The thing is that the Texans have / had several mid level type contracts in OD , Manning , Myers , Cushing along with several top paid types - Schaub , #80 , Ninja , Foster , D.Brown , JJo & Ed Reed.

AJ's contract is a killer because they have restructured it so damn may times pushing money forward. 7 years , 67m with ~20.5m or more guaranteed. He will account for almost $16m in cap space this season , 16m next season and 15m in the final year.

Cap hits for this season:

#80 16m
Schaub - 14m
Brown - 8.5m
Foster - 8.5m
JJo - 11.25m
Cushing - 5.5m
Myers - 7m
Manning - 6m
KJax - 4.335m


That's 81.m+ of cap space without factoring in OD's ~6.25m cap hit.


Now consider how many of their top players didn't contribute sh!t last season and you realize why they are in such bad shape cap wise.

Schaub , Foster , Cushing , Manning & JJo were all on the bench for significant amounts of the season.
