If you start Peek and use Wong as a backup, the cap implications are exactly the same as if you start Wong and use Peek as a backup, so I don't see that as a factor (from the teams point of view), particularly in his last contract year. I would guess that the Texans have decided that Wong is definately going to be one of the linebackers they keep AND that they have room in the cap this year for their LB group.
I have no idea how the Texans are going to use Wong, Peek and Foreman, but I feel that Babin (they will give Babin every chance to keep the starting LOLB spot) and Sharper are set.
