    Why Vaughn H. is no longer a Texan? Was he released?

    That's too bad because I thought he played well.

    I agree, I thought he was a good back up and somewhat interchangeable between safety and cornerback.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think he got injured and is out for the season.

    Hutchins signed a 4 year contract for $9M....a little beyond the range that Rick Smith had in mind for a nickle back / backup safety.

    He injured his ankle the first day of training camp.

    Echemandu
    Boulware
    .

    Babin

    Babin is with the Seahawks. He had 5 tackles and 1 sack and a fumble recovery. All happened later in the second half, so he may be fighting for a roster spot.

    Dom Capers, now a secondary coach with the Patriots, immediately petitioned Belichick to trade a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounder for Babin. Capers thought swapping picks with Seattle in the 5th round was just too steep...

    John McClain mentioned the other day that it was Vic Fangio that really pushed for Babin. For all his faults as a head coach, hiring Fangio as his defensive coordinator and later bringing in Joe Pendry may have been Capers biggest mistakes.

    I gotta believe Echemandu is just "camp fodder" at this point with Fargas, McFadden, and Bush on the roster.

    He may have been pushing for Babin but the front office is still to blame for the pick.

    Von Hutchins is on IR and is out for the year. He hurt his foot on the first day of training camp. It was a similar injury to what Glenn Earl suffered last season.

    That probably would have our luck if we still had him.
