Texans cut Domanick Willams (Davis), and David Carr
 
Quote:

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Texans have cut Carr and Davis (who is now known as Domanick Williams).
Domanick Williams was such a promising player, whose career was derailed by injuries.

As for Carr, I guess no one wanted to trade a day-2 pick for him.

Thank goodness we aren't trading for Carr.

hard to stay healthy when youre getting tackled before the hand off can even take place.

The year they get a decent oline, he goes on IR. That sucks.

bsaza2358 03-23-2007 02:59 PM

Sad for Williams. He was incredibly productive behind a suspect OLine and 8 men in the box to stop him. That knee injury just completely killed him. It's too bad.

I would certainly welcome him to the Dolphins, I'm kind of worried though that maybe the Texans released him because a Trent Green deal is done and they couldn't work anything out with the Dolphins.

I expect Carr to sign with someone soon. I think either the Dolphins, Browns, Raiders, or Vikings might take a flyer on him.

And I really liked Davis. He showed a lot of potential but just couldn't stay healthy.

I'm sure Carr is worth a day two pick, it was his contract that probably lead to his release. Of course no team is going to swallow a 6 million or so cap figure for a guy that probably won't be a starter.

2 guys that no more than 2 years ago, everyone thought would be solid pros now.

Too bad about Domanick he was from outside my hometown and one of my favorite former LSU Tigers. I'm glad he was able to get paid before he got hurt.

It's called cleaning house. Bravo!

I think both guys will be picked up. With Williams, it'll depend on how things look health wise, so it may not be until much later.

I still think Carr and the Vikings are a good fit. Of course, the Raiders may step in now that they don't have to offer anything up. That being said, I don't believe that signing Carr will significantly impact their drafting plans.

Interesting, both could could be solid pickups. Anybody know what shape Williams is in now with his knee?

Moses 03-23-2007 03:28 PM

Wow, those are two huge cuts. The Texans are in complete rebuild mode.

The reason Texans released Carr and DW is that both of these players meant great deal to the Texans Organization and to Mr. Bob McNair personally. Rather then trading them for the picks, Texans simply cut him so both of these players can sign with a team of their choice.

Read the Houston Chronicle and see what Mr. McNair had to say about Carr. This shows class on the part of the Texans and it gives both of these players to sign with the team of their choices.

From business perspective, it doesn't show very well acumen but Texans decided to take the financially hit and move on. This is about as close as they will ever come to admitting they made a mistake in giving extension to Carr last year and they should have selected VY last year.

This decision was not Rick Smith to make as this decision was made by the owner of the Texans Mr. McNair himself. Carr had asked to be released, if Texans didn't have plans for him and his wish was granted by McNair.

Class all the way ............. Now we will see Carr with some team in the back up role.

Panthers should pick up Domanick, that way between him and DeShaun they'll have 1 RB for a whole season to split carries with DeAngelo

Now if the Texans would just cut their MLB...

Carr and Davis were the planned "cornerstones" of that franchise. It obviously didn't work out.

That's what I was thinking. You have to build before you rebuild.

I would have 0 interest in Davis, but Carr on the other hand...

I'd be all for bringing in Carr and then trading Rodgers for Moss. :D

Exactly what I was indicating. I'm not big on trading Rodgers, but if we were able to pick up Carr I'd be fine. I still think Carr could be good, but he needed to get out of Houston. Then we would get Moss and still have a QB to take over when God leaves.

BigDawg819 03-23-2007 03:58 PM

Wow this time last year the Texans were formulating the excuses that they didn't need Reggie Bush nor Vince Young because of these guys and now they release them.....

gbpackers0065 03-23-2007 04:02 PM

Packers must sign williams!!

The Legend 03-23-2007 04:04 PM

D-Unit 03-23-2007 04:11 PM
