i know he's a FA but he's an unsigned FA (that will prob take a vet min deal) and as he was a texan last yr he wouldnt have counted in the comp pick calculation

Normally I don't care about a punter being signed, but Lechler can create some advantages for the Texans & I would be happy if he was on board.
thats assuming lechler is an upgrade. donnie played well last year and has the stats to back it up. if the two players are much of a muchness, why shouldnt that potential 5th or 6th rd pick come into the equation?
anyway im not gonna get too bothered about it since we've signed lechler now. he's a name but once he plays well too il have no problem with him
