  1. Newton is either tough as heck, a competitor with passion for the game
  2. Texans medical staff determined he couldn't hurt it anymore that he was good to go on limited basis
  3. Texans Medical staff doesn't know what they're doing
  4. he re-aggravated injury after season

Anyway up to Detroit I thought he did play well, with exceptions of a few false starts which is to be expected. His development was hindered by the revolving door @ RG. Also Caldwell never came back from his injury, that certainly wasn't in the plans & under-story of entire season in regards to offensive line struggles. He is a free agent right? So with experience Brooks & Jones Texans should have much improved play next to Newton.
This is my evaluation also. McClain may be correct with surgery being major but nothing we know of (as you state) indicates that.

With the history of the Texans medical staff I'm going with #3 on your list.

Bottom line is Newton wasn't good enough last yr. Will he improve? Who knows, but using a 3rd/4th rd pick to hedge the Newton bet seems like a good idea.

I believe in Newton's ability to improve and solidify the RT spot next season, but mid round OT for insurance, future swing OT, and possible O-line future starter is a very good idea.

A while back we talked about using our own picks to trade up for extra 2nd rounders, now it seems that we have so many holes in the team to fill there won't be any trade ups and we'll keep all of our expected 11 picks.

Three seconds, comp 3rd and a 4th = WR, NT, OT, S, and ILB.

As long as the added 2nd rounders are early in the 2nd, I'm all for this. With this we obviously traded down from the 1st round and should have an added 3rd or 4th rounder coming to us from whoever we traded with as well.
