Not a great player but, for a minimum salary, a good insurance policy.
Should the Texans resign him for depth? He knows the system and was fair to decent last year. I think he could help buid depth on the O line.

The big question is why the 49's dumped him so quickly?

The Jury is still out on Seth Wand. Although they say the guy has looked good in the offseason......It is the offseason. I look great without pads, but let the hitting begin and I'm sure things will look a little different. Sign Randall. If Wand looks good through drills, the preseason, and we feel he's going to be a mojor contributor, cut Randall and move on towards Texan Greatness!

He didn't impress me too much. I think we are fine without him. Let him take his poor work ethic somewhere else.

This guy is a total mystery to me. I got the distinct impression that we wanted
to resign him, but he didn't want to return. And just like the ESPN article said,
he was steady for us all year. Just like the year only a couple seasons ago when
he started every game in regular season, playoffs, right thru the SB with the
Pats. SB starter - that makes for a pretty impressive line on the resume.
I also read in several places where he was more or less rated on the same level
as Todd Wade. But he must have a real attitude problem, know he got in the "dog house" with the Pats' coach for having a KFC, Popeyes, etc. type problem.

Last I had heard, the Rams had signed him. I will try to confirm that...


edit - I think that may have been Ryan Schau I was thinking of.

I think any chance that Randall had resigning with us was blown when we signed Marcus Spears (I think thats it). Spears seems like an upgrade over him anyway just a little older.

I think that if the Texans had seen anything at all in Randall they would have been happy to keep him. They didn't and so, they didn't. All the potential in the world won't keep him in a job if he's not willing to put in the effort to go along with it. He's going to be a short term solution for any team. I just don't think we need him except possibly as competition in camp and that can be had cheaper than Randall.

well if you look at our offensive tackles right now our starters are seth wand and todd wade...back ups are pitts and spears with dawson, jones, and a long list of unknowns following them...personally i would like to see us try and re-sign randall because he is a solid back up and knows the system
