Man, if they cut D'Brick, I'd sign him in a heartbeat. Put Brick at LT, Brown at RT, Slide Winston to Guard.

Man, that would be a stout O line!

Would be nice, but our priorities should remain on the other side of the field methinks.

I do not plan on judging the Texans on where Nnamdi signs. I will judge them on whether or not they made an attempt, a serious attempt to get his attention and bring him here. For me there is no excuse to not be in the thick of this. If the Texans were never really thinking they'd get him and never really serious about making space to add him then that tells me the Texans are a shit franchise that's serious about the bottom line and not about winning. If they fall short but went for it then I can certainly accept that and will.
How we ever going to know how much effort they put into bringing him here? I'm with you, if this front office isn't going all out to get this guy, I'm beyond forgiveness for them.

Default Re: Nnamdi and Houston

I'm really wondering when this salary cap manipulation is going to catch up with some teams. If they're not careful it's almost like paying your debt by getting more debt.

No way they cut Ferguson. They gave him a 6 yr $60M extension LAST year!! He's got like almost $35M guaranteed!

If we do in fact miss out on the Nnamdi sweepstakes I'll be disapointed. I really really hope we can be the frontrunner for Joseph and get him under contract soon. If not him, I mean it sounds like Cromartie could come here. He's far from my favorite but I'd rather him than nobody.

Can anyone point to a single Free Agent Jet from last year that has agreed to terms with another team? I know there are some out there that will probably go elsewhere like Edwards and Cromartie, but until they do I don't think they can sign a new free agent because they finished the season in the top 4. Unless of course the new CBA changed that rule.

If what we've been reading and hearing over Aso over the past 48 to 24 hours is true, then I think this is the likely sequence of events:

1. As soon as the Texans are legally allowed to contact FA, they called Aso.

2. Rick Smith, Kubiak, and Wade probably confessed falling in love with him.

3. The Texans make their offer soon after the small talk, which was likely a very big offer.

4. Aso and his agent like the offer, but want to see what teams like the Jets are going to offer.

5. Jets finally call and profess their love for Aso too and things are finally getting exciting.

6, Jets and Aso exchange contract figures and Aso comes away interested and intrigued by the possibility of playing in the Big Apple next to Darrell Revis.

7. Texans call back and remind Aso about them being able to offer more than the Jets. Aso then says, the Texans are still in the running but he needs time to consider all the options.

8. Meanwhile, the Niners come with a big offer and the added option of Aso being able to stay in the West coast. Aso bumps Texans to the third immediately.

9. Rick Smith and Kubiak know at this point it's unlikely that Aso will be a Texan, so right now they are preparing their scripts on how to explain to their fan base how they were not able to "sell" the Texans. Kubiak will retort to the familiar but nonsensical "it's on me" line. And Rick Smith will probably try to make up by signing as many street free agent cornerbacks as possible in the history of the NFL.

10. Say hello to Jacques Reeves and Petey Faggins.

Agreed, the worst thing about Nnamdi going to the Jets is the media. It'll be the Miami Heat all over again.

Jets | Have not asked Darrelle Revis to re-work deal
Wed, 27 Jul 2011 13:15:59 -0700

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis said the Jets have not asked him to restructure his contract at this point. He would not say if he would be willing to do so if asked.

One thing for sure. Texans first preseason game should be a bit interesting. I'm still hoping he'll be a Texan and I still have a inkling that the media is just drooling all over the possibility that's why we hear so much from the Jets side of things.
