    I'm hearing from a few sources that we are signing Terence Newman as a safety. Has anyone else heard this yet and if so, what thoughts do you have?

    I think he is past his prime, but still an OK guy to have in our secondary. We still need to firm that area of our D up I.M.O.

    Hearing from who? Our season isn't over and Newman hasn't even been released yet. Not sure that I want any part of Newman to begin with. He's just bad. He wouldn't be an upgrade at either cornerback or safety.

    Newman was embarrassed yesterday. And I'm saying this politely.

    If this was 5 years ago, I'd be ecstatic, but he's past his prime now. Where did you hear the rumors? I can't imagine signing Newman right before the playoffs, seeing that he doesn't know our playbook at all.

    If he got released and went threw the waiver system and then became a FA, then and only then he could sign.

    Ridiculous thread time is normally this week but we're in the playoffs this year.

    Please save this nonsense until after we are eliminated or win the SB.

    I think we should sign Deion Sanders and Rod Woodson.

    I sort of doubted it myself, but a guy who is a sports DJ here in Austin said he heard it and I saw it on the other Texans Forum board. Neither of which are concrete sources. That is why I asked here.

    Who would he be replacing?? And I thought contracts weren't concluded until late January/mid-February. But I'm in no way sure about that.

    IF this has any truth to it, and I'm in no way convinced it does, he'd probably be put on special teams.

    Then again, Wade coached him in Dallas, sooooo.....

    No need to be a smart alec Papal. It was a RUMOR I'd heard and was hoping for some TRUTH were I feel I can find it. That is why it was asked as a question and not stated as a fact. Lighten the hell up man!
