They're all pretty inconsequential assuming we go back to the 4 year model. It is interesting that they tendered Leinart, though. I was under the impression that they were prepared to let him walk.
Leinart a 1st round tender??? Wait, he would be due a 1st since that's his draft position.
I guess Wade doesn't care for Pollard.
I thought Bulman might have been a good fit as a 3-4 DE.
May be for naught, unless the league is unable to lockout the players and have to play 2011 under the 2010 CBA rules.
Help me out here ? So if the new CBA goes with the 4-yr UFA deal, all of these tenders are null & void and the Texans are in no better position than the 31 other teams to sign these players they've just tendered today ?
Really the point on tendering is to cover yourself for those players between 4 year and 6 years you give flip about since the new rules could be land anywhere in that range. Going back to 4 years is the most likely outcome, but not a guarantee.
Think he had a year of Roy Willliams (okla) as really the physical can't cover anybody safety. Not that once he left, Dallas figured out that position, but I don't think Wade likes the in-the-box primarily guy.
Sorry AT, but you've got it all wrong. Wade told Pollard that he would be playing NT in his new system this year. Wade didn't appreciate it when Pollard told him to FO.
It's consequential to me. It means the organization is paying attention and not being neglectful. It also says quite a bit about its opinion of those players and what they are likely to target during the draft/free agency... For instance, Quin at safety is looking even more likely.
Are you sure it wasn't TE?
Could they have thrown a tender on ward? Seems like some team is going to want him we could have maybe a 3rd for him.
I would like to keep Butler need OL depth.
Ward is beyond the 6 year limit. He is an Unrestricted FA no matter what.
oh ok thanks
When John McClain read the title of this thread, he thought Bob McNair had upgraded the concession stand menu.
Thread title had me thinking that the organization was changing the name of their chicken strips.
I WAS FIRST, DAMNIT!
By a few seconds....LOL.
I gave you rep.
You know what this means? It means God blessed you with the same type of thinking as me. We're practically the same person. Aren't you excited?!?!?
So... two of you... right...
Since Wade and the Texans seem to be pushing Bernard Pollard out the door and since there are rumors of moving Glover Quin to FS, does this now mean that SS is a 2nd round pick instead of FS like alot of our mocks have. Deandre McDaniels in the 2nd round maybe?
