Texans | Young surprised Texans will pass on him

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Texas QB Vince Young was surprised when Houston Texans general manager Charley Casserly admitted the team would be selecting North Carolina State DE Mario Williams or USC RB Reggie Bush in the 2006 NFL Draft. "Yeah, I was still surprised when I heard about it," said Young, who came to New York this week to participate in events leading up to this weekend's draft. "I know what the media's been saying about them not taking me, but I wanted to play for my hometown team." Casserly said the team has decided to stick with QB David Carr as their quarterback. "In regard to Vince Young, what we said from the beginning is that when we hired a new coach (Gary Kubiak), the new coach would evaluate David Carr and make a decision on (Carr's) $8 million buy-back bonus. We made the decision to keep David Carr at that time."

that's to (too) much money imo.

As our other first overall, Carr's contract in 2002 was for 7 years 42 million.

The 49 doesn't mean a whole lot since it's not all guaranteed. The guaranteed amount and how the bonuses are going to be paid out are what's important, especially if he doesn't fulfill the term of the contract. If he fulfills the term of the contract, then the 49 might be closer to reality.

If you want to pay your draft pick less, win more games.
