    now that we know that moulds, payne and weigert have been cut what kind of cap hit does this do to the team and how much room under the cap will the texans now have?

    Let's get the final body count before going into that kind of detail.

    The Texans will "officially" make an announcement around 3ish so we won't have to wait too long.

    i am wondering how much cap space will be freed up, is this the start of an off season that will begin the turn around ? i have faith that the decisions that are being made are the first of many that will get this team on track

    wow, I can't even imagine... Nate Clements and then drafting Landry at #8? That would be an unstoppable defense.

    We had 10 to 13 million in cap space before the cuts of Payne, Weigert, Moulds, and probably DW. How much cap space are we going to have? By the way, I am loving the moves the FO is making right now!:redtowel:

    hpf.com is pretty good with their cap number and they have the Texans prior to today at $20 mil in cap space with over $7 mil carried forward from last year. If Carr leaves, the Texans are not hurting for cap space.

    Does this mean DD/DW and Wong are safe, or will there be another round of cuts before Friday?

    I knew Payne and Wiegert would be cut, but the Moulds cut came as a bit of a surprise. I know he is getting old (33 yrs I think) and he has a big contract, but I thought he played ok under the circumstances, and he was a big help to AJ and the team in general. Oh well, time to move on I guess. JMHO!

    Cuts dont have to be made before March 1. Most signing and roster bonuses are on March 1, others are not. So the cut could come before the start of the season as well.

    Here is something that annoys me. We won't necessarily CLEAR cap space. Sure we save their salary, but they still count against the cap in terms of Bonus pay, and we still have to pay a replacement.

    Nope, they are expected to be gone also according to McClain, probably soon IMO.

    would not surprise me if the cuts continue tomorrow so we have more cap money to spend on possible FA's...the way kubiak has sounded when talking about DW i would imagine he will be on the way out...as for wong i could see him being a june 1st cut...keep him just in case we are not able to land the linebacker we want in the draft or in FA

    I'm really surprised that we cut Moulds. I thought that he could really help take pressure off of Johnson in the passing game. I sure hope that he will be replaced by another great talent. You need two great receivers in this league plus a standout RB.

    Has any #2 wr done well with Carr? Seems like just the #1, and tight ends. And the dumpoff...
