NFL: Who's not on
the roster anymore after Week 7
The week the following teams
released players Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons and St. Louis
Who got cut this week from the football teams? We start with the
winless St. Louis Rams (0-7), who released offensive
guard Claude Terrell after he was arrested and charged with
assault. According to the police reports, Claude Terrell was
arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault-family violence,
after assaulting his wife in a hotel in Texas. Terrell's legal
problems are now quite serious, as he was still on probation for
another family member assault in 2006. At this time the Rams
have not said who will fill in Terrell's spot in the roster. St.
Louis Rams are playing the Cleveland Browns (3-3) on Sunday, the
Rams are underdog at
Bookmaker with odds +145, the
spread is favoring the Browns - 3 points.
The Houston Texans (3-4) cut running
back Samkon Gado on Tuesday, after he failed to get the numbers
previously achieved with the Packers. The Texans signed Gado
from Green Bay in 2006 in exchange for Vernand Morency, after
the rookie running back started in five games for the Packers
and ran for 582 yards and 6 touchdowns. But his game with the
Texans was far from perfect, Gado started in three games this
season, rushing 18 times for a total of 46 yards. Gado's spot on
the roster will be filled in by recently signed Adimchinobe
Echemandu. The Houston Texans are scheduled to play the San
Diego Chargers, but NFL is sill debating the future of this
due to the California wildfires.
And finally, yesterday the Atlanta
Falcons (1-6) surprised many by announcing that they are
releasing veteran defensive tackle Grady Jackson. No explanation
was given about the release, coach Bobby Petrino is scheduled to
address the move later today. Grady Jackson has started in 22 of
the last 23 games with 19 tackles and one sack this season.
Washburn rookie Trey Lewis will take Jackson's place as a
starter. The Falcons are off this week.
