    Hill cannot practice until after game 6. He is on PUP. He can practice now.

    Golston earned playing time. He is getting better every week. Who would want to stop progress like that?

    Man, must be getting old. Was a big fan of his when he was coming out of Illinois.

    Me too,....remember him well at Illinois. Not a TRUE killer,..more like an accomplice. But you need them too. He is someone that can thrive if he has a couple others around him that can get after the passer.

    Someone who wants to win a super bowl. Golston will be lucky if he is ever as much of a factor as a pass rusher as Mercilus is now. He’s a younger Dorance Armstrong. Which don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about getting a functional rotation player in the mid rounds…but he just has about 0 impact traits. Mercilus can still make an impact as a pass rusher 20 or so snaps a game

    If ur gonna make a move its during the bye week so he can make adjustments. Call the Falcons grab Grady Jarrett and sign up Mercilus and move forward on the practices

    I would say it is a coin flip right now.

    And why exactly are the Texans cutting this immense talent? Does he have a salary guarantee for 2022 like Jaylon?

    I’d cut Armstrong in a second for Mercilus.

    That would not be a wise move.

    Still, additional help rushing the passer could be very helpful for us, and Mercilus is merciless with QBs.

    Right. Like every single player on the roster is uncuttable. There’s probably a dozen players you can cut for extra pass rush help.

    Conditioning isnt his problem, he got down to 330 pre draft so he is in excellent shape. He is just a mediocre player
