Then it's on the FO to figure something out. That's why they make the big bucks. Unless they're content on Watson holding the Texans and their salary cap hostage.
They can't just make options up out of thin air. If they want to maximize his value they have to hold him. If they want to take pennies on the dollar then that's their business. But he's holding the trump card as long as they don't play him.

If it weren't for the legal stuff I believe he'd been done gone. But the situation as it is, not much they can do.

We're playing this season with a 52 man roster.
I'm too lazy to reread the new rules regarding the PS this year, but I think with this format, it doesn't makes any difference.

Agreed, but I don't want him to play another down for the Texans org. If it causes Cal to lose a few millions, then that's the price Cal has pay for getting in bed with this POS.
Big Ben was accused of rape and still on the roster. So you cant stand to wat
They're that dumb

They thought it was no big deal and it wasn't until women started filing complaints in mass.

Cal gambled on his most marketable player and lost. Like I said, some on this MB knew some of the things he was doing long before these complaints came out.
Nobody on a mssg knew! Nobody!

Since we're not playing for anything meaningful it doesn't matter.

But it's still a disadvantage to have one less roster spot, unless you're void of talent & don't mind leaving someone you want to keep exposed on the practice squad.

Now the new IR rules help.

?

No charges were ever filed. There's going to be a big difference as soon as this goes to a grand jury.

1 girl had a down to fvck t- shirt on. His security guard a for LEO was standing guard outside the bathroom.

I guess that's why his nickname is Big Ben, she got more than she bargained for.

These are totally different situations and trying to compare them is in a weird way trying to justify the 3rd string QB's perversions. IMHO

BTW, No, I dont like Ben either.

Just curious who does everyone think that 53rd guy would be?

That's not how I remember the new PS rules.
You still keep him on the main roster.
You can still bring guys up from PS.
Each team can now dress 48 players on game day instead of 46.

why do you care? The Texans will always suck b/c they don't spend money, Cal and the Mcnair family only care about money, you're giving up your season tickets b/c & none of them know what they're doing anyway.........according to you.

I mean why care if he suits up for a team you obviously hate....makes no sense right? :thinking:

Depends on what side of the fence you're on. Those who just want him gone for whatever reason say that 53rd roster spot is preventing us from bringing on another pro bowler & it's a big deal....Those of us who know better understand that whomever it would be likely wouldn't be a difference maker and would most likely be a ST or 4th string OL or something.

There’s a chance that Glazier’s story might’ve had some truth to it.

Ever watch a car accelerate 0-60 then slam on the brakes?

Watson announces he’s never playing for the Texans again and I’m fairly certain that’s when NFL GM’s came out of the gates like they were running the Derby.

I’m sure they were all tapping the brakes when the first allegation broke in the media.

When additional sexual misconduct accusations hit the headlines…..I’m sure that’s when the brakes were slammed using 2 feet.

I posted this before but here are some of the 2021 practice squad rules. You can protect up to 4 player a week.

1. Expansion of practice squads to 16 players, including up to six who have more than two accrued seasons.
2. The ability to protect up to four practice squad players per week from being signed by other teams.
3. Elevation of up to two practice squad players to the active roster, without removing any current players, before 4 p.m. ET the day before a game.
4. Elevation of an additional practice squad player within 90 minutes before kickoff in the event of a late COVID-19 positive test result.

------------------------------------------

IR for 2021.

1. Players placed on injured reserve can return after three weeks, rather than six as in normal seasons.
2. Removal of the limit for how many players can be activated from injured reserve.

I renewed my season tickets and although I'm fully vaccinated I'm choosing to sit out this season. BTW, I dont believe the vaccine is what it's being sold to be, but for work purposes getting the vaccine was a necessary evil.

Also for the 1st time since the teams inception I actually like most of what Caserio has done this offseason. I know the McNair's have never spent money but I'm hoping Cal was telling the truth when he said he was going to let Caserio fully run the football side of the operation and I tend to believe Cal because of all of the turnover in the FO. If Cal wanted to play it safe Rootes and company would still be employed down on Kirby. Plus I believe if Bob McNair was still alive the POS would've already been flushed from the org. (You dont mess with the brand) Since this hasn't happened it makes me think Cal's letting Caserio run the show.

Anyone have any information about this "trade offer"? I don't see how it's legit and we passed on it.

There's been a whole back and forth about this, about whether Glazer has good contacts or not, about whether this is accurate or not, about whether this offer was from a team DW wanted to go to and would waive the no trade clause, yadda yadda yadda.
