Texans May Trade Number One Pick
By Robert H. Kelly
Houston Texans general manager Charley Casserly was quoted Sunday that the possible trade the Texans’ first round pick might help the Texans fill multiple positions.
There's clearly players at the top of this draft that are marquee players. Players that are impact players, players that are going to go to the Pro Bowl, players that are going to sell tickets. We're going to get offers for this pick. We've already had discussions with teams. I think there's value in our pick.
It has been widely expected that the Texans would select Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush.
When the Texans gave quarterback David Carr a three year contact extension, it sent a clear message that he was not part of the problem with the Texans’ offense.
I just cannot figure the thinking of the Texans’ front office. They fire their head coach, but keep the general manager.
It just doesn’t make sense. Keep Casserly and possibly trade the first round pick.
I just don’t get professional football. Oh well, at least the Astros won the National League and went to the World Series this past year.
I guess the Texans will continue to be the only professional team in Houston without any type of championship.
