Default Texans want to re-sign Salaam

Quote:
The Texans are hoping to re-sign veteran offensive tackle Ephraim Salaam, who played one season and is an unrestricted free agent. If Charles Spencer makes a full recovery from his broken leg, Salaam would be the swing tackle.
"I like what Ephraim stands for and what a positive influence he had on the younger linemen," Kubiak said. "We asked him to help the young guys, and he did, and then he played in 14 games after Charles went down. He's the kind of high-character guy I like to have on my team."

It would also be nice to see if Mathis figured out how to catch the ball so he could compete for the #2 slot.

Default Re: Texans want to re-sign Salaam

Salaam was a warrior for us last year, showing great character and determination. I hope we bring him back because I think he is a guy that the young guys can learn from and who we can count on if things go pear shaped.

I think Salaam's a good player to keep around. He may be the only guy who played as hurt as Mario did. Not bad for an older guy.

Hopefully he won't have to. He's being signed for depth, not to build this team on, and we most likely won't be spending a lot to keep him around.

But think about it.

Freeney(twice), Ware, Taylor... got nothing while Salaam was in the game. Well, Taylor did get past Salaam once, but that was on the very next play where Salaam came back into the game, after getting smacked really hard...... I think he was out for 4 plays or so.

Agreed TK, he gives the young guys a standard to have to live up too. You have to tough it out because Salaam does.

Default Re: Texans want to re-sign Salaam

I know I'm going to get slammed for this, but I never saw Salaam's value. Injury or not, he played to the level I expected for a guy run out of Jacksonville for allowing too many sacks on Byron. He never looked solid, and would have had higher sack numbers if Weigert hadn't played under him. Too many times Carr was sacked by the right side with the left tackle not a step away from him.

I understand the guy being here for depth, and I know Kubes has an obsession with swing players, but I think the Texans are better off with other players. God help us if he has to start as the Texans left tackle again this year.

I think his biggest Value comes from having been in the system before, and being able to help some of our younger OL, more specifically Winston and Spencer....

I agree with this. As long as he doesn't break the bank, he's a good one to hang on to. He also seems like a very intelligent and well spoken man. So, I'd like to see him around next season for not only depth but as a mentor.

Have they changed the meaning of the word "solid" recently?

Just wondering.

salaam is a quality guy...i think this is his last year in the pros...i think depending on guys that we are able to bring in that he might not make it past june 1st...if we are able to get a guy like jordon black or mike gandy or draft a guy in the top 4 rounds of the draft i do not feel that he will be here during the season...but i am for bringing him back he still has a lot he can teach to winston, pitts, weary, and spencer
