If I had to guess, I'd say 90% of undrafted free agents are out of the league within a year.

Usually, there is money from the vet either to the player directly or a charity (see Green case). as much a goodwill move on the vet's part as anything.

That's the thing. Reed didn't even know. Ganguli heard what Reed was saying to McNair. So, it was the Texans that took the number. Or Roc offered it up

Ok so he's only guaranteed $5M but he can earn $6M in the first year.

I'm thinking $5M signing bonus and $1M base.
The $1M base will need to be prorated over the games played; ie. he only earns the full $1M if he play all 16 games.

Or perhaps, there's a bonus for making it to the play-offs?

Yeah, I think Jeremiah Johnson has done pretty well for an UDFA; I remember linking some videos showing his mean stiff arm in his evaluation thread.

Ozzie's Philosophy is always "Right player/Right Price".

And he would always rather let a player go 1 year too early than 1 year too late.

It's wise to do this right now after a SB win when he pretty much has carte blanche to do whatever he wants with the roster. Nobody is going to howl for Newsome to go because most of the defense left this offseason.

Man, how can you not be excited as a Texans fan!!

I always sort of dreaded when the Texans played the Ravens because of Ed Reed. I remember the last couple of years telling my buddy how awesome it would be to have a dude of his caliber on the team. News is still sinking in, but wow, this is fantastic.

They probably just made it for the press conference (that's probably why they were waiting so long to announce it). It's like the Watt or Mario jersey with the #1 on it. Doesn't really mean anything.

OTH, I bet there will be a few days this offseason where Carmichael doesn't have a job if he doesn't agree to relinquish the number.

I really liked McNair's comments at the press conference. You can tell he's become quite the student of the game.
