Laremy Tunsil has played 44 games, started all 44. Seems like a leader, guy that shows up to work, doesn’t follow all the bs mainstream drama, and ain’t more worried about being a celebrity than being the best at what he does. I’m glad to have him on the team!
 
Texans should've extended his contract prior to making the trade. Seems dumb to give up what they did and not instantly extend him. His leverage to be the highest paid LT in the history of the league has got to be among the highest ever in the history of the NFL.

I wonder how Laremy Tunsil feels about being a Texan? I know his former teammates made a bunch of noise threatening to “revolt” if Laremy was traded. But, why would Laremy want to stay in Miami instead of playing with Watson and DeAndre Hopkins?

I would think he's happy .

The Texans for the next two years are pretty loaded .

They should have, I agree. But, they didn’t. Also, who cares if he becomes the highest paid LT when the time comes? I sure as hell don’t, as it isn’t my money. The Texans must pay what it costs to have a good LT protecting our franchise QB, or continue to let him get the piss beat out of him while praying he doesn’t end up like Andrew Luck. I’m sure they’ll take care of Tunsil when the time comes, because the urgency of having a LT is much greater than having Clowney under a massive contract while still having Watt and Mercilus. But that’s an entirely different discussion for a different thread.

There's a stat in sports called WAR . Wins above replacement . The WAR between Clowney and Tunsil is no contest . There's nobody who can replace Tunsil . Mercilus and Scarlett can be 80% of Clowney .

Haven't heard anything about it. How are you at run blocking, Laremy?

With only a week of practice with his new team? I saw enough of his stuff tonight to know this guy is SO much better than what we've been used to lately.
Ok definitely better, but worth two first round picks? We gave up the same as tye Bears gave up for Khalil Mack..we will see if he pans out.

It it turns out he ends up being as good as and as dependable as Duane Brown was, then it was worth it. If not, no, that was very expensive for my taste. But, it's over and done with now and he's a damn site better than what we had.

Just to be clear. Did you actually expect a guy that has only been in Houston for about 5 days to come in and be in mid season form, and already know the playbook? Are you serious?

He wasn't great or even good really ….. but he was better than anything else they have trotted out there Since Brown left.

Never said that.. but I don’t see a lockdown LT.. I see a decent LT that will be serviceable. Texans gave up too much for him in my opinion

As we would have for any top LT in any draft. We gave up a first for a proven LT instead of gambling by letting O’Brien select one. We also got a speedy wideout with good hands in Still, which would have been worth another 1st to get.
You really think Stills is worth a 1st round pick? What are you smoking? Stills is worth a third at best

Stills is worth the 2nd rder by himself and they got another 4-6th.
