Let's talk about Mario Williams

85 posts in this topic

As you all know Mario Williams is a free agent, but what many of you might think is that he is a lock to go back to Houston. It turns out Williams might not be giving the home town discount that most expected.

One of the biggest issues Houston faces this offseason will be the challenge of re-signing two of their star players: running back Arian Foster and defensive stud Mario Williams. Both have been key cogs in the Texans' transformation. Foster is coming off his second consecutive Pro Bowl season and Williams—even though he went down toward the beginning of the season with a torn pectoral—is one of the most feared players on defense.

The main goal for the Texans will be to not only accomplish re-signing both of these players but also in staying under the cap, which is something they aren't currently. Williams made $18 million this past season and will definitely be looking for just as much if not more this offseason. Because Williams is an unrestricted free agent, the cash-strapped Texans will have to hope for a 'hometown discount.'

With the amount of money Williams may be able to make outside of Houston, and the shackles the Texans have with the salary cap, it is unlikely that Williams will be playing his home games at Reliant Stadium next year. It will be an end to a great run, but as they say all good things must come to an end.

Would you be against making a huge move and obtaining Super Mario?

Someone like Buffalo might make a play for him since they will be going to a 43 D and Coples will probably be gone before the 10 pick. Just a thought.....

I'm pretty sure Richardson said he will never overpay for high priced free agents again. So there's really no need to have a 10 page discussion on something that will never happen.

Every time these scenarios come up I can't help but think that more often than not, the biggest NFL contracts never live up to their billing....especially when the veteran is switching teams.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
