Texans put off contract talks with TE Daniels


According to Yahoo! the Houston Texans have decided to let the one year tender signed by Owen Daniels expire before negotiating a new contract for their Pro Bowl tight end. The article states that O.D. wants to be the highest paid TE in the NFL.

It is unfortunate how these contract negotiations play out in the media. We as fans naturally form an opinion about the players involved with little to no information surrounding the circumstances of the negotiations. All I hope is that Daniels, upset about his contract situation or not, comes out and gives us another Pro Bowl caliber season and earns a huge extension. It goes without saying that having a TE catching first downs in the middle of the field is instrumental to the success of the Texans offense. From the sound of it, Owen is going to have to earn his big pay day the old fashion way. He’s going to have to produce.
