    What if a great body hits us and redirects us to spin in the opposite direction? It appears this happened to Venus at some point. However, my money is on your prediction.

    If that happens, the sun rising and setting will be low on the priority list. If it isn't already.

    Not very surprised by this move. Wade had almost zero mobility, add to that an injury, and he isn't the poster child for the zone blocking scheme.

    Wade will get the league minimum somewhere. Or he could just quit. It's not like he's going to run out of money... ever... thanks to Casserly and Capers.

    Pierce was just a charity case anyway and is probably done for good. Kubiak was nice enough to get him a few more paychecks.

    Thank goodness!

    Kubiak is cleaning house, bringing in players who want to play, and making us a contender.

    PLAYOFFS BABY!

    I thought these guys didn't get paid in the offseason, basically paid weekly through the regular season or something like that. Basically, you had to make the official roster to get paid your contract amount, which is paid of over the course of the regular season.

    Since Pierce was never on the roster during the regular season (played with Denver in 2004 and was waived in training camp from Denver in 2005), how could he have gotten a paycheck from the Texans?

    If anyone knows how this stuff works, I would like to hear it.

    So the Dallas Morning News has already reported this (using the Associated Press wire), but no Chronicle yet? Okey dokey.

    There could be a workout bonus or something built into his contract.

    They get some sort of money. The undrafted free agent type receive a weekly paycheck that would equate to $60K or so over a year????? It might be a little more. Roster players get paid for camp and stuff to, at some very reduced rate. I don't know the exact numbers.

    Another brilliant move by Casserly bites the dust. I wonder how much dead money we will have to absorb.

    Well he was scheduled to make 5.1 mil this season and 6.1 mil next season, with 3.2 total listed as bonus pay. Not sure exactly how it all works out though.

    I don't have any animosity towards the guy and I'm sure that if his knee heals up that he'll find a home somewhere. He didn't suck for the first four years of his career in Miami. Just the year and half he played for Joe Pendry. I look at his departure as a matter of him simply not being the type of lineman we need for our new offense.

    Good luck to Todd Wade in the future (except for when the Texans are lining up against him).

    Is there a possibility of us keeping wade if he would like to reconstructure his contract, so as not to hurt the cap room...as much.

    No, too late for that.

    It says over the next two years we will absorb $6.67 million in dead cap from cutting him, they have the option of pushing up to $5 million against the cap next year, although they will likely take most or all of that this year since they have some cap room, which sounds like a good plan so they can go ahead and get it over with and have more cap room next year for any potential free agent acquisitions, and so we don't keep delaying cap hits like the Titans.
