    I'm just curious - can any of you provide any info about Tim Brown. Here is what is on one of the Steelers sites:

    HECK OF A JOB, BROWNIE

    Tim Brown’s size and versatility were the reasons the Steelers added the former West Virginia Mountaineer to their practice squad this week.

    Brown (6-4 ½, 318) played tackle, guard and center during his six years at WVU. He was granted a medical redshirt after missing the 2003 season with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon.

    Brown was signed by the Houston Texans after the 2005 draft and played in the preseason before being released. He spent the last month and a half working construction in Harrisburg, where his father moved the family from the Greensburg-Mt. Pleasant area.

    Brown replaced Jim Jones, who’d spent the 2004 season on the Steelers’ active roster before being released from this year’s practice squad.

    Thanks a lot!

    PS - The Texans are my 2nd favorite team - good luck vs the Colts! :yahoo:

    I hate to say this, but if Tim Brown, an offensive lineman, gets cut by the Houston Texans (worst offensive line in NFL), its not a good thing. If he had gotten cut by you or by Indy or Denver, etc, I would be excited. That being said, the Texans have a vivid history of cutting players they didnt know what to do with only to have them turn into probowlers with good coaching. Good luck and I hope he works out for you!
