  1. I’d like to see Brown and Bullough back in Houston somehow. Even though Brown has been around, I know he doesn’t have 2 accrued seasons. He should be eligible for PSq, shouldn’t he? And Worthy will probably land on the PSq. He needs a little time but look like he knows how to play football.

  2. I do believe Brown should be eligible for PS, provided he hasn’t been on another PS for more than 6 weeks. I’ve been meaning to research if he is eligible, but we will find out on Sunday.
