    I might be in the minority, but I'd take Mawae on the Texans.

    I don't know if he's asking for too much money, or if he fits in a ZBS scheme at all, or if he wants a contract that's too long, or what.

    But I can't see how it would hurt bringing him in here and letting him compete with Myers for that job.

    I'd take him in a heartbeat over what we've got now.

    It might, just might, have something to do with being dang near 40 years old. Call me crazy, but it just might.

    Maybe... but he did start 16 games last season and went to the Pro Bowl.

    We might be able to squeeze a year or two out of him. Maybe.

    guy had a pretty big arm injury as I recall and is 39. Plus he outed Young a year or so ago.

    He has to expect that if he will not take a backup role he will not hear his phone ringing anytime soon.

    Chris White is more than likely worse than 31 starting centers in the NFL. But that one ......
