    Any early rumors out there on who's getting cut by the Texans. I think we'll be picking up a couple of pretty good DL off the waiver. Phil and Tenn are loaded so they'll have to make moves or release a couple on each team.

    Question:
    If we make our cuts and then pick up a player off the Waiver wire, can we then cut that player later in the day if we see someone we prefer?

    Aren't WW transactions a 24 hour deal? We could probably rescind the claim if we want something else.

    All teams have to be 53 man rosters by 4 pm EDT (I think) today.

    I don't think it works exactly like that. Waiver wire works in an order. It's like the draft. Worst teams give first shot and down the line. I'm not sure if the same process works on this cut. Guys with current contracts are handled differently than rookies or free agents.

    Once players are cut by a team, they are eligible to be signed first by the team with the worst record in the previous season (in this case the Lions), then the second worst and so on until you get to the best NFL team. So if a player is cut and the Lions don't put a waiver out on him, he's eligible to be signed by the Rams and then the Chiefs and so on. Of course, the team that signs him can't go over the 53-man roster limit so they may have to make cuts as well to make room.

    If a waived player is picked up by a team and then released again, he goes through the waiver wire process all over again.

    Only players with four or fewer accrued NFL seasons enter the waiver wire. Here is the definition of an accrued season: 6 or more regular-season games in one season in which a player is on the 53-man protected roster, IR list or PUP list.

    Players who have completed more than four accrued seasons automatically become free agents if they are let go at this point in the season.

    This waiver wire order is reset on September 28th to reflect the current worst win/loss records in the league.

    What ever happened to Rodrique Wright? Wasn't he considered a stud prior to coming out of college?

    Absolutely. He fell hard in the draft and then got hurt his first season. He had a good game against us a few years ago. I would love for the Texans to take a look at him, granted he's healthy.

    Dan Klecko, DL, Philadelphia Eagles
    Undersized but great effort guy

    Tommie Hill, DL, New York Giants
    Out of Colorodo State so watch out :)

    Chuck Darby, DL, Free Agent
    Started a few games for Detroit last year.

    Lydon Murtha, OT, Free Agent
    Very athletic OL that a few of us liked in last years draft. Good ZB candidate.

    Courtney Bryan, FS, Free Agent
    Hes a safety and we need one. Dont know much of anything about him.

    Brandon Frye, OT, Free Agent
    Never understood why we let him go.

    Rodrique Wright, DL, Free Agent
    Put him on the practice squad and let him get healthy.

    I'm not sure, you're allowed to put other teams' players on your practice squad.

    Do you think Jamison has a chance to make the 53 man roster?

    Mario
    ASmith
    Barwin
    Bulman
    Okoye
    Robinson
    Okam
    Cody
    ...... if we keep 9 DL, I think he may make it. He has a ton of potential and is already playing pretty fast out there. I think I'd like to see him make it over Nading.

    I believe they also have to clear waivers to be PS elegible.
