    Rick Smith's desperate attempt at saving his job.

    He's doing a poor job if he's counting on Thomas. Maybe Bill has told him he's a guy he's coached against and likes. Who knows what we do and why we do it at this point. We are the team that passed on Peyton Freaking Manning afterall.

    This is a FUTURES contract.

    This is like... nothing. A non-story. We'll probably sign another 8-9 of these guys and then we might not even take them to the OTAs.

    How odd.

    Before a new coach is on board and in a position of strength (relatively).

    Actually signed 5-6 more with Thomas, but I sort of enjoy the silly overreaction from the "news"

    This. All it means is that he will go into camp with the team next year. Still going to have to beat some guys out to make the final roster.

    I hate to say this, but the Texans need to be rid of Larry Kirksey. I know he has an extremely good resume'; still, like Marchiano - yet not as overt - Kirksey has been going downhill. Our WR corps is talented but underdeveloped. Now, while I realize much of that has to do with the previous system, I'm sick of seeing no-name WRs on other teams, like Patriots and Bengals get coached up to be world beaters, while every one of our guys just sort of meander around. In the WR world, it just seems unlikely that every other team in the league has drafted better.

    Kirksey is a start at giving our young flankers a new perspective.

    My reaction isn't more or less about the signing of a player, but the signing of Thomas. He was traded for midseason by the Lions, caught 5 passes in 9 games, and then didn't make it through training camp. Understand this is likely training camp fodder, but is he even good enough to be that at this point?

    LOL you might want to relay that to Cak. He tries to get cute with them all the time.

    I guess he's been on our radar since this happened...

    He's pretty much the definition of camp fodder so, yes?
