    This may sound re-dudent but I noticed last week that this guy, #90 T. Martin looked really good. About 8 tackles and a sack, big, strong, powerful young guy. whats the skinny on him? looks like he's a sleeper that has potential. Looking for some responses? :thumbup

    I'm looking for him to get alot of playing time this season!

    The Texans like to use a 5 man rotation and he is the 6th man right now behind the three starters, Deloach and Sears. With Payne getting limited time early in the year look for him to see some snaps.

    Martin is also competing with the injured Junior Ioane for the 6th DL spot. If the Texans decide to keep 7 D-linemen (possibility with the questions about Payne), both will make the squad. Martin also saw some time at NT last year, so he has that versitility going for him.

    A 5 man rotation means 5 DL active, as part of the 45 man roster. Do you think they will keep another DL as part of the 46-53 roster?

    Also, they may want at least one DL for the practice squad, but I doubt Martin qualifies.

    Remember, the big difference between being on the 46-53 roster and practice squad is that another team can't claim you. If you release someone, there is no guaranty you can get them to your practice squad.

    Has this Gbanks sent private messages about T.Martin to anyone else other than me?
