08:04 PM ET 10.30 | The Houston Texans cut three rookies two weeks ago after they'd reportedly been caught in their team hotel smoking pot prior to the team's Week 7 game vs the Kansas City Chiefs. The most notable cut was Sam Montgomery, a third-round pick out of LSU, who never showed the work ethic or desire to make an impact for the Texans. It didn't help he was moved to outside linebacker, even though his skill set didn't translate to outside linebacker as hoped, and he eventually was moved back to defensive end, where Montgomery wasn't getting any playing time. According to reports, Montgomery visited the Oakland Raiders recently. Adding to that, running back Cierre Wood and outside linebacker Willie Jefferson, the other two rookies cut by the Texans for allegedly smoking pot, worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

It would be great if I only gave effort when my company gave me my strongest suited work challenges.

Hope to see them in the drive thru soon.

Why are other teams looking at these players when they didn't take their NFL opportunity seriously???

Otis, darling, come to Colorado for fully legal, high quality inventory --- and a more reliable team.

How many of these " they have talent but the maturity and decision making skills of an 8 year old" will the NFL give chances to before the realization that a certain subset of the football population is only able to play street football in the 'hood?

Sam you do not light up before a game, you light up after the game so you can relax and enjoy your after game meal.

If you are having trouble sleeping before a game in another city. See the team physician and see what he suggests.

Or Seattle, home of the freaking amazing medical strain known as Firecrotch. With that stuff in town I'm surprised the Seahawks don't sleep through the entire season. You know, instead of just road games.

A pot smoking defensive football player out of LSU? I feel like I've seen this before somewhere...
