Glad I got to listen to Aaron Glenn's interview on 610 yesterday. He shed light on the situation very well.

Yes ...

Aaron was making it sound as if he couldn't beat out Faggins, much less Buchanon.
And yes .. It was classy of the Texans to move him and do it now.

Default Question about the Glenn release

After listening to Aaron Glenn on 610 Yesterday I'm convinced this was a good move for both Glenn and Houston. We get some money free, he goes to a "win now" team and stays close enough to home. Everyone is happy!

My question is really about the money we freed up by letting him go. I might be wrong but aren't we only suffering a million dollar cap hit with this release? If thats the case do you see Houston making another move for an available free agent with the extra dough?

I believe that all of the signing bonus he recieved had previously been spread out so that it impacted each year of his contract, cap wise. With his release, the total amout of the bonus counts against this years cap. The wisdom in the release of Sharper, Foreman, and AG is that all of their bonus money is accelerated onto this years cap where we have the room, and there will be no effect on our cap by any of their contracts after this season. We will benefit the most from the releases (cap-wise) next season.

The Texans are saving about 500K on the cap--Glenn was scheduled to make $4 mil which comes off the cap, but $3.5 mil of pro-rated signing bonus has to be accounted for as dead money on the cap for a net savings of 500K.
