Texans Work Out Nine Players...None of Them Are LBs

According to the National Football Post, the Texans are looking to add some LB help in place of the injured DeMeco Ryans. So, nine players worked out for the team today. The only hitch is that none of them were LBs. Nope, five running backs (Javarris Williams, Alphonso Smith, Clifton Smith, Chris Jennings and Louis Rankin), Two quarterbacks (Tom Brandstater and Jonathan Crompton) and lastly....wait for it...two tight ends (Rob Myers and Derek Schouman)! It would appear the team has lost all faith in Steve Slaton, so that explains the running backs. Kubiak keeps talking about how Matt Leinart is "pushing" Dan Orlovsky for the backup job, so the quarterbacks make some sense if Dan is about to get released. But more tight ends? Seriously?

Aaron Schobel Works Out For Texans, But Will Not Be Signed...Huh?!?

Per Pancakes: After weeks of speculation that he would sign with the Texans, DE Aaron Schobel worked out for the team but won't be signing. This is very confusing. As bfd speculated, he must be out of shape or they were far apart in the money. I have no idea. It is a pretty vague tweet by Pancakes and he hasn't added anything yet. More on this as it develops... UPDATE: Okay, Pancakes has explained on the Comicle that the team and Schobel couldn't come to an agreement on the money. Therefore, he will remain retired. UPDATE #2: Mark Berman is now reporting (with quotes from Schobel) that the workout didn't go so well. "It wasn't meant to be. We couldn't agree on terms. They saw me for what I am today and not for what I can be. It's over. For me to say they made a mistake or I made a mistake, who knows? They have a lot of good players and are on the right track. It would have been hard for my ego to be a role player." - Aaron Schobel
