His injury cost him a lot of money. The $800K is close to the league minimum, but the $300K bonus (included in the $800K), is a nice saftey net if he can't perform. It looks like there is $400K of additional bonus available for games played.

The more depth the merrier! Kubiak stated that one of his first goals as head coach was to try and create as much competition on this team as possible. He has been improving this area year after year. Retaining him only deepens our O-line.

I don't know what to make of this guy. Is he just a serviceable veteran type or are we still waiting to see his full potential?

Anyone?

I would guess the former. I've yet to see anything out of Weary that says "long term solution". In fact, I was more impressed with Brisiel last season. The right side of our line played very solidly with him at RG.

Ok starter, very good backup.

I like the signing, it is good value for the experience he brings.

on the heels of the draft this is more great news, "The Texans say he's made a miraculous recovery and will be 100 percent before training camp begins".

Awesome to see Fred back with the Texans. Quality depth is never a bad thing, especially when we led the league in injuries.

I'm a little baffled by the move. Surely he lacks the quickness and athleticism Gibbs is looking for... and, with Frye, Briesel, Spencer, Eslinger, GWhite, Studdard all on the roster- I would think this is just tossing money away. Can someone explain this to me?

the guy payed his dues, and the front office let him go his own way. It shows mcnair's character once again. would you like to be released right after an injury after giving your all for over 5 years?
