If he keeps up this level of play, if he is still this good in a few years do the Texans need to start saving up money to keep this guy this season? Who else is going to have to be a victim of our cap space problems in order to keep JJ, and how rough is the year leading up to his contract going to be as far as cutting some serious players from our roster. Again just a sorta random thought thread, take it as you may.
teams tend to lock up guys they want and let the guys like Mario walk...at least the ones that make good decisions. Fortunately our team seems to be one of them currently.
On the greater topic of cost...a league MVP type of player will make serious bank. It's ok to pay those guys because they are worth it. Where you get into trouble is paying guys like David Carr top dollar (or Mario Williams) and getting average player return on investment (c-Buffalo). When you do this kind of stuff you end up letting quality go to keep overpaid crap.
