    Tim Jamison moved back to practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.

    Torain was a beast at ASU and looked good when Denver plugged him in when all the other backs went down.

    Yep. Torain is a guy I've been hoping to get cut by Denver all year... perfect ZBS guy, but he's injury prone of course.

    He played for the 49rs for 5 years (2001-2005)..........I'm sure we picked him up solely as a SPY for the next game.:spy:

    From what I have been able to come up with, he is basically a strong side LB, but he is supposedly capable of playing all three LB positions............and you know Kubiak and VERSATILITY............

    on the active roster, the texans are not even 2 deep (5 guys). In the shortest of terms, LB is a need although the guys we have are playing well.

    You're right, some things never change, and perhaps one of the things that should is the criticism of the FO for signing so many former Bronco players.

    Since the start of the season, we've signed 7 players to the PS, and 5 players to the active roster. This includes previous Texan players like Buster Davis and Clark Harris, as well as totally new guys like Bernard Pollard and Jamie Winborn.

    Winborn is the first of those with so much as a single year with the Broncos, and he has been with 3 other teams in addition to the Broncos and now Texans.

    What's even more annoying than the supposed "Denver connection" is people bitching about a 6th LB because of it.

    I support this signing. We cant go the whole season with only 6 LBers. Especially when the coaching staff has been sitting our newest stud Cushing for a day or two so he doesn't get worn out. We need to spread the reps around in the LB core to make sure the strongest part of the defense doesn't get worn out.

    Plus we get a veteran with starter experience. Not a bad backup to have imo.

    Houston has on of the best LB corps in the league and cheap depth never hurts I support this signing.
