    Maybe getting a CB means we can let one go. I'd try to sneak Quin onto the practice squad.

    ...or cut Bennett or Molden. Neither had a very "outstanding" camp. IMHO, the two rookie CB outplayed both of them. Bennett doesn't always learn from his mistakes and I'm not sure Molden is 100% back from his injury. Maybe Molden has some P/S eligibility left... I'm not sure.

    I think Moulden may shift into a Safety role down the line though.

    I think Clark Harris being cut may keep Zgoniga on the roster because of his long snapping experience. I'm sure there is some concern about Dressen's ability to handle those duties.

    The Molden we saw before the injury could certainly play some FS. However, he looks hestitant out there right now and will be a liability until he can cut it loose again.

    Who cares! It's for Dunta Robinson! I'm happy! Seriously though... It's gotta be Glenn Martinez.

    Hall, Zgonina, JJ, or Thompson. In fact package them all together and trade them for a decent SS with some talent and upside.

    Hard not to cut a CB, its difficult to keep 6. Wouldn't want to cut one of the rookies or Molden. It might end up being Bennett, DRob's apprentice who would have to get the axe. Or they may be trying to move Jacoby to grab a DT or safety so they dont have to end up cutting Martinez to make room for DRob?

    Or Zgonina, but then again they might want to keep him around as a veteran presence on the line and an emergency LS. Its a tough cut to make.

    Andre Hall maybe and bump down to 3 RBs?

    The answer is..... no one.

    "The Texans did not have to release a player to make room for Robinson because they were granted a two-week roster exemption by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell due to Robinson's late reporting date. They will be allowed to have 54 players on their active roster during that time period."

    :thinking: That's interesting. The chronic said that he couldn't practice until they cut someone from the 53 man roster. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/fb/texansfront/6605518.html

    :tearup: I guess the chronic screwed up again! :ohsnap:

    Eventually though, they will have to get down to the 53 man roster. I think it will probably be Zgonina, although, as some of you have said, he's insurance for the LS position. If they cut Thompson, that will give us only 5 LBers, so I don't think they will risk that. JMHO!

    Cut Dunta! [​IMG]

    In all seriousness, maybe we can get a future draft pick for JJ.
    I certainly hope that nobody gets injured that soon, knock on wood! :headhurts:

    It appears the exemption to carry 54 players on the active roster is not exactly what we received (and that never really sounded right/fair anyway). Looks like we just get to consider Dunta inactive for the time being. Once Dunta is activated (presumably for Sunday's game), somebody's got to go.

    I said several weeks ago that if we go into the season with Zgonina on the roster as a DT we're going to be in trouble. It's quite sad that a 39 year old DT can win a roster spot on this team. To me, it just shows the lack of talent we have at the position.

    Anywho, my comment stands. I expect Zgonina to be cut eventually. If not, expect to continue to be gashed in the run game.
