    Dreesen....Leading TD grabber for us this year.

    What do you guys think his future is with the team?

    This is the last year of his contract I believe. UFA next year...

    Do we bring him back? If so, what is a fair contract for him?


    I fear that some team is going to give him a nice contract that we can't realistically afford to match....But he is super valuable as the second TE...

    What say you on this topic?


    ********Mods can one of you fix the Title?????

    Who? :P

    I think he'll be back - I don't think he has shown enough that another team will break the bank to make him an every down TE.

    He is always like that forgotten man that teams and fans forget about that has a big play or gets an important TD. He does nothing flashy, but just seems to do his job. He's got to be the most unappreciated guy on the Texans over the last few years. Not that he's disrespected or anything, but we always think of Daniels and question where Thor is. Dressen has been a reliable play maker for this team for quite some time now. Kudos to him on another important TD yesterday.

    He has a knack for making plays. He's never going to be Antonio Gates or Tony Gonzales, but you need guys like him on your team. I love the way he goes after the ball. He fights for the ball.

    Yep...

    The guy just shows up, works and makes plays when his number is called...
    He's a pretty good blocker too..

    I think re-signs with the Texans. I just have a feeling he likes the players and coaches on this team and realizes that he gets more opportunity here than he likely would elsewhere. This is a great system for him to be in and get catches/touchdowns. Plus we're really fickin' good now.

    I think we let him go for more money than we can offer and we go next man up.

    Remember we have some big names coming up for contract renewal.

    How much do you think is a fair contract for him?

    I think he's making about 900,000 right now...

    From Dreesens viewpoint probably the best thing about yesterdays win was that
    Kubiak is now assured of getting a new, multi-year contract and the smallish TE Dreesen like OD is a custom fit for the Texans, and he will most likely not find a better opportunity elsewhere in next years NFL free agency.

    Is 6'4" considered small for an NFL TE? Not all of them are freaks like Gronk.

    Dressen beating Hill to make the team, and Graham for playing time should not be discounted. Add to that his contributions on the field and some team will at least look at him as a possible signing.

    He's the "Bill Speiers" of the Texans.

    Can we fix the title or go draft a 'Joe' Dreesen?

    I wouldn't say that he's start for most teams in this league, but he could spot start for every team in the league. Its all gonna depend on the market that's out there for him. Let's just hope there isn't a team under the cap by a large amount that's willing to throw out starter money for him. I wouldn't be upset with him for taking a better offer than what we'll be able to pay for him.

    I think we'll make an offer to Dreesen but I think someone else will make a bigger offer and we'll allow him to walk in FA, I wish him the best. I think we'll move on with Graham and finally get to see what he's got.
