We spent a 2nd and one of our 3rd round picks this year on a guy who was taken 16 picks behind Carr. He has speed, experience, potential (whether fully realized or not) and has been looking for greener pastures. His cap hit will only be 700-800K through 2006.

I'm anything but a big-time CC fan, but this deal looks like a good move from virtually any angle. I could give a **** what gangs of MB trolls think about this deal. (especially those from Oakland and Dallas who're still steamed about getting spanked by us)

At the very least we get a game-tested, experienced return man & corner to proivide some much needed depth. Time will tell guys / gals....time will tell.

Davis may be crazy, but he's crazy like a fox. And he just screwed the Texans for several years.
If there is any formula for getting a reenergized 1st round talent, it is this scenario (from the previously posted article):

Quote:
"It should be a good move for Phillip," said one league source, adding that Houston defensive backs coach, Jon Hoke, was very familiar with Buchanon, having recruited the former four-sport star at Lehigh High school in Fort Myers during's Hoke's days as defensive coordinator at the University of Florida. "The Texans have a disciplined coaching staff that should be able to get the most out of him."

One more thing...

Buchanon costs $1.5MM over 2 seasons.

Another good read...

The Texans traded a 2nd and 3rd pick for Buchanon. Don't forget that we still have a extra pick in the 3rd.

I like the trade:youth, speed, and cheap. Not bad. I also think our teams strong character will straighten him out. Although I will be sad to see glenn go ...but I guess it is business.

This strengthens my opinion that Cass is Capers our building our team in the NE Patriot mold . Stocking up on LBs, getting rid of high priced players (shaper, possibly glenn), and getting players that other teams dont want anymore that have major upsides(PB= C.Dillion)

YES screwed us for several years. That's what it will take for us to make up the lost draft picks.

It's not really that big of a deal. He's a former first rounder anyway whos only 24(will be 25 by seasons start). You wont get much younger than that at the CB position.

Im telling you, Vandamer on FSN said the Redskin local paper (forgot what it's called) reported they were willing to give the 9th overall pick and a second or third rounder. We must of really snuck up in this deal.

Do you really think he will play the next two years under that contract?
