Anthony Weaver perfectly captured the extremely grim mood surrounding the Texans with one game remaining in a season gone awry.

“Obviously, when your head coach gets fired four games in, you do everything you can to rally the team but when it starts going south, it’s a little bit like you’re slow dancing in a burning room, right?” the Texans’ first-year defensive coordinator said. “You know you’re going down and you’re doing everything you can to get there, but it’s just not getting done.”

When Weaver got promoted to defensive coordinator last year, the Texans’ were coming off consecutive AFC South division titles and the team was confident that it would be a strong playoff contender again.

Instead, a dramatic downward spiral unfolded. That included the firing of coach and general manager Bill O’Brien after an 0-4 start.

An ugly 4-11 record and multiple personnel issues on both sides of the football have defined the team as the Texans are at a crossroads heading into Sunday’s meaningless season finale against the Tennessee Titans at NRG Stadium.

As the Texans head into a critical offseason, here are some of the most pressing issues on their agenda:

Hire a new coach and general manager
The Texans plan to hire a general manager first.

They already have interviewed former Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell and former Bengals coach Marvin Lewis for the head coaching vacancy. They interviewed Texans director of player personnel Matt Bazirgan and ESPN analyst Louis Riddick for the general manager job.

They’re expected to conduct a wide-ranging search for both positions.

Among the multiple general manager candidates the Texans are considered likely to explore, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly: Terry Fontenot (Saints), Trent Kirchner, Scott Fitterer and Cheap Alonzo Highsmith Jersey (Seahawks), Ed Dodds (Colts), Mike Borgonzi and Ryan Poles (Chiefs), Joe Schoen and Malik Boyd (Bills), Will McClay (Cowboys), Brandon Hunt (Steelers), Adam Peters (49ers), George Paton (Vikings) and John Dorsey (Eagles).

Among the head coaching candidates expected to draw consideration, according to sources: Eric Bieniemy (Chiefs), Joe Brady (Panthers), Matt Eberflus (Colts), Brian Daboll and Leslie Frazier (Bills), Arthur Smith (Titans), Brandon Staley (Rams), Robert Saleh (49ers), Don “Wink” Martindale and Greg Roman (Ravens) and Nick Sirianni (Colts).

“You trust Mr. (Cal) McNair and his team to be able to make that right decision,” Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks said. “I think he’s such a smart man that he knows what his team needs and, whatever he does, you’ve just got to trust him.”

Turning it around
There are generally two types of reconstruction projects: A complete tear-down or a refurbishing.

Because of the presence of quarterback Deshaun Watson, the Texans aren’t considered a total rebuild despite not having first-round and second-round draft picks after last year’s trade with Miami for left tackle Laremy Tunsil.

“They can turn this thing around quickly, and I could see the Texans winning the division next year if they get the right leadership and are able to fix a lot of things this offseason,” an NFC executive said. “Watson is a legitimate franchise quarterback, a winner that makes the people around him better. Look at what he did this year with everything going on, and he just keeps rolling.

“This is a very attractive job that people want, and he’s the major reason why. If they put together a solid draft and have some good, inexpensive signings since they don’t have a lot of salary-cap space, I think the Texans can get back in the playoffs fast. It’s a refurbishing, not a tear-down.”

What to do about Watt
There is no bigger pending decision than determining the future of defensive end J.J. Watt.

Depending on how Watt feels about the incoming new leadership structure — he has said he doesn’t want to be part of a rebuild — and how the new management feels about a 31-year-old defensive end whose production declined this year despite playing in every game, his ultra-successful run with the Texans could come to an end.

Although the team would ideally want Watt to finish his career in a Texans uniform, it’s a high-level conversation to be had later once the team hires a general manager and coach.

Watt wasn’t made available to teams at the NFL trade deadline, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly. That stance could obviously change, though, with new management.

“Honestly, I would trade J.J. if I was the Texans,” an AFC executive said. “They don’t have a lot of draft capital, and that’s what they need to start improving their roster. He’s a tradable asset. They should consider moving on from him while they can still get back something decent for him, even if it’s a couple of middle-round draft picks.”

Watt’s six-year, $100 million contract expires after the 2021 season. He’s due a $17.5 million nonguaranteed base salary. Although the Texans can afford to carry Watt’s salary, if they retain him, it would be logical to extend his deal and restructure his contract by converting all or a portion of his pay into a signing bonus and reducing his salary-cap figure. The Texans could also trade or cut Watt to unload his salary and create more room under the salary cap.

