    Good. Let's keep it that way. Dunta can write "Pay Me, Atlanta GM" on his loafers when he goes in for an interview with them.

    Think they'll franchise OD? Kind of handle the situation with OD like they did Dunta?

    OD is restricted. No need to franchise him.

    So is Demeco too I believe so don't need to use it there. Texans don't like to use the franchise tag anyway, I believe D-rob was the first.

    So who of our UFA's could garner the tag? Off the top of my head the biggest ufa is Kevin Walter, don't think they would use it there or need it for that matter, I bet he sticks around.

    Priority wise for all FA's, I hope to see Demeco and OD locked up soon.....although I know they will drag out the OD thing now because of the injury.

    We actually have several RFA's, with D-Ryans, OD and Pollard being the most notable.

    Other than possibly Drob, nobody's really deserving of a tag. Even that could be argued.

    DRob was the first to be tagged by the Texans. But IMO, we have never had the talent deserving of one due to being a young team and by a really crappy previous coaching regime.

    I'd reeeeaaaaally like to see D-Ryans get locked up with a worthy contract. I'd allow OD and Pollard a "prove it again" year by tendering them

    Why would they tell him? They're under no obligation to do so. Maybe they're just protecting their interests. I definitely would enjoy listening to McClain trying to explain the stories if we franchise him. Dunta would be irked and that to me... is hilariously funny. I love seeing a man be mad about being paid with double digit millions. It makes for good comedy. Friggin' people sometimes.... *shakes head*

    That being said, I don't care what we do. Dunta moves on? Fine. If he remains a Texan? Also fine. I just hope the Texans know what they're doing. We need more wins.

    That mostly describes how I feel about "The Dunta Situation" but I am a little worried what effect Robinson will have on the team if they try to keep him against his will. He is one of the few Texans to not only be in a position to cause a disruption but also be entirely capable of it. I just think that if he wants to leave it's best to let him leave. Get something in return if you can but let him leave.

    But if they choose to keep him and he's not going to be a distraction then that's cool.

    Dunta was previously quoted as saying he would not mind if the Texans franchised him.

    Is there any other way that he would be kept here against his will?

    He'd be a very good # 2 CB but is just not a # 1 CB and therefore should not be paid as such. Unfortunately, we've yet to find someone better than him since Aaron Glenn was cut after his rookie year so if we keep him its gonna be for more than he's worth.

    0 INTs last season SHOULD be a tough sell for Dunta's agent. Its not like teams were completely avoiding him either... VY bounced one off his chest on MNF!!!

    Dunta.

    I think I have heard of the guy.

    Is he the guy with the special shoes?

    Oh, OK. Yeah, I remember him now.

    Wait. What position does he play? I think he's that guy I remember from a few years back, but maybe I have him confused with another guy.

    Yeah, put me down as Could Care Less.
