IDK. Was I one of them? I can't remember yesterday much less last year.

I think this is great to get it done this early. One less thing for SmithGM to worry about. Now get out there and get some more.

Here were some posts - way back when:

Quote:
I remember asking about Andre Davis back in June and some of the responses were:
Quote:
Davis is in a make it or break it year for his career. He should be a cheap addition if he makes the squad. My understanding is few think he makes the roster.
Quote:
He's really going to have to step up. If he can get the job done, great. I haven't heard anything about how he's been looking so far. We'll have to wait for TC to really see where he's at.
Quote:
I think Andre Davis will be cut.
Quote:
How good is Andre Davis really?

Still here and glad to be wrong. Prior to last season Andre hadn't done much and it's safe I think to say that he badly needed a season like the one he just had.

Now he needs to do it again.

I credit him for stepping up when the oppurtunity arose. I'm really glad he deceided to resign with us to continue building on what can be a great next season for the Texans and loyal fans like you and me.

Last year signing Andre Davis hardly registered a ripple, today it is officially Andre Davis day, what a difference a year makes....

Contract details please... then I will really celebrate. In saying that I trust the front office not to overpay.

Yes! This also makes me very happy! I really think our receiving corpse is now in the top 5 in the entire NFL, and we don't have to rely on unproven kick returners.

He played with Browns in the Couch years and then with the Pats and last year with Losman. This could be the right place at the right time, but I would not hold my breath.

Valid questions - yes!! But I only grabbed a few quotes. Some were that he absolutely had no chance of making the roster whatsoever. Some of those same people thought that 67 y/o Keenan McCardell had a better shot of making the roster.

By the same token, I am not taking any credit for being right about Davis, but I did feel like a change of scenery would do him some good. He was pretty well thought of coming out of college (at least as a second rounder), but could never really get it going in Cleveland because of injury and really didnt see much time in Buffalo or New England either.

Default Re: Andre Davis re-signs

One hour ago from the SF Chronicle

Quote:
The Raiders also are said to be in hot pursuit of Texans wide receiver and kick return Andre' Davis, who becomes an unrestricted free agent tonight. Davis, 27, signed a one-year deal with Houston last season and replaced the injured Andre Johnson as the Texans' starting wideout.

But Davis made his greatest impact on special teams. In the Dec. 30 regular season finale against the Jaguars, Davis scored two consecutive touchdowns on kick returns, for 97 and 104 yards, respectively.
