  • Shepherd to Texans

    The Rams have traded Jacoby Shepherd to the Texans for a conditional seventh round draft pick in 2003. I expected Jacoby Shepherd to depart from the Rams sometime this offseason, but I didn't think it would be a trade. It can only help our Rams, though. This might also slow down speculation of Dex being a June 1st casualty.

    Any thoughts?

    The loss of Shepard is no surprise. The speculation of Dex being cut came with the notion that Shepard would also be cut. Whether or not McCleon's job is still in jeopardy is a question, but hopefully, if he is going, the Rams can work out a trade instead of his outright release.

      Glazer: Texans seeking RGIII-type compensation for trade down

      Texans asked for an RG3-type deal for first overall pick
      Posted by Michael David Smith on May 7, 2014, 6:59 PM EDT

      If the Texans are going to move down from the first overall pick in the draft, they want a huge bounty of picks. Which means they’re probably not trading down.

      According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, when a team with a Top 10 pick contacted the Texans to ask what it would take to trade up to No. 1, the Texans responded that it would take what Washington packaged to move up and draft Robert Griffin III two years ago: Three first-round picks and a second-round pick.

      “The Houston Texans said, ‘If you want our pick, it’s three number ones and a two,’” Glazer said. “When RG3 was traded, that’s what they got. . . . But, no. No one’s giving up three number ones and a two.”

      What we don’t know is where in the Top 10 that team wanted to move up from. It’s possible that the Texans might be willing to accept less if a team in the 2-4 range asked them to move down just a couple spots. Glazer added that the Texans’ trade demands are on “a sliding scale,” meaning they’d ask for more compensation the further back they were going to move.

      But as it stands, it sounds like, given what the Texans are demanding, they’re keeping the first overall pick.

      Texans - Veteran QB, Open to Trade 1st pick
      by demiurge
      They want to go with a veteran QB even if they draft a rookie. Per their owner, Bob McNair. Normally you think of smokescreens when people talk of the draft, but there's no reason for the team with the 1st overall pick to do that.

      I think they are seeing the benefit of what the Rams gained for the RGIII trade and want in on some of that action.

      This is actually pretty bad for the Rams - the price for #2 just went down, because #1 is available. It also tells people that the Texans don't hold much stock in the the value of a top pick in this draft.

      The chance of us drafting Matthews at #2 just went up a notch in my mind. Still, haven't seen the combine yet - let's hope there's 2 players that just produce transcendental drill scores.

      Texans may give up 1st round in trade
      by psycho9985 wire reports INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 26, 2006) -- Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush might not land with the Houston Texans after all.
      Texans general manager Charley Casserly said that the Texans have been talking to teams about possibly trading the first pick in the 2006 draft.
      It has been widely speculated that the Heisman Trophy winning running back out of Southern California would end up with the Texans because they recently gave quarterback David Carr a three-year contract extension.
      The Texans, who finished 2-14 last season, have multiple needs that might be filled with one major move.
      "There's clearly players at the top of this draft that are marquee players," Casserly said. "Players that are impact players, players that are going to go to the Pro Bowl, players that are going to sell tickets. We're going to get offers for this pick. We've already had discussions with teams. I think there's value in our pick.
      "Whether it's Reggie Bush, Vince Young or Matt Leinart, those three players are going to produce trade offers. We are definitely going to have some choices when it comes to draft day."
