    As always, JJ is gonna have to take out all challengers to keep his spot on the roster...

    About even on kickoff returns, couple of yeards better on punt returns and opbviously wins on TD's returned.... loses on 2 fumbles in 4 years.

    Moses stats
    Swinton stats

    Sound about even to me (comparing stats anyway).

    Swinton should win. He would actually be WR depth as well. That's an important issue. JJ has no value outside of returning kicks.

    He would most likely never play at WR... AJ and Bradford would start (unless we draft a good WR) with Gaffeny in the slot and Armstrong as the 4th. Unless we start playing some Patriot style football (but i doubt that)! :heh:

    I think it is actually worse for the DL. No competiton and way overpaid.

    I hope that this year our DL can stay heathly and dominate the opposing OL's and open up some running room for our linebackers to make plays. Sometime in the near future we are gonna have to do something about the DL though. Maybe in next years draft or FA.

    OK guys, the magic word "competition" talking about JJ Moses isn't an open invitation to run off-topic on "competition" at every other position on the team.

    Sorry J.J but I dont think it will be much of a competition. Swinton is just as good of a returner and he can also catch if called upon so he gives us more WR depth and you know the old saying two is better than one.

    Swinton puts a couple balls on the ground in training camp, like the 10 he has put on the ground in the last 4 seasons, and you're right--it won't be much of a competition.

    This is a very good signing. I can't wait for the dudes to go at it in Training Camp. Didn't Swinton have a good game against us last year or was that someone else?

    Hey you can't just give the man the job, you gotta make him earn it and this will be a good way to do that.

    You definately make him earn it. How mant return TD's did J.J. get last year? What was our special teams ranked? Lets not give J.J. the job right now because he has at least as much to prove to the Texans orginization as Swinton does.

    Yah sure JJ hasnt been the greatest player but with what talents hes been giving he gets out there day in and day out and competes with what he has. so to say he hasnt proven anything to the texan organization is kinda messed up, cause he has. who else the past 2 years were we gonna put bak there? and how many times did we sign diffrent guys for him to compete with? i know we have and hes won out every time. so yes i agree hes not the best but hes one of my fav. on the team and im glad to have him.
