    From what I could find, the players we worked out are: Richard Quinn, Charles Davis, Wes Lyons, Gijon Robins, QB Jerrod Johnson and WR Wes Lyons

    Isn't the point of most of the workouts to scout potential players for future purposes (moreso than looking for players to sign right now)? Being that the Texans have an offense so reliant on a specific type of tight end, Smith is doing a necessary job assessing available talent.

    Can't we go out and sign some unemployed NBA player who's 7'2" and have him run fade routes in the end zone? I hear those guys are looking for work, and there's just no way in hell a 6'0 CB is going to even get a hand on the ball in that situation.

    I hate to break it to you, but the players do not get free tickets to the game. They have to buy them just like we do. If the game is in town then they get the tickets at the season ticket holders prices. If the game is out of town then they pay face value of the tickets in that city.

    I guess they're thinking that if Walter + Jones can = #2 receiver,

    then

    4 TEs can = #2 receiver!:kitten:

    You know how some famous Texas players end up going into the agriculture business when they retire such as Earl Campbell Sausage, and Nolan Ryan Steaks.. I am pretty sure Kubiak is going to end up running some sort of Tight End Ranch for retired TE's or something. Probably have the annual TE Rodeo with TE roping or something.
