    Maybe we should have taken Jacobs in the first and we still could have gotten Howard and Scharping.

    I would like to see us resign Miller to a cap friendly 2 year contract. I think most posters are under valuing him. He has been pretty dependable and productive considering the OL he has had to run behind and the crappy play calling by the OC/HC.

    https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/2018/rushing.htm

    Look at the total rushing yards, Y/A and fumbles. His stats are better in 14 games than many of the more heralded big names with more games.
    He was a Pro Bowler last year. Plus, there are no off the field issues (Zeke, Hunt), can block and catch out of the back field.

    No, he is no Arian Foster, but the stats show he is very good.

    But be honest.. Don't you think he'll ask for MORE this next contract knowing the Texans shape out the backfield PLUS coming off a Pro Bowl selection?

    Ezekiel Elliott, who likes to push around women and security guards. He was suspended 6 games for the former. It remains to be determined for the latter.

    Maybe. But I don't think his value on the open market is near what he is currently earning. I would like us resign him for about $2 M/yr depending on this years performance. He will be 29 next year and his numbers are very similar to Jordan Howard, who earns less than half of Miller and is younger.

    I am really PO'd that we didn't bring in Adrian Peterson last year. We could have had him cheap and he is still productive.

    I wanted AP also!

    2 million a year? I don't think he'll take that much low pay... I also don't think O'Brien will let us pay him that low

    Here's Lamar Millers current contract details:

    Lamar Miller signed a 4 year, $26,000,000 contract with the Houston Texans, including a $4,000,000 signing bonus, $14,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $6,500,000. In 2019, Miller will earn a base salary of $5,500,000 and a roster bonus of $703,125, while carrying a cap hit of $7,203,125 and a dead cap value of $1,000,000.

    Peterson isn't Texans worthy. Hopefully this is about to change with Cal in charge and the new regime coming in.

    I think they should send Miller up the middle more this season on first down and then have Watson throw on second down. That will catch everyone off guard this year!

    Who is on the team and who isn't?

    AP practically begged to come to Houston and we didn't even give the dude a interview.
