    ................According McClain this morning on 610, the Texans worked out mostly DB FAs yesterday, suspecting injuries dictating this. Evidently no WRs.

    Nice, we tried out former Red Raider and 2nd round pick Safety Darcel Mcbath

    Best wishes on Holliday! Not a wasted 6th if his hands & confidence weren't damaged goods. Elite speed would've been a nice weapon :shoot:

    Its a gamble on a guy with elite speed late in the draft. Not a bad try. Sometimes this happens.

    P.O.S.? Seriously?

    A bit overboard calling him a P.O.S. in my opinion. Wow.

    Say that to his face. He was CHOSEN in the draft, your gripe should be with the ones picking players. Don't ya' think?

    LOL. AND call the guy a P.O.S., too. Forgot to do that.

    I'm wondering what took this so long to happen. He was/is always injured and when he did play didn't show much

    Cut from the practice squad, after an injury to a WR?

    There's a story as to why, and why now, but we'll never hear about it.

    It certainly says something that in this time of need at WR......they cut him.

    A 6th for a gamble on that kinda speed ain't bad. It's not good but maybe handle it better next time it happens, which with an ever improving roster should be pretty often.

    Raiders sign FA Trindon Holliday from waivers.

    Could be to make room on the roster by moving someone else to the PS for a coming FA move for a WR ? :thinking:

    hmmmmm.....
    Well the "Why" could be as simple as Manning and Jacoby quite nicely fill the job he was drafted to perform - kick/punt returner - PLUS they play other positions too...? So why continue to have him taking up a roster spot?

    I must admit that I don't have an answer for the "why now" part. And that IS an interesting question.
    :thinking:

    That's it. I'm writing Sheila Jackson Lee about this, she'll know why, why now, (why this wide receiver). :D

    Kidding aside. It could be 'why now' was AJ's injury, plus lingering questions about the secondary's depth could have been the final straw. Like some have said before me though, we might not ever really know.
