    I watched him a few times when he was with UH. Sounds like he's been kickin booty in the CFL.

    He got some talk from draftniks on this board when he came out of UH.

    Yeah, he was a decent LB considering how poor UH's defense was. I wasn't certain where he'd get drafted, if at all, but thought he'd at least be a nice UDFA for someone. Maybe he elected to go to the CFL?

    16 sacks in a season's pretty good even for the CFL.

    It's worth a shot. Sometimes good players slip under the radar (Tramon Williams, anyone?). I can't imagine he would be very expensive to bring in.

    Plus he's from H-town. I remember seeing a bunch of his family and friends at the Shrine Game that year, which was in Houston. So, I'd reckon we'd have the upperhand vs the Vikes.

    There were many including myself that wanted the Texans to draft Hunt.

    But because of having to draft between 2-4 TE's every yr there wasn't enough picks to take Hunt. So now if Gary and Rick want Hunt they're going to have to overpay.

    I still don't think he'll be that expensive, relatively speaking. I'd like to think we have a huge edge in signing him due to the Houston connection and all. Plus, if we get him, this clears up the draft for us to select a couple more TEs...

    I believe he was in the Browns TC and then bounced around a few teams.

    I like him, but I think he's strictly a edge rushing DE or OLB, which is fine in this scheme.
    He's not quite strong enough to play DE in the NFL.
    And I also think he lacks the fluidity to drop back into coverage.
    (But heck, he can't do worse than most of our LBs, lol).

    What about the other 31 teams? I guess they're just as stupid, huh. Dumb comment just to fit in a Gary/Rick jab.

    Take your Texans FO jabs to one of the many threads on this board. Can we try to keep this one football related by discussing the player's potential with the Texans? I know it might be tough for you to do, but try. Not many of us like things the FO have done, but we don't make it a priority to involve a FO comment in practically every post.

    That's funny.

    I suspect Smithiak is scouring the college ranks, as we speak, looking for the TE's who show the best acumen and ability at rushing the passer.

    Chill out dude. You want nothing but sterilized football talk for the rest of this offseason, which might last until October? Believe me, if we aren't laughing, we'll be crying - buckets of rain.

    What? Is it too much to ask to have one thread that doesn't turn into a ***** and whine fest?

    Chill out? Me? I'm about as chill as it gets around here. If y'all want to make every thread a whiner....then go for it.

    If Wade thinks Hunt would help then sign him.

    It appears that you dont appreciate my sense of humor. LOL

    I was just trying to point out that now the Texans are going to have to over pay. I didn't mean that as a jab at the Texans FO.

    If I wanted to take a jab at the FO. There are many other instances I would have used instead of a CFL star/UDFA.

    Sorry I made your blood pressure rise.
