Agreed, but on the Texan's website there is no transaction between Bently and Bruener/Earl. I also posed the same question to Manful in her blog early this morning and have not seen a reply. I guess keeping track of 4 or maybe 5 free agent signings is tough.

Thanks for the input.

NFL life may not be beginning for punter Matt Turk at the age of 39, but it's definitely continuing.

Turk, 39, agreed to a two-year, $2.35 million deal, which includes a $500,000 signing bonus, to stay in Houston. The fact that he was able to get a two-year deal at his age shows how well he won over the locker room and front office with his kicking.

Most punters and place-kickers at his age are either out of football or receiving the minimum salary annually to play. Turk, who has punted for the Redskins, Dolphins, Jets and Rams, came to the Texans last year and had one of his better seasons.

He had a 41.7 gross punting average, but what was most impressive was his 37.9 net, best in his career. His agent, David Canter, said Turk became actively involved in negotiations with Texans general manager Rick Smith to work out a deal that ran longer than one year.

Glad to see he's re-signed, though. He had some shanks during the year, but he did pin teams inside the 20 pretty frequently.

congrats to Turk, though. I'm not sure what to think of signing a 39 year old punter to a two year deal. Must not be much out there to choose from.
