    Is it just me, or does anyone else think this is kind of surprizing? Why wouldn't they keep him around for 'ahem' leadership?:cool:

    He's had some injuries, and been a little outspoken.

    I'd LOVE for him to come to Houston. Now that would make me feel alot better about the upcoming season.

    No doubt. I wonder what it'd take to get him. I suspect alot more than what we have to spend.:wild:

    Is that leadership worth a $3.5 million salary? I'm surprised it took this long to release Darius, after his play and injuries the past 2 seasons.

    Daruis is strictly an in the box SS at this point of his career. At best. A bad fit for the Texans.

    He'd be better than the two practice squad hacks he have back there. Might as well take a run at him.

    Let's snatch him up OUICKLY b/c even with some injuries here & there he's still better than earl or brown.

    LOL.... He was fast, but not a speed demon. He really wasnt a great threat to go the distance, he was just sure-handed and never really made any mistakes that caused bad field position.

    Anyway, in talking about Darius, I thought it was him from the Jags that hit Moses late one time.. But then again, that could have been any number of Jags players...

    I agree that Darius wouldn't be a good fit for the Texans. If anything we'd have three SS's with one nearing the end of his career.

    I would've much rather seen Darius' former teammate Deon Grant in a Texans uniform this season, but I believe Seattle snatched him up during FA.

    Jimmy Redmond laid the cheap shot on JJ.

    No thank you to Darius. I don't think he's the kind of safety we need at this point...

    Darius was the one who gave the shalaylee on Ferguson coming across the middle. It was a questionable forearm shot that knocked Ferguson out cold.

    But speaking of safety's....

    Is it out of the realm of possibilities tha C.C, in only his second year at FS, could show growth and get better ? It's not like he doesn't have the physical tools...Seems to be a good kid that takes coaching well...He's fast enough...he's physical enough....He's got the size

    What if all he needed was to become more comfortable because he had never played the position before ? Maybe he just needed to get the mental part and technique down ?

    Not suggesting C.C is the answer, but I do think he is a better player than Earl...

    i agree 100%... i have him down for our most improved/ surprising player this year.. he seems to have a good rep with the coaches and other players (iirc demeco even singled him out as one of the players who are helping the D improve further this year).. still not sure if hes our long term fs but could turn into a quality starter
