    This smells of cheese and cheap wine.

    who cares? he should be cheap enough

    this is what we've done the last two years.. fill positions with guys in FA and draft BPA and let the FA's try and step up.. its worked ok so far

    Exactly. I am pretty sure teams went out of their way to throw at him when he was filling in to Newman.

    Um, no. I have about as much confidence in Reeves as I do in Faggins. Reeves will do nothing but frustrate Texan fans.

    Hell we would do better bringing in Brian Kelly than fooling around with him.

    I have no problem with this. Bring him in for cheap. The season doesn't start for another 6 months... That give our coaching staff plenty of time to have him and the other DB's compete.

    If they think he does a better job with what we're trying to do they keep him, if he doesn't beat out the Rookie, Fred Bennett, Von Hutchins?, Petey Faggins, Jamar Fletcher... he will get cut.

    I trust them in deciding who would be better for our team. Just because we sign somebody doesn't automatically mean they are going to be on our 53-man roster. Kubiak is all about bringing in competition at every position.

    Reeves is not competition, he is just fodder for the WR to crush, run over, beat the you know what out of.

    He is even more useless than Faggins.

    Let me be a bit more objective than at first. Reeves is okay when in zone or as an extra DB. Decent enough in run support and has better ball skills than most of our current corners. Not a player you want to stick on the man to man island though.

    The Texans are just padding areas of need so they can be flexible in the draft .

    I dunno, but I wonder if a really talented CB who can cover elite WRs one-on-one isn't the rarest, the most highly valued commodity in the NFL ?
    And the more I watch the NFL the more I realize that a corners ability to run-protect is not even that important if the cover skills are there. Guess that's
    why teams didn't worry too much about Deon being uninterested in tackling ?

    I agree ... Deon knew what he got paid to do .

    There was'nt that much contact when he returned punts either .
