Jeff Maehl replaces Derrick Mason on Houston roster

Houston Texans 2011 Headshots

Unexpectedly, the Texans dumped receiver Derrick Mason on Monday.  As expected, they’ve promoted former Oregon wideout Jeff Maehl from the practice squad.

Maehl, who caught 77 passes in 2010, was regarded by Tony Dungy of NBC’s Football Night In America as one of the most intriguing players after the lockout.  That’s high praise, and it could mean that the Texans soon will be enjoying significant contributions from Maehl.

The Texans filled Maehl’s position on the practice squad with receiver Juaquin Iglesias.

    Maehl started off playing defense at UO, wish him well in the pros. I don’t know how much he’s going to contribute with Yates at the helm and this deep into the season

    No word on who will take Iglesias’ spot on the concert circuit.

    Mahel is a talented receiver. the fact that he’s not a burner is the only reason he wasn’t drafted. just go watch tape of the NCAA title game last year. kid can ball.

    Juaquin hopes to become the first member of his family in nearly 100 years to earn a living without having to sing interminable, sappy, songs, and wiggle his eyebrows suggestively.

    He could be good if Aaron Rodgers was throwing the ball to him.

    Hope it works out for him another Nor Cal kid. There’s tallent up here but colleges dont go past Sacramento. This area isn’t the most affluent so kids are very tough and have the determination and drive to succeed. You have to work very hard to get noticed. Just ask the best qb in the game.
