Bringing Antonio Back
 
Just heard Antonio say on the radio that he talked to BOB and they both got a really good vibe about Each other. Antonio said he clicked with him pretty fast. Both expressed interest about Antonio coming back. Antonio said his agent has been talking with the Texans and saying positive things about a deal getting done.

How do you guys feel about that?

If a deal gets done does that change your thoughts on the defense Romeo will employ?

I realize that this could all be fluff talk, but Antonio sounded sincere to me and it wasn't one of those generic "well we'll see what happens" kind of answers. He really wants to be back IMO.

It either will or won't happen before the draft. At least it won't be drawn out.

I would like to see Antonio back. Given his age, position and performance I think he can be an above average performer for another 3 years. I think Antonio knows if he goes for the highest dollar contract he is likely to not complete it and end up bouncing trying to get to those 3 years so will be very interested in a contract for 3-4 years he believes he can play out - say something in the 3 years, $13.5 mil range and that would be in the Texans best interest as well. But who knows.

I likes me some Smiff... hope he's a fit and the price is right.

I'm ready to move on from the party boy Antonio type.

He's been here for along time. He's very overrated. IMHO

Agreed. I think it's time to move on. A lot of young and exciting players in this draft that we can land. We need an infusion of young talent on the defensive side of the ball. Our pass rush and the entire front seven can greatly improve. J.J. Watt and a healthy Brian Cushing can't do it by themselves.

I think Antonio is a rock!

He's been one the most consistent players we have had in his time here.

Consistently avg?

Consistently overpaid?

Consistently providing the wrong kind of leadership?

Jumping offsides before the Jags hailmary giving the Jags the yds needed to almost throw the ball to the endzone.

I'd like to see a younger cheaper guy but if the price is right a front line of JJ, Ninja, and Clowney would be deadly.

Everybody has bad plays.

I didn't see average play out the guy. He had some bad coaches to overcome, but he worked hard and played hard.

Could we upgrade him? Sure we could.

But that doesn't change the fact that he's been a good player for us.

The team has a need for him. Re-signing to a smaller contract is a win/win.

Does the same theory apply to #8?

Agreed.

We need him back, our depth at d-line is not good.

I'm also interested in what happens to Wade Smith, not to derail the thread.

You have a point.

I think Antonio would have to cut off his foot to compare the two.

PHILLYTEXANFAN 02-17-2014 10:39 PM

Meh, I could care less if he is not resigned, if he's kept cheap , alright if not oh we'll. "happy trails good sir"

Re: Bringing Antonio Back
 
I'd love for Antonio to come back at the right price. Maybe something like Cak says.

I think Antonio is a good player to have on your football team. Brings some good attitude to that DLine. Plus he's a vet, and I expect us to be competing again very soon. Grab a real NT, and sign Antonio to a reasonable deal. The less holes come draft time the better.

Good to have him on board if he's cheap.

Goldensilence 02-17-2014 11:29 PM

Re: Bringing Antonio Back
 
Good compliment across from JJ, high motor guy and might not be a sack artist but is consistently disruptive. Depth at the spot isn't great either but with cak here 2-3 deal could work we'll with both sides.
