    They don;t have the luxury of waiting until after our game with the deadline today at 4 p.m. You don't trade away a player because you are trying to win today, you do it for the future so this game doesn't really matter in the scheme of things

    I honestly didn't think it was going to happen, hopefully it works out.

    I like this deal. Has the ideal hand size of 10 1/2 inches. Tall (6'3") and solid weight (230) to go with it. Although he may not run the 4.38 he did at the Combine years ago, he has developed the vet cunning to make up for any loss.

    Wasn't my first choice (preferred DJax), and I would have actually rather made a move for an OT, but I'll take it.

    Just wonder how his contract works. He's scheduled for 4.5 million this year and 14 million next year.

    Im not in love with it, if you wanted a sure hands guy Golden Tate would have been my first option, hopefully Coutee gets back healthy at some point and provides some NFL speed to keep defenses honest. At least Thomas is healthy, there is that.

    4th round pick? when reports were saying a conditional 5th or 6th got it done? LOL weeeeee its the Texans why am I not surprised.

    Contract details...we have him for 2018 and 19...I have thought the Texans needed a big bodied guy whether or not Fuller was healthy. If Fuller can come back from injury for 2019 (at any point) the Texans now have truly dynamic pass catching corp in 2019.

    Even in 2018, it is really good already.

    You mean the Denver beat writer who says thats what he "thought" would get it done? but according to Rappaport the guy who has proven to have inside knowledge said Elway was standing fast at his request for a 4th rounder.

    Rick Smith would have wasted the 4th round pick anyways.
