Because the Texans didn't have cap space they didn't have the cap space to sign Glover Quin and thought they could do better with Ed Reed.....I could go on and on and on......
4 million isn't a disparity worth mentioning. Most fans can name 20 million in cuts easily
Comparing the Texans to the Colts is worthless. The Colts bit the bullet and had nearly 40 million in dead money after their fire sale.
GC's contract was 1 million more guaranteed money for a 2 year longer contract and 1 million less for the 2013 cap hit. It was a wiff of talent evaluation, not a cap casualty.
