    Hopefully, because of his history with the Texans, they are not going to bring him in strictly with the intention of using him as a "camp body." That would be somewhat cruel. I hope he's in here because they sincerely see at least some potential for him on the team.

    Chester Pitts is on the PUP in Seattle?

    DAMN RON DAYNE!

    I think we should start using that as a running gag for any bad turn of events whether Dayne was involved or not. Since it won't go away lets just use it.

    "Yao Ming broke his foot again! DAMN RON DAYNE!" for instance.

    We could even do a double tap "Charlton Heston" style when something was really bad. "DAMN RON DAYNE, DAMN HIM TO HELL!"

    Big Nasty for LG?

    Doubt he has adequate lateral movement for a tackle. Place the big guy at guard and let's see what he has.

    It would be a great comeback story if he were to become a player for us after all that he's been through.

    This would be awesome if it leads to him making the team and eventually playing some for us.

    Wouldn't that be awesome?

    I'm a little surprised they called him and not vice versa. Anyhow, best of luck to CS.

    I hope the guy is healthy enough to make the team. We have no depth at OT, and he can play both guards spots also IMO. I have to give the man credit, most people would have pack it in by now, he has been fighting to get back into the league and onto the field. He did play last season in the new league, so they must have some tape on the guy from last year.

    But sadly I have a feeling, being that this so late into camp, they are just looking to see if he can be a candidate for a in season injury replacement call.

    The man has a violent punch and the injury should not have an impact on that.

    Hope I am wrong, cause I want this to have a happy ending for Spencer.

    I'm pulling for the big fella. I want to see him make it back.

    Me too. It's probably a long shot but regardless I wish him well.

    I watched Spencer's team in the UFL last year. From what I remember he played the second half of the first game I saw and garbage time in any others he got into. He couldn't crack the starting line-up there; I doubt he makes the team here.

    Houston, again.
    Based on what I have read on the main site. It sounds like Rick is checking options. Also tried out Salaam. Looks like they are more than a little concerned about depth and perhaps starters. Personally, I would really like it if "Big Nasty" were able to make it back with us. Even if it was only as a backup player.

    I agree that is exactly what it looks like. If someone gets hurt, they need options, guys they can call if someone goes down.
