    Obviously, this is in response to Spencer having to be put on the PUP list.

    Let's seeeee.... who has the lead? ex-Broncos or ex-Packers
    j/k :D

    Does anyone know if Winston is getting any reps at LT?

    I am hoping that these x's can atleast add quality depth (given the lack of it we have had).

    I don't know the payscale they are getting compared to their potential playing time

    He's started 8 games in 5 years. Sounds like camp fodder.

    I hope not. A TE who will probably be cut before the end of camp* is hardly a solution to the weak LT position. Especially since it is absolutely no surprise Spencer isn't ready to go.



    *Okay, okay. He might make the roster for no apparent on-field reason a la Brad Bedell.

    You'll have to explain that a bit further. We'll keep three TEs, Bruener, Daniel, and whoever wins out between Putzier, Presser, & Ben Steele. That's a given. Are you saying we'll only keep two TEs?

    Now if this new guy bumps Brandon Frye off the squad I'll be a bit disappointed. I think Frye has lots up upside, just like Studdard.

    Agreed. Maybe this guy helps them run a certain package that the Texans did not currently have the players for.

    Just a reference to the "blocking tight end" part.

    I rather like him at RT. I'd rather have a veteran at LT, even if its Salaam.

    Barry has the pure physical talent to be a beast, but is injury prone, which is why he only started a few games. He could be a good back up that can play everything but Center.

    I guess that's what I didn't understand. The poster that started this thread covered that scenario...

    Plus Bruener's forte' is blocking. So with Bruener at one TE and this guy (assuming he makes the squad - that's not a given) at the other TE I think short ydg formations are covered.
