    I've heard that tomorrow a player and his bloated contract will be cut from the Texans roster. However, I was asked to withhold the name. Just wanted to give everybody a heads up and give us something to speculate about.

    I think it will be on the offensive side of the ball.

    Wade is obvious selection. I could see Payne gone too since we have Weaver and Smith to start.

    A lineman is on his way out, also there are a couple of guys that are on the bubble. OSO stick to your principles though.

    I agree that OSO is probably talking about Wade but also think that Bruener could be an "on the bubble" guy.

    Nothing against him really, more of a numbers deal than anything else...he is winding his career down, we are now TE heavy for a change apparently, being a dual threat is not his stength and he is one of the few guys that we would save big cap money on (approx. $1M) with a move.

    And, although the odds are against it IMO, there is some chance that TJ might be "on the bubble" also, not for cap reasons but to continue to demonstrate that draft position and contract issues do not trump performance (or lack thereof) with the new regime. I hope he gets the message and has a good-great camp so that this is no longer a possibility.

    GO TEXANS!!! :redtowel:

    The "bloated contract" part of the statement gives it away... it has to be Carr... :whoohoo:





    But maybe Baire, Wade, Payne or Greenwood. My money is on Wade.

    Buchanon is playing for just $800k--that hardly qualifies as a bloated contract.

    Bruener isn't it IMO as his contract is not bloated either ($1 mil cap hit) and he is not just a blocking TE but one of the best blocking TE's in the NFL.

    Weigart, Wong, Wade, Salaam, Pane, Laverne, Luchey(Yes I'm looking at the roster),Breuner, Cowart, Greenwood, Hape, Kalu....I think we will have a better idea of how this regime thinks AFTER some cuts are made. We simply don't know where they think we're deep and and/or who may be better off somewhere else... I forgot McKinney and probably several others...we also don't now, with any certainty, who performed better than whom in the coaches eyes. It has certainly seemed that this regime has found 4talent where we thought we had none(OL, QB, DB). I am very interested in who this player will be.

    Wong will be cut. If he is finally goiong to come of the injured list they can clear his contract.

    This staff just signed McKinney to a 4 year extension--doubt he is on the block.

    yes I did and I've seen AC at the YMCA working out while he was in town to visit Wong and his sister. Nice guy but little cocky.

    my guesses are: Todd Wade, Seth Payne & Morlon Greenwood.

    I think there may be more released in the next few weeks too...
