Let's talk about Mario Williams

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?

I'd love to have him, but he is way out of our price range.

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.

The only chance we have of Mario coming here is if he just really wants to come to back NC and would be willing to give a major discount to make it happen. There might be a 1 in 10 chance of that happening if the team was located in Raleigh, seeing as he already has a home in the area, but with the team still being 3 hours away the chance probably jumps to more like 1 in 100.
