Default Re: Texans and Duane Brown reach contract agreement

Great news! Love how Arian and Brown were able to be signed at non-astronomical amounts. Seems like they value winning as well as money, feel like they got fair deals and wants to stay in a good situation to possibly win here than go to some toilet bowl of a franchise like a Cleveland or something.

Sidenote: How in the hell did the Browns dup someone into paying in the BILLIONS for the pile??

No, I didn't say anything like that. I said we (Texans) got a discount on his services, he's still being paid well enough. If he were to hit free agency (probably would be f-tagged though), he could have made at least 10 a year from teams with lots of cap space, like the Bills, Jags, Colts, Bengals etc. A lot of teams are going to have to spend extra next offseason to meet the 90% cap minimum, so the market will be very good for players at premium positions. It will be a player's market next year.

My thoughts, as well. Smith has taken his fair share of lumps, so we have to give him props when he does something fantastical like this news.

Awesome! Congrats to D.B. and hopefully a lifelong Texan protecting our QBs blindside.

Maybe he's just following Arian's example and accepting a good but not great offer which allows the Texans more flexibility to keep other players.

A good read:
Quote:
Pancaking the Dallas Cowboys: Jerry Jones boils as Duane Brown's $53.4 million contract extension continues Texans' roll

It's good to be a Houston Texan.

And you don't even have to be Duane Brown, the priceless left tackle who is now signed to a pricey new contract extension (try $53.4 million over six years) with the team, one that will keep the 26-year-old in Houston for the prime of his career. Brown's deal is just the latest sign of how everything is rolling along for the franchise that's been perceived as the secondary NFL team in Texas for the length of its existence.

While the marketing machine Dallas Cowboys sputter about — looking absolutely inept while threatening to get Tony Romo killed in a 3-0 preseason win, dealing with a wide receiver arrested for allegedly beating up his own mother, waging a silly debate in the media (what else is new in Dallas?) between owner and coach about what the team's expectations should be this season — the Texans quietly get business done.

It's like the difference between Kim Kardashian and Warren Buffett.

One makes a lot of noise and lives for the headlines. The other actually accomplishes something...

I would like to think that's the reason AF and DB signed these friendly contracts. After all, what good is it to get a huge contract if the team has to cut some of it's better players because they can't afford them all? Heck, Foster didn't get all he could've gotten, and we still had to release or cut a number of good players because of the cap. I think the Texans are playing it right. Sign your key players to good deals, release who you can't sign, then draft to fill in the holes.

Default Re: Texans and Duane Brown reach contract agreement

Outstanding news, props to Rick Smith for getting this done and for a price that's good for both sides.

As for Barwin, I think we have more leverage on him due to our depth at the OLB position and ability to draft that position well. While I very much want to extend Barwin as well, I want it for a reasonable price tag. I think we'll get that deal done as well, as I don't see Barwin as the type to squeeze us for every nickle he can get. Hopefully these guys realize we're trying to put together a team to make several deep playoff/Super Bowl runs.

Unbelievable steal of a deal! Duane clearly believes in the Texans and wants to stay. And yes, I must give Rick Smith his due. But Duane deserves just as much love for signing the deal. It means he wants to be here.

I wonder if the fact that Houston is considered a Superbowl contender or at least has the window open is a reason Brown was willing to take less money than everyone was expecting.

Thats likely a part of it. This team is absolutely loaded top to bottom with talent .... I could see other players taking slightly smaller deals to play for a contender .... not significantly smaller but smaller.

Nothing replaces a Superbowl Ring at the end of a career.

Smithiak, kicking butt and taking names.

I take good players taking 'discounts' as a sign of a good organisation.

Reported numbers are great for both sides. Brown gets a nice bump and Texans get a cap friendly contract.

Look, I hate to bring it up...sorta, but Foster and Brown's deals combined > Williams.

So much goes into all that, it's hard to say. We're pretty stacked for talent, & we've got a great offensive mind on offense (Kubiak) & defense (Wade). We could very well have a dynasty on our hands. If he continues to do what he's been doing, he could definitely be considered off the HOF
