    Good luck to Seth. He always gave 110%. I will always remember how devastating it was to lose him for the season in that N.O. game a couple of years back.

    I suspect the first of many cuts to come.

    Good luck to Seth, tho'. Hope he finds a starting job outside of our division.

    One of my favorite players. Just couldn't stay on the field. Good luck, Seth.

    Enjoyed him. Too bad he got hurt so often, he could have been one of the greats. I guess this means he refused a restructured contract.

    I like Seth as well. However, we need to start ridding ourselves of the old regime. It doesn't mean you dislike a player to say they're 'infected' but our old mentality was infected with losing.

    I believe Kubiak will bring in the right people to alleviate us from that mindframe but unfortunately, it means getting rid of some of the people we all like personally.

    From day one he has been the best noseguard /DT out the bunch. Sad to see him go, but it needs to be done to better this dline.
    Hope he lands somewhere fast and has an injury free carrer from here on out.

    Good Luck Seth!

    Or, it could be that Payne is overpaid for his health status and that we just had to spend our money better but has nothing to do with the draft pick until we get through Free Agency and the cuts/releases of all teams.

    Okoye Maybe ?

    I'm guessing that because of the personnel on our line he'd be the best choice...

    That way we wouldn't have to rely on Weaver getting pressure from the DE spot...We'd have someone that could get pressure from inside...???

    I wish Seth the best of luck. He's a classy guy & will be missed. I'm sure the Browns or 49ers would be interested in his services. The 49ers sure have enough cap room to add some quality defensive players like Payne to their roster this offseason.

    Does anyone know how much dead money this adds to the cap?

    Payne had two years left on a contract that gave him a $4.5 million bonus. So, that means he still had $2.25 million left to be amortizied. Since Payne would have drawn a $3.2 million salary for '07, the Texans saved money against the cap.
