    We're very familiar with him John. Seen him in the division. Good player. Works hard, getting better every day.

    It's all a part of the master plan to lure Jalen Ramsey to the Texans.

    I mean he’s not a bad player. He’s not a household name but he’s solid. If it’s not an expensive deal then it’ll be even better.

    14 out of 89 not bad at all. But how many good safeties are there? And how many are playing with two good CBs?

    Gaine piling up extra picks. Sticking to his guns to build through the draft. Still holding out hope for Darby, but only bargain picks other than that.

    For the record he’s MUCH MUCH better than Landon Collins

    If they didn't spend too much money then this is a good pick up. Focus should be cornerback, o line and running back.

    Tashaun. Landon Collins might be one of, if not the most overrated player in the NFL. I work with a few giants fans and they were ecstatic to get rid of him.

    Texans signed Tashaun Gipson, formerly of the Jaguars.
    Gipson was reported as a target for the Texans on Tuesday morning, and they quickly got a deal done. Despite being cut by the Jaguars last week, Gipson remains a quality deep safety who will help fill the void left by Tyrann Mathieu and Kareem Jackson. This is a good signing for Houston.

    LOL
    Y'all can miss me with how great of a signing this is. This was a save-face. Gipson is a free safety, so is Justin Reid, so is Andre Hal. They'll probably end up playing an extra LB and put one of the FS in the slot. It will work but it is not ideal and it was not their initial plan. Good save-face but the Texans did not get better at the safety positions.

    Not giving up a pick is good. Does anyone know if we will get compensatory picks for losing Tyran and/or Kareem? I would have to assume we will get something for Kareem since we drafted him but not sure how it would work with Honey Badger? I did find this website below that shows we would get (2) 3rd picks in 2020 which sounds about right. IMO, this is similar to trading Kareem Jackson & HB for Gipson + (2) end of 3rd round picks. Anyone else see it that way? This kind of move gives you flexibility to maybe trade some different 2020 picks to move up or hang on to these.
