    I read the whole thing. In summary it says the Texans are talking to the redskins to move up to the sixth spot to Grab Quinn cause they think that the Vikings will grab him with the seventh spot. They say that the Texans have been in some serious discussions with the Redskins.

    I think it's more to force Clevelands hand to take either Quinn or Peterson at 3 so they don't have anywhere to go in a trade down with the Vikings. How would you feel if the Browns trade with the Vikings , Vikings take Quinn and the Browns take Peterson at 6?? Alot of fans will be sick.

    I think the Vikings have the 7th pick now, so if they traded w/ the Browns, and we traded w/ the Skins, then Peterson would be ours first, if he was there.

    I still think the Vikings have faith in Taveras Jackson.

    Exactly, That's why we make the trade with the Redskins so we can secure either Quinn or Peterson.

    redskins want to move down, better do business with them. i expect a bidding war between the redskins and houston/miami. bring it on.

    I guess this part of your post must be confusing me. A lot of Houston fans?

    I really don't want to wade through 30 pages of posts to get just one piece of information.

    If the Browns and Vikings traded, and Adrian Peterson was still on the board at 7 after the Texans swapped with the skins at 6....I'd guess that Houston fans would be mad. If Peterson's there at 6, I bet we bust of Carr for the 8th and snag Pete. then Cleveland fans will be sad.

    LOL geez, because ESPN knows all. Just ask Reggie Bush how that Texans uniform is fitting these days.
