Texans Trade Demeco Ryans


Recommended Posts

Great trade for the Eagles, bittersweet trade for the Texans because he was a great player but he was worth lot of cap. They should get a 3rd or 2nd round pick in exchange.

All the Texans get is a 4th round pick out of him. Just wow.. I'd fire the Texans GM.

That surprised me as well. Particularly as bad as Phil needs good LB"s, seems like they could have squeezed them for at least a #2...

no mario, no ryans.... maybe they will be focusing more on their O since they don't have to play Manning 2x a year?

We get their 4th and we swap 3rds, moving 13 spots up in that round.

I'd rather see us taking that extra 2nd round pick they have...along with a 5th.

And yes, this frees up more cap space for us.

It is bittersweet, he was a great leader and taught Cushing a lot. He's a better fit in the 4-3 system, and they obviously have faith in Sharpton, who played well when Demeco was out.

I will now field any questions. LOL.

Was he just not a good fit for the 3-4? I know he had kind of a large cap #, but seems like you would make room for a guy like that....

The consensus is he wasn't fitting well, and he was slowed due to his injury. I guess the FO figured he was being payed too much for not even being on the field for 3 consecutive plays.

Texans made a stupid move. He's the leader of that defense, and everyone loves him. He's a tackling machine, who's fast and a great all around LB. Not smart to get rid of him. Now the Eagles have their LB and their leader. I dont know if his contract was big, but either way, the Texans lost a great player.

Right, never played more than 3 downs in a row, 64 tackles last year, slowed due to Achilles...frees up cap space to re-sign guys like Cushing next year. But you're right though. We're just stupid.

Why don't you actually read my previous posts before commenting?

    • His list last year was reasonably close on where players were drafted.   A good place to start knowing these names.  Thanks!   Ballard has targeted many players that perform well in the senior bowl; I expect it to be even more important this year considering there will be no combine.  
    • I have to imagine that the Colts’ offer and TY’s asking price simply don’t meet.  It happens all the time with vets.
    • I would get bent too. They made it to the NFC championship game, hes still playing at an MVP level, and they draft a replacement for him that might not start for a few years? Then they make it to the NFC championship again, and instead of having a 1st round rookie playmaker out there contributing, they have their 1st round investment sitting on the bench. When you're that close to winning a superbowl you gotta add more weapons in the draft, not build for the future.   Also Stafford 5yrs younger is nowhere close to the level Rodgers is now. How many MVPs has Stafford won? How many playoff games has he won? How many pro bowls & all pros? Give Megatron to Rodgers and watch what happens. Rodgers gives us a 2-3 year window to win a superbowl. Stafford gives us a 4 - 6 year window to make the playoffs and get bounced in the 1st/2nd round. He will never outperform Mahomes or Allen.. Rodgers can.
    • I didn't listen to the link, but I don't believe Indy pushed him out. I just think Rivers was done and was kind enough to tell the Colts as early as he did (and not pull a Luck)    1) He's already been talking about wanting to coach his kid in high school football, (high school only last 4 years) 2) Franchise LT just quit  3) Your arm is nowhere near what it used to be    Plus, I've been to San Diego a few times, and boy is it beautiful. Indigrayapolis pales in comparison.  
    • Maybe it's TY posturing, but I think people are reading into it too much.    I believe his numbers were down because Rivers didn't have the arm for the deep game (took too long for passes to get there) and it took awhile for him and Rivers to get on the same page. If they get a QB with an arm (Stafford, or even Eason) those deep shots will be there again.    TY can clearly still get open. He might've lost a step on his blazing speed, but he is still quite fast. They'd be dumb not to bring him back. Especially with how weak the Colts WR position is.
