I'm sure there will much discussion to follow on this subject, just remember with success of Texans free agent group, despite lower contracts, they will most likely offset early projections.
BL, you misunderstand me (and I probably stated it poorly). I was saying that Ball, James, Jones, and Forsett should not
count against the Texans for compensatory picks because they were all released from their teams, but was asking for confirmation by asking if I was right. DR said that all of those guys, including Graham, will not
count against the Texans for compensatory picks. So that's good news!
