    They were able to get a pick out of washed up Schaub so maybe they can get a 7th for Cushing. Can't see anyone wanting to trade for that contract though.

    trading him for nothing but cap relief would be a good deal at this point

    That contract ruins any chance of having a trade partner.

    Unless we take on a similar amount of money for a crap player, I don't see much happening.

    "The Texans are open to trading Brian Cushing" reminds me of the 5'9" white HS kids who declare themselves eligible for the NBA draft.

    Isn't he on a pretty cut friendly contract?

    Let him and Foster go this offseason.

    Unless the other team he's going to has steroids, he's not going to contribute whatsoever.

    That's an enticing group of players right there. The league's GMs must be salivating. I hope Rick Smith has his iPhone charged, his 3G and 4G internet ready...

    And that's the difference between top gm's like lunhow and money and bottom feeders like smith.... Buy low sell high is an unfamiliar concept to rick.
