underachieving 2012 season, which was his "contract year", so it's highly unlikely that the Texans bid higher for Barwin's sevices this upcoming offseason than EVERY other team in the NFL. Besides the Texans have an even higher investment in first-round pick Murciless who they expect to start and develope in the near future, and there isn't room for both to start.
After Reed got hurt Barwin switched to his position.
