    I don't know if this means he is coming to the Texans or not, but I just find it interesting that he just signed a lease, the place he got runs for just over $2000 a month. I know his family lives here, but he could always stay with them or stay at his place in Austin if he was just working out for the NFL, something tells me the Texans are going to take him, I don't think this is circumstancial, but I guess we will soon find out

    He was a 1970s on site live news reporter for a local San Diego news station, I believe later he went on to host a Fox reality show.

    Vince Young could lease a spot on the moon and the Texans might still draft him. Vince Young could buy up a block in Houston and the Texans might still pass on him.

    No way, no how, not by any longest of long shots, have the Texans privately told Vince they intend to draft him. They will not make that decision either way until well after the combine, when they have the most complete information available to them, and have entertained every last trade offer, signing scenario, etc.

    I don't think this was reflecting negatively on Young at all. I think he was questioning the competency of Young's mentors/managers. I actually think the guy made some valid points. There is no reason for Young to risk doing anything that could negatively reflect upon his skills.

    Vince is also from Houston and his family is here. I don't know what part of Houston he's from but he could very well be finding a place for his family to upgrade their living accommodations. If he was convinced he was staying here I would think he'd be looking at buying a house, not renting an apartment.

    The other night on his interview he said no matter where he ends up going,Houston is his home and is where he will live so he can help people in Houston with charities and stuff.

    No state income tax reasons??? Dumping his stuff off at his folks house is probably not enough to establish residency probably.

    Though I have to say I wouldn't mind his second residence being in the film room deep in Reliant for most of the year. :cool:

    Quarterback Watch! The mood is tense; I have been on some serious, serious reports but nothing quite like this. I uh...Yang...uh...Young is inside right now. I tried to get an interview with him, but they said no, you can't do that. He's a live quarterback, he will literally rip your face off.

    A lot of professional athletes who don't play for Houston teams have houses in Houston. They make a lot of money and Texas has no state income tax. Those two go together like peanut butter and jelly.

    I wouldn't read into this too much.

    Could be looking into having a house built thus renting an apt. makes sense. By no way, shape, form, or fashion am I implying that because of that he's coming here, I strongly believe if he wound up in Buffalo he'd still live here.

    Houston is that 4th largest city in the US, and happens to house many famous athletes. We have world class facilities and housing cost is extremely low compared to any other major city. Add that to the fact that he has family that lives here, and he loves his family means that he will probably live here at least part of the year. Young will be a top 10 pick this year, and because of that he will have enough money to have extremely larges houses in five or six cities if he so chooses. The mere fact that he has an apt has very little effect on the Texans. Obviously he can't be sure where he will end up for sure until the end of April, so why not get a place to live close to home?
