    HA! Exactly 1 minute after I posted I was worried about their leverage in trade talks with the Fitz signing.

    It's been real. Best of luck to him.

    Apparently this provides zero extra cap relief for the Texans relative to what cap space they would have received in releasing him.

    But at least they get a pick back for their troubles.

    I have a couple of questions from the Oakland perspective though:

    1) Does Schaub's salary count towards their "salary floor" this year?

    2) If not, are they planning on restructuring his contract for 2015 and beyond?

    I predict this will be an EPIC thread that will eventually be closed because it's going to break down into several fight-to-the-death arguments that have nothing to do with Matt Schaub.

    Mods, please quote this post when you eventually close this thread in a few weeks.
