If I can get excited about a 35 YO safety, it would be easy to get excited about a 37 YO punter.

Hopefully things works out between the Texans and Shane.

Yeah, I do have off the field issue like chasing young ladies. I guess, I won't be drafted as water boy for the Texans. Maybe, UDFA.

You can't KEEP what you don't HAVE. He's a FA.

We have NO punter on our roster.

I will take improving the team over worrying about the effect on comp picks any day. Lechler is still the better punter amongst the 2 & field position is half the battle. Especially when you got Kubiak calling the plays & Schaub running them, give them a 10pt lead & the offense goes into coast mode. the defense needs every advantage possible w/ the multiple 3 & outs by the offense sitting on a lead & pinning the opposition deep will help the defense tremendously. Normally I don't care about a punter being signed, but Lechler can create some advantages for the Texans & I would be happy if he was on board.

No, his last name is too long and I will have a hard time pronounce his name and If I try to call him by TJ, this will confuse more with TJ Yates.

Texan fans will love having Lechler as their punter. The Raiders have a guy M. King they had on IR last year who will now become their punter.

Lech is probably the second best punter all-time.
