Martin is coming off an Injury so no Guarantees with him . If TB salary was a bit to much RS is good at restructuring so would have liked to kept him . Our inactivity and release of 4 starters is a bit Alarming !! Is RS trying to make it as hard as possible on OB maybe ?? We have learned how he wanted Lovie Smith to come in as our HC and really mess things up ? Thats how I see it anyway trying to hire a Black HC to even the disparity out some maybe ?? RS whole job with the Texans is a perplexing mystery IMO .. Brian Gaine should have been the GM since OB's second season imho ....
    Well I agree and disagree with you on Bergstrom. Yes, we need OL help and then some. From that point of view I agree. However, while Smith makes the personal choices, he was here last year and the coaching staff never even used him. So, I guess he was pretty much awful seeing the coaches didn't use him at all. From that point of view I disagree only seeing the staff didn't think he was worth using.

    As for a different GM, no question that OB should have had either 1- a different GM 2- McNair should have made Smith work with OB. Because so far it seems Smith (didn't want OB to start) is far from asking OB about what is needed or what he wants. It almost seems that Smith picks players he likes based on what he thinks is an area of need. That also explains how Brock got signed and OB had never met or spoken to him till after he was signed. Smith must have talked up McNair about him and then got the "OK" to sign him and dropped him in OBs lap. You can find multiple reports on that from trusted NFL sources. 1-2 stories don't make it fact, but around 100+ means you probably have a true story just altered some per writer/source/reporter.


    Who is Brian Gaine:

    That should help fill in who Brian Gaine is.

      Yeah as the SF is trying to rebuild. In the wake of the Chip Kelly Travis Baalke fiasco.

        Former Bills safety Aaron Williams to visit the Texans on Thursday, according to sources. Former Longhorn standout healthy now, per source.

            2015 and 2016 seasons ended with "neck" injuries. I suspect we're talking about the spine and/or concussions.

            I'm gonna ask Doc, but would be surprised if he has a positive outlook him.

              I remember the crackback block Jarvis Landry had on him last year caused the second one. At this point, he's a solid guy to take a chance on at this point. Would be cheap and would be a huge upgrade not only to what we had last year, but especially to what we have this year.

                  Overview

                  Jarrett is a very productive collegiate safety, but he may lack the size and speed to make an impact at the next level. He is a four-year starter that seeks out contact in run support and breaks down ball carriers in the open field. In the passing game, he uses very good recognition skills to effectively cover the deep-third of the field despite less than ideal speed. It remains unclear if his toughness and instinctual advantages can make up for his size and speed deficiencies in the NFL, but he has a great attitude and work ethic and should be a middle round pick.
