Wasn't there a character issue with Starling? I recall some talk around the time that we signed him saying there were character concerns and that was why he wasn't drafted. Does anyone else recall this?
I think clearly the Texans want him to make the team and accordingly they must have resolve the character issue (if any) in their minds.
Gaffney also had some issues from early years in Florida and the Texans must have decided he had grown out of it.
