    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    MW AND Chris Meyers AND Joel Dreesen AND Mike Brisiel AND......whoever in the hell else not named Andre "but ya doesn't have-ta call me" Johnson will be shown the door before Foster walks outta here. Dude is getting a check and calling his shot. Hopefully he's got the good sense to know that 5 mil a year is la-la-land money and the team needs all the cap room it can get to win a ring or two.

    No need to tag him as he's an RFA.


    I expect them to work out a longterm deal satsifactory to both parties.

    The article by AJ doesnt really have a thing to do with Foster .... other than saying that the rules have changed when it comes to compensation if they were to lose him ..... Its the offseason and .... he has to write something.

    He knows , You know and I know .... Foster will be a Texan next season.


    Take it to the bank.

    There are teams who have way more cap space than the Texans. So if they put the tender on him, there may be teams who are willing to give him more money than the Texans can possibly match.

    A more certain alternative is to franchise him or threaten franchising to get a long term deal.

    I am hoping that the Texans and Foster find mutually satisfactory contractual terms.

    buddha.

    On a serious note: Mike McCartney

    Haloti Ngata has the same agent.

    Also here is a story about Mike and the group he works with.
