    When was the last time you saw a botched special teams snap? I can't recall one. I think this is a good re-sign.

    Minor move yes, but it is encouraging that they are still at work over there on Kirby.

    That wasn't Weeks snapping, that was the guy that got hit with the PED violation. I forget his name. Anyways, Weeks has been with the team for the past two seasons, making minimum money. Nice gig for him and for us.

    Yeah, he does. He looks like a tall midget, if that makes sense.

    The sort of guy you'd rather keep around than allow to move on. Good re-sign.

    I came into this thread looking for this exact comment.

    TBH, money spent even on the LS is money not free to pay :mariopalm:

    He has been making minimum every year, so unless this deal is more than that (probably not) or the Texans were planning on only having 52 guys on the roster, then this money was going to be spent anyways. It's not affecting their other free agent offers.
