    90 catches for 979 yards and 9 TDs from the top two TEs. Not bad.

    We are fine at TE, we have other issues, TE is definitely not one of them, and you know Gary is going to draft yet another TE in the 6th with all the extra picks lol, he can't help it.

    I've been wondering about this, too.

    So I dig out the CBA and read some of it.

    These players can attend OTA (maximum 4 days a week, 4 hours per day).
    They got paid per day ($175 for 2013); they are covered just as any other player regarding worker comp, and stuff like that in case of injury.

    In TC, they earn per diem just like a rookie.

    Basically, they are guaranteed an invitation to TC.
    (Having familiarity with the system, their chance of making the roster is better than signing with another team.)

    The club, in return, retain the right to the players.

    I disagree that the Texans "are fine at TE." Supernaw, Byrne, and Brock have proved nothing in the NFL. Graham has only 1 season under his belt and OD is starting to get up there in age (30), and both of them have missed time with injuries. Kubes even said it was a risk last season going with only 2 TE plus Casey, and it showed against NE when Graham was out with an injury. My hope is they go after Williams from Alabama or Reed from N. Mexico in the later rounds (5th-7th). Both are big and known for their blocking and "soft hands." Reed is the younger brother of Brooks Reed. Neither got much opportunity to do much receiving but could be very good.

    I am very concerned about TE depth considering Graham had two concussions last year

    I just want Supernaw to succeed based off his name alone.

    Over here.
    The question is whether we can find TEs in the draft to play safety, fullback, #2 WR, and MLB. That's the way we roll... :kitten:
