    The Texans have released wide receiver Kenny Stills. He's an unrestricted free agent

    My bad, the report I read had him as a UFA.
    We have no chance with waivers

    OK I will let you get your hopes up high and then let them be squashed! :rolleyes: :laugh:

    There is a chance that nobody wants to claim him and pick up the $2M he would be due for the rest of the season, but I doubt it.

    But yes, if some how he drops to the Packers....grab him!

    At the end of this season. If he clears waivers a team will have to sign him to a new contract.

    His Dad was a former Badger and Packer. Maybe that will help bring him to Green Bay.

    Obviously he'll be claimed, but the Pack should still put a claim in for him. Someone will block us, that'd just be good strategy.

    Only thing I saw was that it was a mutual agreement between him and the team.

    Kenny wants to play for a contender. He has for quite a while. He thought he was getting that when he left Miami for Houston (via trade) but it hasn't played out that way. While obviously on waivers anyone can pick him up but I think some GMs knowing that a player only wants to play for a contender will steer clear, no need to willingly bring locker room issues to a team that might have a litany of other issues.

    So how does it work? If a team claims him but he won't play for them (why risk covid if a junk team signs you) is he forced to play for them until the end of the year?

    Then there was this...

    My name is Kenny Stills and I'm tough as gristle.

    I make my best hits long after the whistle.

    I read that the Texans fired one of their PR people and apparently Stills had some negative things to say about the way it was handled.

    He seems to be very outspoken and not afraid to be controversial. I'm not saying he is a bad team mate but it appears that he can cause some PR nightmares for the team. I'd still like to see him in GB though.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Kenny will play for whoever picks him up. But being picked up on waivers his contract is essentially guaranteed, so let's just say the new team that might not be a contender may not get their "money's worth". On the other hand sometimes players ball out to get signed by a contender the following year to a decent contract. It could go either way.

    Honestly, this late in the year....only teams making a playoff push would be interested in him. Otherwise GMs/HCs would rather just continue to evaluate the talent they already have and address roster concerns in the Draft and Free Agency. If Kenny is playing for a loser, he's just a 5-week rental at best.

    "Winning cures everything."

    I also don't think he's a bad teammate but he went to the Playoffs for the first time in his career last year. Knowing that he's all but guaranteed postseason action coming to Green Bay, I'm sure he'll be a model citizen.

    I wouldn't be surprised to the see the Eagles grab him. They are in a decent waiver position, need WR's and at 3-6-1, right in the hunt for winning that pathetic East.

    So if Stills lands in Green Bay, what are the odds of him getting his current Jersey Number? :coffee:

    I'm pretty sure he's flexible. He wore #84 in New Orleans, #10 in Miami, and #12 in Houston. For good measure, he wore #4 at Oklahoma and La Costa Canyon.

    My guess is he wears #11 or #18.

    Stills hasn't actually put up impressive numbers with the Texans over the past two seasons. With it most likely taking a bit to get used to the system in Green Bay he would probably be relegated to being the #4 receiver behind Adams, Lazard and MVS.

    It could work out but some skepticism should be allowed.
