    Don't know if this has been posted anywhere else. It's on Megan Manfull's blog

    Would hate to lose him. He provides some depth in a position where we desperately need it.

    If we do not sign a FA CB, how important to the team is Hutchins? Even if we draft a solid CB, do we go with a rookie and a one year guy?

    I would hate to lose Hutchins. Looks like we are going to lose him though.

    We should remind him of what happened to CB Lewis Sanders when he left Houston . . .

    Hutchins is a quality guy to have on the team. Not an all star but for a position of desperate need already- it'd be bad to lose one of its 'more solid' players.

    Eh, he's decent depth but if he's offered a lucrative deal, good for him. :cool:

    I would think re-signing Hutchins is a one of their many priorities. Hopefully we can get him back.

    If he signs somewhere else they will just find the same caliber player to replace him. No big deal.

    This was a mistake. Should've NEVER let him go.

    From Chron.com:

    "The Texans lost Von Hutchins to the Atlanta Falcons today. He received a four year deal for $9 million, with $2.35 million up front in bonus money."

    That's far from lucrative. He was worth more than that to us. I can't imagine we wouldn't match that for the depth he provides, and his ability to play multiple secondary positions. Not a huge loss, but a significant one. I don't think there are any FA CBs out there in our price range that are any better.

    Agree, Von stepped up when Dunta went down and I thought he did fairly well. I don't understand this one--yet.

    This IS a head-scratcher.

    Werd...

    Oh well, I expect our HC to know what's good for him, and the team :)

    All I can figure is they made him and offer - for backup money - and Atlanta beat it.

    McClain's take on the Hutchins' departure (Anderson as well...seems to be 2 very similar situations).

    Houston, again.
    Hutch's deal doesn't look to far out of wack (not sure what Anderson got). Kind of sounds like we might have low balled them and then got beat on price. On the surface, it seems kind of wierd, but you never know what is going on in the background with these things.
