The Houston Texans threw the National Football League draft into tumult last night, signing defensive end Mario Williams to make him the No. 1 pick and passing on running back Reggie Bush, the Heisman Trophy winner.
ESPN reported that Williams’s deal was for six years and $54 million, with $26.5 million guaranteed.
Apparently when your team goes 2-14 the previous year, you currently have the #1 draft pick and talents like Vince Young and
Reggie Bush an NCAA rules violator are up for grabs… an unknown defensive end is a must have! Charlie Casserly, you are a moron.
ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli sums it up pretty well:
Ladies and gentlemen, your Houston Texans, an outfit that might do better were Mr. Magoo executing its lottery selections. Hand out the darts, folks, and take cover. Even quarterback David Carr, throwing from his back, which is where he has been for most of his four seasons in Houston, has better aim than his bosses.
Of course, I still would’ve liked to see them send David Carr packing and utilize the #1 draft pick for an all-around athlete like Vince Young.
But apparently the Texans organization is quite content with winning an average of 4.5 games per year. Is it too late to bring back the Oilers?
