Texans Do Something That Makes Sense
Texans re-sign Bradley Roby
Head coach Bill O'Brien has made numerous missteps. The only one who's outdone him is general manager Bill O'Brien. However, the latter has made a move to distance himself some from the former. In what was thought to be a forgone conclusion of him leaving, Bradley Roby has resigned with the Texans. GM O'Brien gave Roby a three year deal worth $36 million dollars.
With cap space to spend and an obvious need at corner, this move made so much sense. Roby was clearly the Texans best corner last year. When you're without good draft picks in the next couple drafts, but you have cap space, moves like this make sense.
Baseball batting average on signings
GM O'Brien is hitting around .250 when it comes to signings and resignings. Lots of bloop singles, hit by pitches, and fielders choices. This was a no-doubt upper deck homerun. He gets his fair share of screw ups, but managed to get this one right when so many thought he'd screw this up too. I'm pretty sure he heard the trash can bang and knew what was coming.
While we kill O'Brien for his ineptness, we (begrudgingly) must give him credit here. GM O'Brien still has more pressing needs. If he manages to resign Laremy Tunsil, he'd hit a three-run homerun. Deshaun Watson resigning would be the walkoff grand slam to win a playoff series. Time for him to wear a buzzer, bang trash cans, watch video monitor, or use an Apple Watch because he needs all the help he can get dealing with those two.
