    im not going to completely disagree with capers, but i do believe it would have been possible to carry a 6th WR on the roster. we will have to see how this pans out to see what other personel they are going to carry.

    and so much for my predicted 53 man roster! just CRUMBLE my dreams CAPERS!!!

    the texans have yet to make a decision on the wide receivers.

    the chron is expecting swinton and thomas to be cut. we just have to hope thomas clears waivers so we can sign him to the practice squad. swinton will likely be picked up quickly but another team. i really wish they would keep 6 receivers.

    Id really like to know what coaches daughter Corey Bradford is dating.

    Im sorry but WHAT has this guy done? He has been on our team since 2002 and not ONCE has he been an integral part of our offense. If we need SPEED.. then throw Mathis out there and tell him to go deep.

    ugh.. Thomas should have made the team. Maybe the coaches just feel that having what is essentially two rookies at WR..is just too risky. But dang it..

    I dunno.. maybe its just because Sloan Thomas = Derrick Armstrong = Jabar Gaffney. Maybe you can only use so many "quick" receivers with good hands.

    that article is saying that Thomas and Swinton are expected to be cut. Meaning.. it hasnt happened yet.. but they have inside info that says it is going to happen.

    Wow, I thought Swinton would be a lock. But i guess if mathis and Buchannon are doing well, that makes him expendable.

    him and thomas are both going to get signed to the practice squad. (if your taking about bj symons)

    ...unless sloan gets picked up by another team though. at least i think thats how it works, they must clear waivers after getting released before getting signed to the PS.

    thanks. so with the practice squad, how does it work in regards to the other team (53 squad). are they just like 3-4 stringers??? waiting their turn to be brought up if needed?

    Practice squad players are inactive (can't play) for all games, unless they get added to the active roster prior to the game. Any team can pick up a practice squad player (from their own or any other team's roster) so long as they are willing to keep them on their active gameday roster.

    That article is written weirdly. At the top, it does not sound definitive, but later McClain states that the Texans waived the players. Confusing writing from a career journalist.

    I will wait until the Texans post it on thier site.

    Bradford is a mean SOB, he will put a great block and catch a 90 yard bomb. You know we love that down here in the Lone Star State. Now only if he could get open for the first 10 yards!!

    I agree to being confused myself. Don't know for sure what is speculation and
    what is official. I think you're right Arlington, waiting for the Texans site to
    post a statement is the best way to go in this situation.

    IF sloan does not make it.. it would be the dumbest move since drafting steve. He has shown he is a true NFL reciever. He will not make it to our practice squad. He will be picked up.
