I don't get why every time there's a name out there available, people always think we need to "kick the tires". Do you people even watch football? I'd rather have one of the 90 roster spots than this guy.
No I never watch football at all. Its the sport where you swing a bat right?

If you asked Dre anything, more times than not, he'll say yes unless he is Finnegan. If Coach Lewis don't want him, we should stay away.

This.

Some people are just plain crazy or hating. If he can't do it, he won't make it past OTAs. We all know Kubiak don't suffer fools.

If the man is truly interested in making a comeback & Smithiak talks to him, figure out where his head is at, then gives him a chance, what can we lose? His ceiling isn't as high as a young rookie's..... say Devier Posey (who's going to be out for some time anyway), but his floor may not be as low either.

If he's in shape right now... that tells us how serious he is about being a productive member of an NFL team. If he makes it through training camp, then he's still got some game. If he makes it through the preseason we should expect to see "better than Walter" type numbers. & I think that's what we want right?

If this guy has something to prove, I say we take a flyer & give him a chance.



& yes, if it were T.O. I'd say the same thing.

What does he know? Is he some kind of scout or something?

He doesn't even post on this message board.

So let me just ask this...

Why would it be a bad idea to give Chad Johnson a really low offer and come in as a camp body and have to prove himself to our team? What's the worse that can happen? He not ever play, like Jeff Maehl who keeps taking up a roster spot? Or could he come in as the 3rd receiver and actually make a contribution?

I would rather see none of Chad, TO, or Moss. they are old guys with names people know who may not even be average players at the moment. give me some "who the hell is he" guy who can continue to improve versus old guys trying to get an extra payday or two.

If we can get him cheap, why not? And if doesn't work out, just cut him. At least he was good at one time and never know until you try him out.

  • Chad's last good year was 2009. 2009!
  • In 2011 with Tom Brady and the freaking Patriots he managed 15 catches, bring in only 48% of balls thrown his way. But you expect he'll do better here with Matt Schaub?
  • He's 35 years old and slow and a historically poor route runner.
  • He runs his mouth, chases the media, jumps in front of cameras, and brings negative attention to his team and acrimony in the locker room. He flaps his gums but can't back it up.
  • Add to that every rep he gets he takes one away from one of the young guys -- and there aren't a lot of reps for those kids to make their mark.
  • And he beats up women.

Geez. I don't get the repeated fascination will worn out, self-absorbed ex-WRs.

If they can't play, they don't make it out of Training camp, simple as that.

He can't play anymore so why let him in camp in the first place. He'll never dawn a Texans jersey. Thank goodness.

Pass on him, even the Vets min. is overpaying.

I'd rather have Texans go after Julian Edelman who can also play CB in certain packages.

Brandon Lloyd would be another possibility but I think he would be out of our price range.
