    Some are reporting there is a cut to 65 on tuesday, others are saying 75. Just last night... a announcer said 'its not 65, its 75 on tuesday. Which is it?

    No, it's 75!

    Till this year, after the 3rd preseason game, cut down was to 65 with a previous cutdown to 75. The 65 cutdown has been eliminated.

    It's 75. But the NFL Europe exemptions also expire on Tuesday, whereas they expired on the final cutdown last season. I think the Texans will have to cut a dozen players, maybe more if they plan to make waiver claims.

    Call me crazy but i think Luchey might have beat out Cook for the FB spot.

    I think out of any postion on the team, CB's are going to see the most cuts.

    Bruener stays. Kalu stays. Is it just me or did Cook play much better tonight? I think the rest are in trouble. Stone may stay if we don't pick up a better DB from other teams' cuts.

    Will we cut down to exactly 75 or under 75 with the attention that we will be adding additional players from other teams?

    I agree, I think simmons stays too. Its a coin flip between Luchey and Cook, Of course, I didn't watch the game so I don't know how they blocked.

    I think they cut down to exactly 75, but the list they make will anticpate additional cuts to provide room for waiver pick ups.
