Our A-Rod... (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/wire?section=nfl&id=1855863)

His clip file, maintained by the Texans media department, dwarfs that of several established players, including some who have started throughout the franchise's two-year history. A major local bilingual magazine that targets the Hispanic community prominently features Rodriguez in its most recent edition.

All this for a player who did not make it out of training camp a year ago and actually was invited by the "Bull Pen" rowdies who populate the north end zone seats to tailgate with them and attend a game last season.

He is a great guy with a great family! It would be awesome if he made the team!!!!

He is a sentimental favorite to be sure, but realistically he has a better chance of climbing Mount Everest than he does of making the team.

Good story. Mike always keeps his ears open and picks up on things many other writers miss.

Antonio is a great guy. I would love to see him make the team this year.

His family has been fantastic in supporting him and they are really fun to be with in the tailgate. It is always good to see them.
