Default Texans re-sign Bruener according to 610

Nothing huge, but I just thought I'd put that out there.

Here's a link to Yahoo's report.

Any word on the length of the deal? I figured him and Putz wouldn't be resigned and they'd bring in a late round/UDFA to compete with Dreesen. Might still happen but I definately see Dreesen having a bigger role next season.

They need Breuner for his blocking expertise so it makes sense to bring him back, Dressen is a valuable piece too, he showed he can contribute last year and there is always the Long Snapper aspect to his skill set.

As much as adding new faces to the team is fun for us fans, it's even more important to bring back the players you already have. Continuity is an important factor in football. Having a guy like Mark Breuner might not seem like a big deal but he's still an important blocker and he provides leadership. I like what Rick Smith has done by resigning Glenn Earl, Mark Bruener, and Andre Davis.

Agreed. Bruener's a great blocker and a good locker-room presence, from what I've read... and TE's are more important to our roster than they are on a lot of other teams because of our system.

Default Re: Texans re-sign Bruener according to 610

This is kind of a signing for me. I hope it was for vet minimum and not long term. I would like to see much more versatility out of our TE's. Not just that one catches well and one blocks well. Kind of tips off the D to me. Bruener DID make a couple of nice catches last year, though.

At his age I doubt he would ever get a long term deal. It might be for just above vet minimum but it is not like is going to break the bank or anything.

only 100K guaranteed. To me this means that they are looking for a TE and if they find one that can block they will let Bruener go. A young MB is probably ideal for the Gibbs scheme since he is a fantastic blocker, but he is starting to get long in the tooth and I have a feeling we are looking at TE's in the draft.

He is a hell of a blocker....he has worth and we don't really have a TE that can block well otherwise...yet.

I have thrown away sports page today, but if I remember correctly $300,000 bonus and another $200,000 roster bonus. Total one year deal apprx $860,000. I could not find article on Chronicle web site to link.
