    @caplannfl I'm told pending physical tomorrow Texans are expected to sign WR Juaquin Iglesias.

    Interesting signing, but Overreacting much after the Oakland game?

    nah.

    I don't epect to see him on the field this season though.

    He was a solid receiver for Oklahoma a couple of years ago, but I haven't really followed him since then. I think we may have seen the end of David Anderson in a Texans uniform if we really do sign him. Can't see how we make room for him and Mason without letting DA go.

    Here is why we picked him up.

    "More solid than flashy, Iglesias' size, speed and ability to gain yards after the catch make him a natural for the West Coast Offense. His experience as a kick returner (876 yards in '07, 475 in '08) also adds value. Had an arm span of 31 inches and a hand span of 9 1/2 inches at the combine."http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/juaquin-iglesias?id=80650
    He's 6-1 210lbs

    He's a pretty good returner.

    Not a bad signing.

    This doesn't put Jacoby's job in danger right after signing a new contract, does it?

    From the results it is seeming to generate, who might have been able to hear the whole thing from down the hall.

    So who's out? 2 new WRs, somebody has to go.

    I kinda have that same gut feeling. It may be a Slaton type deal like when they cut him as soon as Foster was back. As soon as AJ gets back Jones my be out of here.

    Caplan's saying he thinks Iglesias will be a practice squad addition:

    Maybe Nading's being bumped up to the 53 man roster to take Mario's spot, and Iglesias gets the PS spot that becomes available. If so, 3 of 8 PS spots are WR's

    Truthfully, I think that could be a stroke of genius.

    These players shouldn't feel comfortable just because Kubiak is a player's coach. They need a wakeup call.

    Perform or face the abyss!

    Iglesias was drafted in the 3rd round by the chicago bears a few seasons back and for some reason he never got the opportunity or he didn't fit what the were trying to do Ch-town. I loved him coming out of oklahoma and maybe he rebuild his career with the texans.
