That's a very good number right there.
That's something we've been discussing the past two weeks: The new CBA is altering today's contracts and will certainly impact things 1 to 2 years from now.
All those teams who were like $20 million or more under the cap, their players they signed this year to get to the minimum cap number (due to new CBA) they better LOVE those decisions now....because a couple years from now, they'll have to be on a level playing field.
I think if Rick can keep the Texans a solid playoff team for the next two seasons, all the great FAs will maybe want to come here since the money will all be pretty much equalized by then. The teams who are still 3 or 4 wins and 13 or 12 losses, they'll be spending the same dollars as us.
This is where a FO is either going to build a great future or really hamstring their team if they've spent poorly just for the sake of being able to NOW.
