WIP in Philadelphia is the radio station the orginized the bus trip to the draft to boo the Eagles pick if it was anyone but Ricky Williams. Turned out to be McNabb. I know of no one with any knowledge of sports up here that tunes in for anything other then laughs. Take it for what it is worth.

Buchannon's cap number comes strictly from salary. His bonus has to be paid by the team that trades him (which is why we can't just Trade off Wade's high salary). THerefore if Buchannon is cut by us, we take no dead money

Buchanon's cap number is somewhere in the 800k range, with around $6,000 of that counting as bonus money...We could cut him and only have to eat $6,000...

Man, I'm hoping:
1) that's not true........ I don't know where I got it in my head, that his cap# was high.
2) Kubiak rates him higher than Faggins.Or maybe thinks he'll make a good FS, if we draft a corner.

Sorry, I just figured I would go over to the Eagles message board and see if they are flipping out and they have 1 thread on Moulds that was started on March 13th with a total of 342 replies. While we have a thread going on here with over 800 replies and they put no importance on the WIP report.

http://www.philly.com/mld/dailynews/14219928.htm

Article by Rich Hoffman in the Philly Daily News today. The fans in Philly very mistrusting of the organization. I heard WIP this morning on the ride in to work. The comment was an offhanded remark by Angelo Cataldi. He said that it looks like they will be announcing that Moulds will be a Houston Texan. No sources. Just him venting. 610 kinda creates a environment of getting fans into a lather of frustration. Caltaldi is an entertainer, not a news man. He has admitted as much. He pushes people's buttons for ratings.

The pulse in Philly is that the Eagles will not get Moulds nor will they get Javon Walker. It is frustration. Not saying he won't be here, but just putting it into perspective.

But to even things out a little bit the posters on that board attack all the sources of rumors they dont agree with no matter how reliable the source. This one in particular because they don't understand why Moulds would choose us over them. They have a real problem with him choosing us because the view us as a seriously inferior team. They keep saying why would he choose to play with Car when he can play with McNabb.

"My thoughts are that I would never waste even two seconds of my life listening to those twits on WIP. I think I just gave up too much of my time posting about them. They will never be more than a soap opera sports channel - kind of what ESPN has been trying to become recently."

They're wrong because for Moulds it is all about the coin. It could certainly be argued that the Eagles are not the primary Super Bowl contender in the NFC. Some think they'll have trouble in the NFC East, let alone compete for a Super Bowl. With or without Moulds, they has some holes to fill.

He caught 81 balls last year with Losman. He can and would catch at least that in Houston and probably more. He is in a "get out of Buffalo" mode right now. Anywhere is greener grass for Eric.

Moulds would not be driving up the price for the Eagles. The Texans will set the price. The Eagles will not go over it. There will be no bidding war between the two teams. This isn't the Orlando Pace scenario.

Who knows they cited the philly source but they also said this: "Local 2 sports has been in contact with people close to the Eric Moulds negotiations with the Eagles." Now I don't know if it is true or not but it certainly implies they did some digging of their own. And this news affiliate (KPRC Channel 2 Houston) hasn't been known to put out false info ahead of time just in order to be the first to the scoop. So at this time I will remain cautiously optimstic aboout this.

What a colossal waste of time for all of us...800+ replies and thousands of views all because some shock jock in Philly is trying to get a rise out of his listeners. Looks like his name and fame are getting spread here in Texas, too.

Why wasn't this thread killed off when it became clear that this was more rumor than fact? Heck, it's not even a rumor. It's actually more like a backhanded comment about the Eagles organization.

At this point in Moulds career this will more than likely be his last contract. The money will be there, I do not think Philly is lowballing moulds as much as lowballing Buffalo with a 5th round pick.

If you ask any player in the NFL what they play for... To win a superbowl. I think in the short run Eagles have that chance, although I know if Kube keeps going in the same direction as now, Texans will be fighting there within 2-3 years.

Money is important to Moulds but I think a ring is just as big for him.

One thing that keeps getting to me...
if moulds is unhappy with his role in Buffalo sliding as it seems to #2 and not getting the attention on the field he would like, Why would he come to Houston to be the #2 and never be the #1 as long as AJ is here?? Especially if you look at Philly's WR core he could be the #1 there.

This just seems fishy to me...

