Perhaps because it would be inversely proportional to the Texans chances to signing Aso.

Other than some reports that come off as hunches, things have been eerily quiet on the Nnamdi front today. It doesn't really seem like there is a front runner, and I can't say with 100% certainty that any team is indeed pursuing him. The top FA usually goes first, their soon-to-be big contracts can hold teams hostage while all other teams sign everyone else off.

If the Jets retain their own guys, it could limit them in trying to get a guy like Aso.
It's also been said that they want to resign Cromartie also. I remember hearing that early in the day but the problem is Cromartie will always put money first and wants to test the market.

They did, but they still have room to offer Holmes and the word is they'd still want Holmes.

But there could already be a "deal in place" and people have kept it quiet, knowing the dollar amount they need to work around (the amount Aso is getting is already known, which means other players' agents can use it for negotiations with their own players).

I find it hard to believe that for the past several months there hasn't been any type of talks between Aso and teams who are interested. In fact, I think there's a deal in place. There, I said it with certainty.

Somebody has Haynesworth'd a deal with Aso and his agent.

I had this same thought process, I just figured it would be already announced if so.

And it would be just like McNair to have planted his recent comments, what with all his talk of "we're going to TRY to be aggressive," and "it will be fluid..." and other low-key phrases.

The Texans organization is very secretive. Hell, they flat out LIED to David Carr when they told him we were drafting Bush...but went right ahead and drafted Mario instead.

I wouldn't put it past those guys. Kubiak looks like Stalin to begin with.

Losing ninja focus. Again. Dammit.

Well honestly I think the only thing we have going for us is the fact that no one else seems to have anything going for them in the Nnamdi stakes.

In other words, for what Aso is wanting...other teams feel they already have a secondary that's good enough without him? And teams that might ordinarily want him are too consumed with things like finding a QB or a WR or a RB or other positions.

Which means, MAYBE, the perfect storm exists for the Texans for a change?

Screw the ninja focus. I'm now 100% sold out. DAMMIT. And you're partly responsible.

Let me ask this...

Why in the holy hell would the Jets want Aso when they drafted Wilson in the first round last year? Then they would have Revis(1st rounder), Wilson(1st rounder) and Nnamdi(huge investment). Never would happen...

wilson is relatively cheap as the 31st pick in the draft so doesnt affect it one way or the other...

consider that the texans have a 2nd rounder (harris) and 2 first rounders (kareem and allen off waivers) on their books & are going after nnamdi hard

Or could be his agent trying to drum up interest in his client


Quote:
Citing a source familiar with Plaxico Burress, the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the free agent is drawing interest from the Texans, Rams, and Bears.


This sounds like an agent-driven report. The Chicago Tribune is adamant that Burress is not on the Bears' radar, and the Rams aren't expected to consider signing him, either. The Texans make a small amount of sense -- Kevin Walter can do many of the same things. This story may be a ploy from the Burress camp to attempt to drive up Plax's price tag with the Eagles.

I heard that Allen makes a pretty good amount.

If signing aso is iminent I would not be surprised if they cut him to save a lot of money.
