    I would of never thought that OD would be the guy that skips OTAs and threaten to not show up for training camp. Supposedly he wants to be the highest paid tight end in the league, which you can agrue the fact that he could be the best tight end in the league right now, but the fact that he is demanding this kinda money is really shocking to me. I am really looking at him in a different light.

    We have never had to deal with contract issues and holdouts before because we never had star players like we do now. The whole deal with Dunta and OD is such a set back to a season with so much promise. From what i understand they have both rejected very good offers. They say the right things in front of the cameras that they want to stay in Houston, well sign on the ******* line then and get out there with your team that needs you.

    • Ryans showed a lot of class by ending his little hold out and getting back out there with his team. He is the only one IMO that is being done wrong by the FO.

      • I heard (someone can correct me on this if I'm wrong.) that Dunta has until the 15 of this month to sign his franchise tender. I dunno what'll happen after that, but at least we can expect some news from his camp around that date.

        You know it's been frustrating to me the bickering that's going on and how some people can try to justify OD and Drobs actions. I mean, what they're doing I can understand, how they're going about it I can't. For Drob to go to the press and OD to go to facebook, it just makes them look like kids. They're pros they should act like it. OD is the one I don't get, it's been documented that the Texans are taking a firmer stand because of his agents. However he doesn't fire them or anything.

        Eric Winston blogged about the situation commenting that he couldn't picture OD being unreasonable, I wonder what he thinks when OD signed his tender before the Texans could lower the number and then didn't show up for camp and called the Texans unfair for fining him?

        Hopefully these next few weeks we start getting news about signings getting done or at least a status report.

          If he doesnt sign by the 15th then the Texans and Dunta can not work out a long term deal till after the season is over. To bad we couldnt get anything for him. I would take back the offer and dump him, he is not going to resign after the season and he will be a cancer in the locker room.

          • What's the word on Chris Brown and his future?

              • So looks like our only rookies left to sign now are Cushing and Barwin. Casey and Caldwell both signed 4 yr. deals. Idk the details yet.

                • Reeves breaks his leg... Well ****... Im not a big fan of Reeves but this does hurt because we are not deep at corner. I have not heard a timeline on his return yet, but its gotta take a while. Atleast we dont have to worry about Faggins getting playing time(good luck with that titans).

                  Bring on the old washed up guys for tryouts......

                  • They say it's 6-8 weeks. Depends on how fast he heals. I think it was a fracture. Chris Myers was also hurt, he's out indefinetely after he was pushed from behind.

                    I heard that Quinn is back after the bruised leg muscle. Also that Bennet has been doing well. It's only the beginning of training camp, but man I hope we don't get the injury bug this yr. (Knocks on wood and crosses the fingers.)

                    • Grossman out 4-5 weeks

                      • The Texans looked pretty good in the first preseason game. On offense Schaub, Chris Brown, and Moats stood out the most to me. I would like to see Slaton get more carries in the next game, to me it looked like the O line started off pretty slow. Slaton only made it out of the back field a few times, and on the sack on Schaub no one even saw the defender.

                        The Defense looked pretty good as well. I would like to see Okam start the game, he looked great, he was in the backfield on almost every play, we need someone to get Travis Johnson out of the lineup. Barwin looked very good to, he will have a nice number of sacks this year if he comes off the edge with that speed all year long.

                        I know it was only the first preseason game but you have to be excited by the way Schaub looked, 7 for 7 and i think he threw to 6 different recievers(i believe that is right). I am crossing my fingers that he stays healthy this season.

                        • T. Johnson got traded to the Chargers for a 6th rd. pick, 5th if he performs well. Thoughts?

                            Finally... I am so sick of waiting for him to come around. And i wouldnt expect that pick to be a 5th. This move should of happened much early so we could of been looking for some kinda replacement to start. Okam, Robinson, and Cody are all good back ups.

                            I wonder how much it would hurt the run D to start Smith in the inside and start Barwin on the outside.

                              The skill players on offense showed some promise in the game, but our O-line got absolutely destroyed by Minnesota. That is what may end up holding us back. hopefully they can get it together and jell before the season starts, Duane Brown didn't look to bad out there, hopefully he will pan out.

                              On D, I absolutely love what Barwin brings to the table. He is a great pass rusher already and has a ton of upside. Antonio Smith hasn't shown very much to get me excited, and that's an interesting idea to move him to DT and keep Barwin outside. But the weak point of the defense is still our secondary. I don't know why we haven't invested more top draft choices in our secondary as of late.
