    Perhaps he can work his way onto the depth chart and play? The Titans always have a great d-line, so maybe he had some quality coaching there that can translate into solid production here where we are lacking in talent.

    They better get him in quickly, because after about six months of Texans coaching, he may forget all he was taught. by the Tacks.

    What about safety Torry Williams being brought up. He can't be any worse than what's being fielded right now.

    The important piece here is the elevation of SS Torri Williams to the main roster. There are a number of draft guys, like myself, that saw a lot of promise in TW. One of the detriments of Pollard is his coverage skills. TW is not a hard hitter, but has better coverage skills.

    how is this guys eligible for the PS?

    I thought you could only be on a PS 2 or 3 years.

    PK,

    It's a bit confusing. But he has been on only 2 practice squads previously. One full year was knocked out with injury. He has had very short active status stays with multiple teams. Therefore he still fits into the 2] plus 3] criteria below.



    NFL RULES FOR PRACTICE SQUAD ELIGIBILITY:

    1]Have no prior Accrued Seasons in the NFL (An accrued season is six or more games on the active roster);

    2]Have one prior Accrued Season in which the player was on the 45-man active roster for no more than 8 games; and,

    3]Have been on the practice squad with a particular team no more than 2 prior seasons unless the team never had their active roster go below 53 players during the two years the player served on the practice squad. If that is the case, the player is eligible for a third practice squad season.


    Amazing, but correct!

    I dunno, that Antwaan Molden is something special plus he's a 3rd round pick so TW has a way to go before he sees the field
