    I know you stated it already but people get a little twitchy when it comes to money. Especially for an autograph...

    ALL proceeds go to his charity. It's for a good cause. It's not going into his bank. A fin is totally reasonable. I wish I could go but being in Austin...

    Is he going to be personally delivering the $ to Nigeria this offseason?

    Or will he be staying in Houston working out with the new training staff?

    I am sure that you can ask him on Friday at the event. He seems to be the type that interacts well with his fans and answers questions that people have....

    I did go to the event tonight. I didn't stay for the movie though. I was able to get a couple of items signed so I won't have to wait in line at All Access for it. It wasn't as packed as I thought it would be...but I do appreciate a Texans player that actually does things with the fans...many players don't.

    The Texans didn't give him up for Dunta. They gave him up because he was getting burned worst than Petey Faggins.
