It depends on whether the cap hit from the remaining bonus allocation would be spread over 2 years, or just take the complete hit in '08. If the Texans absorbed the entire cap hit, they would still save about $1.2 million against the cap, since Green in due a $3.8 million salary next season.

I don't know about that . What I do remeber a whole buch of folks garaunting the board that the contract costs for ahmen were negligable. Therefore there was no concern . Yeah, now tell me another one. They need the roster spot(s) for the C/G disaster. For what we are about to recieve may we all be truly greatful.

Marvin Harrison has been out most of this year with the same thing as Green. I guess the Colts keeping him this year was a mistake too.

So they should have predicted that there would be this many injuries?

The contract from what I recall is very low if it is two years not just one, because of structuring. I will look for the contract details.

They can't cut him while he is injured, correct? Don't they have to make an injury settlement?

On a side note...Reggie Bush is out for the year also. I am very glad we did not take him in the draft...

Looks like our backups are getting a lot of playing time as some on this board wanted.

They're not going to cut him or settle him out unless he can't recover by OTAs. That would be an admition that they made an enormous bo-bo.

Green signed a 4 year, $23 million deal. $6.5 million guaranteed.

This is not good news, but it's par for the course with this season. I believe he was only meant to be a stop gap fix & based on some comments from Kubiak earlier in the year, I believe that Chris Taylor was going to be given the opportunity to take over the starting position at some point during the season. But, who could've foreseen him getting a season ending injury before the season even started?

Unless McFadden falls to us, I doubt we'll take a RB with our 1st round pick. Hopefully, we'll be able to trade down & pick up a 2nd or 3rd round pick from someone. I read somewhere where the writer speculated that we could trade down with San Francisco for their late 1st (formally New England's) & early 2nd round picks. Given our success in the last 2 drafts, I'd be very interested in such a trade.

By the way, does anyone know the current prognosis of Chris Taylor?

Default Re: Green to IR

for those of you who understandably are upset & personally feel the $6M cap hit try & understand the buisness side I'm sure Ahman Green didn't point a to the Texans collective heads & demand they cough up 23 million or else, it was the Texans decision he just agreed.

we've been down this road before I'm almost always in favor of the player/worker over the establishment/buisness as long as its not something of a scam planned out in advance. pre-condition or not I beleive Ahman Green came here to our city to play football for the Houston Texans & unfortunate as it is his body just broke down on him.

one of the beautiful things about this organization is that they have the resources to recover easily from this, while I'm mad he can't play too (as I'm sure he is as well) at least he can live a happy & productive life moving forward. I wish him well, maybe if he is interested he could coach the backfield the Texans could still recover some of their losses
