Sorry you had to go throught that.

Can't wait to see how Reeves stacks up in TC, hopefully the Smithiak brings in a lot more competition.

Texans sign CB Reeves to ease needs in secondary
Free-agent pickup from Dallas comes to team with 5-year, $20 million package

By JOHN McCLAIN
Copyright 2008 Houston Chronicle

The Texans have agreed to a contract with Dallas Cowboys cornerback Jacques Reeves, who was an unrestricted free agent. His five-year deal is worth $20 milllion.

Reeves, who started 13 games in four seasons with the Cowboys, visited with the Texans on Friday and attended the Rockets' victory over Memphis with general manager Rick Smith.

Smith reached the agreement with agent Brian Hamilton today.

At 5-11, 188 pounds, the 25-year-old Reeves is the veteran cornerback the Texans targeted. They're still going to draft a cornerback, maybe two, and they might sign another veteran.

After agreeing with Reeves, Smith turned his attention to Miami guard Rex Hadnot, who also visited Friday. Smith has been negotiating with Hadnot's agent, Brian Overstreet, in an attempt to get the deal done before the center leaves for other visits.

john.mcclain@chron.com

Here's his deal as reported by the Chron. Hope his bonus wasn't too big.

Like I posted a little while ago in a different thread...

Starting with the Clements signing, CBs are about to start getting PAID.

There is a high demand for the position, even just for depth.

A lot of money for someone who isn't really "star" quality. Maybe the Texans see something in him others don't. But from what I've read this guy is just another Joe Backfield.

I would rather have Green siting on the benching looking good of the cameras every game then watching our team throw money to a guy that is going to get burned. I am so tired of other teams cast offs, its not like this guy was anygood in the first place. Look at other FA's right now and they are not being signed back to their team because the kind of cheddar they want

I don't recall Smith or Kubiak promising a "Big Free Agent" signing for this year.IIRC,they specifically said they would be looking for mid-level guys this year.Can't remember last year though.

I saw the link on the Comical website, but it's gone now. I wonder what that means. It said a 20 mil deal on the headline but not how many years.

Precisely. Either this guy makes the team and shows promise or he don't get paid. I saw nothing in the write-up about "guaranteed money".

Didn't mind this signing before, tbh. I'm not a fan but I just thought it's worth seeing if we can get anything out of him. That's an huge amount of money for a guy in Reeves' position though. Looks like a poor deal.

Default Re: Reeves is Signed!

Considering my background..Cowboy.. I'll say what I said in the thread yesterday. The guy has some games where you are really impressed.....maybe some breaks on the ball, some tackles, etc. But he did fold down the stretch and was giving up plays. I watched him pretty closely throughout the season.

Overall he is secondary help and depth..not someone to hang a star on unless he becomes more consistent.

Haven't seen any numbers for guaranteed money yet.

A lot of people making a big deal about the $20 million, but remember that is not guaranteed money.

He only gets that much if he plays out the whole contract.
