    Dude certainly seems like a POS, so not thrilled about that.

    However getting good players in contract years is much smarter than overpaying when it comes to RB's.

    Because Henry is washed. He’s over 30 and showing signs of decline. Also not a zone runner.

    Mixon is far from my 1st choice, the Texans could’ve gotten someone a lot better, but he is the best option left

    One year Mixon deal sets them up to go RB in the 3 or 4th Round? Say what you want about no blue chippers this year, but the best college RBs may be picked in this range in this draft. Brooks? Benson? Ray Davis? Guerendo? Wright, Lloyd, Corum?

    I agree. Until I hear what we are giving up I won't feel good about this trade.

    LOL Well done @Two Sandwiches

    You thought Jim Crane was averse to long-term deals. Nick Caserio says hold my beer.

    Hopefully they didn’t fleece the Texans for a 4th (or god forbid 3rd) for a guy who was going to be cut.

    Texans don’t have a 5th or 6th.

    1-23
    2-59
    3-86
    4-122 | 4-126
    7-224 | 7-238 | 7-247
