These are all guys that received notable contracts from us by Free Agency, Trade and/or Extension(s) from their rookie draft deals with the Texans. Lets not pretend we're in cap hell. We've got a ton of great talent and they all can't be paid. Period. That's why Winston was cut and Demeco was traded. We've got Cushing and Watt coming up. We recently took care of some core players last year. While I really wish we could have retained Glover Quin, we didn't. It's not the end of the world. We're going to be losing a good player or two every year. That's the nature of being a good team.

I wish people would stop saying we're in cap hell. Just about half of our starters are legitimate pro bowlers. Call it a problem if you want but it's a good problem to have. It means we've drafted well and the players have produced on the field to warrant significant money. We just have to continue drafting well to stay good. Getting guys to produce during their rookie contract is the name of the game in managing the NFL Salary Cap.
Yep

This seems to be the trend that the Pats/Broncos/49ers/Seahawks/Colts/Falcons etc... seem to be following. (Sarcasm////)
