Honestly, I don't think this guy will sign with us. If he thought he could get the deal he wanted and be a starter, he would never have left town. JHMO

There is no way that his agent would let him do that. They will have him go on all of his site visits and then attempt to play each city against one another. It is a business and that is the game.

correct me if i'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure greenwood had other visit's planned but after visiting us first he thought our deal was good enough to cancel all other stops on his tour and sign. not that this means shelton isn't going to be a texan because he didn't sign immediately, just that the players seem to have full discretion when deciding when and where they shop themselves around.

You are correct but I would like to add that the Texans gave Greenwood a 7 million dollar signing bonus. If we were to offer Shelton that kind of money I think he might sign on the spot however I doubt that we will offering that kind of up front money.

Let's look ahead a year and assume Weigert is cut:

Shelton, Wand, mckinney, Pitts, Wade - in some combination looks like a very promising OL. There have been worse problems than having 4 guys on your OL that can play Tackle!

This is not a bad thing.
