Since linebacker Shantee Orr and fullback Vonta Leach were undrafted coming out of college, the Texans only own the right of first refusal. This means that if another team is very eager to signed either player, a poison pill clause can be inserted into the offer, thereby guaranteeing the salaries if the player were to stay in Houston, making it difficult for the Texans to match.

Very similar to what they did in the Burleson/Hutchinson thing....Like put a clause that would say...."If this player plays more than 5 games in the state of Texas, a 10 million dollar roster bonus must be paid"...etc etc...

It is a wierd loophole but it is allowed

If Arizona signs him and we don't match, do we get a draft pick or any compensation?

Not in this case because he was undrafted...we only get the option of signing the guy to the offer the other sheet the other team signed him to.

You really think the Cardinals would use the poison pill, which is looked down upon, to get a FB? Hopefully if they offer anything we will match it...

Good point. It's not wise for one team to risk the wrath of another over a
player like Vonta Leach. Not to discount or dis Leach's contribution to the Texans last year, but he's not quite the caliber or level of player a franchise would make war with another franchise over.
But somebody said earlier in the thread that Leach was a RFA. Well that sounded too good to be true since he'd been in the league for a couple years, but only here last year. But I definitely dunno 'bout the rules & regulation on that subject ?

i hope leach isn't offered that big of a contract...i do want him back...i don't know of any injuries he has had in the past so i really wouldn't mind the garentee portion of the contract to keep him...as long as it makes sense in reference to the fact that he is a FB not a RB...and that he really isn't the top teir FB like Neal, Alstott, or Richardson

I remeber that whole thing (came back to bite the Seahawks in the ass with Burleson), but it seems a very strange thing to be allowed.

We need to be looking at Arizona's CB, David Macklin. Get us some competition going for that second spot.
