    The negoiations on Reggie Bush have been going back and forth like a yo yo!
    With the news of Reggie's parents home the Texans gained an advantage and have been playing hardball with it. Now comes the revelation that Bush was threaten(blackmail) by the home owner. The top teams have been notified. From the appearence of things Bush may be free and clear of this matter. Bush has signed with Addidis so perhaps he no longer cares to play for the Texans at their price.

    Another factor is he may want to play for Norm Chow again. This draft could get real crazy in a hurry. I believe McNair is under pressure by the owners to keep the 1st pick price down. Therefore, based on the fact that negoiations on Williams have begun in earnest, I believe Williams will be the Texan's pick.

    Mario doesn't want to play here. He also is asking for more than Alex Smith did last year as well.

    Screw those other owners.......... The idea is to put our team in the best possible position to win.....

    If that means Reggie Bush @ $30 million, then that's what McNair is going to do. Just because we are the Houston Texans, doesn't mean we can be the leagues whipping boy..... they can try that crap with next years #1.

    Mario is said to want the same money that Bush was getting.

    VY would ask for more money than either of them.

    Not a VY pusher, but are we really sure about that? He wants to be in Houston bad and he'd never get THAT much otherwise anyway. Maybe we could trade Carr for WHATEVER sometime in the next year and it would be like a long, slowly evolving TRADE DOWN.

    Heck, nevermind. It's probably still a bad idea. :)

    The DE position is worth big money; I think it's the third highest paid positon: QB-LT-DE...

    Here is further confirmation of what I have been saying.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft06/news/story?id=2424706

    If Bush thinks we're tough wait till he tries to deal with Adams or the NO owner. He really has a lot to loose, but it looks like pride is going to get in the way of his contract. I think they are seriously looking at Williams and might even switch again to someone like D'brick or Davis. Taking Williams actually disrupts the whole top of the draft picture. Its going to be interesting. I keeps saying McNair and money are going to be an issue and they have been so far.

    If Williams want to much, then look for a trade for whatever we can get. You may not like that, but I think that is becoming a real senario at this point in time. Tomorrow is going to be interesting. Both sides are digging their heels in. Its going to become a matter of who flinches first.

    What I find less than amusing is his family is mad at our decision to discuss terms with Williams. Wasn't it his family who rented a house? They are making very bad moves for Bush. They have allowed Houston to play hard ball with their actions. I would say forget Bush now he will not enjoy playing in Houston.

    I am of the ilk that we are trading down if there is no contract in place by midnight tonight with either Bush or Williams. Adidas and Segal should be on the phone with the Jets and Texans as we speak.

    Agreed. I think we go down, we only go to #4 and take multiple #1's which would really provide a lot of young depth on our roster. It is incredibly unlikely, aka impossible, to right a 2-14 ship in one off season, but the sooner we get the talent working together, the faster we will be in reaching the playoffs.

    I can't wait to chant 'We are #4!'

    If Bush and the Texans are not on good terms , that hurts our trade leverage . I'm not sure a trade has been seriously negotiated anyhow .
