Romeo Crennel is why the Texans will let someone else overpay Kareem Jackson

That might sound like a weird title for an article but if you look at Romeo Crennel’s history with cornerbacks he has gotten some pretty average corners to have pretty amazing years. His proven track record with pretty much any cornerback he was handed, is why the Texans won’t overpay Kareem Jackson.

Sorry but Kareem Jackson is not the top free agent cornerback

Kareem Jackson is being labeled by a lot of people as one of the top free agent corners. If you are a Texans fan that sounds very weird, and I am not here to add to the Kareem Jackson hate, just to show he isn’t the top corner in free agency. His play has been a roller coaster ride over the last few years, turning in two good seasons; one was perfectly timed with his free agency...

Projecting a contract for Kareem Jackson

Kareem Jackson has stated he wants to be a Texan next season, dollar signs might be the reason he isn’t. Jackson had a good year, it happened to be in a contract year, he hasn’t always played as well as he did this year. All of this will be taken into account when the team tries to write up a contract that they are happy with and that they think is fair for Jackson. I am going...
