So Rodgers was so unimpressive as a WR that the Packers drafted 3 a year after taking Amari in the 3rd. His cutting was due to fumbles in the return game. Still, this is a good use of the waiver wire to get a really young player and see if he has something to develop on either special teams or in the slot.

The fumbling ability works right into the tanking strategy. :brando:

Looks like he can play outside some too, after watching those highlights.

Welcome to the neighborhood Mr. Rodgers.

Its cool this time of year, get yourself some sweaters and make sure you have on the proper footwear every day.

I believe this is the beginning of something special.

It truly is a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor.

One advantage the Texans have over most other teams. ST coach Frank Ross. The only coach on this team I have faith can field a competent unit and develop players to perform their best.

If we see Rodgers playing ST it means Ross approved it which means he thinks he can fix whatever is broken with this player.

The Packers have had one of the worst ST units in the league going back to 2016 according to the article i’ll link below. While they are prioritizing offense and defense the Texans have been churning the back end of the roster finding the best ST players they can. The losers of their ST battles play offense and defense. Everybody knows us Texans fans only tune in for the ST part of the game where this team is ELITE!

Let's see, Green Bay, desperate for receivers, Aaron Rodgers at QB.
Houston, desperate for everything, Davis Mills at QB.
Yep, this guy definitely feels like we'll have something.
Gotta start somewhere - or would you suggest we sit on our hands?🤔

Not saying you don’t bring in players or make waiver claims or whatever, just commenting more on the reaction of thinking he can be something with the Texans.

He had Aaron Rodgers. You think the Texans can fix him?

The problem he had in Green Bay was fumbling as a returner. Not problems as a receiver or his attitude or work ethic. Keep him away from returning duties

8 catches in 26 pro games suggest Amari wasn't thought of much as a WR or slot by the Packers. I am for these types of waiver claims, Rodgers has done as next to nothing as realistically possible.

Can you imagine what it must feel like to be cut by a team and to lose your job in the NFL and THEN find out that the team that claimed you was the Houston Texans? Talk about a kick in a groin when you just had the rug pulled out from under you..
& then even they don't target you on Sunday
