I don't see why you think the cap problems that we lost our superbowl chances.
At the time of the trade, it was a win-win situation for both the Texans and Demeco.
From what I understand, the Texans took a $2M cap hit, but relieve themselves with $9M in salary in future years on his remaining contract.
They were able to move up 10 spots in the third (or something like that) and get another pick (4th round, I think.)
Demeco gets to play in a system that offers him much more playing time.
If not for Cushing's injury, the move would have been proven "very good" to perhaps "brilliant".
I would have loved for Ryans to remain a Texans, but you've got to do what you've got to do.
