The Texans are by and large very tight-lipped about things like this before they're official but the prospect of this big a signing might cause them to break that policy. I agree with you, I hope they keep it zipped until it's a done deal, if in fact they're really in the mix on this like we're being told.

In what could be considered a set-up move to the big Nnamdi Asomugha signing, former Jets wide receiver Brad Smith(notes) has inked a four-year, $15 million contract with the Buffalo Bills, per a tweet from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Is the race for Asomugha almost over?

However, here’s where things get interesting:

Shortly after Smith’s signing was announced, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York tweeted that according to a source, the Jets were holding back on re-signing Smith while they waited for Asomugha to make up his mind.

So now Smith is in New York and Asomugha…

Stay tuned.

Sounds more like a hope and a wish from another media type.

For Smith he sees he's way down on the Jets priority, even if they don't get Nnamdi the Jets will still go for Edwards and another CB. That's a good deal for a role player.

That's per year. So in essence a savings of 3 mill per year over Jets, and 4 mill a year over SF. So figure a 4-5 year contract and you have a total savings of about 12-15 mill over the Jets and 16-20 mill saved over the 49ers.

That aint chump change. Then again, most athletes don't do their own taxes or pay any of their own expenses, so they don't see this value.

Impossible to tell what his taxes would be until you see the breakdown per year. It would probably be much less than that because of deductions each year. But the overall point is still fair. He'd have a lot more cash in his pocket by coming here. And that's at same offer levels, chances are we're actually offer more money plus he still has the tax benifit.

There’s been a great deal of confusion among fans, the media and even inside NFL front offices about what exactly the rules are regarding NFL teams’ contact with free agents before full-blown free agency starts on Friday. So we’ve reached out to the league for clarification.

The league office has informed PFT that teams can visit with their own free agents right now, but not with free agents who didn’t play for them in 2010.

I know players can't sign until late tomorrow, but where did it say they couldn't meet in person?

I never saw that clause. They are free to contact and negiotate and even come to terms, so why can't they meet?

If this report is true, I think it's likely the end. It could also be bogus so let's wait and see. If Aso is gone, we need to go after JJ in a hurry.

Just go to the twitter account reporting it.

If Aso was on his way to Jets HQ I seriously doubt that Clayton, Schefter, Lombardi, Canfora, etc would all just miss that big piece of news.

Lombardi on the BS Report with Bill Simmons:

Here's the problem, Revis makes 11.5 per year on a deal. To get Asomugha today as we do this podcast, he's gonna get 12-14 million and make more than Revis. I know Revis said thats ok, no big deal but it is a big deal. Gotta to keep the structure of your team. Thats like having 3 QBs on your team making over 10 million a year. It would give the Jets a great secondary but would limit them in other areas they had to do in FA wise, which would affect them down the road. I dont know if its gonna happen. Yesterday, it seems like it was heating but Houston has kinda really antied up and right now, I was told by 2 teams in the league that they think Houston is in the lead because Houston is throwing some severe money around.
 
Simmons: That would be too bad because we all know Houston wont do anything with Gary Kubiak. ... What would he do for Houston? Would that change how you feel about them as a contender in 2011?
 
No. I thought the quote of the year was by Eric Winston when he found out about the practice rules he said: "We had the leading rusher and we never went in pads". To me, that proves why I dont like HOuston as a team. They arent physical. Until Houston proves to get physical enough....look Asomugha will make them a much better player, no question, they dont have anyone in their secondary that can cover, he'll make them a much better player but they have to prove to me they can do some things that can be effective down the line in terms of physical toughness. When I read the Winston quote, I was like this is evidence to me to prove my point about the Houston Texans. They think they're being physical when in reality they cant get physical because they never practice physical.

There’s been a great deal of confusion among fans, the media and even inside NFL front offices about what exactly the rules are regarding NFL teams’ contact with free agents before full-blown free agency starts on Friday. So we’ve reached out to the league for clarification.

The league office has informed PFT that teams can visit with their own free agents right now, but not with free agents who didn’t play for them in 2010.

That means there is, in fact, a benefit for current teams who want to keep their own free agents: There isn’t the exclusive window for teams wanting to sign their own players that had been discussed during the negotiations to end the lockout, but teams do have the exclusive ability to meet with their own free agents face to face. If you’re trying to sign a free agent from another team, you can’t do it in person.

So the only face-to-face meetings between free agents and NFL teams that can happen today and tomorrow are the ones involving free agents meeting with the teams that employed them in 2010.

Why not get more fans involved, by buying into all the hype and go over scenarios for each team theyhear is in the hunt for this guy.

Well that sounds good for us. I read that as in the Jets have given him their final offer and he hasn't said anything yet. He's still seriously looking at our offer (and/or 49'ers). Jets want to move on with other players just as badly as us, so they want to know. Doesn't sound like Nnamdi and they have anything worked out.

If I were Palmer I would show up to camp and just sit right in the middle of the field and collect a paycheck until traded.

Well, you have to show 'good faith' or something towards the contract, otherwise they can sue you. But yeah, going through the motions for 9 million dollars seems worth it for someone who's 31.

I get your point, but the Astros made it 6 years ago....

I am not talking about the Dis-Astros. I'm talking about the last time Houston's NFL team went to the playoffs. Houston Oilers 1993-1994 season. We lost to Joe Montana and the Chiefs at the Dome.

The dumbest thing about it is they are going to pay him millions to just sit on the bench? That is really stupid, I'm glad our owner isn't that dumb.

Carson is saying he is going to retire. Brown isn't going to pay him anything.

Carson would be better off going out there & play in the grass.

No they won't, he's 'retired', so he can't collect salary, roster bonus, etc. If he were to show up and half-ass it, he would be able to get paid. Last I heard he has retired.

I only heard he planned to retire but I haven't seen any news on if he had actually done so yet.

Carson shouldn't retire, the Bengals will fold eventually and just trade him.

Don't get the sell that Aso needs to go the Jets to get huge marketing money. You mean like how the Lebron needed to go the Knicks?

Truth is if the Texans WIN he will be marketed. You never hear about Peyton complaining about lack of endorsement deals. He plays in Indiana and is far from pretty. It's all about winning.

I won't mind so much if Asomugha wants to stay at home and take the 49'ers offer - even if it is less than ours.

But I would really hate it if he takes less money and goes to the Jets.
I don't want to lose to the Jets anymore.

Don't you think its kind of funny when we talk about players wanting to join a team with the best chance of winning, but then they string these teams out trying to get every last penny out of them? If he really wanted to win he would take a Revis-like contract so whoever he signed with still had a tiny bit of money to play with.

On another thought, anyone think its possible that Aso is waiting to see if the Texans bring in any safety help before he chooses us?

This is what I'm thinking/hoping. If the Jets had a deal it would be EVERYWHERE already. I'm betting he's decided on Texans and tomorrow at 6 p.m. EST it will be signed and we'll all know about it.
