    His injury cost him a lot of money. The $800K is close to the league minimum, but the $300K bonus (included in the $800K), is a nice saftey net if he can't perform. It looks like there is $400K of additional bonus available for games played.

    No kidding. I guess being part of one of the worst units in football for a few years running also didn't help.

    The more depth the merrier! Kubiak stated that one of his first goals as head coach was to try and create as much competition on this team as possible. He has been improving this area year after year. Retaining him only deepens our O-line.

    i like the signing. hopefully he can make a solid contribution this year after his injury

    its going to be interesting to see how this plays out with the possibility of spencer coming back too.

    Glad to ssee him stay. If he recovers well and plays well, he may get another contract.

    I don't know what to make of this guy. Is he just a serviceable veteran type or are we still waiting to see his full potential?

    Anyone?

    I would guess the former. I've yet to see anything out of Weary that says "long term solution". In fact, I was more impressed with Brisiel last season. The right side of our line played very solidly with him at RG.

    Ok starter, very good backup.

    I like the signing, it is good value for the experience he brings.

    on the heels of the draft this is more great news, "The Texans say he's made a miraculous recovery and will be 100 percent before training camp begins".

    Easy there, Ringo. It's not like that statement's way out of line, is it?

    Awesome to see Fred back with the Texans. Quality depth is never a bad thing, especially when we led the league in injuries.

    I'm a little baffled by the move. Surely he lacks the quickness and athleticism Gibbs is looking for... and, with Frye, Briesel, Spencer, Eslinger, GWhite, Studdard all on the roster- I would think this is just tossing money away. Can someone explain this to me?

    David Carr and his NFL Sack king title in 2002.

    EDIT: maybe that should be sack jester.

    the guy payed his dues, and the front office let him go his own way. It shows mcnair's character once again. would you like to be released right after an injury after giving your all for over 5 years?

    The whole team sucked in 2002, well except billy miller right? they still werent the worst line in history, just very mediocre. Carr just made them look like the worst in history.
