Former Texan Owen Daniels was on ESPN 97.5 with John Granato and Raheel Ramzanali on March 6th and spoke about the strange meeting Texans owner Bob McNair held with the players after the election of President Barack Obama in 2008. Despite any claims to the contrary, Daniels said that the meeting did happen, and he found it very peculiar that McNair would hold a meeting with the team to inform them about his displeasure with the results of the election. McNair has denied that this meeting took place, but now at least two players have confirmed that it did indeed happen.

Yesterday, McNair was in the news again for stating that he regrets apologizing for his controversial comments about the 'inmates running the prison.' McNair's recent statement led John Granato and Lance Zierlein to revisit the interview with Owen Daniels and and question why the Texans owner continues to keep giving live to this story. It may be time for McNair to step away from the organization because this is clearly not a good look for the league or the Texans. Houston may struggle to bring in free agents because of the reputation McNair has created for himself.
