If you don't sign him, and he injures himself again, he won't be worth breaking the bank for by another team, so he can be signed again without a lot of trouble. However, if he stays healthy, the defense is instantly better with just his mere presence on the field. I'd take the chance and sign him before I know. Uncle Rick did a fine thing here. I'm becoming quite the Rick Smith fan.

Didn't they pretty much do the same for Schaub last year? Extend before the knew how his injury would impact the entire season?

I think this is a good move. It tells the team where the FO's priorities are by signing a proven defensive leader before he had to prove himself.

Default Re: Cushing Gets Extension

Just to clarify.. when I said "next on list, lock up Watt". I wasn't referring to locking him up "this offseason". That isn't going to happen as we don't have the cap dollars and we don't need to lock him up right now. I was just saying that he's the next core player (and you can only afford so many) that needs to be locked up, whenever it may happen.

Nobody anywhere can "lock up" Watt; you just offer him a hand and hope he takes it.

Yeah guys like Arian Foster and Duane Brown ironically did. JJ Watt had a huge year as we know but once he has another big year he will have proved himself worth what his contract will be.

If the Texans were to offer him an extension today that he felt was fair he'd be silly not to take it.

Tomorrow is guaranteed to no one.
Sigh. Here we go. You're being argumentative just for the sake of being argumentative.

Correct, tomorrow is promised to no one. Correct, he could get injured. Correct, just getting once year older can hurt him (though I doubt it, in his case).

But that's the roll of the dice you take, both as a player, and as a franchise. If the Texans DID offer him an extension, he'd be foolish TO take it at this point, in my opinion.

Point is moot. Under new CBA rookie contracts can not be extended until after the 3rd year is complete.

Im surprised we didnt sign greg oden.
Actually, Reed's contract really didn't break the bank all that much. It was structured pretty favorably towards the Texans, if I recall. If I'm wrong, someone correct me. I don't remember the details of Reed's numbers.

Was worried if Cush got to free agency Jerrah would make a run at him. He was a life long Cowboys fan. odd being from Jersey but I remember him saying that.
