Considering most 6th round picks dont even make the team I think this is a very good signing for the Texans. This gives them a guy that started 16 games at center playing for a team that runs the scheme the Texans run. With Alex Gibbs coaching him up I think he'll be a solid center for years to come (he's only 25 and has played 3 years in the league).

I'm very happy with the way Rick Smith and co. plays the game in the offseason. He's not overpaying guys, he resigned our best UFAs and tendered our best RFAs, and he's signing guys that are low risk/high reward signings. If they dont pan out we dont really lose a lot, but if they do then that's very good for us. Its how winning teams like the Pats and Steelers have been able to compete year in and year out and its why I wish we had never had Charlie A**erley as the GM who set us back a couple years talent wise and put us in cap trouble before leaving the Texans...THEN he takes credit for picking Mario lol!!!

PS: Rick Smith owns you Charlie!!!

Before making the trade, the Broncos signed Myers to a four-year, $11 million contract, including $3 million guaranteed. Myers, a third-year restricted free agent, who started 16 games last season, could have been signed to an offer sheet by the Texans.

The Texans opted not go with an offer sheet because it was easier and quicker to offer the pick and execute the sign-and-trade deal.
i love this signing

Best FA pickup of the offseason for us imo, other than resigning Demps and Davis of course. Center is probably the weakest spot of our OL and this guy is 25 years old and started 16 games last season in a system similar to our's. If he can help keep the Haynesworth and Henderson types in check on Sundays then i'd say we got ourselves a steal fellas!!!

Who else is ecstatic that not only are we getting young guys that can be contributors for us but WE ARE NOT OVERPAYING?!?!?!

great signing. finally addressing the Center position and once again, with YOUTH. i love that we arent signing 8 and 9 year veterans to big deals and we are getting guys with promise for team-friendly deals. just another guy that has familiarity with some of the blocking schemes employed by Kubes and Gibbs in their past.

thanks RS. you seem to truly have a grasp on our team needs and are working tirelessly to improve every aspect of our team. After this signing and the Reeves signing, a few of our post-season needs have begun to be addressed. Now we can pretty much go BPA at #18 unless there was an LT that they are in love with that would last that long (which there isn't imho). Now that Center and to some extent Safety and RB (Demps re-signing/Chris Brown signing) have been addressed, our list of urgent needs got smaller. In order of need, CB, LT, DE/OLB Edge Rusher, ballhawking FS who can play in space. Most bankable solutions at LT will be long gone by #18 so we can assume there will not be an LT taken at #18 outside of Sam Baker, who isn't bankable as LT.

I think now you can start thinking about Keith Rivers out of USC at #18. If we don't draft him, the Titans will. I would rather have him on our team. He might really make an impact in this league with his quickness and knack for the ball. If they go after Baker or maybe reach on a Collins out of Kansas, you can't really fault them for trying to address LT in a long-term way. Personally, I just think we need to get a guy that we know can play a position of need, and Rivers, Groves, Phillips (even with Demps signing), Talib, Cason, or Rodgers-Cromartie are all picks I would be fine with. No LTs worth #18 will probably be around. BPA should win over in the end.

Do your posts come with a dictionary? I have no earthly idea what you are talking about.

Good move imo. I don't rememebr seeing him play, so the jury is still out, but I trust this braintrust much more than I do the prior one, and if Gibbs thinks he can play, that's good enough for me.

Good job Rick Smith!

I'm sure it also helps that it was the Broncos we're dealing with.
