I already know the drill, but I going to go through this exercise anyway. If the texans trade out a draft pick (which left out do typing too quickly), they will trade 3rd this year for a 2nd the following year. In that sense, the team is only saving one year's money, and a 2nd round pick makes more than a 3rd round pick. In fact, more than enough that interest from one year's savings of salary.
BTW, I am anti-taxpayers paying for stadiums so I have no agenda to defend in that manner.
