    DOESN'T MATTER BRIAN. NOT INTERESTED BRIAN.
    ALREADY GOT ONE HOLDOUT BRIAN. WHY DO YOU THINK WE WANT TWO BRIAN?

    "We're comfortable with Lamar and the guys we've got John."
    "Not interested in sending out picks and setting the market for a RB Brian."
    "We love Matt Kalil at LT. Good guy, working hard, excited to see what Mike [Devlin] can do with him Mark."
    "Like Tilman worried about the LT in 3/4 years, we're worried about guys we gotta pay in 3/4 years. Gonna sit on our cap & build through the draft Aaron."

    Yeah....lets pay a running back that has a large injury history $17 million dollars (which is what he wants). He wants Gurley money. The Rams may be regretting that because of Gurley's recent injuries.

    I would love this move so much for the Texans. They would become contenders with a move like this. Lets hope for the best.

    Gordon would be great but how much does he want? He didn't want 10M/year

    Hope you're getting paid to be the Texans'/BoB's mouthpiece.

    Gordon wants $15 -17 million a year. Basically the same thing Bell wanted (he got less than $13 million a year). Bell lost about $40-$50 million by sitting out a season AND not taking the Steelers' offer.

    The Texans where high on Gordon in the draft.

    Other teams know exactly who to call.

    Not worth it. Prior to last year he was a sub 4ypc back. At this point they are better off rolling as much cap space over as possible to pay Fuller, Reader, Cunningham and Watson.

    This too deserves its own thread.

    Save the bank for Ramsey and retain Clowney long-term. Texans will grab a back in next year's draft in rounds 1-2.

    Gordon is overrated. Only one 1k+ rushing year and a career avg of only 4.0 YPC. If I felt that Gordon was the missing piece to winning the super bowl I might be down. Texans need to focus on trading for players with a longer shelf life than RB.

    Miller was fine before he got hurt late in the season. 4.6 ypc is up there with Zeke.

    Texans can address running back in next year's draft.

    Miller's 97 yard TD and 13.5 ypc vs the Titans is skewing that quite a bit. Great game and run by Miller but take that out and he's that 3.7 ypc back we've seen the past few seasons. Not bad, not great. But we need a viable backup this season.

    That being said, no thanks on trading for Gordon.

    Yeah far better off letting Cal keep that money, don’t want to spend it on an upgrade. I guess we always have Foreman to look forward to in the future.
