IIRC, they've been pretty consistent as a team that makes absolutely no statements regarding transactions until they are official.

News of that magnitude would've leaked by now imo. I hope it's true, but not counting on it. Texans need to be aggressive, they have no other option if they want to show the fans they are serious about the playoffs.

Unhappy Re: Free Agent Activity involving Texans 2011

Quinton Mikell signs with the Rams.
I was hoping he would be our backup plan if we couldn't land Weddle.

I guess we'd better be sure we get Weddle.

With that out of the way, I just wanted to say that Eric Weddle reminds me of a pokemon called Weedle. Weedle was a pretty useless pokemon, but maybe it evolved into something interesting...I don't know.

Must spread rep for the reference. Beedrill (the pokemon Weedle evolved into) was lame, though.

It's all about that butterfree maaaan!

As far as Free agency goes...Looks like Texans are holding true to form and not signing any big name players. Building through the draft the right way and on the right track Yadda yadda yadda....

Players are only getting "Agreements" right now, not actual signings
there haven't been "agreements" with new teams today anyway besides UDFA's the most action was from re-signings

So does that mean no one gets Nnamdi?

The Jets fans don't know, neither the Ravens, Cowboys, Bucs or any other team fans.

It's clear to me that Nnamdi has not agreed to any deal and is weighing his options or that whoever he has agreed with is being very very quiet about it.

EDIT: Schefter just confirmed as much too. He said Nnamdi is taking his time we may not know until Friday. Said The Bucs and Ravens are lurking but the Texans and Jets are the most likely.

I think whoever gets an agreement from him will like to have that done before then though so they can plan. Would hate to have the Texans miss out on FAs because they are focused on getting Nnamdi and comes Friday he signs elsewhere. I'm sure ever other team on Nnamdi's list thinks the same.

I was just getting ready to post the same thing, just different words.

If we were guaranteed to NOT get him that would mean he signed somewhere else and that would be out. I'm hoping that the Texans are just being quiet as usual and will announce the signing on Friday when he signs on the dotted line.

I just have a feeling that the Texans are going to disappoint. I think they are gonna play that same old tired ass line that they tried, but in the end the two sides couldn't reach an agreement. Then, they will sign some third rate CB, and say they have faith in their young players. I would never be so happy to be wrong in my life.
