    Just to add to this, we can't have open season on our secondary so the only alternative is constant pressure on the QB - and that means an unrelenting, quality pass rush.

    The #Ravens are the one team that has frequently been linked to Tyrann Mathieu. Baltimore does, in fact, have interest but the #Texans have made it a point of emphasis to retain him. Nothing done yet.

    I’m cool with the Texans paying Mathieu, but we need to go after a couple of good corners. We will continue to get torched if we keep using him as a corner/safety. Keep him at safety for god’s sake!!

    Do teams ever tell a player that if they choose to test the market their deal if off the table.

    Texans’ negotiating priority remains Tyrann Mathieu, whom they’ve offered a multi-year contract extension. RIch safety market, so plenty of fallback options if he signs elsewhere. Hearing Ravens aren’t involved on him. Lions have interest and Chiefs, among others.

    That’s too much for him. What did he do the last 2 seasons that merit this big a contract?

    Good year of versatile safety play in first season in RAC's system, and a big time lockerroom leader..

    You think those two things are mutually exclusive?

    This is just good business, do you buy the first car you like from the first dealer you go to? Most people even if they like the car and the deal offered they still test drive others. Or if you are hiring a contractor to do work on your house do you hire the first one in the phone book or do you get several to give you quotes? I've had jobs before that I liked and wanted to stay at but the money offered from someone else was just to good to pass up. At the end of the day you have to do whats best for you in the long run. Besides, nothing says the Texans can't meet or beat any deal another team offers.

    Reads like a player handling the business side of his life.

    So $9.5 M here or Florida, Tennessee and Washington is like about $10 M in any state due to state income tax. It will be interesting to see if another team will pay him $10 M. Of course, he took less to come here last year than he was offered from others. No doubt it is more about signing bonus and guaranteed money.

    I thought he was only ok. I know KJ is older but I think he’s better and I’d rather have him instead. Now if they could land Collins or earl Thomas that would be even better.

    I think KJ and Matthieu are petty on par with one another in total, just a little better or worse in some small varying days. But then the age thing comes into play. And I'll also learn toward how much Tyrann can improve having acclimated a full year now to what RAC is asking from him. Really wouldn't be too fussed as long as we can retain one of them.

    And Collins wasn't good at all last season.

    He’s not a top tier safety. I like him and he’s good but I’m not over paying for him with better options available. For 11 or 12 per year we could most likely have earl thomas.

    Wish we could've kept him, but not at that price. I felt like that $9.5M/YR was fair. Oh well... Dan Snyder really effed up the safety market with what he gave Collins!

    Good luck in KC, Badger!

    I want to go back to the days before free agency and salary caps.
