Default Molden, Slaton & Okam signed - contract details

per the chronicle

Texans agree to 4-year deal with rookie CB Molden

Quote:
The Texans are in the midst of a busy week as they try to sign their four remaining draft picks by Friday morning when the team opens training camp.

They made progress early Monday by agreeing to a four-year deal with 6-1, 197-pound cornerback Antwaun Molden. Molden played in college at Toledo and Eastern Kentucky.

He started 12 of 46 college football games, totaling 155 tackles (94 solos) and 4.5 stops for losses of 8 yards. He also had three interceptions, recovered three fumbles and deflected eleven passes.

I believe it's 4 down....3 to go.

Barber - Signed
Brink - Signed
Adibi - Signed
Molden - Signed

Okam - Unsigned
Slaton - Unsigned
Brown - Unsigned

I wonder if we will be able to get 3 signed in 3 days?? If not, it'll be the first time in our short history.

Does anyone know (off the top of their head) whether getting Brown signed is just a "slotting" deal, or if they're really hung up on a particular item?

There have been no public statements of problems in the negotiations with Brown.

Good news! The last three that are not signed yet are the ones I will be keeping my eye on this training camp and preseason. Hopefully we can get them signed before Friday.

Default Re: Texans agree to 4-year deal with rookie CB Molden

the article just changed. it now says

Texans agree to deals with rookies Slaton, Molden

Quote:
The Texans are in the midst of a busy week as they try to sign their four remaining draft picks by Friday morning when the team opens training camp.

They made progress early Monday by agreeing to deals with cornerback Antwaun Molden and running back Steve Slaton. Both were selected by the Texans in the third round of the draft.

Molden, 6-foot-1, 197 pounds, agreed to a four-year deal. He played in college at Toledo and Eastern Kentucky, starting 12 of 46 college football games. He finished his career with 155 tackles (94 solos) and 4.5 stops for losses of 8 yards. He also had three interceptions, recovered three fumbles and deflected eleven passes.

Slaton, 5-foot-9, 201 pounds, rushed for 3,923 yards during his collegiate career at West Virginia. The Texans hope to use Slaton as their situational third-down back this season.

The Texans are still working to finalize deals with first-round pick Duane Brown and fifth-round pick Frank Okam.
just because I hate messines (ok, I admit it, I can be a little OCD about some things)- can a mod change the thread title to:

Texans agree to deals with rookies Slaton, Molden

Wasn't Travis Johnson a camp holdout for a few days? If he was, I think he's the only holdout we've had in our franchise history.

I don't think he was considered an actual holdout. If memory serves, he only missed a half days practice if any. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
