I've got faith that Clutts will be a very good FB this year after he has an off-season to learn the playbook and such.


Casey was more a pass catcher which will suit him well with Chip Kelly. Best of luck to him.

Good for him. Probably didn't want to play FB either. I wouldn't if I was in his shoes. Should be interesting in that Chip Kelly offense.

gotta let him go at that price.

Here's what that will mean for us: 5th round compensatory pick in 2014...

**We will definitely lose more free agents than we sign, so these signings can be viewed this way.

I agree. We can't keep everyone. Cushing needs to get paid next season. And we need to keep the books open for him.

I have a feeling Casey is going to do well. Glad he will finally get utilized at TE instead of FB. Good luck, James!

Good for James, and good for the Texans. I don't think we were in any position to offer him much beyond vet minimum, so at least with the size of his deal we can get a 2014 5th round compensatory pick for him. That pick could bump up to a 4th if he does exceptionally well for them and/or they go deep in the playoffs.

Really? Joel Dreessen got a little more than half of Casey's contract. And he had been much more productive Casey.

Still, it's not what you're worth. It's what you can negotiate. Casey has the potential and the Eagle believe they can bring it out.

I still will never understand why we didn't try him at TE more. He seemed to catch everything thrown his way at Rice and made a few amazing catches as a Texan.

Honestly, I'm terrified Casey is going to go to the Eagles and become a bonafide stud TE. I really believe with his size, strength, and athleticism, he could be a top 5-8 TE in the league.

Only time will tell, but it sucks it might happen with another team. Good luck James. The Texans are idiots, IMO, for how they utilized your skill set.

You also have to remember that Dreessen is from Colorado and was willing to take less to play in his home state. The fans are great out there and love their team. Plus he gets to play with Peyton Manning. I'd drop a little off my salary demands, too.

Casey has to play in front of Philly fans and gets Vick. He should get more money.

I would have liked to see him back, but we essentially trade him for a 5th rounder next year. I think we can find a good replacement.

Good for Casey. He did not perform to that contract, but he was not utilized as much as he could have been. Unfortunately, I will think of him dropping an easy touchdown in the New England playoff game before anything else.
