      The Texans’ starting right tackle will remain on the roster in 2017, but things have changed when it comes to how he’ll be paid. In the wake of a devastating injury that ended Derek Newton’s 2016 season and has already seen him placed on the PUP List for 2017, I think most Texans fans figured the team would either cut ties with their starting right tackle or renegotiate the terms of Newton’s contract. The latter happened today, with Newton agreeing to restructure his deal to remain with the Texans.Texans' Derek Newton restructures contract, accepts pay cut https://t.co/mRJkMB…

      The Texans’ trade of Brock Osweiler was rad, and then it became bad. Two months ago, the Brock Osweiler trade was genius and spectacular. Today the Brock Osweiler trade is dumb as hell. To rehash, on March 9th, Houston sent Brock Osweiler, a 2018 second round pick, and a 2017 sixth round pick to Cleveland in exchange for one of Cleveland’s 2017 fourth round picks. The trade saved Houston $10 million in cap space, $16 million in cash this season, and plucked the worst starting quarterback from the league off their roster. Cleveland, rolling in cap space, purchased a draft pick and c…
