Texans | Riley Signed - from www.KFFL.com
Wed, 11 May 2005 15:37:04 -0700

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Houston Texans have signed free agent OT Victor Riley (Saints) to a one-year contract. Complete financial details were not available, but it is believed Riley can earn about $1 million if he plays regularly. Riley will be given the opportunity to win the starting left tackle job with the Texans.

Thank you! He played Right Tackle for the Saints. Does anybody know if he has ever played LT?

Looks like he is the 2005 version of Marcus Spears (Spears replacement), also he's really large @ 6'5 340. Looks like he started 15 games last year. I haven't paid much attention to him myself.

from what i've seen he was one of the better OT's in the game about five years ago...he is aging...but what he brings is a quality depth guy who can challenge wand for the starting LT job...i do not see him winning that job though...it's good to see the texans bring him in...he was the highest rated RT left on the free agent market...he's played in the league for a long time...he knows how to play the position really well...what i'm glad to see is that we are bringing in these veteran tackles that can help mentor our young o-lineman...guys like marcus spears, and victor riley are highly respected around the league because they are team players...they work hard and they know what it takes to make it in the league for a long time...i think seth wand would be wise to learn all he can from riley

From his NewOrleansSaints.Com profile...

Quote:
Entering his third year in New Orleans, Riley is established as a key member of the club's offensive front. The seventh-year veteran started all 16 games at right tackle in 2003, contributing to the offense with his superb drive blocking. Riley was a starter from 1998-2001 for the Kansas City Chiefs. Started two games and appeared in 14 contests in 2002, contributing to the Saints offense with his superb drive blocking while also seeing extended action on special teams. He was initially tabbed to work at left tackle for Kansas City when Riley was drafted in 1998, but was thrust into the starting lineup at right tackle in just his second NFL contest. He quickly proved he could perform at a high level and proceeded to start the Chiefs' final 15 games at right tackle. He did not leave the opening lineup until suffering a broken leg five games into the 2001 season.
Seems to me that he'll be a back-up that will provide decent insurance if Wand or Wade were to go down...I'm not sure of his pass blocking ability, but it looks like he's a good run blocker...

I know he was good enough for the Saints to draft Jamaal Brown.

Ex-Chief Riley pleads guilty to assault charge

The Kansas City Star

Former Chiefs tackle Victor Riley pleaded guilty Friday to assaulting his wife during a 2001 domestic disturbance.

Riley, who played last season for the New Orleans Saints, had reached a diversion agreement with Johnson County prosecutors after the 2001 incident in Overland Park.

But he was charged last November with driving while intoxicated, and Johnson County prosecutors moved to revoke the diversion agreement.

Riley appeared in court Friday with his attorney, Kevin Regan, and agreed that he had violated the conditions of diversion.

He pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault for ramming his car into another car occupied by his wife and infant daughter.

District Judge Pro-tem Frank Gilman accepted the plea and found Riley guilty of the felony charge. Gilman scheduled sentencing for July 3.

Riley, 28, will receive probation under terms of the plea agreement, but he will be required to serve two weeks of shock time in jail.

Sounds like a winner.


Hopefully there is more to that story..

I would like to say "At least he wasnt actually BEATING his wife.. since that would be worse than wrecking your car into hers, IMO"

but the fact that his infant daughter was in the car with his wife just makes me mad.

I believe he led all offensive lineman in false start penalties last year. His false start penalties were in the double digits. He's a great run blocking tackle, but he got Aaron Brooks killed last year also including all of his false start penalties which took the Saints even further out of 1st down range. He also got beat up by Saints defensive rookie Will Smith. I don't think he'll beat out Seth Wand, but he should bring depth to the offensive line.

What are the odds that he doesn't make the final roster? I think he was brought in to compete with Wade and Wand, but if he can't win the starters spot, I think he will be released in the final round of cuts. JMO

I think Vinny hit the nail on the head when he said that Riley is more likely to fill Spears' role this season. He might be able to play RG if he's pressed into action due to injury, but I think he's got a legitimate shot at making the roster. I doubt he'll be the starter though.

Hey guys Victor Riley is a stud. He has size, power he is a great run blocker. He will make the team and probably be a starter somewhere on the line. Capers likes to run the ball and Victor Riley is his type of blocker. I would say he is the best FA OL availible. I am stoked that we got him. This tells me that we are gearing up for a major push towards the playoffs.

Looks like backup O-line depth to me. Not a bad idea all told.