03-30-2006, 10:38 AM
with us supposedly outbidding the eagles remember deal probably will not be more than the deal they offered to givens being 5yrs and $18mill...is that overpaying a receiver of moulds talents i don't think so...he hasn't had any major injuries...it's been his frustration with the qb situation at buffalo and his lack of confidence in a qb that talks like a girl...i'm sorry but if ya'll have ever heard losman speak he has a very girly voice and it's hard to believe a football team can have confidence in a guy like that

With all of todays players the saying "I'm all about the ring" has almost become a cliche and basic self promoting and image marketing. I mean what do you expect them to say "I'm all about the money". If they do that they are just going to come off looking like a jackass.

Here is the thing though we know AJ was the #1 on Cass's and Dom's team. But this is now Kubiac's team and pretty much everything is up in the air now whether we like it or not. We know with the current cast AJ is a #1. How do we know that Kubiac isn't promising this (the #1 reciever slot) to Moulds for the short term to get him to agree to a contract.

justtxyank
03-30-2006, 10:52 AM
Agreed with above. AJ may not necessarily be the number 1 guy on this team next season whether he is officially named that or not.

The other thing is that Moulds had some serious falling out with the team last year that went beyond his desire to get the ball, etc. And even though they changed coaches, it carries over, similarly to how we had to let go of Coleman and Walker.

Moulds just gets open, runs good routs, catches everything thrown at him, and can be counted on in clutch situations. Na. He can't help win division tittles, playsoffs, superbowls.

I will say it again, Carr, AJ, Moulds, DD, Bush, Putzier, Mathis as our burner punt and kickoff returner. I would match that up any day with Manning, Harrison, Wayne, Stockley, who's there running back? Don't have one!? Sucks to be them. Ha Ha.

Look out, Texans may suprise some people this year.

If the Bears can go 3-13 and then 12-4 with a division win, why not the Texans?

I think Kube is the type of coach that is straight forward and through the early workouts last week I am sure he talked about his gameplan and hmmm a young #1 Probowl WR not even in his prime with Much more talent than Moulds is going to be asked to step back for someone that is only going to be here for probably 2 years maybe 3? Common sense tells me otherwise.

I agree why not if the Bears can... That is the beauty of free agency today. It gives the opportunity to strike lightning in a bottle. Kube has made great strides already with this offseason and adding moulds would be great. The next step is to draft quality players that can step in if one gets injured and not see a dropoff int talent. that is what the Patriots have done over the years. Not to mention not one individual takes the spotlight nor cares as they are playing for the bigger picture (Dynasty of superbowl wins)

You're right. Moulds has proven to be a top notch starter while Givens has been a good a complimentary receiver in the New England system.

03-30-2006, 11:52 AM
Moulds will require AT LEAST a top notch corner, and usually safety help, while Givens could probably be covered one on one. If nothing else, having Moulds will stop the safeties from blitzing so often!

Moulds Done Deal to Texans
Posted: March 29, 2006
Hi folks. Local 2 sports has been in contact with people close to the Eric Moulds negotiations with the Eagles. Late Wednesday afternoon The "WIP" sports radio station in Philly is reporting that Moulds and his agent have come to terms with the Texans on a contract extension. Now both the Texans and Bills are working out details on a trade that will get him to Houston.

More tonight on KPRC Local 2 Sports at 10

ESPN reports deal could come today (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2390132)

Talks between the Bills and two teams are heating up to a point that an Eric Moulds trade could happen as early as Thursday.

The Texans and Eagles appear to have the lead and both teams are expecting quick decisions.

Bills general manager Marv Levy has talked with Moulds and even though he wants him to take a pay cut and stay, he's willing to part ways with the wide receiver in a trade.

Moulds will have to restructure his contract for the new teams and that doesn't appear to be a problem. He will probably make about $8 million over the first two years of a new deal, similar to what Keyshawn Johnson received from the Carolina Panthers.

Moulds, a 10-year veteran and the Bills' senior player, has two years left on his contract, but was scheduled to count about $10.8 million against the salary cap next year. The Bills deem that figure too expensive but have failed in their bid to have the receiver restructure his contract.

Moulds, who is scheduled to make $7.1 million next season, has rejected the Bills' demands, believing there are other teams willing to match the salary. Buffalo would save about $5.5 million in salary cap space by releasing Moulds.

Moulds was Buffalo's first-round pick in the 1996 draft and has been a full-time starter since his third season. In 154 games, he has 675 catches for 9,096 yards and 48 touchdowns. Only Andre Reed has more catches (941) and yards (13,095) among Bills receivers.

