    Per a news update from ESPN790 in Houston, the Texans have expressed interest to DomDavis in a long-term contract extension. No details as to amounts and Delotte(sp) inferred that it is not a guarantee that the deal will be done before the start of training camp.

    8/6 upate per ESPNradio

    $22 million w/8 million in guarantees through 2009.

    Atleast the Texans made a move toward signing him long term even if it's just a gesture.

    Definately good news if we can get him signed to an extension. Hopefully we'll get it done before the season gets underway.

    This is the perfect time to sign him to a long term deal. I dont want him busting out with a 1300 yard ground, 500 yard recieving year, and have to pay him for it.

    Of course there is TO, and ST players, who want a new contract after one year...

    Well that is the reason for the delay isn't it? I thought CC wanted to check with him first before submitting the contract to DD's agent. :rolleyes:

    I'm happy for DD if he can get a nice bonus and some security. He has earned it.

    so do the Texans sign him to a medium-priced long-term deal now and we hold our breath next off season if he has a huge year or not sign him long term and be glad when he's hurt for 1/4 of the year and fumbles 4 times in the first 2 games ...

    I'll take the under on that bet.

    No, you sign him now for a good but not elite contract and then when he has a solid or even break-out season you congratulate the management for being wise enough to put a bird in his hand now rather than five birds later.

    This place is going crazy...

    Did you just now lowercase the A in "Admin" for added effect or was that already done?
