This is great news! This one signing pretty much saves the Texans offseason from being a disaster. Losing Myers along with Briesel and Winston would have been hard to overcome next season. Yeah they could be replaced but 3 new and 2 veterans would take time to mesh. The key was keeping Myers because he is the qb of the line. The rest is gravy. I don't care for Caldwell but I don't think the coaches think he is the answer either so he will probably be a stop gap until a rookie or free agent learns the ropes.

I think they will draft at least one ol in April in the first 3 rounds and sign some undrafted free agent olinemen for depth. Once again, great news! The Texans FO played some big boy poker with Myers and won this time.

I'm happy for Myers too. He got a good contract coming from being a late round pick to being one of the best centers for a zone blocking system.

Great move but losing Brissel, Winston on the oline and then Mario isn't the best thing. I'm all about teams gelling

Didn't need Mario, so he can walk. Winston was giving up far too many sacks, probably a cap casualty. Briesel, maybe but you have Shelly Smith and Caldwell that can come in a replace, not to mention they haven't really talked to any FAs yet...


I think everything is going to be just fine.

I was close. I was thinking $5M/yr, but was flexible. I definitely didn't think he would get an $8M/yr Mangold contract.

Rick did good.

So losing 2 people on a O line that finally gelled after years of abuse us cool and just easy to plug in people in? I agree with Mario but the Oline was the bread and butter after years if abuse.

But there's a salary cap. When you're up against it, decisions have to be made. In Butler and Caldwell, the Texans felt they had something to fall back on. They'll need to step up. But, they're not replacing Pro Bowlers. And both been on the team for 3 (or more) seasons. I'm giving the Texans the benefit of the doubt on this one.

I've been so busy in TNZ and drinking beer, I didn't even see this. I'm glad to see it. I think.

Not having a clue as to the actual reality of the Texans salary cap, I hope this is a good thing, and we can still sign our draftees this year and our free agents next year.

Otherwise, this sucks. LOL

relax, they can both be upgraded as players. far as people I like Eric & Mike much as the next Texan fan but remember its a buisness. Myers was key other than Brown best Rick kept him. Quicker we can move on the better
