. Since then my son has worked and worked. Now, a few years later, he is now playing youth football.... his position, quarterback. His confidence started that day with JJ Moses.

My son and I will be forever grateful.

JJ represented the best in what Professional Athletes should be.

He will always have two fans where ever he goes in life. The gesture won't be forgotten in this house.

Once again that little story is why I am glad the Texans do so much background on character issues.

Great story! It still makes me sick that we let him go. JJ has always been a stand up guy and the city of Houston thanks him from the bottom of our hearts and wishes him the best of luck. I was really looking forward to seeing #84 take one back to tha house this year. Good luck Bro!

I think he was a bit of a security blanket for us. We felt safe with him back there. One of the problems with an expansion team is that they make mistakes by the boatload and this was an area we didn't have to worry about to much because he was so solid handling the ball. I wish the best for JJ and hope that another team picks him up.

Haha.

Well, the guy was a better punt returner in real life than he was in Madden. Hope he does good with another team.

You never returned one with Moses in Madden? Dude, people hate playing me because they have to kick the ball out of bounds or have to onside to hold him because when he gets the ball he takes one to the house 2 out of 3 times and when he don't he brings it to the 50.

I am going to miss him on our team and on my Madden.
