Always interesting to see what ex-Texans get released.

Alan Ball, DeVier Posey and Andrew Gardner all got cut loose.

Don't see any of them getting invited back for a reunion tour.

Too much injury history imo... and too old
JB, I too would be very concerned about the particular injury history he has experienced. In Sept of last year, following initial failed conservative epidural treatment, he underwent a lumbar microdiscectomy..................6 weeks later, he required a 2nd lumbar microdiscectomy. In addition, his doctors have directed him to lose weight. His natural playing weight has always been around 325 pounds. His comparison level of effectiveness at his new 300 pound playing weight would have to be questionable.

This is the same potential progression that concerns me about Watt.

His area of microfracture surgery was one of very small dimensions. So unusually small and in a very favorable area of the knee that he was able to return to practice after only 5 1/2 months. This could have still very well led to his back problem as a compensatory injury. This is not to mention he has not taken a snap since 2014.
