The Texans are involved in some slow moving contract negotiations right now. While every case is different, are there patterns. Some things that come to mind are: - the players are turning down good offers due to greed. - the team is taking a hard line approach; the player has been franchised/has been tendered/is under contract and is easily replaceable so there is nothing to talk about. - the front office has some analysis paralysis; fear of making a costly blunder stops them from making medium to high offers to medium to high performers. - this is strictly business as usual in the NFL and there is nothing to discuss. I'm sure that as with most topics there is no black and white answer, and that reality is a combination of these and other factors. Anyone have any thoughtful opinions on the issue?
