Good news. Hopefully this means he will move to Guard, where he can have some positvie impact on the Line. The question now would be, who is gonna be our starting center next season?

Pretty good LG, but please, please, please don't let him play center.

If McKinney is playing next season; it will be at LG. Prefer Hogdgen or Mangold at C.

I truly believe Greg Eslinger will be our starting center next year. The lineup will look like this:

Pitts - McKinney - Eslinger - Weary/Hogdgon - Wade/Wand

Wiegart will be cut as a salary cap move.

Possibly go after a guard in the draft.

Mangold is blowing up the draft board with his size and nasty streak he is a late 1st rd. mover. Jets are trying to trade Abraham so they can get in front of the Texans to aquire him. I'm afraid Eslinger will get killed playing center in the NFL against these big NT/DT's. Mangold however can probably hold his own. He would also fit in very nice with McKinney & learn on a fast track

I am glad McKinney did the that. He really had no choice except to restructure his contract. The Texans had he upperhand in this deal. They could have easily cut him and save almost 4 million the cap.

I would much rather keep Wiegert over McKinney. He is a better OG and cutting McKinney would have saved more money so it wouldn't make much sense to keep McKinney and cut Wiegert, are you sure that it wasn't Wiegert that was resigned? I had heard he was willing to restructure and wanted to "retire in Houston" while last I heard McKinney didn't want to take a pay cut.

So we are stuck with him for another 4 years?

I was thinking at best he would just take a staright up pay cut and finish out his contract or be released outright.

This MUST be a joke. We can't expect to build our new offensive line with the weakest link from out last one. We are only as strong as our weakest link. Even with Fergueson, they will still go straight through McKinny's chest to Carr.

McKinney is an LG.. not a Center.. our old coaching staff played him at Center for god knows what reason. He is a much better LG. If he has become affordable, then this is a good deal.

we'll most likely cut him after next season.

Then why sign him long term? We should be incurring a large cap hit next year if we release him.

McKinney's play has been dissected on this board a lot so I won't mention it. What I'm interested in is his signal calling ability for the line. Is there a way to judge that from the information available to us? Is so, I'd like to hear your opions on this.

I'm wondering this because if we decide to play a rookie at center the coaches might still let Mckinney call the assigments on the line.

Good question, I'm not sure who the signal caller was on the OLine this year or who they'll depend on next year, I really doubt it would be any rookie that we bring in though, so probably McKinney or Wiegert if either of them is still around. I think McKinney did some this year, it seemed like he was trying to point out blitzers to watch and stuff like that, and usually some kind of miscommunication between him and either Milford Brown, Fred Weary, or whoever else we had at OG ensued and David Carr was quickly on his backside.
