    I do hope they discuss contract parameters. So we'll see what type of cap hit this pick will take.

    Looks like Reggie might be leaving with a contract in hand or at least the start of a negotiation.

    Why else would we be bringing him in but not to do any drills?

    I was hoping they would have him do drills. I'm not exactly sure why they aren't.

    They have probably seen enough. I was kind of hoping that he would do some drills with Carr.

    I'd like to think that we've made up our mind and go with Bush #1 and get him to agree to a contract, but bringing in Young still worries me. Seems like more of a courtesy/appeasement to all the Texas fans though. I hope so.

    Lately I've been seeing a lot of article quotes with no links provided.

    Please - everyone - link your quotes.

    That is exactly what it is... the coaches can never say that they didnt "try" to look into VYs potential. With this drill, they will nod and smile. But the negotations will have taken place a day before, when Reggie was there playing Madden 06 with Coachiak.

    Bringing him in just to meet with McNair and the coaching staff is a pretty telling sign of what is going on. You would think that if they still were undecided on what to do, they would have both Reggie and Vince work out. Like I said earlier, I think that they have seen enough to make their decision. Kubiak has said that he has watched every single game that Reggie has played in multiple times, they had dinner with him last night, and they watched him put on a show today. To me this sounds like they have done all of the football related work on Reggie and that they are bringing him in to meet with McNair (after all it is his money). They almost have to bring Vince in. Just so they can say that they did all of their homework and put him through all of the tests. It would look really bad in the eyes of the Longhorn faithful if they simply ignored him and didn't give him a chance.

    One would assume since it had espn.com in the article it's from there, but for the exact link...

    It is entirely possible that the Texans are bringing in Vince to scout him out in the very real possible case that the Titans draft him. They would then have to compete against him twice a year for a long time. What better way of getting to know the competition?

    Wouldn't they bring in Lienart also since it is possible he can go to Tennessee?

    There is no "ligitimate" reason the Texans would have to scout Lienart. And no, game films do not always tell you everything about a person. There is always something to learn.

    Basically we are drafting Bush. They have seen enough

    We are just bringing in Young with workout drills to make his final case. Young will have to look like a god in these workouts in order for the texans to draft him.
