    David Anderson is one of the free agent receivers the Texans are going to work out on Tuesday.

    With Kevin Walter nursing a badly bruised shoulder, the Texans are looking to sign a veteran. He played his first five seasons with the Texans. He was a salary cap casualty who signed with Denver.

    Anderson was waived by the Broncos in their roster reduction to 53. He flew from Denver to Houston on Monday night and will work out at their Methodist Training Facility.

    Coach Gary Kubiak said Walter will be reevaluated on Wednesday. He didn't rule Walter out of the Miami game.

    The odds are that Walter will be sidelined. Jacoby Jones would replace him. Bryant Johnson would move up a spot, creating an opening for a fourth wideout.

    Workout David Anderson? Whatever for?
    Don't they know enough about him already?
    Maybe they want to see if he had tied his tongue in knot so as not to interfere with his play? :choke:

    Signing him will appeal to the Jacoby Haters.
    The only reason they hate on Jacoby is because
    he is here, and Anderson is not.

    We all know that...


    the goofy "string dance" marked the last time
    he scored an NFL touchdown (THREE YEARS
    AGO!)

    If KW is going to miss time, I would rather get a fast guy to run a fly or post to stretch defenses than the DA 1 yard drag 2 yard gain.

    Need a yard, he gets you 2. Need 5 yards, he gets you 2.

    I was hoping this would happen. I'd love to have the guy back on the roster.

    We have Walter , Daniels , Casey , Dreessen , Graham , and maybe Anderson . That has to sting for us to look like the 58 Colts .

    I'm sure Dre will appreciate him someone to carry his bags, but I want a guy who can actually contribute...

    So your saying that prior to July 30th of this year (the date that Anderson was released) there were no Jacoby haters?

    BS - people have been wanting to cut JJ long before Anderson was cut.

    Perception would not seem to meet reality.

    % of receptions for 1st downs:

    Anderson - 62%, 10.9 ypr
    Reggie Bush - 35%, 7.3 ypr
    JJ - 65%, 12.8, ypr
    Walter - 65%, 12.3 ypr
    AJ - 65%, 13.6 ypr
    Houshmanzadeh - 63%, 11.5 ypr
    Bryant Johnson - 65%, 12.5 ypr

    Only one significant outlier among these (picked Bush since we are about to play him and Anderson and Housh because they have been mentioned as connected to these tryouts).

    I am not saying bring Anderson back because he has been here before. Just providing some perspective information. I hope they pick the person with the best chance to help if called upon. Familiarity is a factor but shouldn't be the only one.

    General McLame mentions it was DA and a few other receivers in his chat today, but never mentions who the other ones are. But he is adamant that DA will be on this squad.

    Good post.

    I understand why folks are hard on JJ and expect him to perform better more consistently, but I never understood the DA dislike...

    And I also agree that they should sign the best man for the job whomever that may be.
