I'll tell you after the NFL draft . . .
that seems to be the path that Smithiak is taking
• Free agent guard Chester Pitts(notes), who is still recovering from knee surgery, had visits scheduled with the 49ers and Jets after the NFLPA meetings in Hawaii. Pitts is still the Texans’ player rep. He went to Twitter to lobby the Bengals to bring him in, too. Pitts says he expects to be healthy between May 1 and June 1.
so no apparent forward progress on Pitts and no mention of Demeco Ryans yet. . . .
I found this following quotation slightly alarming
The Texans don’t have as many needs this offseason as they have in the past. Their philosophy is to build through the draft and fill in with free agents. Expect them to sign more free agents after the draft than before.
Have they not been faithfully reading Battle Red Blog ? Do they not see the gaping holes that we have cited?
I don't know who the author is for the Yahoo Texans Team report and the alleged "inside slant" but should I be worried that they are reported to not have as many needs? or is the operative term here "not as many" ?
