my guess is that he will do well enough to earn himself a new team-friendly lesser contract but not for the Texans to continue with his current contract to be brought into its 3rd year (where all the money was). He'll probably be a Texan but it won't be under his current deal unless he just gets really hot and has some more leverage and suitors...me thinks that aint happenin.
Agreed. No doubt Smith will be trying to re-work that contract in the off-season. This would also be a good time to get a young QB to groom. Have Schaub start for two more years, then integrate Kubes apprentice into the offense. If Schaub plays up to his trade value in those two years, then we could have a Drew Brees and Phillip Rivers situation, which would be amazing.
