Nice price, IMO.
very good price especially in this offseason's market. it sounds like we are starting to not have to overpay anymore and people just want to start.

this signing and the money makes me think we may have shaken the expansion tag...sure hope so..i thought he was a dolphin for sure

Default Re: Demps Signed!!!!

Great news indeed! But I see this move differently than others here. I figure that this move ALLOWS us to look at the offensive side of the ball in Round 1, being either RB or OT. This draft is really deep at CB, so taking a guy in the 3rd (or maybe 2nd w/ trade) that's not as polished as a 1st day CB is a definate scenerio. And with the Texan staff having a keen eye for talent, we could be drafting the next Bennett. Cheers!

i'm actually very excited about this. he played pretty well during his tenure as a starter (WORK ON YOUR HANDS, MAN!!!), and i would have been even more worried about our already questionable secondary had he left.

good job, rick.

I saw this article yesterday about the Redskins bringing him in for a visit (nobody panic this was written March 1st):

Quote:
Safety Will Demps likely will be the first free agent to meet with the Washington Redskins this year when he visits Redskin Park later this week
Quote:
In the wake of the shooting death of Pro Bowl starter Sean Taylor in November, the Redskins are looking for a safety to play next to LaRon Landry.
Washington Times

After seeing that and knowing the Redskins' prior history of breaking the bank in FA, I thought Demps was as good as gone. Makes me appeciate the job Rick Smith is doing even more, especially considering the reported contract seems very reasonable. Go Texans!

This really takes Kenny Phillips out of the Texans radar at face value, but why not turn a weakness into a strength if KP is your bpa at #18? Phillips does a good job in space too and based on Richard Smith's defensive scheme in the secondary, there is a lot of open space. In 2006 KP was arguably the DPOY and he just had an off 2007 campaign by his lofty standards.

After McFadden, Mendenhall, and Gholston, I have KP as the most likely guy to make an impact from Day One. CC can't cover his own shadow and pretty much needs to go. Why not roll out Demps and Phillips as your starting Safety tandem? I think that would take a weakness and turn it into a strength, and would help things out while Dunta rehabs and gets back.

Bennett, Reeves, Demps, Phillips. That aint a bad secondary at all from Day One. Or just sign McRee instead of drafting KP and draft one of the young corners and then you are even ramping up the domination. I want go get fired up about this defense and retaining Demps makes me feel good about that going forward....even though his website is selfindulgentnarcissism.com

Thanks Bob for ponying up the money to sign Demps...and not overpay. Nice Job.

I would rather add some speed to play along side Demps & CC. Phillips is not fast (4.55) this sets up more for a 4.33 guy like DRC in 1st or Antwaun Molden, Eastern Kentucky 4.39 in 3rd.
