Default Texans sign 7 players to future contracts

1/5/2009

Signed TE Courtney Anderson, QB Alex Brink, CB A.J. Davis, WR Glenn Martinez, WR Mark Simmons, G Adam Stenavich and T Cliff Washburn to reserve/future contracts.

http://www.houstontexans.com/team/Transactions.asp

Is Glenn Martinez the possible future returner?

That's what I remember. I wonder what the circumstances of his release were. I also wonder if we might pick up some more Denver cast-offs when the new coach comes in and brings in his own guys. We might be able to get some pretty quality system guys that way.

Default Re: Texans sign 7 players to future contracts

Martinez was a decent KR for the Broncos back in 2007 but his role diminished this season due to Eddie Royal. He may be worth a look .

Stenavich was a good player at Michigan but hasn't done much in the pros.

Anderson started out well his first three seasons in the league and could be a good red zone threat at 6'6" and 270lbs, but he hasn't played since 2006.

Everyone else was already with the team.

My verdict: Besides Martinez, who could possibly take Jacoby Jones' or Andre Davis' roster spot (unlikely), this is just a bunch of camp fodder. Move along, folks. Nothing to see here.

I liked Mark Simmons a lot this past pre-season, but barring injury I just don't see how he makes it with the players we already have. Seems like he needs to go to another team lacking WR depth to stick.

Courtney Anderson intrigues me too as a 3rd TE prospect.

Brink is camp fodder unless he has improved a lot. I liked Boyd a lot better this past pre-season.

Default Cliff Washburn is back

The last cut from last year's TC is back, after spending a year in teh CFL playing for the Toronto Argonauts.

Miller is the second subtraction from the Argos in two days. On Wednesday, the team announced that offensive lineman Cliff Washburn had signed with the Houston Texans of the NFL.
Edit: My bad, this should be merged into this:

FWIW, D-Rob was at the East-West practice this week and Channel 13 caught up with him and asked him about negotiations for a new contract and he said in so many words that he and the Texans were a long, long ways apart, but he held out hope.

Seems about right. The team thinks he's an injury risk now, and he thinks that he worked his ... off to get back after a career-threatening injury, lit a fire under a team that was struggling, and helped them pull an 8-8 season out of nowhere. Dunta is a good player who has been working for his big pay day for a while now. He brings a lot to the team. He'll will be re-signed.

Robinson was signed to a 5 year deal worth approximately $10.7M. While that's a big pay day for most people, according to Manfull:

Quote:
Robinson wants a contract that will pay him what the top cornerbacks in the league receive. But he realizes it won’t be easy because he is coming off a major injury. Even though he returned midway through this season after a full year of rehabilitation, he wasn’t able to return to full strength.
LINK

The top CBs in the league receive around $10M a season and $20M guaranteed. He's basically looking to make what he made in 5 years every year.
