    Buchanon was released because of multiple injuries...he's young, and uber-talented, but injuries got the best of him, I'd love to grab him cheap and see if he can contribute next season...

    Texans release Phillip Buchanon

    I wouldnt mind taking a chance at him. He'd be a better option than Faulk returning punts and could help out our secondary in certain situations

    Lousy? He had 6 picks in his second season. His numbers are better then anyone we have. At least he can catch a damn ball thrown his way unlike our current lineup.

    That would be a great pickup. Though the patriots never seem to pick up the sexy kind of player. I still believe Phillip falls under that category cause he was the man in college and a weapon in oakland. I already had him on my madden roster months ago and in my franchise he made the pro bowl second in interceptions to Geno.

    Yeah, he can give up a ton of TDs by dropping coverage to jump routes. Numbers look good, all right. Hurts the team, though.

    Better than anything we have? Yeah, right. Like I really want guys that couldn't make it with Oakland or the Texans. Gimme Duane Starks back first.

    yeah...the Texans have soooo much talent and depth that they simply couldn't afford a roster spot for the amazing buchanon...

    sign him quick...:bricks:

    And you probably thought Mike Vrabel was lousy when we signed him. Probably thought, big deal, who's this stiff ? You never ever know, sometimes just the gratitude of getting a chance makes a player turn around his career. Hundreds of players in the history of the NFL have had the shaky start Buchanon has had, some turn it around when given the chance. Never say never. For every David Terrell, there's a Mike Vrabel.

    Yeah but he is a definite upgrade just cause how explosive he is on returns when he is healthy. We always say BB is the best coach is the business imagine what he could do with that raw talent. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to try out who knows he could be the shutdown corner we been missing, and actually make a big play by not just catching the ball but running with it too. You can laugh at the idea but i'd be all for giving him a shot at making a difference he is still very young and probally hungry for success.

    Not at all. The book on Vrabel is that he was a high-motor, talented guy stuck behind a logjam of superb linebackers in Pittsburgh. Remember, Belichick picked him up as a restricted free agent and pretty much knew he was getting an up 'n coming young 3-4 LB/DE type player who would be a contributor with the Patriots.

    yeah that's why oakland traded him and he's being released. this is a re-birth of the ahmad carrol threads. think about it...the texans are lousy and they dropped him.

    he doesn't know the defensive scheme which is complex and you're gonna throw him into the lineup.

    i say give willie andrews a chance at returning punts

    Oh, I see !! And Buchanon has absolutely NO talent ? Please, get over yourself. I'm sure, like most Pats fans, you were saying Mike Vrabel ? The only reason I remember Vrabel is because I was watching Andy Katzenmoyer in 1999 and hoping we drafted him. That's another story, be careful what you wish for....lol. Ahhh, what might've been, actually turned out ok, because Bruschi went to the middle. I really thought Katzenmoyer was going to be the player Urlacher turned out to be.

    i totally do not agree with that. there are far more busts than stories that work out.

    i do not agree for every david terrell there is a mike vrabel. look how many get rister spots versus how many get cut.

    I do agree therie are more busts then booms, beisel was constantly compared to the vrabel pickup. but his punt returns alone may be worth looking at. But the open roster spot is going to Moss anyways ;)

    He had 6 picks in 2002 because no one threw to Woodson's side. When healthy, he has excellent speed and great ball skills. Hes certainly not mr. run support. Rumor is that he also has an oversized attitude. The fact remains that BB must like his depth in the secondary by letting Poteat go. I'm still weirded out by BB keeping Pass on the PUP. He seemed to inference that he was healthy. Whos gonna get the 53rd roster spot then?
