    The Houston Texans sign Myron Rolle to a 1yr deal. Rolle will take a spot on the team as #1 Medical Examiner and immediatly doubling the medical IQ of the staff.

    I cant help it. I was born an asshole.

    I woulda punted Innegan several times while he was down ..... lol


    I liked him in the late rounds of the draft ..... Several others here had their eye on him too.


    Honestly , the Texans safety play has been pretty solid thus far with Manning , Quin , Nolan and Barber .... Im more concerned with CB and WR to be honest.

    Rolle is an interesting pick up. Is he taking Dre's roster spot? Going to the practice squad or what?

    True, that's what happens when you read forums and watch Big Bang Theory at the same time.

    I remember wanting Myron Rolle in the draft a couple years ago, surely he could beat out Barber as SS depth. Darcel McBath is also a possibility.

    If they're good enough to start at CB, they are very likely already playing this time of year. :toropalm:

    I do like that they recognize their weakness though. :texflag:

    I'm thinking the same. And if the reports are true from McClain that Holliday was cut, did we sign one of these guys. If so, why? Is there another injury that has yet to be reported?

    I don't see the benefit in this at all.

    When I read the title, I thought maybe we are looking for a starter. After seeing who tried out & who we signed, it looks like we're addressing a depth issue & going with what we brung.

    KJax is good to for a specific number of plays. Allen is good for a certain number of plays. It's up to the coaches to switch them out before they get to the bad play portion of their game.
