Default Holliday CUT....

per Twitter, Holliday has been cut and Barrett Ruud (LB) has been signed.
Twitter McClain and Scurfield

Good...

Also elevated G Cody White from practice squad. Obviously Cush went to IR.
Ruud was good back in the day,4 straight 100+ tackles from 2006-2010. Not bad depth if Dobbins cant handle it and Sharpton never gets back to normal..

I would have given him to the bye, but this is probably for the best

Great move. He was eating up a roster spot.
Manning and Martin can take over from here; and probably with better results.

Default cut

I think all of us saw this coming. If he isn't picked up, can we then return him to the practice squad?

I think it was more lack of kick return production rather than punt. Punters kicked away from him. He'll have another job soon, has good stuff on film from preseason.

I am surprised they never tried to use Holliday in games, especially given how often they have tried to use reverses and end arounds with Posey and Martin.

But I have always suspected that the Texans whenever they needed a spot would look toward Holliday unless he made some decent returns. But the fact they did cut him to sign a guard, seems to indicate they are worried about either Smith or Caldwell and with Jones already splitting time and being a rookie himself, I worry about what this means for our o-line.

Edit: No way, Kubiak is stupid enough to risk Manning on returns, especially with Demps being out for a few weeks.

Dont know the in and outs of the practice squad but there is now one spot available on the practice squad since they moved up White.

Please no Manning on kickoff. Too risky for me for a defensive starter. It'll probably happen tho
