Signing 3 pro bowl players is something the Texans could not do even if they wanted to because they didn't have the money to do it. According to your logic this makes the Texans better.
Signing other players in the early years of giant deals isn't the problem. It is the back end years. The Ravens just kicked the can down the road and Flacco's contract isn't viable in 2016.
What pro-bowlers other than Dumervil? Are you talking about Dallas Clark on his vet min deal?
