tree dollars and fitty cents over 2 years. He has an incentive clause that will give him a free slurpy from 7-11 for every game started.

Default good addition

I think the guy would prosper in Houston. It's not like Arizona had the best program to learn from. He's got talent, athletic, and with some of the characters were getting into H-Town....might add some nasty streaks on the O-line!

well nothing is done yet, it was just an offer and they mentioned it pretty quickly at the end of their sports segment didnt go into detail. He could still refuse it or w/e.

i think he will sign with us because we are the only team he is visiting that is offering him a chance to start at LT that is the position he wants to play...everyone else is offering RT, G, and back up positions...so i see him coming here...carr breaths a slight sigh of releif

I know that it would be one step in the right direction to helping improve the line.

The rotating LT curse might finally be lifting ?

I sure hope he signs, and we can end that curse.

We have no cap issues that prevent us from signing a guy or two like this if we want to.
