Here’s what could be standing between an Astros, Yuli Gurriel reunion

The Astros announced the official re-signing of Michael Brantley this week, he'll be coming back to the team on a 1-year deal with a base salary of $12 million with incentives.

Former Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel is still on the free agent market and recently switched agents. Is Yuli looking for a bigger deal and that's why he switched agents, or is he looking to return to Houston and his former agent wasn't getting the job done?

Be sure to check out the video as we discuss the contract Aledmys Diaz received from the A's (2-years, 14.5 million) and debate whether we want to see the Astros offer a similar deal for Yuli to return.

DeMeco Ryans looks like the Texans' choice as the next head coach. Composite image by Brandon Strange.

The Houston Texans have been busy interviewing coaches over the last few weeks, and just this week, the team held second interviews with Giants OC Mike Kafka and Broncos DC Ejiro Evero. The Texans have also interviewed Los Angeles Rams tight ends coach and assistant head coach Thomas Brown, Sean Payton, Lions OC Ben Johnson, Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon, and Eagles OC Shane Steichen. Johnson has taken himself out of the mix and is returning to Detroit.

But according to a new report from Ian Rapoport, the Texans may already have their minds made up about their next head coach.

Former Texans linebacker and current 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans appears to be the top candidate for the Texans, and he is reportedly interested in the position, with a second interview likely to take place next week.

Ryans has been the defensive coordinator for the 49ers over the last two seasons. San Francisco was the best defense in the league in 2022.

Ryans is a popular pick for the position in Houston, and fans will be super excited if he eventually gets the job. Let's hope Rapoport's sources are correct, and the Texans have their new head coach lined up.
