    Apologies if it was posted. I didn't see it on the front page.

    Texans' five cuts saved the team $9.7 million in projected 2011 salary. Andre' Davis ($4.7M) and Eugene Wilson ($3.56M). Nice.

    Wilson and Davis were obvious cuts to me.

    I wanted to see more of Greenhouse. Maybe they figured he wouldn't fit well in the 3-4 or we had enough better ILBs?

    Bing is a guy most of us like because of his potential. Does he still have PS eligibility? Wish he would have worked out. He was always a free agent acquisition by me on Madden. ;)

    I think it would be a lot more reasonable if fans thanked Wilson for his hard work and wished him the best in the future. Its not his fault that he isn't a world beating safety. No need to take it out on him, its the GMs fault for not finding better talent.

    Well, well, well.....

    Somebody's got some stones to cut a guy who played safety most of 2010, especially since this level of action is typically a move reserved for just before the reg season. I don't remember the last time a starter was unceremoniously cut this early in the year.

    I bet it's made the other secondary guys a little nervous, too.

    So it's safe to say this is Wade Phillip's first big move: To dump Eugene Wilson and signal that whoever plays free safety is going to have to be a lot better than EW? Does Troy Nolan fit the bill, or will Wade Phillips go after someone in free agency or the draft? Hmmm.....

    Not too shabby.

    Maybe he does not fit the 3-4 defense.

    I hope he signs with a division rival and plays exactly the same way. Hey the Colts just cut Bob Sanders, Eugene in a Indy uniform would be nice

    He's saying Eugene Wilson sucked whether it be a 4-3, 3-4, 5-2, 46 or any other scheme fathomable. I think :D

    Really, does it matter what the system is? He didn't exactly shine in the 4-3 either.
