Houston just signed a deal for DE Mario Williams! So much for Reggie Bush.



The Houston Texans have signed North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams to a six-year, $54 million deal, making him the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft Saturday.

Of the $54 million, Williams is guaranteed $26.5 million.

Texans general manager Charley Casserly had cautioned earlier in the week that anyone concluding the team had decided on Southern California tailback and Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush and was only using Williams as leverage was mistaken.

Well shoot they werent even on the clock yet!

I would think that they needed an Offensive Lineman more than a DE... Carr is gonna get kilt again this year if they dont address that swiss cheese line.

Javon Walker was in Denver Friday.

Reports are Green Bay will move him for picks today.

That franchise (GB) has been turned on its ear, starting last TC when Favre bagged on Walker to get into camp!!

The Saints should trade down and still get Ferguson.
I wouldnt. I would take Bush, or make someone pay through the nose to move up.
