    Texans cut projected FS starter Chris Clemons
    [​IMG]
    Texans released FS Chris Clemons.

    The move is a big surprise after Houston gave Clemons $450,000 guaranteed in March. As Reshad Jones will open the season on suspension for the Dolphins, Miami might want to look into bringing Clemons back. The Texans' free safety job will likely now go to Kendrick Lewis, a longtime Romeo Crennel favorite.

    Could be a possible signing for better secondary depth

    This makes no sense. I was pounding to sign the guy for a while, and I still think he'd be worth it to bring in. Just a solid solid player overall.

    Really wanted this guy as a cheap FA. Wonder what the issue is. Crennel favoring "his" player? Injury? Under preforming?

    Crennel has a habit of going after "his guys". He did that a lot in KC as well.

    Looks like they are going to bring vet safety Danieal Manning back to their team. So bringing back one of their former players to replace Clemons.

    You would think they would try to keep Clemons though for good depth then and cut somebody like Shiloh Keo.

    I would want to give Chris Clemons a look. How much would it cost to give Clemons a tryout. Do we have to cut somebody.

    Never understood the love for a safety that only had 4 INTs and 2 forced fumbles in 5 NFL seasons. Rams need someone that get/force some turnovers.

    Yeah. Don't hear a lot of positive things about Keo.

    And someone did it on your post too. May be just a mistake but there could be a troll.

    I'd hate to jump to those conclusions. I once hit the inappropriate button by mistake myself. I didn't know I did it until it was pointed out to me by another poster. Still, it is suspicious isn't it.

    I hope the Rams make some cap space. There seems to be a decent amount of talent becoming available that could help this team out.

    I'd be all for the Rams taking a look but I'm not sure we have the cap flexibility too. Clemons is a solid football player. Not flashy but solid.

    Not a ballhawk, but can get to the ball and make a tackle. I'm not clamoring for the first name that comes along but I am desperately concerned about the back half of our defense.
