Really liked Henderson as a prospect. Big athletic guy.
Hopefully his health issues and 'pain management' don't limit his availability.
Feel like he's good value on a one year prove it deal.
Tom Lemmingcalled him "a cross between Jonathan Ogden and Orlando Pace," two of the best offensive tackles in the NFL in the 2000s; Sports Illustrated called him "probably the most polished lineman of the past decade."
I remember this kid coming out of High School 10 years ago, tons of fanfare, a real celibrity who was planning to go to USC but backed out after Reggie Bush was busted putting USC in hot water with the NCAA.
At least we can end the narrative that the Texans won't take players with a drug past.
If he hits, the narrative will now be "see if the Texans would have been signing all these guys all along..."
He might. Henderson was a pretty good RT as a rookie. Maybe he can get back to that?
yes, he has elite physical attributes that suggest he could play LT even. just so much missed time and unknown influence of a serious medical malady
Not since the 80s....
I'm rooting for Henderson, because he's the key to the OL this season.
And yes, they should've been signing/drafting these guys all along. It wouldn't upset me if rd 3 went like this. Harrison/Hill/Richardson. After using the rest of the 50 mil on Suh/Gaines etc.....
Would you trade Seattle's picks back to them for Earl Thomas and the Texans 5th? I would. Then sign Suh/Gaines.
With the front 7 and adding Thomas/Colvin/Gaines and moving KJax to S would make for a really fast defense.
Think of this
That's a championship defense and a SB contender if Watson can stay healthy.
Thanks for your dream team and wish list, but I stop designing my own and commenting on other posters' "never going to happen" player/transaction listing and depth charts several years ago. Helped me stop confusing what I like to happen with what should happen with what actually happened.
anyway, my original comment was specifically concerning players with "drug" other types of "troubled" backgrounds.
It could happen, the McNair's gotta have the vision and spend the $$$$. The cap space is there. I hope Henderson signing is a sign that McNair is changing his stance on pot users
I was hoping fans would recognize they were making things up all along.

Such stances only existed in your head to begin with.

Cleanest team in the NFL.
See above post
I'm hoping the same thing
I believe I read that CnnnD explained that his use was under a physician's order/prescription. I also agree that under the circumstances, this would be grounds to sue the NFL and a medical exception made.
CnnnD, how about reposting your comments to this thread.
Hey maybe McNair could underwrite the legal costs to contest the leagues policy against Hendersons doctor recommened marijuana treatment for his malady ? The league office is in NYC, so we are talking a New York venue, right ? Very high-profile (no pun intended) so the case could also serve to get some positive PR with the leagues union membership who would probably be wildly supportive of any effort to reduce restrictions on pot consumption.
Does McNair seem like this kind of guy to you?
Based on some of the things he's done and said make me think he's high AF sometimes
