    per Bob Allen ABC 13

    "Texans are not happy with his attitude"

    "Not gonna be one of their top 4 receivers"

    What will it take to move him?

    Supply and demand. This draft is loaded with WR talent. He was selected in the 3rd round as a young, inexperienced WR with a lot of upside... he was a project. Doesn't look like we want to finish the project, will another team? If so what would they be willing to give up... 3rd, 4th, 5th?

    There are some teams that could use WR help but I can't see Jacoby getting traded before draft day unless its for something low. Smart move for teams in need would be to see how the draft plays out. Maybe it could turn into a draft day trade... we should be talking to some teams at the Combine. If their WR gets selected and we see a player we want dropping maybe a deal gets done.

    I'd be more than supportive of this. One thing's for sure... he's gonna make Kubiak grow some gray hairs if he stays around.

    According to Bob Allen on channel 13 tonight. He said that Jacoby Jones days are numbered and the Texans are looking to move him before the draft and get a draft pick for him. Bob Allen said they Texans are tired of his fumbling problem and his maturity. Also they know he won't break the top 4 WR on this team.

    Sorry, no link to this. Like I said, I saw this on the news tonight.

    I'm mixed on this decision but I'm thrilled to see the team making moves and decisions with such conviction. It seems clear that they have an agenda and it's about to be worked out!

    He is a really tough one to figure out. He can make a huge play and be great one day and then fumble the next. He is too streaky. Looking at what we could have done, there were not a lot of better options. The player I liked, Jason Hill hasn't done a whole lot in his nfl career, so...

    JJ had some very good moments, though he's had worse ones that overshadow his accomplishments...I do get tired of holding my breath when the opposing team punts the ball....:fans:

    If they can get a 5th round pick for him in this deep of a draft, I'd consider that a reasonable deal. Boy, he and Jerome Mathis are really following similar career paths, huh.

    Here's my chant that I yell over and over during every single punt return:

    "don't fumble, don't fumble, don't fumble, don't fumble, hold on to it!"

    what did JJ do as of recently to warrant being traded? i dont see any reason to give up on a guy so young so soon unless another team was bowling us over with a trade offer of draft picks

    I would miss the excitement every time he was about to return a kick:

    Will he get a TD!?!?
    or
    Will he fumble it!?!?

    Come on guys. It's clear now. They are for sure drafting Maclin. Can't believe nobody has made the connection.

    I kept hoping JJ would grow up this year, but that doesn't appear to be happening any time soon. Really too bad - he had such promise. This is probably a pretty good move as with JJ, you just never know what you are going to get at any given punt. I got nervous every time he walked on the field.

    I can't tell if this is sarcastic, so I will treat it as if it is not. He is an all or nothing kind of returner: big return or dancing/fumbling. How many times have we cowered if there was a punt. I know I have been terrified of hom dropping the ball on the ground.

    Just to clarify things, how many fumbles did he actually have during the 2008 season? Im not talking bobbles or close calls, I'm talking actual fumbles. I dont see it listed on ESPN

    Me too, but it is a little scary! I almost feel like we are going backwards. I understand starting fresh, but when Im reading Sage, Weaver, Jones ... yikes!

    They obviously have a plan that they are not sharing with us (the NERVE!), the cap money being freed up sure does make one wonder :thinking:

    I can't agree with you more!! He scares the hell out of me when he is back there as a punt returner and if he can't beat out a 7th round draft pick in David Anderson, then its time to move on!

    If something goes down, Maclin's value definitely just skyrocketed for us. I really really want to solidify our Defense but I'd take the pick of Maclin. I heard he hyperextended his knee today. Is that true? If so, I don't know the longterm effects or recovery time but It sounds somewhat serious.
