    I thought we signed him officially on tuesday- and not a word about it so far on the main website.-WHAT GIVES????? We get a solid WR with experience and not even a blurb on the latest news. Sage Roseynobody's information and picture was on there the first day!!!! Not to say Sage is unwanted- I'll welcome him along with everyone else, but come on- a proven 10 year starter and no props on the website- thats Just wrong. :twocents:

    If your out there Moulds- WELCOME TO HOUSTON. WE ARE GOING TO ENJOY WATCHING YOU PLAY. AND SINCE I SIT IN SECTION 119 IN THE FRONT ROW- I'LL HAVE A BEER READY FOR YOU WHEN YOU GET YOUR FIRST TOUCHDOWN HERE!!!!!! :redtowel:

    The Texans are one of the slowest and most conservative teams in the league when it comes to this kind of thing. They won't ever be accused of jumping the gun.

    I well aware that the Texans are not one to "jump the gun", but, I'm under the belief that we signed Moulds on Tuesday afternoon- (Unless something has come up and it is not really official)- so a simple announcement (just like everyone else we signed this offseason) would be nice.

    Are you making excuses???

    no, I'm saying they are slow. This isn't a new thing, so try not to worry.

    & what about a press conference to end the "What number will he wear" debate...

    Personally- I think this is (slightly) insulting. Whathisname WR and whohisface QB get instant recognition and Moulds has nothing so far. This could be minor- but given the size of the other Moulds thread- I hope he knows that the fans are here for him.

    Houston, again.
    Could be waiting for the league to sign off on the trade. Pretty much a formality, but I don't think they can say anything until that happens.

    I think they are waiting till they find out what number he is going to wear.

    Thank you Eric Moulds(E-MO) for signing with the TEXANS. Good Luck

    As long as he runs out of the tunnel on opening day, I don't care if it takes until training camp .....

    Do they have to wait for a physical before the trade could be done with the Bills? If that were the case we wouldn't be able to report it yet.

    I agree about the Texans being slow. I am tired of reading the same articles from Chron.com, ESPN, Foxsports, SI, and yahoo sports. The Bills haven't announced anything either on there website so I don't know if the deal is really "offically" done.

    I think they're waiting on holding a press conference to announce it.

    In a respone to an E-mail I sent the Texans from the website they said:



    Thank you for your email and support of the Houston Texans. We never post anything on HoustonTexans.com until it is official. We don’t respond to unconfirmed reports or comment on rumors. We never announce a signing until the contract is actually signed. We are still awaiting league approval on the Moulds trade.

    Because of all of those steps, we are never wrong. Other news outlets that cover rumors and quote unnamed sources sometimes do not get their information correct. You can be guaranteed that all information on HoustonTexans.com is correct, while some news you may be reading might not be entirely.

    We hope this information helps and that you will continue to visit HoustonTexans.com for the latest news on our team and events.

    Have a great day and GO TEXANS!



    So I'm happy with this response. and I just want to say that was not meaning to belittle any of our other FA signing. I look forward to seeing ALL OF THEM in TEXANS uniforms this season.

    What is his 40 time? No one has even mentioned that I can find. I know he's big, strong, good route runner, good hands, 10 year vet with not much time on field first two years, etc. And I'm grateful he signed. BUT WHAT IS HIS 40??????!! That is usally one of first things mentioned.

    40 times are enormously overrated. What would you need them for anyway? He has ten years in the league and has proven he can get open and catch the ball.

    true vinny, but i think he wants to know just how much we can spread the field and the defense with our speed and talent...and with the possible addition of bush's 4.33 we will be blazing fast with AJ, RB, JM

    He isn't a speed guy at this stage in his career. He will be used like Kubiak used Rod Smith the last few years - slants, crosses, come backs and outs that work the areas pretty much where Gaffney worked.
