Four year contract would not stop the Texans from either keeping him and hoping for the best next year...........or releasing him once off of IR.

Originally from The National Football Post:

Quote:
The Texans have signed fourth-round linebacker Darryl Sharpton to a four-year contract.

Sharpton received the standard base salaries of $320,000, $405,000, $490,000 and $575,000, a fourth-year escalator clause and a signing bonus slightly less than the $538,250 that Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams received as the pick directly above him.

I dont understand why the texans seemed so excited about his return when he came back from injury.

He doesn't flash when you watch the team play. He had that pretty good pre season as a rookie though....seemed like a player...

But I don't see him as some big time player. Seems like a dime a dozen type guy.

My thoughts exactly. Hate to see anyone go on the IR, but from a football standpoint, he's just another guy. Texans started the season with Brian Cushing and several guys ranging from "Just A Guy" to scrub at ILB. Not sure why they thought they'd be OK at linebacker.

I agree with the dime a dozen comment, but he was attacking the LOS much better than either James or Dobbins were. Big drop from Cushing, but he brought at least some of it back to our game.

I see teams making moves and being ready for those moves but I never see good teams running off key components of their team because the screwed the pooch on the cap without some kind of plan.

I was just saying we'll screw that up too. Pessimism wrapped in candy coated sarcasm shell.

yeah, think the days of depending on sharpton's health are over, but keeping him around and hoping for his health (and honestly improved play) is what I am expecting.

Sharpton was just a warm body anyway....he was a bad draft pick from the get go. I've been underwhelmed by his play when healthy. All he can do is cover in the flat. He wasn't physical enough up front, not a good gap filler and is slow to read and react. Jay Foreman was twice the player he is.
