Last time a FA was at a Texans dinner, talking about how nice the people are in Texas, he went back to his team and signed a nice deal with them...not us.

So....this situation is mirroring the previous one in almost every way.

I mean, it has looked a little fishy...the financial advisors posing beside the Texans' private jet??? Why do you do that...you do it because other teams see that pic on twitter and *drum roll, please* it creates demand and urgency.

We need to temper our enthusiasm on this. It's just a sit-down, it's just dinner, and some mushy words from Ed and his hostage negotiator (financial advisor). Think about it.

Wouldn't matter about a press conference or not.
Not necessarily...... the Texans are notoriously tight lipped at times. I also think some negotiating may be left to be made as far as Reed working out here in Houston instead of back in Miami. With vets its not always as simple as the numbers.

Is this the same crystal ball you used to see Barwin would get vet minimum?

Not disagreeing with your overall point but AJ does a lot of working out in Miami and the Texans have never had a problem with it.

One of my friends told me the Texans are looking to sign Casey Hampton, can anyone confirm that?
Yeah my sources are telling me that Hampton is also at this restaurant where they're wining and dining Ed Reed. Apparently Rick Smith walked over and offered him a contract plus free life time supply of steak. Hampton then signed the contract with ketchup and rode his horse back home.

It's the world's largest rodeo.

It has music concerts by top performers.

So....it makes millions of dollars through all avenues of revenue (ads, sponsorships, ticket sales, concession sales, etc.).

The National Finals Rodeo at the end of the season is held in Las Vegas. It is the second largest generator of income for Las Vegas with only Super Bowl weekend being ahead of it.

So yeah, it's a big deal. You want to have the city of Houston and its media focusing on one or the other, not both...or the fan fare isn't as large.

Sigh....I just want Ed Reed in a Houston Texans jersey by the start of the 2013 NFL season.

I don't care how they announce it.

I feel that we don't have as good of a shot at signing Reed as I did earlier today, but it's still a shot nonetheless. I'm wondering who else they have targeted and if they have been in contact with those players.

Clearly y'all don't even bother to read threads. There was a report just a page or so back that they are at Morton's on McKinney.

I would LOVE to see Ed Reed in a Texans' uniform ... the Ed Reed of 2005-2010. I think we could end up being very disappointed in the Ed Reed of 2013.

So your source suddenly went from Morton's downtown to Ruth Chris on Richmond? That isn't just name confusion.

I can't tell you how many times we have re-opened Brennan's of Houston afterhours. I mean... I have gotten calls to come in at 3am because an important guest was coming in because he had a hunkering for turtle soup after a club run. All just for one guest.
