Like Vinny, I'm skeptical of the report. While supremely talented, he has also proven throughout his college and pro career that his talent stops at his neck. If he gets his head screwed on straight, there's not a team in the league who wouldn't want him. The Texans have to answer several questions. First, do they want to take a chance on upsetting team chemistry, by introducing a me-first type who may challenge the coaches and other players - ie, do they want a potential cancer. Secondly, does the upside potential physical talent outweigh the potential risks in attitude, desire, and chemistry? There have been many a coach who thought he could turn a guy around. Maybe Capers thinks he can, who knows. Lastly, if they answer in the affrmative to the above, then the third equation is what is he worth? Personally, although ironic, I wouldn't give up a third for him. I might take a gamble with a fourth. That is why they get the big bucks though.

If the guy wakes up, he has first round talent, and would make a great one-two punch with AJ, with Gaffney in the slot. I would use Bradford in the 4 WR package, with Sloan Thomas and Armstrong probably duking it out for the 5th spot. I doubt they keep 6, but you never know.
