    So are we going to have a ton of people in denial of this time thinking he wants to be a mommy again?

    Other than that, now we have another starter out of the lineup on a injury riddled team. Great stuff!!

    Not really worried about it. He's a shell of the player he once was. To be honest I'm more excited about an expanded role for Zach Cunningham. PFF had him as our highest graded player against the Jags. He's a ballhawk.

    Wow I'm so shocked. Would have never guessed he would ever do PEDs.

    Give him a little credit. He was a leader on the field defensively getting players lined up. Not that it showed last game but...

    How does this affect his pay and our cap? Is that treated like a savings to us? Is he still paid?

    Who wouldn't need to use drugs to recover from his legs getting blown out in consecutive years by dirty ass play?

    Doesn't matter. Cushing's career was, unfortunately, done a long time ago.

    Go on and retire now. Thank you for being the heart and soul all those years.

    9.5 million (9.3 in cap hit this year) in dead cap space. How could his contract been so lucrative (and detrimental to the Texans) after 2 knee surgeries and one (now two) PED suspensions? This is a guy who has made the pro bowl once in his entire career and that was his rookie season. Every has been mediocre FA with injury and PED history should be banging on Rick Smith's door to be let in.

    I am sure this isn't Rick Smith's fault. Someone told him to give the contract to Cushing.

    I am a fan of Cushing. Hate to see him go out like this.

    I have written one good thing about Cushing in years. I was a fan early on but the "over-worked syndrome" as his excuse for getting busted for PED's before chipped away at that. As his production declined I thought he should have been packing years ago.

    PED suspension I feel is a betrayal of the team. He betrayed the team and the man paying him.