ESPN still seems to be of the opinion the Eagles are in this.

What is your point. I posted about all the moves the Texans are making to turn the team around. Bears went from 5-11 to 11-5 in one year (Vikes, Pack and Lions all where bad last year). Bears 13-3 year was also after a 5-11 season and a year after the 13 win season the Bears won 4. So I predict the Bears win 5 to 7 this year based on the history.

Back on topic, Texans, Go get Moulds!

Vinny

What should we trade for him?5th rounder. We are paying for his future, not his past. Just mo, but I think the first pick on the second day of the draft is too valuable for a player who will end up getting cut (by the Bills). Since we likely overpay him, I think we double dip ourselves by giving away what amounts to the a pick that is only one slot away from a first day selection. I'd rather try to trade it for someone's 3 next year if we are not going to use it. Moulds or not. The money and cap hit will be enough for me.

hey there texan fans,

i'm a bills fan, but since i am under temporary ban from their message board i figured i'd come here to see what the chatter was on moulds.

from what we are hearing up here, the texans and moulds' agent have agreed to a 3yr/15 million dollar contract. some rumors have been circulating that the eagles, pats, seahawks, and broncos have also lobbied for moulds' services, but the texans are the first team to agree to terms with the agent. houston would be a good fit for him because his mother lives in the area. bills gm marv levy is asking for a 4th round pick as compensation.

as far as productivity, moulds still has something left in the tank. he is 32, but so is terrell owens (marvin harrison is 33), so guys at wr can still be productive at that age. moulds is a good team guy and leader. he is a big physical wr, who can be very productive in the slot or in goaline packages. he would could go a long way in opening up the texans offense in drawing the double team off of johnson. he would give the texans a 1-2 punch similar to that of holt/bruce of the rams. with their new offensive minded head coach, if the houston can pick up moulds, draft reggie bush, and address the o-line, they will be looking pretty mean on offense this up and cominng season.

as far as productivity, moulds still has something left in the tank. he is 32, but so is terrell owens (marvin harrison is 33), so guys at wr can still be productive at that age. moulds is a good team guy and leader. he is a big physical wr, who can be very productive in the slot or in goaline packages. he would could go a long way in opening up the texans offense in drawing the double team off of johnson. he would give the texans a 1-2 punch similar to that of holt/bruce of the rams. with their new offensive minded head coach, if the houston can pick up moulds, draft reggie bush, and address the o-line, they will be looking pretty mean on offense this up and cominng season.

Thanks for the info. What is the feel about him leaving Buffalo?

Hey man, thanks for the heads up on Moulds. Very good info and I hope he is a Texan. They need another WR and I don't worry about age at that position, maybe at RB, but not WR.

03-30-2006, 01:49 PM
If we got Moulds for a 4th and at 3years/15million I would be ecstatic. I think he has at least 2, probably 3 solid years left of top game, and his veteran leadership will be invaluable (well $15). That is a salary I can definitely deal with

at 3 yrs 15 million i don't think that's really overpaying a receiver that at any point could end up being our number 1 receiver given that andre had some injury problems last year...this fills our biggest need on offense as well...and as an added bonus he is a veteran guy who we don't have to worry about him meeting his potential anymore we just have to find away to get him the ball...keep in mind last year he had very productive games with kelly holcomb as his qb...his production fell whenever jp losman was at qb...and over those odds he still came close to getting his 1000yds...with no qb shuffle here he would probably be able to be a productive reciever like jimmy smith of the jags well into his 30's...i beleive j. smith is something like 37 yrs old and still getting it done in j.ville

Texans | One of two teams favored to land Moulds
Thu, 30 Mar 2006 10:37:42 -0800

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports trade talks are heating up with the Buffalo Bills regarding WR Eric Moulds. A trade could be completed as soon as Thursday, March 30. The Houston Texans are considered one of two teams favored to land Moulds. Moulds will have to restructure his contract for the Texans and that doesn't appear to be a problem.

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports trade talks are heating up with the Buffalo Bills regarding WR Eric Moulds. A trade could be completed as soon as Thursday, March 30. The Philadelphia Eagles are considered one of two teams favored to land Moulds. Moulds will have to restructure his contract for the Eagles and that doesn't appear to be a problem.

