    Lock/move if needed.

    Texans re-signed P Matt Turk to a one-year contract.

    Turk turns 40 before the season, but punters have long shelf lives and he posted a strong 39.4 net average last year. He also didn't have a single try blocked or returned for a score, dropping 24 punts inside the opposing 20.

    Matt Turk has resigned a 1 year deal with the Texans Congratulations Matt

    Good stuff, I like Turk and what he's doing for us. One less position to worry about!

    We could have gotten a young Punter at the end of the draft and paid him 1/4 of what Turk will be making. Not a good signing.

    After that run he busted off at Green Bay, I would have to agree.

    Despite the above stats cited, all the rankings I remember coming across have Turk in the lower third rung of NFL punters. I also remember that we as a group were not all that impressed with his last ear's performance. Hopefully, he regains the level he has been known for. Meanwhile, not inviting healthy competition in TC would be quite short-sighted on the part of the Texans.

    ST coach Joe Marciano wants high, controlled kicks, in the middle of the field that don't lead to returns. He doesn't want a punter that outkicks the coverage.

    He had a better 2009 than 2008.

    I wonder if this was also a signing to get Kris Brown back to par. This way they can have a clear understanding that it's not the holder if Kris is screwing up in preseason.

    It was my impression that Marciano also wanted high inside the 20 marks which has been a Turk strength, until last year.
