John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL
Now that Glover Quin is signing with the Lions, Texans will turn their attention to another veteran safety to replace him.

Any details on the contract? Haven't seen anything except 5-year deal. I won't blame the front office if Lions overpaid to blow Houston's offer (whatever it was...) out the water. But if not then folks will have reason to be pissed.

Okay, I get it, we can't resign everybody because there are other teams bidding for our players. But why the hell can't we sign a FA? It's not like we need the cap space to sign Glover Quin or James Casey.
Packers and Patriots have lost (or are losing) the following players and have not re-signed any:

Welker, Jennings, Eric Walden, Patrick Chung, Sebastian Vollmer, Charles Woodson, Talib, Brad Jones, Donald Thomas, and others.


Let's allow the process to happen. We are 24 hours in and there are over 400 free agents on the street and somewhere between 50-70 of the top 100 free agents to hit the market still unsigned.

Damn, I really like Glover too. Sucks to see him go, we need to sign a legit starting Safety because we have nobody on this roster that's quality, imo.(Save Manning.)

The problem is though that the NFL is very much about "If you aren't getting better then you're getting worse."

They can't just stand pat for a year, that one year backwards could be huge.

Teams like the 9ers are getting better. Broncos may be getting Wes Welker whose perfect for Manning.

The Eagles seem to throw money around every year.

I think it's a legit question if the Texans manage their cap well enough. Signing Watt is a no brainer obviously you give him a blank check...but you know I'd rather sign all the best players I could right now, win a superbowl...then cut and let a bunch of guys go and try over again then doing nothing with the money and having it stashed away.

I just think in the NFL you need to think about short term as much as possible. Players sometimes have extremely short prime years and if Watt is going to play like this and Andre is on his last legs then we need to do all we can to give these guys a legit shot at winning a championship next year, not two years down the road.

Any ways, that's just how I feel. It's not about Glover leaving. He's a good player but I'm just hoping the Texans aren't going to just sit here and hope some first round draft pick is going to pan out right away for us...because that isn't going to work and meanwhile all our best players get a year older and the window gets a inch closer to being shut.

This. Losing Quin is upsetting, but you have to lose the Quin's, Barwin's & Casey's to pay Cushing & Watt in the future. In fact, it wouldn't bother me if all Houston does this off-season is extend those two...

Get used to the post rookie salary cap NFL. Teams will focus on getting value from players on their rookie contracts. Most players will not see a second contract from the team that drafted them. Most free-agent signings will be for depth.

Eh, that's probably about right. Quin's job was to play deep center field and he let people beat him for the long ball. I wish him the best.

Default Re: Lions interested in Glover Quin *update* SIGNED BY LIONS

The Niners were standing pat with Alex Smith for awhile and the Broncos were stuck with some mediocre-poor QB play for awhile.

The Broncos will soon find themselves losing players; I'm thinking next year.
I haven't looked into the Niners situation yet so I don't what kind of cap situation they're in.

Nowadays, most teams that are perennial play-off contenders don't have a lot of cap space. The good players always want more money on their next contract. That's just the way it is; you can't keep all the players, and you can't sign big FA every year unless you let go of some good players yourself (so that you have the money and or cap space.)

Cant wait to see how much he signed for. Has that info come out yet... I can't find it. If he signed at or below 4m per year I'm going to be pissed. If they overpaid him then I understand the decision. I think Mikell or Huff would be good siginings. Landry wants 6m per year so that is not going to happen. Hopefully we can get a good deal on a Safety and take a look at Roy Miller. He did a great job against the run last year and should not cost too much to sign.

Based on what he signed for I'm guessing Quinn wasn't in love with the texans. 5 mil a year isn't outrageous. If he wanted to stay here maybe he'd have done 4.5...

Or maybe the texans didn't want to pay anymore than 2 or 3 mil a year for him.

I know about the Rick smith rumblings though. Seth Payne had a not so glowing story to tell a couple of days ago where the texans supposedly played mind games with him trying to get him to take a pay cut.


I don't think you have to be buddy, buddy with guys as a gm, but they at least need to have some respect for you.

Fiasco, there was an Eagle fan that used to post a lot on the old Texans board.

I learned from him that Reid is usually pretty tight with contracts.
He cut or trade away expensive players all the time.

And let's not forget, that dream team should have been called Nightmare in Philly.
