Default Re: Duane Brown signing?????

Just to note pick number 27 and 29 agree to terms or signed today. In other words, the texans and Brown pick 26 should have a really good idea of where his slot is and any "holdout" should be over with quite quickly.

Default Re: Duane Brown signing?????

I wonder if the issue for a lot of these signings right now isn't simply that the agents are stretched to thin. I imagine a lot of agents have a handful of guys all trying to get a contract done when camp starts this weekend. My guess is teams have to wait for meetings and even a return phone call in some cases right now.

Honestly, I won't be worried until he starts missing snaps. It seemed like Okoye didn't get signed until the first day of training camp last season too.

If Brown is not signed by the end of tomorrow, i will tend to believe that the uncapped years may be the source of divisiveness as concerns both the duration of the contract and the acceleration of salary from 2010 on.

This issue about the uncapped years ? As many contracts as has been completed by now for this Draft class, I'd think there would already be a template for that situation ? Is each players situation re that issue really unique ?

Default Re: Duane Brown signing?????

I'm pretty confident that he'll be signed tomorrow morning. Unless he really is pitching a fit over the potential uncapped year, there's absolutely no reason why his salary, guaranteed money, etc. shouldn't be pretty well slotted, especially with the additional signing of brandon albert. IIRC, gosder cherilus is signed now too, so that makes all the first round tackles done, and with a few picks after being inked as well, there doesn't really appear to be anything for him to hold out for, unless they're bickering about which cell phone plan he wants.

[If he doesn't sign today] With the LT curse history of the Texans and the inordinate need at LT to get anywhere, that his agent knows that the Texans have, with uncapped questions, he and his agent may be wanting to see some additional front loading to his contract with an early option (2010) to redo his contract if his performance is exemplary.

He's got less than 90 minutes to sign or he will be a holdout. My sense is he might miss a practice or two at most, but it's hard to see this lingering long.

Default Brown signs

After an all-night negotiating session, the Texans have avoided the second official holdout in franchise history.

Left tackle Duane Brown, the first-round draft choice, signed a five-year contract early today and will be on the practice field for the first workout at two-a-day sessions.

Defensive tackle Travis Johnson missed a day in 2005 when he was the first pick, but general manager Rick Smith and agents Ken Landphere and Andy Ross completed the deal in time to get Brown, who played at Virginia Tech, in training camp on time.

As soon as he arrived in Houston, Brown was inserted into the starting left tackle job ahead of veteran Ephraim Salaam. Now the coaches don't have to worry about him missing any practice time.