“I don’t have any guarantees left in my contact, so something’s got to happen one way or another,” Watt said this week when asked about his future. “I’m not sure; there’s too many unknowns.”

Will Fuller a free agent
Wide receiver Will Fuller was having the best season of his career until he was suspended for six games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

The pending unrestricted free agent might have played his final game for the Texans unless he’s signed to a new contract after the season or designated as their franchise player. The Texans have expressed interest in retaining Fuller, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly, but this punishment complicates the situation and could affect his market value.

Before this setback, Fuller was easing concerns about his durability, and he was expected to land a contract paying between $15 million and $17 million annually.

Fuller is one of the game’s most dangerous deep threats, and Watson loves throwing to him. If a short-term financial compromise can be reached, either through a one-year contract or by designating him as their franchise player, the Texans could hold on to the speedy former Notre Dame standout.

The NFL Draft is an important factor in turning a franchise’s fortunes around. Just as important, if not more so, is player acquisition. Combing the waiver wire to pluck gems out of other GMs’ table scraps. Recognizing potential talent before it’s out of sight, out of mind or snatched up by another needy team. Occasionally working trades for not just players you covet, but ones that will actually make an impact on the current roster.

Of course, there’s a flip side to all of that. Knowing when to cut your losses and move on. Recognizing the decline or stagnation of older players. Properly discerning player value and not giving up the farm for the tractor, so to speak.

With 48 years worth of give and take in our rear view, I thought it would be interesting to look back on both the direct and indirect comings and goings of Saints’ players, in regards to their OTHER known address(es). What teams have the Saints reaped the most talent from over the years? Conversely, what teams have benefited most from the personnel decisions Saints’ GMs have made?

In order to tackle this project, I decided to use Football Reference’s approximate value (AV) statistic to gauge hindsight worth, as it pertains to the Saints franchise alone. This is far from a perfect method, especially since tenure automatically inflates this number, while rash decisions could see it skyrocket, albeit on (an)other roster(s).

One glaring example of the latter is Rob Ninkovich, who has blossomed into a exceptional DE/OLB during his six seasons with the Patriots. Having only played in three games for the Black & Gold, he holds a zero Saints AV and doesn’t even appear on this flow chart. Off the top of my head, Marc Bulger, Jake Delhomme, Cheap Ken Burrough Jersey, Shayne Graham and Rafael Septien are a few others that fit this description. Examples of coming aboard too late to help: Cheap Haywood Jeffires Jersey, Germane Crowell, Carl Lee, Cheap Allen Pinkett Jersey and Bryan Cox.

In short, if I was basing this presentation on overall AV, these players would all appear somewhere on this list. As is, it’s “as Saints” only and a cutoff point of 4+ AV, since that’s how far I had to descend the list, in order to gather at least one direct move to/from each of the other 31 NFL franchises. In case you’re curious, Troy Evans (from Texans to Saints) is the lowest rated Saints player involved in a direct shift, as featured on this list. The highest is, of course, Drew Brees (from Chargers to Saints).

For the sake of trying to look like I know what I’m talking about, I will offer commentary on each head-to-head match up, briefly analyzing the direct moves, first and foremost. I will also attempt to determine a “winner” in each; that being based entirely on my opinion. As far as the order listed, try not to read too much into that. As someone who has followed this team for decades, I have a pretty good feel of what was a good or bad move, even without the AVs. I mainly utilized it for the sake of relevance and list appeal, not a hard fast value tag, in terms of credits/debits.

Let’s roll.


Directly From: Jerry Fontenot, Dave Whitsell, Doug Atkins, Al Dodd, Andy Livingston, Brian Schweda, Alex Brown, John Gilliam, Jerry Moore, Brad Muster

Directly To: Jermon Bushrod, Emanuel Zanders, Sedrick Ellis, Brian De La Puente, Josh Bullocks, Tommy Barnhardt, Craig “Ironhead” Heyward, Steve Walsh, Terry Schmidt, Tyrone Hughes, Eddie Kennison, Jimmy Hester, Troy Wilson
Also From: Tommy Barnhardt, Bobby Douglass, Earl Leggett
Also To: Charles Grant, Doug Brien, Billy Newsome, Jeff Blake, John Gilliam, Danny Wuerffel

