    The Houston Texans waived defensive end Gary Walker and named Tracy Simien assistant defensive line coach, it was announced today.

    Simien joins the Texans staff after coaching the defensive line for the Cologne Centurions of the NFL Europe league in 2005. He spent the 2004 season as a coaching intern in Tampa during NFL Europe training camp.

    The Sweeny native played seven seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs, from 1991-97, and spent time with the San Diego Chargers in 1999. He finished his career with five sacks and five interceptions, along with 367 total tackles. He also played for the Montreal Machine of the World League in 1991, the league’s inaugural season, after a standout career at TCU.

    No, they said at that time they were allowing him the right to make a deal for himself, but they didn't officially waive him until today. It's no surprise he is gone. It was said at the time they let the others go they were going to let him make his own deal and he was gone too. I guess he wasn't able to work anything out with anyone.

    under the new CBA, teams can release a limited number of veterans before June 1st while still using the post-June 1st rule.

    For some reason I think that this has something to do with David Givens. Todays Houston Chronicle said that the Texans offered Givens 18.5 mil. over 5 years, and that wasnt close to the 25 mil that he was expecting. With the release of Walker, Houston may now be able to offer 20 or 21 mil and hopefuly sign the man they want.

    Gary Walker had a 6 million dollar cap hit for this year, but if I'm right and we get all of the money back then we should be able to sign him. We'd only be giving him another 1.5 mil a year if we gave him what he wanted and we were going to give him 3.5 mil.

    I really, really, hope your right. Some people say defense wins championships, but if you don't score points you can't win.

    That's a great point I thought the same thing when I heard they released him today, all the reports leading up to todays anoncment were that if there was a new CBA we would release him after June 1st.

    We still have to pay his bonus. So we didnt save very much money at all.
