IIRC, he's under contract for 2014 and a team option for 2015. If you don't resign him after 2014, you try again after 2015. If you can't work it out ( which I don't forsee ) then you franchise him if you have to for 2016. I have no problem with that at all. Dude is face of the franchise now, he's gonna get his money and it will be from the Texans. I don't know why you would think there would be a problem is he isn't signed after 2014. Recent history shows he will be, but if not, it's not the end of the world
