Pass!
We just got rid of 1 WR that could not catch, why do we need another?

It seems that his consistent history of being lazy and unmotivated hasn’t stopped at least some team at one time or another from giving him a serious look. You have to wonder if you take him, are you just buying into an older version of Jacoby Jones.........that is, reaching for a bottle of Tums anytime a crucial pass comes his way.

I typically NEVER agree with Texecutioner but in this case I do...except the part about TO.

I think they are damn near one in the same. Big bodied. Board hands. Have not been able to capatalize on the last few teams they've been on.

No thanks, move on down the road broseph...

Default Re: WR Roy Williams to get a tryout with Texans

I think this is an EXCELLENT idea.

Wait.

Hear me out.

We bring Roy Williams in. Then during training camp, we put Roy Williams and AJ side by side. We have them run the same routes and get thrown basically the same ball. AJ will run the right route, perfectly, and catch the ball. Roy Williams will run a lazy route and drop the ball.

So then we show all our rooks and 1st year WRs this contrast to make the point that one of these is the right way to go and the other is the NOT right way to go.

Then we cut Roy Williams.

Lesson learned.

I dont think Roy will make it. If they keep on another vet, I would think Bryant since he played with us last year.

Default Re: WR Roy Williams to get a tryout with Texans

How much did Posey struggle? Is this due diligence or panic mode? Honestly, it can't hurt to take a look at Roy. He has a NFL body. If you don't throw a lot of money at him and he is in shape, it may not be a bad thing at all. He's been a disaster as Tex put it because he hasn't lived up to the big contract or the draft status. He won't have to worry about that here.

Third-round draft pick DeVier Posey and fourth-round pick Keshawn Martin have potential but are unproven and Posey struggled in minicamp.

Default Re: WR Roy Williams to get a tryout with Texans

Being a Cowboy fan and seeing him and then moving here to Chicago and seeing him...not a great plan, even if its a backup plan. Roy is a guy who comes in, has great quotes, looks great in practice and is seemingly well liked and then the games begin and you ask..."where is Roy Williams." That guy got so much air time up here and never materialized in the season.

Default Re: WR Roy Williams to get a tryout with Texans

Right now, I'd easily choose Bryant Johnson over Williams.

Bryant Johnson = Better hands, knows our system and a much better pro

Roy Williams = Non of the above

That said, I'd assume there'd be more to pick from once cuts begin if we truly need a WR.

I'll be in the minority here and say I think the competition is closer than most might think. Bryant has been here and knows the team and system, Roy has done more and has had the better career.

He hasn't lived up to his draft status, but he's been the better player.

Roy Williams will also take away some the defense's attention from AJ. He may drop the ball, but he's likely still athletic enough that they have to make sure he doesn't break free on the chance he actually makes the catch.

I don't think there is any competition between the two, as Bryant Johnson isn't on the roster.

IF he's actually being fairly evaluated in camp and has to truly earn a spot on the roster, then I have no problem with them bringing him in. So the question is: Do you have faith that Kubiak is going to fairly evaluate the guy, or do you think he's going to favor him somehow?

I have no reason to think that Kubiak has any reason to favor roy Williams. He is not getting bunches of money and his flaws are well documented. The rookies need some prove they are better than some dude who has done something in the NFL and Williams fits that bill.

Overall, people are not going "like' whatever veterean spare the Texans eventually bring in. Everyone out there has major warts or they would not be jobless heading into camp.

Well, I've heard on the radio that both will be given tryouts to compete for who is signed.

I'm fully aware that neither player is on the roster.
