Day two saw no new movement from the Texans in Free Agency.
Ben Tate is allegedly being targeted by the Cleveland Browns via trade. I do NOT want to lose Tate, who is about as high quality depth as you can possibly get… but right now quality depth might be a luxury for the Texans, who are going to have some pretty important positions to address once the free agent dust settles.
Mario Williams remains in Buffalo. I firmly believe he is stringing the Bills along until he can get a meeting in Tennessee. I’ve said from the start he would land with the Titans, and I really think it would have already happened by now if not for the fact that the Titans are trying to get their meth-riddled teeth into Peyton Manning. I think the Titans are going to end up with either Peyton or Mario. I have to repeat – Mario is not going to, and was never going to stay in Houston. He would just have to leave too much money on the table. I would be OVERJOYED if I’m wrong.
Chris Myers is set to take a meeting with the Titans on Thursday. We’ll see if he ever makes it, or if Green Bay jumps back in the hunt. The Texans allegedly have a deal waiting for him if he wants it, but obviously it’s lower than he thinks he can get elsewhere.
Mike Brisiel is said to have a meeting set up with the Raiders. He would join former Texan coaches Frank Pollack (Texans assistant offensive line coach, now Raiders offensive line coach) and Greg Knapp (former Texans quarterback coach, now Raiders offensive coordinator).
Lawrence Vickers signed a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
Joel Dreessen is said to have a meeting set up with the New Orleans Saints, who can’t even place a proper value on their quarterback, but can set a proper value on purposely injuring an opposing player.
Eric Winston took his meeting with Miami, and has several other meetings set up. One of the meetings is with Baltimore, which is where I hope he ends up.
Sigh. This has been a ROUGH free agency period.
