Default RUMOR...Carr to be traded to Dolphins???

RUMORS FLY OF CARR-FOR-RICKY TRADE



On Monday, we surmised that the Texans have floated the notion that they intend to select USC tailback Reggie Bush with the No. 1 pick in the draft in order to avoid criticism from the Longhorns lovers that the lure of playing for his hometown Texans prompted Texas quarterback Vince Young to skip his senior season. (A reader also raised with us another solid possibility -- that the report was a trial balloon aimed at determining what the local reaction would be to not taking Young -- and we're told that the local reaction was decidedly negative.)



But the Bush report also might have been intended to throw potential focus off of rumors that are now emerging -- and these are rumors only -- of a looming trade between the Texans and Dolphins.



Under the deal, as we've heard it, the Texans would send quarterback David Carr to Miami for running back Ricky Williams (a former Longhorn) and a third-round draft pick.



Williams is under contract through 2007. Carr is due to receive an $8 million option bonus in February, which would extend his contract through 2008.



Again, these are rumors only -- and we're not suggesting that this trade will go down. But if it should happen it clears the way for the Texans to select Young.



Stay tuned.

I have heard this rumor, but as I heard the deal involved Ricky and a 2nd round pick.

If this happens, which I doubt, it further bolsters the possibility of hiring Greg Davis who had a close relationship with Ricky as well as VY.

I just do not understand why the texans would take such a lcap hit to trade Carr. That is what makes me think this is never going to happen. Not only that buit you could pay the signing bonus, and trade him for a player that may decide right before training camp he wants to go to africa so do yoga.

I am a UT fan and all but come on people get off the UT bandwagon.:brickwall

I don't dislike Ricky Williams, but I sure hope we never see him in a Texans uniform. This trade rumor is just fan speculation. I wouldn't put much more stock in it than that.

Yes but hey, since when did having a thread (or even a half-dozen threads on Vince Young or anything even remotely related to him ever stop us from adding more?

Bring it on!

We'd basically be trading Reggie Bush for Ricky Williams. We'll get Young, and a RB that is proven.... sounds like everyone should be happy. Well, if it weren't for Ricky's psyche.... I mean Ricky would be closer to Austin, which I here is where he'd like to be...

If only there were a way we could be sure he won't stiff us like he did the Dolphins.... Surely it would be a big gamble, I don't think Casserly has the 'nads.

But then again, what if he does stiff us.... we'd be fine at RB, but it would basically mean we gave Carr away for a 3rd round pick...... I don't know about that.

Ricky Williams? No freaking way I want that nutjob on our team. Not to mention he still has a big contract. I'm all for trading Carr. But if we do i want a starting OL or defensive player and a draft pick in return at least...

I have something better to do, and thats bug you with this thread. They have been right before. 5% is way off more like 45%. They do make some crap up, but it is cause for discussion. I dont think you would take a cap hit until you paid carr his roster bounus. So depend on if they paid him. I am not a capologist so I shall degress.

If you dont like the thread dont post and it will go the way of the Carribean alpha monkey.

There is also rumors of Carr going to Oakland for a 2nd round draft pick and Doug Gabriel. But in these times you have got to take everything with a grain of salt and sit back, watch, and laugh. Its still three months away.

Nothings going to happen.....yet.

I'm not for trading Carr and drafting Young #1, but if it happens I can live with it. Young's a great guy. But I don't want Ricky Williams anywhere near Vince. Why not sign Terrell Owens while you're at it? The Texans don't need that kind of poison.

There may be some plausibility in Ricky coming to Houston but it won't involve Carr. I could see the Texians trading down with Miami for the #1 pick and inreturn the Texians get Ricky, 06 #1, 06 #3, and 07 #1. That seems more plausible, simply from salary cap point of view.

Look, the Texans can only take on one UT project at a time.

Draft Bush and let Michael Vick, er, Vince Young go to Tennessee!!
