ESPN Tip Sheet, NFL Section - Len Pasquerelli.

During their Thursday visit with USC tailback and Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?draftyear=2006&id=10305), the Houston Texans (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=hou) did not initiate contract negotiations, but that next critical step in the wooing of the player who will be the top overall choice in the draft probably is imminent. Agent Joel Segal and Bush's marketing expert, Mike Ornstein, huddled on Thursday with Texans contract negotiator Dan Ferens. And that get-acquainted session figures to soon grow into full-blown negotiations. Like any team with the top choice, the Texans prefer to have a deal in place with Bush before the draft begins. For his part, Segal has been scouring the contracts signed by the last several No. 1 overall selections and developing a framework for his client's financial expectations. "It would be great to have the contract done before the draft," Segal acknowledged. "That's the ultimate."

Segal seems like a reasonable agent, I'm not too worried. I would be if he hired the Postons or Rosenhaus

That RB didn't hire the Postons or Rosenhaus shows that he is a smart, level headed person.

The Texans and whoever they draft first (Reggie Bush) will have a contract in place before the draft. The Texans prefer it that way...

Might, but I doubt it. Probably will have some sort of "Agreement in principal", but rather keep the option open for someone to go "Ditka" at the start of the draft.

Of course it is just an agreement in principle you can't have anyone signed until you draft him. I agree with anyone who says VY would come a little cheaper than Bush but it seems very aparent it will be Bush and not VY and I am very certain they will not trade down.

I wanted VY and still do but it will still be great to watch Reggie next year.
