I'd take him in a second if I felt he wasn't here as a last resort like some others that have come this way .
I sign him yesterday. Big kid. I know he played end for them, but since Wade likes smaller NT, maybe he can play some nose for us.
"Warren failed his physical with the Patriots"
So, why would we want him?
I'd be very cautious.
Typical texans fans. Wade hade ted washignton,pat williams,and jamaal williams, yet people want to take a really good 5 technique and make him a nt? He's better than any 5 technique the texans have. He's played at a high level, still pretty good and he's from the area. Why on earth would he play the nt is beyond me. As I said earlier and in previous post, the texans need to see the cost to cut smith or trade him and bring warren in.
Trade for a player who missed all of last season with a hip injury and just failed a physical? Why?
Can't trade for him, he's a free agent.
Just go over there, and turn over the rock and leaf and if he's got something bring him on. I want a stout defense. A very strong defense. Right now, he would be good depth. We just signed Tim Bulman but Warren is much better than him. That would give us some very good rotation.
You want to cut our 2nd best Dlinemen for a player that didn't pass a physical and was injured all last season?
I'm all for bringing in Ty, but at a bargain price.
In the nfl, teams will fail a guy on a physical to get rid of his contract. There have been a lot of players fail a teams physical, get cut, and pass 10 other teams physical. Its the way they do business. He missed last season, but sidney rice missed most of last year with a hip and sill got paid. Cromrtie his last yr in sd had a. Hip problem, goes to the jets and plays well. Bring him in, check him out with your doctors, and if he checks out, sign him. He will be the best lineman not named mario on the roster.
well if he can pass physical here and is on the cheap I would like the depth.
Why would they need to have a player fail a physical to get rid of his contract?
Smith didn't play to his contrract and now he's about to play the 3-4. In arizona, they play a lot of hybrid and he played average except for a playoff game or so. They let him walk and his replacement outplayed him, campbell. What are the texans expecting out of a 270lbs 5 technique? Show me a top ranked 3-4 with a 5 technique at 274. There aren't any in the league. So now they have to insert the safety in the box to protect not only a small de, but a small nt. Now the backend is exposed again. Think players, not schemes.
The same way they put a guy on the pup list because of a conditioning test. The nfl does things like that all the time. Everyones physical is different and most times, its a reason to dump a player.
But you said they fail a player to get rid of his contract. Why would they bother with blaming it on a physical when virtually every contract in the NFL can be terminated for any reason without further financial obligation?
Also - give me a single example where a player has been placed on the PUP list because of a failed conditioning test.
Maybe this isn't a fair comparison but Willie Roaf (OF) failed his physical which is why we couldn't draft him in the expansion draft and look at how his career went.
I would bring him in and get Wade's opinion on him and, if he signs a cheap contract it couldn't hurt to have him.
