Schuab would be willing to restructure his contract to be able to sign more free agents. Looks like he is pulling a Sanchez! I am okay with that, it just shows his commitment to the team.

Seems like a day late, and possibly a few million bucks short.

That is what I was thinking when I first saw it. Regardless, it could open up enough room to sign a corner or resign Vonta.

I know AJ just signed a new deal last year, but considering the Texans went out of their way to take care of him when they didn't have to do anything, maybe AJ will step up and agree to restructure his deal to allow some room under this year's cap.
I really don't know a thing about capology, so it might not even be possible, but AJ has been pushing for getting Aso in Houston. You never know, right?

It isn't unthinkable for AJ to say, "Hey Aso, if you come here I will give you $_______ million out of my paycheck!"

Why the flying squirrel would AJ give up money to have Aso make more money than him?

So that his entire career is not wasted by the Texans....

I doubt he would do this and agree with you, but I'm just saying....not totally unreasonable as I bet he wants to win at this point more than make $$.

He knows he owns Houston and is going to the HOF. Now he needs wins.

Maybe. But there is a base instinct as well. He has been named best WR in the NFL for a couple years now. I just don't see him going from $9 mil to $8 mil so that Aso can go from $12 mil to $13 mil. Restructure sure. But not less actual money.

I hope it works! We've got to offer a substantial more than the Jets for him to come here. Make. it. happen.

I'm pretty sure that's against league rules.

Restructure sure. But not less actual money.Agreed. Besides, how many times can we rely on AJ's largess? That song and dance will get old. He's doing everything he can possibly do to help the Texans. Sooner or later, the Texans need to reply in kind.

First, when players restructure for salary cap benefit, they don't give up money - they defer it, and they make their contract more salary friendly (at least on a short-term basis), but they don't cost themselves any money in the long term. I'm not saying it's never happened, but if it has it's very, very rare.

Secondly, the contract that makes the most sense to restructure for salary cap purposes is Mario's. His base salary is almost $14 Million, and he's entering the final year of his contract. I don't know this for a fact, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Texans liked the idea of extending him anyway, it could free up money for 2011, and it would avoid the possibility of having to franchise him after the the upcoming season.

This obviously requires the willingness of both parties, but it's got the most potential to benefit the team's salary cap situation right away.

Are you serious? Just last year the Texans tore up AJ's contract with something like 5 years on it, and gave him more money, just to take care of a player who was being under paid. There was absolutely nothing forcing the team to do that other than wanting to take care of Andre Johnson.
That more than qualifies as "largess" by the Texans.

Regardless of all the rest, I have to agree with that. :wild:

Because Aso is working a deal with New York. The boat appears to have sailed yesterday, when the Jets flooded the media about their interest in Aso. Now it seems that they are only a Sanchez restructured contract away from signing him.

Because Nnamdi still may not come to us if he does. All I'm saying is that at least Schaub offered.

Of course it also opens up the wallet a bit for some Jonathan Joseph and Eric Weddle.

Well they just re-signed Santonio Holmes so that gives them a lot less money to work a deal with Namdi.

Might not work even if we offer substantially more than the other teams.

Oh, that's why Sanchez said that. I just don't see Aso landing there, with Revis and Cromartie already there and the big deal they just gave to Santonio Holmes, how and the world could they afford it.

Cromartie's a free agent. Likely won't be back with the Jets unless they miss out on others.

Anyone want to venture a guess?


I'll venture a guess about something else....

1. Mario either has his first distinctly, terrifyingly awesome, no-doubt-about-it kinda season........or tears up a knee and ends it early.

2. In either case, Mario asks for the sun, the moon and the stars on his next contract.

3. Texans franchise Mario.

4. Mario sucks next season.

5. Texans make him even richer.

6. Mario sucks next season.

7. People justify it.

8. The defense never gets better.

9. Kubiak never gets fired.

10..............

The word around the water cooler is that Cromartie will re-sign.

Plus they just gave a large contract to Holmes.....really hoping they can't afford Aso, and keep Cromartie, that's what I was driving at.

This. I almost (I said almost) would rather see Aso sign with the Jags than the Jets. I hate the damn Jets, and Coach Foot Joy. If we can't get him, then please, please someone in the NFC other than the Cowboys sign the guy would ya!!!!!!! Or maybe he can go in to the CFL.

hopefully its a starters pistol because it could happen easily.

Holmes signed a VERY cap friendly contract. only like 4 million counts against cap this year.

Actually based on reports I'm willing to think that Matt held a gun up to their heads and said "Dude, take my money and get this team some ballers! NOW!"
