9 mill over 3 years is quite a reduction.

I think the money 'earmarked' for Winfield was used on WWS and used to re-sign all the EFAs and RFAs.
As I recall, it was reported that the Texans were aggressively trying to get Winfield to visit. That being the case, I would think that this means they were prepared to pay Winfield in addition to:

a) WWS
b) a #10 draft pick

I wonder if they think they have more cap wiggle room than we can identify?

Agreed. Perhaps they would have pulled the trigger on a trade to move up to get Taylor (and then not resigned Coleman), or another top 7 pick, or perhaps a DL prospect.

Just curious.
