TIFWIW Speculation that an AFC rival has put together a package that trumps the Bucs for Darrelle Revis.

That AFC team is Patriots.

Yeah, Wade Phillips said today that Barwin is a great person, player, leader, solver of world poverty and inventor of the cure for AIDS...but really, that's just coach speak for "There's no way we'd pay THAT guy what other teams want to, not for what he produced for us in 2012."

Know what I mean? Sometimes you have to understand that so much of what these coaches say is just coach-speak...it's being courteous. What else is Vance Joseph going to say, "You know what, these guys better produce or we cut their ass ASAP. Gone. Buh-bye. No scrubs. Know what I mean, Jack?" Of course not.

We kicked Winston to the curb like he was infected with Bieber fever, no warning...no goodbye....just released in a snap. We've heard zero about Quin, zero about Casey, and a couple of nuggets of syrup from Wade about Barwin today. What does that tell you? That when you leave us, you're NOT us. Not anymore. Business code of ethics for the Texans has become to say nothing of the ones you let walk and say nothing but high praise of who you want to sign. Focus is upon the NOW. And I sort of like it that way. Move on, go on, and leave the past players in the past and let them go be with their new team so we can talk about our new guys coming in. I think that's good strategy.

uh... yeah. The important part of my Vance Joseph paraphrase was that he said his role in Free Agency is to find replacements for the guys we might lose. They have no say in making offers to our FAs or in the negotiating. The coaches are instead working with the scouts to find players that will fit with what we're trying to do.

Wink Re: 2013 NFL Free Agent Tracker

Damn feel sorry for Rams fans. Jake Long was in St. Lous for 3 days getting wined and dined but left today without signing a contract.

Haha. No wonder Texans fans were getting a little antsy.

Don't worry, unlike Long, Ed Reed is here to stay.

I'd totally recant on all of my rants about not getting Ed Reed if we can find a way to get Elvis. Would love him on this team.

Elvis would have a much great impact on this team than Ed Reed. He's the kind of OLB bookend you want for several years, not just a one year stopgap. He would cost a bit, but we'll see what happens. It's probable that he just signs a new deal with the Broncos for what they had agreed to before missing the filing deadline. However, if he sees what Paul Kruger got, he may go for a deal like that. He could definitely garner more money than Kruger.

He didn't want to take the paycut, that's for sure. If the agent is "late" on filing that paperwork, Elvis gets his 12m guaranteed. Seems more like an intentional issue to me. He had a lot to gain if the Broncos slept on that deal.

This one might hurt later on down the road. He was a good change of pace back. Another hole for the Texans to fill.
