Another reason why this is such a great deal. Once the team is convinced Buchanan is going to be a good player for us, they can offer to renegotiate his contract. Instead of signing him to a, hypothetically, 5 year $25 mill contract with a $10 million signing bonus in 2007, they can say... In addtion to the money you've already made for this season and next we'll extend it three more years. We'll give you an $8 million signing bonus and a 5 year deal worth $18 million starting today...

that would be a better deal for Buchanan because of what is left on his current deal and it would also be a bargain for the Texans.

I've heard all my life that your first instinct is usually right. I hope that doesn't apply to football trades because my first reaction was .......... OMG NOOOOOOO

The thing is we had no idea the Raiders would bend over so much the next year. We were looking at a late 2nd round pick when we went for Hollings. Weren't the Raiders in the Superbowl in 2003? We had no idea it would be the 2nd pick in the 2nd round or whatever that pick would have been. The Texans were playing it smart and one upping the other guys by offering a LATE 2nd round pick, until bam the Raiders, in a four point stance, get raided themselves the next season.

A late 2nd round pick was right along the lines of what Hollings was valued...many teams were offering up early 3rds for him.

I don't recall anyone rationalizing it as a free pick. There were a number of people, myself included, that said it was very reasonable to guess the pick had the value of a very low 2nd rounder since the Raiders had just been in the Superbowl. Is there anyone who really wants to claim they forsaw them going from 31st pick in the round to #1?

This has some bearing on Buchanon's circumstances as well. The kid comes out and is having a great rookie season and then gets hurt preventing him from playing out the season and going to the Superbowl. He comes back as a lone shining figure with 6 INT's, 2 run back for TD's and 2 punt returns for TD's as the team disintegrates around him with the QB figting the coach, the coaches fighting each other, players hitting players, Woodson in his yearly salary gripe and public coaching criticism. Real conducive environment to learning and feeling appreciated there. New coach comes in his third year, new system, bad personnel moves--heck forget AJ beating Buchanon, Gaffney beat Woodson in that game. Yeah, he could have been more patient, but I can also completely understand why he would want to play somewhere else--like for a team with a top DB coach that knows him, a good buddy, an experienced mentor who likes teaching more than TV interviews. Seems like a good gamble (and there is some risk to it) on having one of the strongest secondaries around--how many teams sport three top 20 draft picks in their secondaries?

There will be no way till Phillip gets on the field to know if this is a good trade or not...the nature of the business is that sometimes you take chances and I'm sure that is what the Texans are doing. They see that he's got alot of talent and took a chance.

I would not put Glenn in the same class as Darrell Green. That guy was a genetic freak playing as long as he did and so well. He represented the Redskins quite nicely.

If we used the exact same picks to trade up to get an unproven corner, then we would have spent three picks on him... the 2nd and the 3rd that were involved in the trade and the 1st that we got in the trade. You think that's what we should've done? WRONG!!!
Where we are sitting in the 1st, we wouldn't be able to get Rolle or Jones... and 13 is too early for any of the other CBs IMO. So, we would have been faced with taking (possibly) a second round CB @ #47... most likely, P.B. will turn out to be a better player than any CB we would draft @ that pick...

with the 2 pick we had the best we could have done is move up to the 30 spot and there would not be a better prospect than buchanon at that spot, and definately not at that price.

I got a kick out of DeAngelo Hall from the Falcons, who D-Rob completely eclipsed as a top-round DB draftee last year, talking about the Texans' acquisition of PB on NFL Total Access last night. Hall said the Texans were "crazy" to do that, because they have two established starters in Glenn and D-Rob. He added gravely that "somebody's gonna have to go inside" now to play the slot/nickel, like it was a huge insult that would destroy team chemistry.

Of course, he also said that he was given "instant respect" as a rookie DB and couldn't get the same INT numbers that "other rookies" did (meaning D-Rob, probably) because other teams didn't want to challenge him. Uh, dude, think it might also be because your backside was warming the bench due to injury for most of the regular season last year?

Hey Don, I think Buchannon needs to pass the physical and finalize the paperwork. That should happen today.

Wow. You would think that Hall, a CB in the NFL would know Dunta played the slot/blitz position last year.

Texans definitely got hosed on ESPN draft coverage yesterday. All they did was mention the trade with Lions' acquisition of Kevin Johnson. Then they went on to fuel talk in Washington with what's going on there for the next ten minutes. No respect it's never too early for bulletin board material.

I really don't find it too surprising that Hall doesn't know how effective DRob is on the blitz. He's probably turned a blind eye to DRob since he had such a good year, and Hall was out with an injury. If he doesn't see Dunta's success then he doesn't have to acknowledge that DRob might have been the best CB coming out of the draft last year. The fact that he implied playing inside was an insult shows that he doesn't follow the NFL that closely. Ronde Barber played inside when the Bucs went to nickle and dime packages because he, too, excelled at blitzing. Yet he was the Bucs starting CB. The more versatile the player the better.

I think that we should go after Barron at 13, due to the fact that the secondary won't need as much help with Phillip as a 3rd corner. The offense, in my eyes, is only 1 or 2 pieces away from being great, so I say take these pieces this year early, and with your 3rd's, grab one of the hybrids that's left, as there are 3 or 4 that could be good who will still be there. That's all i got for now, later.

DL!!!!! Need more DL`s.You can never have enough DL`s

It was pretty clear watching MeAngelo on TV that he was VERY aware that DRob had made him look shabby with his 6 ints. Couldn't even seem to get out his name when talking about it. Then of course he says "I couldn't show MY stuff cause I was injured". Which while true, is just him making an excuse rather that giving DRob props. IMO, it was clear he was not happy that DRob had such a good first year.

Hall wasn't necessarily talking down about Dunta, you know. Other rookies had some picks as well like jason david.
