Jeez, you cant see that getting premium level talent for the 1st time in Texans history led to them becoming a multiple time playoff team.
I realize that it helped us become a multiple time playoff team. Getting better coaching on the defensive side of the ball, drafting a couple of starting defensive players also contributed. I was being slightly sarcastic, but you can't go out and spend that way each year. The fact that we did in 2011 and had to pay a premium hurts us right now. Bringing in the top guys every year doesn't work. On a cap of 120ish million you can't give everyone $5 million. If you have a few players making $10 million it's even harder.

Sign Quin for 4.5, then DHB for 3.5 and you've had a good offseason.

Agreed

But they have the $$$$ to sign Quin and a WR like DHB or Ramses-Barden in FA if they wanted too. I get that they couldn't sign a big name FA last, Rick's mismanagenent of the cap isn't allowing the Texans to be players in FA this yr.

It looks like Quin is going to walk because Rick is trying to squeeze him. He probably will take the same or less $$$$ in Detroit becuse of Ricks negotiating style.

Maybe, but they gave CB Chris Houston 5 years 25 million, which eats up a lot of their cap space. They also have Reggie Bush and Jason Jones visiting along with Quin. I would be surprised if they signed all three of them, but we shall see.

And the Lions sign Jason Jones, no word on the size of the deal yet.

@caplannfl
DT Jason Jones agreed to a deal with the Lions, according to his agent, Mike McCartney.

Looks like the Texans played their cards right. Not sure how the Lions got him to make a visit when he was clearly at the bottom of their priority list.

Going out on a limb, but I think DHB is going to get more than $3.5M/yr, his 2013 cap hit will be more than $3.5M

But yeah, I'd sign Quin for $4.5 & DHB for $3.5.... I'm sure Rick Smith would too. But I think it's going to cost more for both.

Well damn. Best of luck to him. Safety just became a huge need. We absolutely cannot go into this coming season with Keo as a starter.

Big reason why I was resigned to the fact that we're moving on without him yesteday. One of the tough parts of drafting well. I'd take Woodson for a 2 year deal, and take a safety in the 3rd.
