For a second I thought that 4m meant 4 million. Twitter.

When was the last time you saw a botched special teams snap? I can't recall one. I think this is a good re-sign.

Minor move yes, but it is encouraging that they are still at work over there on Kirby.

That wasn't Weeks snapping, that was the guy that got hit with the PED violation. I forget his name. Anyways, Weeks has been with the team for the past two seasons, making minimum money. Nice gig for him and for us.

Yeah, he does. He looks like a tall midget, if that makes sense.

The sort of guy you'd rather keep around than allow to move on. Good re-sign.

Yeah I know but you asked when the last time we saw a botched ST snap so I just answered.

I came into this thread looking for this exact comment.

TBH, money spent even on the LS is money not free to pay :mariopalm:

He has been making minimum every year, so unless this deal is more than that (probably not) or the Texans were planning on only having 52 guys on the roster, then this money was going to be spent anyways. It's not affecting their other free agent offers.

On 610 this morning they were saying a good delivery is .75 sec and JW's delivery is .68 sec.

The second Texans vs Titans game this season, but that game was a joke.

But that wasn't Weeks snapping though.

On special teams? I don't think so. The issues they had were from Thomas Austin snapping under center to Jake Delhomme.

Our LS is such a badass. He's .7 seconds faster than most LS. He's going to win us the Lombardi Trophy.

I've never understood why another guy already taking up a roster spot couldn't long snap as well. Surely Caldwell, a backup OG who was a Center in college could learn to long snap thus freeing up a roster spot and helping him to earn some of the money he's being paid.
