Default ESPN NFL Front Page reports Houston Texans trying to move up

Article Title: Eyes Of Texans

Description:
Sitting in the No. 8 spot in the upcoming draft, the Texans are eyeing a possible trade to move up to grab quarterback Brady Quinn, writes Len Pasquarelli

Actual Article:

That's good, because it seems that for the second time in six years, McNair is going to be opening up the bank vault to sign a top 10 quarterback from the draft.

The man Houston coach Gary Kubiak quietly had targeted to be his starting quarterback in 2007, Jake Plummer, has retired. Or at least Plummer claims to have walked away from the game, even if he hadn't officially filed the paperwork with the league office as of Thursday evening. But just because it appears that Plummer won't be reunited with Kubiak doesn't mean that incumbent starter David Carr is safe as the Texans' starting quarterback for the coming season... ... ...
Its an Insider, so i can't get the rest without being a member. Maybe someone with access can paraphrase it for us.

I read the whole thing. In summary it says the Texans are talking to the redskins to move up to the sixth spot to Grab Quinn cause they think that the Vikings will grab him with the seventh spot. They say that the Texans have been in some serious discussions with the Redskins.

Unhappy Re: ESPN NFL Front Page reports Houston Texans trying to move up

I think it's more to force Clevelands hand to take either Quinn or Peterson at 3 so they don't have anywhere to go in a trade down with the Vikings. How would you feel if the Browns trade with the Vikings , Vikings take Quinn and the Browns take Peterson at 6?? Alot of fans will be sick.

I think the Vikings have the 7th pick now, so if they traded w/ the Browns, and we traded w/ the Skins, then Peterson would be ours first, if he was there.

Exactly, That's why we make the trade with the Redskins so we can secure either Quinn or Peterson.
