3 things of interest for you offseason people out there: #1) Asante Samuel came off his best season ever. He publically said he doesn't want to follow in the footsteps of Ty Law, Deion Branch, David Givens, and Adam Vinatieri in leaving the Patriots. However, he also said he is primarily looking for a big pay check in the area of a Champ Bailey type deal (7 years, $65 million). It was also noted that his arm has a tatoo that reads, "Get Paid" Given the Patriots reluctance to pay their big name players and make stars out of nothing, expect him to go elsewhere. #2) The Texans have reportedly shown high interest in targeting Adrian Peterson in the draft at the #8 pick. Apparently the Texans FO said they preferentially want to try and get Joe Thomas, and if he falls they will draft him, but since he probably won't make it out of the top 5 (Arizona), they are targeting Peterson #3) The Texans have also reportedly targeted Jake Plummer to replace David Carr if he is released by the Broncos. Clayton made the same sort of statements that the Texans offense depends on someone being able to create outside the pocket, and that Plummer is one of the best QBs in the NFL at throwing while running. While not a star, he'd be an upgrade. He also made the point that up until last year, Plummer had shown significant improvement playing with Kubiak.