Fontenot was a solid center for several seasons and Whitsell was the first Pro Bowl player in Saints history, leading the team with 10 INTs in their inaugural season. He’d go on to pick off 9 more over the next two seasons before retiring. Doug Atkins is a HOFer that at least brought leadership and respectability to that same fledgling defensive unit, even if he happened to be running on empty (there’s your complimentary Jackson Browne concert, Dave). Al Dodd was one of Billy Kilmer’s favorite targets and was instrumental on the last minute drive that set up Tom Dempsey’s record breaking 63 yard field goal in 1970. John Gilliam provided a few cheap thrills as a returns specialist. His 94 yard return of the opening kickoff against the Rams will forever stand as the quickest scoring play of any team in NFL history. He’s also one of few Saints players with multiple tenures, briefly returning to the team ten years later, before hanging up his cleats. In the loss column, Jermon Bushrod and Sedrick Ellis both started on the 2009 Super Bowl champion squad, though neither was spectacular. Tyrone Hughes was one of the more dynamic returns specialists in team history, once taking two kickoffs back for TDs against the Rams. While a fan favorite, Ironhead did little to help his cause during the Mora regime and remains one of the more enigmatic players in franchise history. Steve Walsh was 10-9 as a Saints starter and helped lead the team to the playoffs in his first (and only) year under center. He also came at a steep price, but we’ll save that demerit for the Cowboys recap. This one’s close, but I have to give it to the Saints, as Chicago didn’t truly benefit from anyone we sent their way.

Which legends stand out for the Houston Oilers/turned Tennessee Titans?

The Houston Oilers were part of the original American Football League in 1960. The league consisted of just eight teams but nonetheless, this franchise from the Lone Star State (born the same year as the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys) would win the AFL’s first two championships.

There would also be some lean times for the franchise. And 1996 proved to be the team’s final season in Houston and at the Astrodome. The Tennessee Oilers would turn into a traveling road show the following two years and finally in ’99, become the Titans. The new look obviously paid off as the club made its first and only Super Bowl appearance in what proved to a be a 23-16 setback to the then-St. Louis Rams.

These days, the team is coming off a 2019 season in which they came up one victory away from a return trip to the “Big Game.” This is a franchise with a rich history on both sides of the ball. From quarterbacks Cheap George Blanda Jersey and Cheap Steve McNair Jersey to running backs Cheap Eddie George Jersey, Chris Henry and current powerhouse Cheap Derrick Henry Jersey. The star wideouts include Cheap Charley Hennigan Jersey, Cheap Ernest Givins Jersey, Cheap Haywood Jeffires Jersey and there’s tight end Cheap Delanie Walker Jersey.

There have been Hall of Fame defenders such as Cheap Ken Houston Jersey, Cheap Elvin Bethea Jersey, Cheap Curley Culp Jersey and Cheap Robert Brazile Jersey to steady warriors such as Cheap Al Smith Jersey, Cheap Ray Childress Jersey, Cheap Cris Dishman Jersey and Cheap Blaine Bishop Jersey, as well as pass-rusher Cheap Jevon Kearse Jersey and reliable Jurrell Casey (traded his offseason to the Denver Broncos).

However, this Mount Rushmore (in alphabetical order) definitely has an offensive feel to it. So which four players were chosen?

CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Former Tennessee Titans defensive lineman Cheap Albert Haynesworth Jersey was arrested Monday after he was accused of threatening and yelling at his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

Cleveland, Tennessee, police officers responded at 4:34 p.m. to a report that Haynesworth was yelling at his ex-girlfriend, according to a statement from the police. The woman told officers Haynesworth had driven there from his home in Franklin, Tennessee, 160 miles away, after making threats to physically harm her and her boyfriend. No physical assault was reported, according to the police statement.

“After being told multiple times to stop yelling and cursing, Haynesworth was taken into custody, charged with domestic assault and disorderly conduct and transported to the Bradley County Justice Center,” the statement reads.

A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said Tuesday that Haynesworth had been released on $1,500 bond. An email to a lawyer who has previously represented Haynesworth was not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.

Haynesworth has been receiving dialysis since his kidneys failed. After he revealed the news last summer, Vanderbilt University Medical Center said it had more than 1,000 calls and offers to donate a kidney or ask about the process within a day. However, he has not yet received a transplant.

Haynesworth played 10 seasons in the NFL. He spent his first seven seasons with the Titans, who selected him No. 15 overall in the 2002 draft out of the University of Tennessee. Haynesworth also played for Washington, New England and Tampa Bay.

He was selected as an All-Pro after the 2007 and 2008 seasons and had 30-plus sacks in 123 games.

Haynesworth had his greatest season in 2008, when he had 8.5 sacks while leading the Titans to a 13-3 record and the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC before they lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional playoffs.
