I'm actually ok ish with this. A 6th rounder for someone you've at least seen compete against grown men. If there's a reasonable chance that he just had a string of bad luck but looked like he can contribute that can't be much worse than a 6th rounder

If Caserio identified some kind of arbitrage that we can't see, I'm good with it.

Cashman must have really shined in those 36 snaps the past 2 seasons. He did make 9 tackles. And had a great combine workout in 2019. So, he's got that going for him.

Edit: When I first saw this, I thought it was about Blake Martinez. Figured someone had made a mistake and put Jets instead of Giants. Then I thought, why sign Kirksey if you're trading for Martinez.

Nope. Just another guy that was going to be cut. Who wants an avatar bet that Cashman will still be on the opening day roster?

He was put on IR, six games in for a groin injury.


After he was just activated to the active roster

I believe he also waited until AFTER marriage to have sex so there’s that.

that kind of stuff and culture gives Easterby a chubby.

Exactly.
It's not like a sixth is giving up the world...🙄

No it isn't, but that doesn't mean just throw them away because they're burning a hole in your pocket. Hell, why not just cut the draft to 5 rounds if 6ths and 7ths are that useless?

This was a guy I really liked coming out of Minnesota.

Appeared to be very active and good speed and instincts. Reminds me of Redskins LB Holcomb. Hasn't been able to stay healthy.

So I actually looked into the Cashman fellow, and I’m not terribly upset at the trade now.

He’s got good mobility and he’s a good tackler. Tracks the ball well and can sift through traffic.

I think at the least he could be a special teams standout.

If he’s decent in coverage (he has the mobility for it) he could do well in Lovie’s defense.

But even if he turns out to just be a really good special teams player it would be a good trade.

He would have been an even better waiver wire pickup.

Let’s pretend that Cashman doesn’t have the injury history and has become this special teams demon. He only has one year on his contract. Isn’t it possible to find a guy in the 6th that’s a special teams ace. On a 4 year rookie deal?

But my real concern is what is Caserio going to do with real draft picks? He’s never had them in an unsupervised setting. Would he go, “That David Johnson was a pro bowl RB 3 years ago. He’s definitely better than a stinky 2nd round pick.”

Caserio keeps doubling, tripling, and quadrupling down on a moronic strategy that has yet to work. What other crazy arse ideas does he have in store?

Personally, I was okay with what he did his first go round.

It's a 6rh Rd pick in 2023 dude. It's not the end of the world.
If this were a rare instance i'd tend to agree with you. Instead it's becoming Caserio's mo. He's tossed aside these picks far to often and every time people chime in with, "It's just a 6th (or 7th) round pick Who cares?"

It's a bad practice especially when we end up cutting players so quickly afterwards. At this stage of the building process I think they have more value for us then a contender. How many cuts last year after a trade? 2? 3?

I'm starting to think the Texans are understaffed in their scouting department and have been instructed not to bother with the 6th round.

Maybe they should use Ziprecruiter?

My response to this is to ask how many sixth and Seventh rounders are starters in the NFL?
Why not use picks for NFL ready players and not busts?
Smh.

So a single 6th rounder over two decades ago turned in to a hall of fame player vs how many 6th rounders flipping burgers now in that same time span?

You are welcome to see my following post and search hall of famers / starters in the 6th round or beyond. Lil eye opening.
