    Here’s some more DE news out of Reliant. It doesn’t appear that the Houston Chronicle caught on to this, but the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Packers unrestricted free agent DE Mike Montgomery visited with the Texans on Monday.

    Is there anyone actually working at the Chronicle? Does it have to be a joke?

    What? We have Texas Sports Writer of the Year Richard Justice on staff. What more could you want...? He is both impartial and professional in everything he does. Such a true Houston sports fan. He really likes the Texans...

    Big, able-bodied end, who is also a Texan boy. Graduated from A&M so also some incentive there for Kubes to sign him. Don't have much game tape on him except from the GB game this year, so when I get time I'm gonna have to check that out.. Can't hurt having more depth/competition on the line though, right?

    LOL! :user:

    I justed looked him up on scouts inc. He had 2.5 sacks and about 60 tackles. He's identical in size to A. Smith: 6'3" 275 lbs. and sounds like a very similar player- pretty strong, can play inside in a one gap... gives good effort... has a pretty good set of moves... lacks ideal speed/burst but is still developing.

    I didn't hear him but I'm pretty sure AWare said,

    "Spread them out!!! you gotta spread them out!!!!" or something to that affect. I'm not sure what that had to do with Mike Montgomery but Andre Ware is the kind of genius you just don't question , you only hope to one day understand.

    He said that Montgomery is no longer needed in Green Bay because there switching to the 3-4 . He said a little birdy told him that he was talking to the Texans .

    I dunno but maybe Chron NFL "Beat Writer" John McClain is busy directing and producing a new movie starring Sean Penn & Kate Winslet based upon his own screenplay ?

    Or that it is expected that we will sign someone from Green Bay at least once a year. :specnatz:

    I'm guessing he was talking about our options at DE opposite Mario.

    Wouldn't a dumb clock (dumb meaning broken right?) be right 730 times a year?
