Texans taking Williams

Postby jatkin11 » Fri Apr 28, 2006 8:36 pm

Unless I'm halucenating, I just saw on the NFL network bottom line that the Texans agreed to terms and will take Mario Williams

I guess this means we can look forward to playing Reggie Bush twice a year

Idk if New Orleans will get Bush or not, because their need of an O-Lineman is far greater. They have Deuce Mc, who is good, yet his past injury problems. This adds a new spin on things, maybe bush drops to out of the top 5, that would drop a 1st round RB into the second round possibly?

I bet what we may see happen is them trade down perhaps to the 49ers for their 2 1sts and the Saints take Vernon Davis.... then the 9ers will have the whole Alex Smith/Bush reuniting

49ers have too many weaknesses right now to give up a first to move up. Granted they want Bush, the question is, how much are they willing to give. Maybe a 2nd and a 3rd, but i highly doubt they will give up their other 1st. But, who knows...I doubted the Texans wouldn't take Bush...

Here's to hoping that the Jets trade up for the #2 pick...

Yeah, I'm thinking either the Jets or 49ers make a move up to get Bush. The Saints getting Bush would be a smart move, since I don't think McAllister is going to be the force he once was unless he gets back into his ideal playing shape of 225 pounds.

With this move for the Texans, I believe it's a poor decision. I don't think a team should ever make such an important decision based on signability. Charley Casserly (Texans GM) was on NFL Network basically admitted that it came down to the contract the made the decision for the Texans.

Rumors have it the Aints will trade down to stock their roster. The team that will trade up is the Steelers as they have TEN picks in the draft today.

And hey guys,...Reggie,...meet the Falcons new defense!,...if it comes to fruition. :wink:
