Default Banks re-signs

Good news to hear.

Quote:
HOUSTON - The Houston Texans announced today that they have re-signed free agent QB Tony Banks and signed unrestricted free agent LB Frank Chamberlin.

The Houston Texans announced today that they have re-signed free agent QB Tony Banks and signed unrestricted free agent LB Frank Chamberlin.
Banks (6-4, 230) enters his fourth season with the Texans. Last season, the ten-year veteran, appeared in five games completing one of two passes for 16 yards.

Banks, the teamís backup quarterback, played in seven games in 2003, starting three when starter David Carr was hampered by injury. Banks finished 2-1 as a starter, completing 63 of 102 passes for 693 yards.

Chamberlin (6-1, 238) has spent the past two seasons with the Cincinnati Benagls. The five-year veteran was originally drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the 2001 draft. The former Boston College Eagle was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a torn bicep he suffered in the 2004 preseason.

Known for his special teams contributions, Chamberlin has totaled 38 career special team stops, while appearing in 48 games. On defense, he has 44 career tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery.

I was glad to read that on the main page of houstontexans.com. I'm glad Banks is back, the Texans are in great shape at QB with Carr and Banks.

Glad to have him back... just hope he's cool with returning to his role considering there was discussion (I thought) that he wanted to go be a starter. Guess with the other QB's jumping around... not much room out there.

Teams with QB situations basically did not offer him the opportunity. I did not see anyone actually bring in him on the other boards or rumor sites that I go to .

The NFL Europe season is over before training camp starts. Basically it means the players miss the spring mini-camps and off-season fitness program. This is why you don't see the Texans sending rookies, particularly 1st day rookies, over there, because they would rather have them learning the Texans' system and in the Texans' fitness program. Ragone and Symmons have been through that so now they have been sent for experience.

Banks is functional and does not cost overly much. We have Carr who is tough as nails so we need a QB that can just hold the fort till he gets back. Lord forbid something happening to CArr.

due to Testaverde's age and tenure his base salary is higher than a Banks. So we do not need to spend for someone who can lose a game for us anyway. We just need a brace for the damn not the whole damn ya know.

The difference is $100k but that is really irrelevant since Banks signed about twice the minimum salary.

IMO, Banks is a very good signing for us. Reasonably solid vet who allready knows the system. Rags is in Europe getting some close to NFL game experience, so I think we are in pretty darn good shape at QB. If we had that type of tallent and backups at all positions we would be "In tall Cotton" as the saying goes.

I really think Ragone is probably for the money a better deal than Banks, If Carr gets hurt during in the Regular Season we going to lose might as well get a better Draft Pick, I agree about the Playoffs but if Ragone could stepup in that suitation and win us or play good in a playoff game then we either Trade him Trade Carr (dare I say it) For good value on the market. Right now I dont think were at the point of worrying about the backup QB O-line RB and Defense (its good but it could be better) is too valuable to the cap space.

I am going to pretend like you did not say trade D. Carr. But yes Ragone is a restriceted Free which would let us get a draft pick or trade the sucker if he has a good NFLE season and shows some promise. Why not do the damn thing...

Dave Ragone signed a 4 year contract so 2 years remain and he will go directly past RFA to UFA.
