Except it's something they do all the time.

Schaub... 2 time pro bowler
Cushing... Pro Bowler
Antonio... Pro Bowler
Wade... . Pro Bowler
Duane.... Pro Bowler
Andre.... Multiple pro bowls
Arian...... Pro Bowl
Joseph... Pro Bowl
OD.......... Pro Bowl

I'm sorry, you said 3.

The Texans strategy and logic for the last 3 years...
I have no doubt improvements can be made in how we managed the cap. I don't think Winston was ever a $5M/yr player & we let him go because we finally got to a point we couldn't afford to pay him any more. $3M/yr would have been much more bearable.

At the same time, I don't think it's as big an issue as you think. There will be a time when Brady's contract will be renegotiated, the Broncos will borrow money to pay for Peyton, The Ravens will for Flacco.... if it makes sense & it will.

That's the way it is. As mentioned earlier, as long as we aren't $31M over the cap before the league year even starts, we're not talking about "gross mismanagement"
