RTC: Cutcliffe doesn't believe Foster's story

By Tania Ganguli

Reading the coverage of the Texans...

David Cutcliffe, who was the offensive coordinator at Tennessee in 2006 and 2007, disputed Arian Foster's account of his time at Tennessee and the extra benefits he said he took, writes Laura Keeley of the Raleigh News and Observer. His quotes include this quippy line: "On gameday, when you go back to your dorm, you usually got $15 in meal money, and you could buy, I don’t know, 10 tacos maybe." Cutcliffe, now Duke's coach, called Foster's a "weak interview" and said "Arian never looked hungry" to him. He also says football players are not abused and "nobody is really getting rich off this." Perhaps except all those coaches who were the highest paid public employees in their states as of May?

Kicker Randy Bullock struggled in the Texans' first two games, but Sunday he started with the shortest field goal he's attempted during the regular season and followed by making all three of his attempts in that game. Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle caught up with Bullock and punter Shane Lechler at a charity event yesterday. Bullock saw Sunday's game in Baltimore as a rebound game.

The Texans drafted outside linebacker Sam Montgomery in the third round for his pass-rushing skills, but are shifting him inside to defensive end, writes Will Grubb of Sports Radio 610. Antonio Smith spoke about the move on the station, saying Montgomery didn't look comfortable standing up.
