    Not good news for the Texans and Schaub's negotiations

    Agreed, but it makes the approx. $27 million he's due over the remaining three years of his contract (including the $10 million option bonus) look downright thrifty on the Texans part.

    True. Can't help but to cringe at what his deal could be if he posts 3 more years of what he did this year though.

    It's the damn draft's fault. All the highly successful vets want (and deserve) to be paid more than their rookie counterparts who have proven nothing on a professional field.

    Each year new records are set by the massive amounts of guaranteed money that these rookies are getting. If a guy who has never even played a snap can get $60 million then shouldn't the top players in the league be getting double that?

    Time for the rookie salary cap to be put in place.
