    It's not the long-term deal he wanted but it's not bad. Texans TE Owen Daniels signed his $3.168 million tender today.

    That means he's obligated to show up for TC. Here's hoping he lights it up this year and gets the contract he wants.

    He's "obligated", and he almost definitely will, but last year, he signed his tender on June 15, then a week or two later skipped a couple of days of mandatory mini-camp (not TC) before reporting. Just sending a message.

    Things are a little different this year with the rehab from injury, so I would imagine the chances of him not reporting to mini camp are very small, and the chances of not reporting to TC are even smaller.

    To make room for Daniels and Sharpton, the Texans waived 2 rookie UDFAs in S Aaron Webster and WR Trey Stross (injured)

    I think Daniels is going to be fine. He's a good guy and a team player. He's not one of those jack asses that runs his mouth through the media that wants to brag to his peers about his fat contract. He'll play well for us this season and I think he'll have a good attitude.

    Yeah, we can afford him. He will get a new deal, just as Ryans got a new deal. He just has to show us this year he is healthy again. And hop the Graham doesn't have too big a year. Andre's contract will have no bearing on us re-signing Daniels.

    I posed this elswhere:
    Obviously I'm getting way ahead of myself and putting the cart ahead of the horse but...

    They may have to dish out money to their top 4 recievers(AJ, Walter got paid, Jones, and OD) - do you think they will? Then 2 guys off the top of my head on defense that might/are looking to get paid is Mario and Pollard(assuming Pollard has another good year). Again, this is not to say they wont, or they dont want any of these players, or that they're cheap, nothing like that.

    Never was that high on Stross, but thought Webster had a 50/50 shot of making it to Training Camp due to his position. Not really surprised, as he is a strong safety, a position the Texans are decent at.

    My top 5 UDFAs still have a shot!

    Yeah, in another thread I tried to get a game going about UDFAs. Pick your top five, and you get points for how may make the final roster and practice squad. Only a couple other people joined though, so I think its dead.

    I had

    1) Indiana FS Nick Polk
    2) Temple TE/OT Steve Maneri
    3) Northwestern State ST/FB/LB Isaiah Greenhouse
    4) Colorado State OT Cole Pemberton
    5) Wyoming DE/DT Mitch Unrein

    I really think at least 2 of these guys make it on the practice squad.

    Under the circumstances, it may have been short-sighted for OD not to have accepted the top five offered him (supposedly $15 million guaranteed).........but, certainlly money-wise as it turns out, the Texans can actually consider themselve quite fortunate that he didn't.

    Considering there's no cap in 2010, and no CBA in place for any subsequent year, you'll have to find one who's psychic.

    Are your tickets paid up? Mine are. I also bought three hats, a Steel Blue JJ jersey for me, a battle red Demeco for my 13 year old, a set of chairs, and a couple of Texans trailer hitch covers...

    I think we can afford the both of them.


    The biggest issue, is whether Kubiak/Smith truly believe OD is special, or a product of the system.

    For the record, I think he's special... but you never know with Smithiak and the abundance of Tight-Ends we've acquired.

    Owen Daniels sucks!!!!!! :jk:


    This subject has been idle for about an hour now and I just wanted to get it moving again.

    The Texans handled this okay. He blew a knee. This is his third blown knee IIRC. Why wouldn't the Texans FO be cautious???

    Absolutely they should be cautious. And as I posted somewhere (:drunk:),
    if he shows he is healthy he will get a nice contract. If he loses a couple of steps and Graham and Casey show well, look for OD to be in Balt. next year.
