RE: Rockets in the NFL/CFL/AFL: 2020
In a new twist to the practice squad rules this year, that I was not previously aware of, each team is allowed to protect 4 PS players from being signed by other teams. With the expanded PS allowing more veterans, this essentially allows a team to stash veteran players for next to no money. In terms of Rockets:

Steelers have protected Jayrone Elliott
Texans have protected Greg Mancz

Looks like the Packers have released Treyvon Hester with an injury settlement, so that makes him fully a free agent I believe.

I wonder if they ever worked out Cody Thompson. It would be cool to have he and Logan playing together again. Of course, in the real world things don't often work out like that. I guess, really, for them to play much together they would both have to be starters which probably would not be happening soon anyway. Nevermind.

While Kareem might be happy to be home in Cleveland...what an awful football team he finds himself on.

Still hoping he gets traded to the Steelers.

Hunt had a decent game with 72 yards rushing and 4 catches. He had more touches than Chub which is interesting.

Gilliam didn't show up in the stat sheets, but there was a sighting at FB on this TD ... although the play went the opposite way.

UT players showing in good and bad ways on MNF.

Ola makes a huge play on the 1st series and stuffs a run for a big loss.

But then Diontae completely misses a punt reception, and turns the ball over on the 2 yard line. Yikes.

DJ is picking up several important 1st downs. Ola is getting a lot of playing time and doing a nice job with pressure. Should have had a sack.

DJ is the target leader for BigBen. Lots of intermediate and underneath routes. JuJu is the superior deep ball and redzone threat. Pitt looks like they will have a pretty good year.

Still hoping he gets traded to the Steelers.

Glad to see he got some big money and was able to return to the NFL. Made some mistakes - and some were overblown. Doesn't matter now unless he has another incident. Hope he doesn't get frustrated with losing in Cleveland and maybe seeing the Chiefs get another ring. At least the money will do a lot to suppress frustrations about what could have been for him in KC. Hope he keeps a positive attitude and continues to be a good representative for Toledo. May interest other great running backs out of the Cleveland area to consider UT when they see what he has accomplished by taking the "backseat" offer to go to UT. Glad he stuck with his commitment, not many do when the big boys come knocking and making late offers when their commits go elsewhere.
