Great job by Casserly. You are only going to pay him around 4 to 5 million a year. Very cap friendly...

"It's a deal that is fair to both sides and the Texans, as usual, did it the right way," said agent Rick Smith. "[Texans] general manager Charley Casserly didn't have to do this. But they did the right thing and now, for five more years, they have an excellent tailback in his prime, and at a price that works for everyone."

Indeed, the Texans could have paid Davis his $380,000 salary for this year and then likely retained him for 2006 by using a first-round restricted qualifying offer on him. Such a qualifying offer probably would have been enough to scare off any teams that might have pursued Davis next spring as a restricted free agent.
This is what you call a First-class organization!!

I have a basic jersey with no name. I am thinking of adding my name to it. In that way, I am guranteed to have a name that will never go to another team!

whats the rush to sign DD to a long term deal? did the TO situation impact how teams deal, under the current collective bargining agreement, with star players? I've heard New England ended Richard Seymour's holdout by renegoiating an extension & Daunte Culpepper's current deal is under review.

the deal reflects not just DD's value to the Texans as several stated "he's earned it" but reflects the Texans have assets well contained & more a function of the current NFL players bylaws & contracts with agents and NFL owners.

as long as the Texans can continue to build without being tied to bad contracts I'm fine with it. however I really expected them to focus on PB, I believe that he is more valuable to the organizations future success.

"Buchanon has two years left on his contract but knows the Texans have a history of re-doing deals with one year left. In other words, if he plays well, he's going to be get millions." http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/sports/3291931

key word "if", what "if" he gets hurt? how much then? while he has been productive in his first two NFL seasons, he has an extensive history of injury's. also as a feature back of a expansion franchise he carried the ball a disproportionate number of times, with the addition of Morency and a more balanced offensive scheme its only 50/50 he pounds his way to a 3rd consecutive 1000 yd season.

don't take this wrong, I'm a big fan of Domanick Davis, but I'm also a realist. I'm happy for him. I just hope the Texans are able to keep signing key players they are in peril of losing or as you suggested overpaying if not prioritized correctly.

by that same thinking why wait for Phillip Buchanon to break out as a Texan before signing him to a market value, cap friendly extension & save more millions?

I did buy a Sharper jersey. As a matter of fact I bought two, one home and one away. 55 was my number in high school, so I figured I couldn't go wrong with a Sharper jersey. We all know what happened there. Oh well, I'm still going to wear it and wear it proudly up here in Oklahoma. I might eventually remove Sharpers name and have mine added, but I haven't decided yet.

I understand and agree but with only about 2 million a year guaranteed you have to like the deal.

And Davis needs to fire his agent and hire me:
Lamont Jordan (1277 career rushing yards, 10 career TDs) signed for 27.5 million over 5 years
Domanick Davis (2219 career rushing yards, 21 career TDs) signed for 21.15 million over 5 years

That is why you have to love the deal.

The Texas stated up front when they started this thing that they were going to try to sign our own guys more than have to dip into the over-priced FA market as a franchise model.

I'm good with it if
  • Texans keep flexability
  • Texans keep both CB's
  • Texans forget drafting a RB 1st next year
  • DD stays healthy, lives long & prospers

IMO, we are closing the holes now (i.e. rework the players we want to keep before their contract is over and a bidding war starts). Barring injury and just looking on paper.. I feel a replacement for Coleman,McKinny and either walker or payne is in line for next season's draft (or if wand doesn't pan out LT)

this opinion based on what I see on paper and am't of money/age these guys are being paid(except wand)

Texans sign RB Davis to contract extension Click here to find out more!
NFL.com wire reports

HOUSTON (Aug. 7, 2005) -- The Houston Texans gave running back Domanick Davis a new five-year deal and a big raise, scrapping his league-minimum contract after two straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons.

Davis, a fourth-round draft pick in 2003, has 2,200 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns in two seasons. He was in the last year of a three-year contract that paid him $360,000 annually.

While financial terms of the new contract were not released, general manager Charlie Casserly said Davis was getting a substantial raise.

"We didn't feel it was appropriate for him to be playing for the league minimum," general manager Charley Casserly said. "This shows that if a player comes in and performs better than expected, we're willing to tear up the contract and pay him what he's worth. This puts him up there with the good starting running backs in the league."

Davis, 5-foot-9 and 221 pounds, rushed for 1,031 yards and eight touchdowns as a rookie and came back with 1,188 yards rushing and 13 TDs last season.

"I'm just real thankful," Davis said. "It's been a long hard road, and now I can take care of my family the way I want to. The monkey is off my back."

Coach Dom Capers was happy to hear the news.

"Domanick has earned that reward," Capers said. "It didn't take long for us to see that he had running vision and running ability. He's a good runner and a hard worker, and a lot of people don't realize he led the running backs in the AFC with 68 receptions."

Does anybody know how much of his contract goes towards this year's cap and how much it leaves for this year's cap? Just curious after all the rookies' cap hits and DD's how much room is left. I'm not sure if that info is out there but it would interesting to know. It would give us an idea on what kind of contract extensions we might be able to afford to max out the cap this year. Might as well pay some signing bonuses now before our half dozen all-pro's come calling next year and beyond for their payday.

Davis gets a $5 million signing bonus and the same $380,000 base salary the minimum for a third-year player he was scheduled to make in his original contract.

Beginning in 2006, Davis' base salaries are $1.7 million, $3.34 million, $4.180 million and $4.55 million.

Davis will be paid a $1.2 million option bonus in March. He'll also receive an $800,000 roster bonus next year.

Davis' new contract takes up $1 million more in salary-cap space.

The $5 million signing bonus is spread over five years, and $1 million of it counts against the cap each year.
