    Bark is not worth his $7 million contract. He is negative value.

    They dumped him on us.

    Guys that play in the 4th president can make the 53. But, they're on the rock bottom of the depth chart. One of these guys may have made the Seahawks. Both, would be doubtful. But let's be honest. They're at the bottom of the Texans depth chart, too.

    Head coach Bill O'Brien discussed the Texans young outside linebacker.

    "I see him being a guy that did a lot of what he did in Seattle," O'Brien said of Martin. "A guy that can be a four-down defensive end, a guy that can be an outside backer of the edge, a SAM, and then also a guy that is what I call a stemwinder on special teams, a guy that can cover kicks."

    He’s not going to be Clowney, but he was pretty productive when playing on 22% of defensive snaps last year. I believe he can give you what Clowney did vs the pass as a rotational guy.

    I saw the four- down quote the other day. Hope so. I heard however he needs to keep his weight up and I think he is 6’2”. But that guy is fast and active from the videos I’ve seen. This is the guy I most want to see on Monday. Wonder if he was targeted in this trade.

    It appears that neither made the stat sheet today.

    Any pressures or hurries?

    @billbarnwell: The two linebackers the Texans acquired in the Jadeveon Clowney played a combined 43 defensive snaps over the first month of the season. https://t.co/XTIONyOg6j
