Default Re: Dreessen will choose between HOU & DEN Friday

I would not be surprised either way...

I'm sure he feels some loyalties to Houston, and I'm sure he would like to go home to Colorado and have the chance at being Peyton's #1 TE...

I doubt the Texans offered him much. I think he will pick Denver because of Peyton Manning and his ties to Colorado State.

I would guess we offered between $1.75M-$2.0M/yr. I wouldn't be surprised to see him pick Denver either.

He's gonzo. The chance to go home and play catch with an all time great will prove to be too tempting to pass up. This offseason continues to leave me very concerned.

I know he wasn't an IMPORTANT clog to our team but he was dependable and I will miss him if he goes...I think I'd actually be sad. Yes, I said sad.

If I were him I'd chose Denver.

1) He'd have Peyton Manning at QB
2) They need a TE so he'd get paid more
3) He's have Peyton Manning at QB

It's a win-win.

Me too. I'd have my bags already packed.

1) He's from Colorado
2) He played at Colorado State
3) His QB would be PEYTON MANNING (1st ballot HOF, can talk the rest of his life of playing with him)
4) He's likely to be offered more money in Denver
5) Denver is just as likely (if not more) to win their division

I think he's married, and if his wife is local with family here that's probably a consideration ? Or maybe she's also from Colorado ?

It will come down to:

1) Money

I bet he goes to the place that offers him the most money.

I hear where you're coming from, but depending on your definition of important, you could argue he was. A lot of the time when we were running a two tight end set - whether they were standard pass plays or bootlegs - the progression always seemed to be Andre-Daniels and then safety valve (Foster or Dressen). Or if AJ was down, it'd be Daniels-Walter/Jacoby and then safety valve.

You knew teams were going to put their efforts into shading whoever we had at #1 WR and OD, so this often allowed Dressen to go one on one, or sometimes be wide open; people on here in the game day threads often called "goaline TD to Dressen" before it happened.

Hopefully Graham or a TE we draft can fill that role.

Fake John McClain ‏ @FakeJohnMcClain

Dreessen has a tough decision to make. Play w/ a QB who didn't play all yr last yr, or w/ a QB coming off an Anne Frank injury. Decisions.

If he's smart, he'll go to Denver. Regardless of how much money the TEXANS offer, they will figure out some way to screw him over. I don't know how much loyalty there is in the Denver franchise, but, there is ZERO in the Texans!! Get out while the gettin's good! JMO
