    Texans | Team may visit with Reyes
    Sun, 9 Apr 2006 09:00:50 -0700

    Darin Gantt, of the Rock Hill Herald, reports the Houston Texans may have a visit with free agent OG Tutan Reyes (Panthers).

    Anyone know anything about this guy?

    5th round draft pick in 2000 by the Saints. Didn't play his 1st four years. Started 12 games in 2004 for the Panthers and all of last year. 2004 gave up 2.5 sacks and had 4 penalties--1 false start 3 holds. 2005 gave up 1 sack and had 2 penalties, both holding.

    Houston, again.
    Nope. Is he their starting Gaurd? If so, that's a good thing. IMO, the Pats realy screwed us with the sweethart deal that they and the agent for the gaurd for them did. I think we were really counting on having him and took a real run at him and the agent and Pats did a deal for a LOT less than what we were offering. Sure, the Pats are a better team and might be in the hunt and all, but there was a seriouse amount of cash difference. So, given all that, it doesn't surprise me at all that the club would still be looking for an experienced starting level gaurd to shore up the O-line, because it isn't all that good yet on the right side.

    Could give our Oline a little competition.

    Could also mean no O-line at #33? Not sure if I'm for that.

    seems like more and more evidence is starting to build up for moving Weigert to RT. Looks like Wade might just be on his way out.

    It seems to me like adding depth and competition at guard position. Are we just going cut Wade or is there any trading value for him? Kindly let me know ya’ll thoughts on this.idonno:

    The cut Wade question. We need some input from one of our contract/players association/cap experts.

    As I understand it, if they cut Wade now since he is technically still injured, not only would he get the rest of his bonus, but the Texans would also have to do a settlement with him.

    It they wait until he is ready to play and then cut him there is no settlement. I'm not sure what ready to play means though. Does he just have to successfully complete some drills in practice?

    Any comments?

    Not actually bitchin.. but are there no good "pass" blocking o linemen? We got AJ, Putzier, DD, Bush, Walters, Mathis and Moulds & we keep looking at run blockers? I know DD and Bush and maybe Morency will be good running backs as well as receivers, but sheesh!

    If we cut save some cash and get rid of some of the previous regimes mistakes, I'm all for it.

    honestly at this point i'd go forward with him and wouldn't try and cut him until training camp if he can't compete for a spot. we are goping to lose money so its not like we will have more money to sign a free agent.

    If we sign him, then it appears Wiegert will almost definitely play RT. It also means that just about anything can happen with our picks in the draft. I still think we should bolster the O-line, but that doesn't appear to be their plan.

    I'd bet they already have Weigert slotted at RT. Also, a signing like this could move McKinney to the bench as a backup depending on how camp goes.

    It is interesting they aren't looking at many free agent tackles.

    No way Steve Mckinney is the best gaurd on this team.

    The line is LT-Pitts LG-McKinney C-Flanigan RG-Open as of now RT-Weigert
