MMQB: The Texans' Offseason Changes

In this week's Monday Morning Quarterback, Peter King talks with GM Rick Smith about the Texans' offseason changes, including the value of being emotionally detached from his plays and the 20-70-10 roster strategy. The recent information on the Saints' ledgers, Jim Harbaugh's ridiculousness regarding Peyton Manning, and reports the Dolphins' decision to appear on Hard Knocks actually wasn't the decision of owner Stephen Ross.

Tom Gower continues an annual FO tradition of looking back at the draft from six years ago. Remember choosing between a spread quarterback from Texas and a dropback passer from USC? Yeah, that didn't work out.

Bears Trade for Brandon Marshall

Jay Glazer with some big unexpected news, reporting the Bears have acquired wide receiver Brandon Marshall from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for two third-round picks. Apparently the reports out of Chicago that the Bears were not the favorites for Vincent Jackson were on the money.

Marshall of course has a fairly successful history with Jay Cutler when they were in Denver together, and also fits Chicago's need for a big wide receiver. I have no idea what this means for Miami's pursuit of a shiny new quarterback.

49ers Sign Randy Moss

Adam Schefter is reporting Randy Moss will make his return to the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, signing a one-year deal after his workout catching passes from Jim Harbaugh this morning.

Of the rumored destinations for a hypothetical Randy Moss who is fast and motivated, I thought San Francisco was one of those that made sense. As we saw during the NFC Championship Game, the 49ers receivers might as well not have been on the field.
