And with the Texan staff having a keen eye for talent, we could be drafting the next Bennett. Cheers!

This works 2 ways

Didn't expect to retain him, so excited about that, estatic about the price we paid for him too.

I think like others that retaining Davis and Demps indicate our players believe success lies in the Texans future.

I think this solidifies what we allready knew, CB, OL, and RB are now set for early round priorties. I'm really glad that we got Demps back, but really worried we lost Hutchins. we needed to add vetran CB to fill in for Dunta, instead we got a backup to fill in for Hutchins. I really hope we are able to get lucky in the draft and get someone that can start right away.If we sign another corner in FA I would feel better about our #18 pick. Then we could move corner to the 3rd and concentrate on taking either a RB or OT in the first. Demps signing is positive though, I'm glad.

This is great and exciting news and a complete shock.

I said it at some point last year that our two top FA targets were our own players, Davis and Demps (DD, ha). I can now sleep better at night.

Think they will start selling a Texans man thong with Demps' picture on it at the home games?

I think some people are misunderstanding the Reeves Signing. You don't sign a guy with that contract to play the Von Hutchins role. Barring us going CB first round and him having an amazing TC. I am fairly sure our starting CB's out of the gate next year will be Bennett and Reeves. He's not the guy people on this board wanted but he's who the staff felt fitted what they wanted.

The more I look at their safety choices the more I am inclined to believe we aren't going to have ball hawking safeties for the most part. They seem to want enforcers over the middle. The fact they tendered CC high says a lot.

I feel the same about D-Rob, that's why I've already sent him 2 cards as a
heads-up that he has fans who follow his personal situation and are thinking of him and pulling for his rehab/recovery. I think it can only have a positive effect upon his morale. You might want to do the same thing ?

Now that he'll be a Texan for this season, does anyone have any info on his elbow? Did he have it cut on to tighten up some ligaments?

I'm giving him a break for last season's numerous dropped balls due to the elbow brace. I watched the Bronco game again last night. He had a great game and would've been outstanding if he'd held on to at least one of the balls that hit his hands.

Maybe you're right but I think their safety choices has more to do with what's available. I was really interested in Madieu Williams. I thought he could really help us with our coverage. However, he was thrown ridiculous money. Other than Williams, I just don't see many true FSs out there.

I've noticed this also. Most other guys will put their hands up to their heads or jump up and down when they miss an INT.

At least this guy will drop and give you 20 for missing one. He might be metro, but he plays with a blue-collar attitude.

I don't think it's any coincidence that the secondary (and the defense) took on a new attitude when Demps assumed starting duties.
