VYPE's Hot 100

No. 91-100

91. Jordan Revels, North Shore, DL, Uncommitted

Revels is a touch under-sized but an integral part of North Shore's nasty defense. The 6-foot defensive end is a playmaker and tremendously atletic for his size. Former North Shore assistant and now TSU coach Clarence McKinney hopes to get this sleeper on board.

92. Peyton Matocha, St. Thomas, QB, Uncommitted

Matocha just pulled an offer from Tulane. He was the team's best all-around player. He's got good size to be a dual-threat QB as well as a talented punter. He also filled in on defense when needed. Matocha was the TD Club's co-Offensive Player of the Year.

93. Ben Montgomery, Taylor, DB, Yale-commit

Montgomery has been patrolling the Mustangs secondary seemingly forever. The all-district selection is equally as talented in the classroom. He had DI offers but looked long-term with his commitment to Yale.

94. Jacorey Howard, Aldine, RB, Uncommitted

Howard is a great student and great talent. The 6-foot-1 big back could potentially play multiple positions. He rushed for over 1,400 yards and has been the Big Man on Campus since his freshman year at Aldine. TSU recently offered. This would be a steal.

95. Jaelin Benefield, Pearland, RB, Uncommitted

Benefield toted the rock for one of the area's top teams this season. He had over 1,300 yards and can catch the ball out of the backfield. A little under-rated as a recruit, mostly due to size and speed. He was District 23-6A's MVP and a three-time first-teamer. He can play.

Paying a kicker 17 million dollars? Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images

Head coach/general manager Bill O'Brien engineered questionable moves during the off-season that already have come back to bite the Texans in the butt. Fans have yet to see the Texans on the right track, at least on television for now. Here are the top three, or bottom three, contracts that have Houston raising eyebrows, shrugging shoulders, and shaking heads.

Randall Cobb: 3 years, $27 million

The 30-year-old wide receiver has been quiet so far this 0-2 season with seven catches for 82 yards. New offensive coordinator Tim Kelly is favoring "12 and 21" schemes which render Cobb the third option behind Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks. This could change now with Fuller nursing a hamstring injury sustained against the Ravens. To be fair, with no preseason games or extended practice, Cobb has not had time to build chemistry with quarterback Deshaun Watson. So let's mark him, "bad contract," but jury still deliberating.

David Johnson: 3 years, $39 million

Johnson has carried the ball 22 times for 111 yards. Normally, these would be acceptable, even commendable stats. However, Johnson carries the burden of being involved in the trade that sent DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona. BTW, Hopkins in tearing it up in Arizona with 22 receptions for 219 yards. Also, more evidence condemning Johnson's contract, the Texans could have made a run at Leonard Fournette (17 carries for 108 yards) or Adrian Peterson (21 carries for 134 yards), both chewing up more turf for less money.

Whitney Mercilus: 4 years, $54 million

Here's another 30-year-old who was being paid big and producing little. He was MIA against the Ravens with no tackles and no sacks, despite being on the field for 70 percent of the Ravens snaps. Mercilus was able to squeeze the Texans for huge money last year when he picked up the workload of injured J.J. Watt.


Honorable Mention

Ka'imi Fairbairn: 4 years, $17,650,000

Fairbairn is the third highest-paid kicker in the NFL. Fairbairn had a rough start against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1, missing an extra point and a deep 51-yard field goal attempt. Meanwhile, up in Dallas, Greg 'The Leg' Zuerlein is being paid half of what Fairbairn makes, but knocking them down from the logo, including a last-second, game-winning field goal to beat the Falcons. Former Texans kicker Randy Bullock is enjoying greater success in Cincinnati for considerably fewer dollars, too. Fun fact: Fairbairn is paid more than most Texans secondary defenders.


But really, the worst, and most regrettable Texans contract of all might be Bill O'Brien's deal- 4 years, $20 million.
