    I’m not getting some of the backlash against the honey badger around here. (Other threads)

    He only makes us better.

    Get some CB help and he can do his job like a boss.

    Sign him already.

    His 1st couple of years in the league he was a game changer .since he's been a fine starter. A Robin to someone's Batman. That's fine, he helps us be better, I agree.

    But we paid him like Batman.

    I don't know if this backlash you speak of is anything I said. But that's been my knock on him. $5M/yr somewhere in that range bring him back. I doubt anyone else will pay him more.

    He was getting knocked in the game thread. I agree, get the CBs where they need to be and he will look alot better. TK is right he probably is worth 5-6m and be done with it. The guy is a vet that has passion so I’d like to see us keep him IAAP.

    I don't get it either. People have been beotching about the safeties for the entire existence of the Texans. Finally get a really good one and they want to ditch him.

    No we did not. We paid $7 mil. Top safeties get $12 mil.

    If you want to beotch about someone overpaid look to Colvin's $8.5 mil bench riding ass. We're pretty much stuck with him for one more year though.

    Was Colvin a Gaine signing?

    I’m hoping Colvin’s lack of being on the field for the final few games had more to do with the ankle injury vs ineptitude. It would be awesome if he turned out to be a productive DB next season.

    Both Kareem and Honey Badger are free agents. If we draft a couple corners early in the draft, then I expect Kareem will be brought back to safety. Can't keep both Honey Badger and kareem in my opinion. I do think that Kareem will want more money than HB as he should since he can play both positions. Decisions, decisions..

    .....not to mention, the emergence of Reid. Kid has star S written all over him.

    Reid doesn't factor into financial issues until 2022.

    yeah, but how much $ do you spend at each position, you have Hal and Reid on the cheap, so do you pay Kareem and HB? If Colvin is seen as a bust versus never truly healthy, I think you have to keep both and use one on slot, as well as upgrade CB. If Colvin is still in plans, you may only pay one if you cannot get both to sign reasonable dollars

    Oh yeah no doubt. My response is assuming that Reid will be one of the safetys for the next three years minimum

    Oh.

    Yeah, bring him back for $7M/yr then. I don't have a problem with that. Closer to $5M/yr than $10M/yr, definitely not over.

    Don’t want to ditch him just don’t want to pay him like a top safety. He’s just not a “top safety”. Would rather spend the money on a CB and ride with Hal and Ried or sign a more traditional FS with range and better cover skills.

    Why can't we keep both? Not saying we should but we can. Cut Johnson, Bademosi and Griffin there's $15 million to split without touching our cap space. Imo we can get starting corner in draft so I'm hesitant on extending KJack.
