    Great to see Ogbonnaya and Maehl made the squad.

    I'm a bit surprised not to see Keglar and Scooter Berry on that list. But I'm thinking they aren't done yet.

    Keglar might have played in too many games. I think he played on ST for us in quite a few games last year and I think he played some games with the Titans the year before that.

    Really thought we were done with Holliday. Waste of a PS spot. If someone thinks he belongs there, please show me one (1) highlight of him on the field.

    Just one. This is for entertainment purposes only. Please, no wagering.

    I'm glad Trindon made it onto the PS.

    Don't know why Keo made it. Hopefully he improves.

    I like Brandon Ghee from the Vikings and would like to snatch him off of their PS. Dude is a physical specimen at CB.

    Yep - Keglar isn't even close to be practice squad eligible. You can't have an "accrued season" in the NFL to qualify, Keglar has three.

    $5,700/week minimum. A team can pay more than that if they want to, but I'm pretty sure it all counts against the salary cap.

    Around $90,000 for a full season. They can nego. for more and in a handful of cases have been known to make the same as if they on the regualr squad. This is the exception by far as most dudes figure out that $90,000 half a year jobs aren't lying around, especially ones where they are a wrong step one from that job being $300,000 or so.

    Does an undrated FA like Maehl or a drafted player like Keo who failed to make the roster get that PS money in additon to any money/compensation they've already negotiated for to sign with the Texans ?

    id assume being on the PS would overrride their contract- which they get 1/16th of every wk they're on the 53 normal roster

    Whether a drafted player or a UDFA, their contract was voided when they were waived and not claimed by another team. If there was a signing bonus involved, they get to keep that, but any base salary included in that contract no longer matters.

    Say Keo got "X" in signing bonus or other guanteed money when they inked their origional contract with the Texans and which he kept even though he failed to make the roster ? OK this PS money (which I understand is like 5K a week) is money they receive in addition to "X", right ?

    Yup. Any link if he got the signing bonus, being a 5th round pick ?

    Signing bonues for 5th round picks are somewhere around 175,000-200,000 (sorry no linkage) and that money is upfront whether they make the team or not.

    Just to note: most of these guys (past the 2nd/3rd round) play for league minimiums as base salaries for length of the contract.

    Would you expect an undrafted FA rookie like Maehl to get a contract that included any signing bonus or other guaranteed money, or does he come to Houston with only the understanding that he gets nothing but an opportunity to make the roster and then get paid ?

    UDFA do get something like $800/week to try out at the camp. Veterans may get 1200/week ( Maynard ) but they also get roomed and fed at the camp. If you are good, and make the roster, then you get a contract. Not sure about signing bonus