More information. With the long list of WRs available, I think that Moulds is the last one on the list. We need to get him if we are going to get a #2 WR from trading or free agency. I don't get why the Eagles would need him with an upcoming group of young WRs

Texan in Japan
03-30-2006, 02:18 PM
5th rounder. We are paying for his future, not his past. Just mo, but I think the first pick on the second day of the draft is too valuable for a player who will end up getting cut (by the Bills). Since we likely overpay him, I think we double dip ourselves by giving away what amounts to the a pick that is only one slot away from a first day selection. I'd rather try to trade it for someone's 3 next year if we are not going to use it. Moulds or not. The money and cap hit will be enough for me.

Agree. I don't want to give up the 4 this yr. However, I would give them our 4th pick next yr.

03-30-2006, 02:22 PM
well trying not to get too off topic here...but from what i understand beltrans agent pretty much told the stros that they would be operating under good faith with them and then went straight to new york due to the ability to get more commericials and took a deal with the mets that was similiar to the one the stros offered to them...but with all that i still think we'll land moulds off the fact that his family is closer to houston than to phili and at this point in his career he is probably wanting to be closer to his family

Right now all we can do is hope. I am giving the Front Office all of my confidence and trust in getting Moulds down to Houston for the next few years. AJ + Moulds + Mathis + Walter + Armstrong = one of the best recieving cores in the league, if we get Moulds. Our problem is that we have a lot of players right now capable of being a #3 WR, but none that are good enough to be a solid #2 WR, and that's why Eric would help us a lot.

barzilla
03-30-2006, 02:39 PM
Why not give up a 6 this year with a conditional pick next year. Let them have a 3rd in 2007 if he gets 1000 recieving yards, 4th if he gets 800-999, 5th if he gets 600-800, and 6th if he gets less than 600. That way they get two picks out of the deal. If he does great then surrendering a 3rd next year doesn't seem so bad (since it will likely be a pick in the middle to lower part of the round) and they get a lot more than anyone is willing to give them now. If he sucks you lose two six rounders (no biggee). If he is in between it is a pretty fair deal for all sides.

I think that Moulds could do what McCardell is doing with San Diego. Check this, when McCardell was 35 he put up these #s:
2005
Catches 70
Yards 917
Avg 13.1
Long 54
TD 9
Now Moulds, who is a little bit younger, will probably prosper being in a new location, like what SD did for McCardell.

This is all it says in ESPN Insider

Texans, Eagles closing in on Moulds?
<Mar. 30> According to ESPN.com's John Clayton, Moulds could be traded as early as Thursday. The Texans and Eagles have emerged as the frontrunners. Both teams want a quick resolution. Bills general manager Marv Levy wants Moulds to take a pay cut and stay, but is willing to part ways with him in a trade.

Moulds will have to restructure his contract for his new team, which doesn't appear to be a problem. He will probably make about $8 million over the first two years of a new deal, similar to what Keyshawn Johnson received from the Carolina Panthers.

the ESPN Ticker has actually been out for almost 2 years now. they were promoting it on their homepage when it first came out for a couple of months. since then they have stopped. maybe they should promote it more if its that popular. the only problem i had with it is that it takes a little longer to get the news on it than it does on the channel itselfor espn.com. so i was finding out the news before it was even on the ticker.

Moulds has agreed to a multi-year contract with the Texans, but the deal won’t become official until he signs his new pact.
The 32-year-old Moulds caught 81 passes for 816 yards and four touchdowns for the 5-11 Bills last season.

for those of you who don't have espn insider (i don't either) here is the article over eric moulds no longer being a speed burner

Insider
Joyner
By KC Joyner
ESPN Insider
Archive

The only player to have generated significant interest around the league despite not being a free agent is Eric Moulds. Moulds has a $10.85 million cap number for the 2006 season, and the Bills have given him permission to seek a trade. As many as seven teams reportedly are interested in him.

One of the reasons Moulds wants to be traded is his unhappiness with the way he was used during the 2005 season. Moulds did catch 81 passes last year, ranking him 15th in the league in that category. However, he gained only 816 yards, 33rd in the league, and the 10.1 yards per reception ranked him 74th in the AFC. These numbers are down from his 2004 totals of 88 catches, 1,043 yards and 11.9 yards per reception.

The reduction in production would seem to suggest that Moulds has a legitimate complaint. I decided to conduct a metric analysis to see how his 2005 numbers compared with those of previous seasons.

