That Dallas blogger has no more clue than we do on what the contract actually says.
You're right, however, speculation is all we have to go on at this point. With the contracts that Florence and Samuel signed, I don't think his contract is that far out of this world anymore, although I still don't know as much about this guy as I should.

I hate to break this to you, but I don't think the Houston Texans are going to make any sort of serious run at Michael the Burner Turner. Whether we plan on getting one in the draft, or getting a FA running back, I don't think turner is the guy. I'm imagining that he'll be the highest paid FA running back this offseason, and I honestly don't think they are going to throw their hat into that ring a second season in a row.

Also, it's only been about 36 hours since free agency has started. Nothing that has been done so far would set us back for years and years.

it's not about keeping peyton off the field, it's about stopping him from putting up points when he's on the field, he tears us apart every time, the one time we beat the colts they went on to win the superbowl because they were pissed off they lost to us

i know he's not getting the full 20 but still. COME ON.

Dumb signings like this will make the run for 'burner' Turner even MORE difficult due to cap space.

The one time we beat the Colts, we did it by keeping their offense off the field.

It's better then your "Turner could have been a Texan" BS.

Either provide a source, hopefully it ain't some random blogger, or prepare to not be take seriously at all. Anybody can say that they heard something...watch.

Dudes, I heard that Rick Smith has secertly cloned Joe Montana and he's going to be our QB next year.

yes but it took a fg as time ran out to win, it was great but how mant times have we beat peyton and how mant times has he shoved a can of whip ass up our rears, as good as j-ville is he rolled them up as well last year, the titans keep it close but peyton beats them in the end, casserly was right when he said that they took mario to beat the colts, if we can beat them than we can win our division, the only thing that has stopped the colts from being a dynasty is the pats, we aren't the pats

Hey, it's a two sided equation... you want a good defense to try and stop him, and a good offense to keep him off the field...
I just think that a team has a better chance winning by keeping Peyton on the bench.
There isn't a single team in the league that can shut him down on a regular basis...
There are teams that can keep their offensive units on the field against Indy.

Default Re: Reeves is Signed!

I think the Texans are going to draft Best player available in round one which will probably turnout to be a Running Back or Pass Rusher at #18. Rick Smith stated that they are looking to add another veteran cornerback and they will proably draft at least two so they are looking to re-tool the entire secondary. I think if they a sign another veteran CB like Brian Kelly or Travis Fisher that has a lot of starting experience I think the texans will look to draft a young corner in the 3rd round and that depends on the health of Daunta Robinson. So drafting a CB in round one doesn't look like that's going to happen at this point so we need to focus on the running back position and a pass rusher to team up with Mario Williams.

yes, but the jags with their ball control offense went 0-2 against indi and the titans with a ball control offense went 1-1, but that win was in the last game of the season with dungy sitting all of his starters and it was only a 16-10 victory, peyton seems to do enough to keep his division down
