    Not a bad deal, it was fairly cheap and it means that there's one less thing the Texans need to look for in the draft.

    Exactly. Cheap deal, capitalized on the draft depth. One less position to draft.

    Splash!

    Would have preferred Jared Cook or OJ Howard (pipe dream).

    You know the fans are getting antsy at the lack of moves when we creating threads for the backup TE

    3 mil for a guy who has no speed, almost never able to get any separation, with poor hands, not a good blocker for your QB, nor a decent run blocker.

    Sounds exactly what the typical Texans TE in the franchise history always had.

    Great deal.

    Griffin and Fiedorowicz actually were just about the only 2 receiving targets that got open consistently last season and Ryan Griffin caught the highest % of passes thrown to him among non RB players with at least 20 targets on the season (Fiedorowicz was 2nd on that list)......but why let facts get in the way of a fun narrative?

    Beautifully structured contract by Olsen. All guaranteed $$$ in Year 1, can cut after '17 with no dead money on the books.

    Nice.

    Talking about facts, you are using a facebook game score to be your standard for an university application?

    You forgot the "got open consistently and most frequent target" is related to a QB that we need to send away by using a second round pick which no teams in the history of the league done before?

    LOL

    Receivers getting open has nothing at all to do with the QB and I said nothing about being the most frequent target, Nuk was the most frequent target and baby hands was the 2nd most frequent target. Anyway, since you clearly have nothing else to stand on, I guess you could go with that lame ass nonsense of blaming you being wrong on a QB.

    That's $3mil of the $10mil space we opened by trading a second rounder