First, here are his receiving metrics from the 2005 season:

Eric Moulds- 2005
Depth Attempts Comp Yards TD INT Pen Yds/Att
Short 91 68 545 2 1 9 6.1
Medium 20 10 167 0 1 4 8.6
Deep 17 3 104 2 1 20 7.3
Total 128 81 816 4 3 33 6.6

Now take a look at Moulds' 2004 metrics:

Eric Moulds- 2004
Depth Att Comp Yds TD INT Pen Yds/Att
Short 100 68 644 1 1 5 6.5
Medium 24 14 208 2 2 -5 8.5
Deep 24 6 191 2 3 28 9.1
Total 148 88 1043 5 6 28 7.2

These numbers are largely identical, particularly if we keep in mind that Moulds played in only 15 games in 2005 because of his suspension for violating team policy.

It might look as though the Bills were using Moulds more as a short pass receiver in 2005, but his role was almost identical in 2004. Last season, Moulds averaged 6.1 short pass attempts per game, compared with 6.3 in 2004. Moulds actually helped himself in this category by improving his short pass completion percentage by nearly 7percent from 2004 to 2005.

Moulds wants people to believe his vertical pass attempts were reduced last year, and he is technically correct. It was reduced from 48 medium/deep pass attempts in 2004 to 37 in 2005, but you have to factor in the difference in games. Once you factor that in, it only amounts to a .5 difference in attempts per game.

The reason Moulds doesn't catch many deep passes is he simply doesn't get open deep. One of the things I measure on every pass play is the degree to which the receiver was open. I track the number of steps a receiver was open by and whether the defender had what I term good coverage or tight coverage.

Calculating the number of steps is fairly basic. I simply look for the separation between the receiver and defender when the pass is thrown. Determining the quality of the coverage is more subjective. When a defender has good coverage, it will take a perfect pass by the quarterback to beat him. When a defender has tight coverage, even a perfect pass likely will not beat him.

During the 2004 season, Moulds ranked 85th out of 87 qualifying receivers in tight-good coverage percentage on deep passes. Moulds had tight or good coverage against him on 62.5 percent of his deep pass attempts that season, meaning it was highly unlikely the pass was going to be completed because he simply wasn't open.

His deep pass coverage metrics weren't much better in 2005. Moulds had tight or good coverage against him on nine of his 17 deep pass attempts, which equates to 53 percent of his deep passes.

Moulds still can be a significant player for the right team, provided he can accept the role his current skill set dictates he should fill. The Bills certainly still could use him as a possession receiver. The Texans are rumored to be very interested in Moulds, and they certainly could use a strong No. 2 receiver to complement Andre Johnson. The Eagles, Chiefs, 49ers, Broncos and Seahawks also certainly could use a reliable possession receiver.

The ball is in Moulds' court. If he markets himself as a possession receiver, he will have plenty of options. If he insists on being paid as a vertical threat, most teams are going to lose interest.

He then corrected himself saying things like this can go wrong. Sounded to me if Eric has accepted an offer and Bills have to accept what ever pick for trade to be completed. Probably run it by Eagles one last time. Sport updt said Texans office tells 610 moments ago.. no deal done at this time.

ESPN has listd that the Eagles offered $8mil over 2year inc siging bonus. Didn't say anything about wht the Texans offered, except that it was lower draft picks. Must be same money.

GhostRaider2006

Its basically this but in different versions:

"The deal is not done until he agrees to the pact and SIGNS on the dotted line. The Eagles could still swoop in with a better deal. Houston right now has the lock. But it's not as simple as "WE LOST HIM" just yet. I'm just telling you what is going around the airwaves."

They also don't believe the validity of the reports. Instead they are falling back on "I'm not going to believe this until kffl or ESPN.com reports it".

The denial over there is unbelievable. They just can't stomach that we beat them out in acquiring Moulds. They can't compute or comprehend it. It is funny as hell.

BREAKING NEWS

TEXANS
Moulds acquired in trade
THE NEWS
The Texans have agreed to terms on a trade with the Bills that will net them wide receiver Eric Moulds, according to the Houston ESPN radio affiliate, ESPN 790. The station also reports that Moulds has agreed to a multi-year contract with the Texans, and once he signs the deal the trade will become official.

Our View
The Eagles were also reportedly in the running for Moulds, so we're not sure if it was the Texans' trade offer (reports indicate the Bills were seeking a fourth-round pick) or their ability to negotiate a new deal that have apparently swung things Houston's way. In Houston, Moulds will line up opposite Andre Johnson and give the Texans two legitimate downfield threats; now the problem is, can the Texans acquire some more help up front to allow David Carr the time to actually throw the ball downfield?
