    Of course they should attempt to sign AB. Absolute no-brainer and don't overthink it.

    You would get AB at his best, as of now, because his NFL career depends on it. I mean COME ON...He's the best receiver in the game, not named Hopkins, when healthy.

    Furthermore, it ain't our money to spend so whatever guarantees to potentially win a SB is more than worth the risk. I believe the Texans and BoB will doing everything in their power to get Watson more help. I think this would be a title contending move. You do it and don't look back.

    EDIT: Think about all the risks Morey and Luhnow have taken... for once... we could say the Texans had the balls to take a chance (Tunsil trade was evidence of this). A HUGE chance to win it's first ever SB.​

    I mean he's recording private conversations between himself and his coach to post on social media. What coach/GM would not want to deal with that distraction in the locker room?

    Just a pipe dream, but AB in one side and Hop on the other? You see how elite this offense looks with a heathy Will Fuller. This would be amazing to watch. Where do you roll coverage? Yikes!

    Wonder how long before AB calls Watt a cracker for knocking the hell out of him , on a WR screen, in practice?

    The answer is **** no. Before we got Kenny Stills I would've been all for this but its not worth the trouble now. I think he goes to the Patriots, Seahawks or Bucs

    JJ Watt and AB were college teammates and more importantly friends... He's referred to AB as his brother numerous times.

    I think you're off base on this one and him coming to the Texans may be a real possibility.

    If there's a guy who can tap into Brown, it's JJ Watt. Which would explain why he followed the Texans recently. They know more than we do at this point. AND I can guarantee JJ has spoken with Cal and BoB on this.

    Furthermore, there's this...

    Hopkins and AB have mutual respect for each other.

    I don’t think there’s any tapping into Antonio at this point. He’s gone off the rails. I think he signs on a prove it deal, proves he’s still an asshole, and he’s out of the league next year. Nobody is bigger than the nfl. He’ll be made an example of.

    The villagers were also known to throw said child off a cliff.

    Don't know what that means. I was debating to go with that or "...leave it in the wilderness to die"

    since we're speaking metaphorically and all

    How can you say that? They have Carlos Hyde now!

    Is Melvin Gordon still unsigned? I don't know what's left the Chargers would want, but seems like something they might look at. If indeed the Texans are 'all-in'.

    This. Isn't BoB a giant control freak, even when compared to other NFL head coaches? I can't see him co-existing with AB. Hell, he couldn't do it with Clowney, and I doubt Clowney pulled his strings 1/100th of what AB would do.
