    Didn't hear the interview but judging by his twitter feed recently, he REALLY wants to return and doesn't wanna be anywhere else. He's almost lobbying the front office to give him a call, its tough to read cause I'm not so sure the FO feels the same way. I do, I like him at LG more than Studdard, hurt or rehabbed or whatever condition he'll be in.

    He might have to settle for a money loss coming off an injury.

    I'm pretty confident that's their play. Let him shop, if nobody bites then he's got little to no leverage in a negotiations. I'm sure they'd welcome him back for pennies on the dollar. But I don't see them pursuing him until they are certain they aren't going to have to negotiate. If it happens it'll be on their terms.

    For the record I'd love to have him back as veteran depth or starter but I am pulling for drafting a C/G higher than lower and letting it work itself out. If that means Pitts comes back and his knee is better and he starts in front of a young G/C for a year or two I'm happy.

    There are things about Studdard's game that are exciting but I just don't how they can be "loving him at RG" as McCain puts it.

    Pitts/rookie G-C/Studdard
    Meyers/Caldwell/rookie G-C
    Caldwell/Briesel
    Winston/Butler


    at the start of camp sounds lovely to me. I don't care who's first on the depth chart at those interior positions either.

    I like the cut of your jib. Although Kubiak seems to be a lot more enamored with Studdard than the rest of us... If you asked him he'd probably say Studdards the #1 LG on the depth chart right now.

    Studdard is #1 LG on the depth chart right now because Pitts isn't on the roster. Something else to remember here. Pitts has not medically passed yet and won't for 1-2 more months. Occasionally you will see teams sign their own injured vets before passing medical but it's rare for another team to take such a player on. Pitts may very well dangle in the market until that time.

    That's what I expect to happen. He wants a 1 year deal so he can "prove he can stay healthy" so he can re-test the market next offseason (when there won't be any football :(). I think it would be a great deal for the Texans to keep him on for a year and draft a LG/C somewhere that is not a project. (Pouncey)

    I don't know how enamored Kubiak is with Studdard. He's had mixed comments about him. I have seen what he sees in him that he likes and he does possess some intangibles but I just think his lack of athleticism is a huge knock against his ability to be a good LG.

    I don't put too much stock into McCain saying "so and so is the starter.

    The "Kubiak loves Studdard" talk could just be a smoke screen in order to sign Pitts for less money. If Pitts feels like he is the better OG then he may feel he has some leverage over the FO.

    I hope if nobody signs Pitts this offseason we give him a chance to reclaim his job in training camp. We wouldn't have to overpay for him by then and it would be nice to give a true iron man like Pitts the opportunity to take back his spot he's held down for so long.

    IMO Smith is a depth on a good team, not a starter. So we just over paid a back up.

    He was a back up when he was a Jets after having started for the Dolphins, that concerns me.

    I hope they don't sit on this guy as the only OL move before the draft. And if they do not draft an OL guy in the top 2 rounds, then this guy is playing over the current mess at OG.

    ESPN Radio is running an interview with Chester Pitts right now. Said he's talked to Detroit, Cincinnati, Denver, Miami and one other team (didn't catch the 5th one). Said he's still talking to the Texans, and Houston is still where he wants to be.

    I guess I'm the only person that saw this on channel 11 the other night (video interview with Pitts in link).

    A couple excerpts from the interview are that he's doing everything in his power to remain here and:
    I hope they make it happen.

    Does anyone else feel that if The Texans make this deal with Pitts happen that it will go a long way in the locker room?

    I mean, right now you got a couple of not so disgruntled players in Demeco and Owen. Perhaps showing the loyalty to Pitts will let them know that we are going to do everything we can to keep them?

    I better be careful with the phraesology on this one...

    I don't think Pitts is the locker room leader that he is perceived to be on this board. Therefore, I'm not sure making exceptions for him would have a net positive impact. The good feeling for seeing a player taken care of could be offset by questions of what makes some players special after their usefulness to the team has waned, especially when viewed by top performers who can't get extensions done.

    Pitts would ne welcomed back by players id perceived he could do the job. Chester may still have a year or three left as this was his first injury. Team is doing the right thing and same thing with RFA by taking it slow. Texans are in the driver's seat. I think the Smith signing has moved drafting an Oline player further down the priority list.
