Question Texans And Tommy Blake?

Should the Texans consider bringing in Tommy Blake, the stud DE from TCU. I heard good things about him and Iv'e also seen some of his games, wonder if the Texans should pursue him. Your thoughts?

Last I heard was that he had a try out in Tampa Bay, but that was about a week or two ago. Haven't heard much since then.

All things considered I don't see how it couldn't hurt the Texans brass to bring him in for a look at least.I mean other then Mario we need someone consistent at DE and I'm not really looking for even a healthy Anthony Weaver to be that guy. Guy had a rough last year at TCU and some mental problems but I think Houston would be a great place for medical treatment.

IMO a case of Very Low Risk and VERY high reward.

This is a league littered with guys given second chances (sometimes even fourth and fifth chances!) and an opportunity for redemption. So, I don't know why more teams have not shown interest on Tommy Blake. If he didn't have the problems he does he would've been a top 15 type of guy. But I think more teams and certainly the Texans should at the very least give him a chance. Then again these teams have more information than we do or maybe Tommy isn't really serious about playing football professionally. I remember reading that he's getting his degree and maybe he just wants to do something else. Whatever it is I wish him a happy and succesful life.

IF it was in Texans best interest, I think Smith would have been all over the guy. It could have been an incentive laced contract.

Being a TCU guy who followed him and whose Mom worked at TCU, so I get constant booster updates...Blake is a good guy who had a real problem. He is now getting that taken care of. The main thing is that he only started to get into game shape before the combines and had a long way to go. He also had to concentrate more on his own recovery and not football. In many of these cases its not as simple as medicine and some counseling so their menal health is first and foremost.

With all that said I have been pimping him since the draft. He is definitely a guy with 1st round talent. Being that no picks were wasted I think he is someone you can be patient and work with and see what happens. Plus he isn't far from home.

I hope he gets a chance somewhere but teams seem to be extremely wary about it. The guy has talent and I remember reading an article that he's getting his act together (I think someone here posted it a while back). I hope some team decides to take a chance on him.
