Texans looking to lock-up DD

Postby TTTBone » Mon Jul 11, 2005 3:50 pm

(July 8, 2005) -- The Texans are determined to lock up Domanick Davis for future seasons before the third-year running back can become a restricted free agent. The two sides soon will be discussing a long-term contract extension that would keep Davis, now aiming for his third consecutive 1,000-plus-yard rushing season, in Houston for at least the next five seasons.

It is expected to be completed by the time the Texans break training camp later this summer. But first, the Texans want to get deals done with each of their six draft picks. Once they do, they will move on to business with Davis, who despite being scheduled to make $380,000 this season in the last year of his three-year contract has attended all the Texans' OTAs.

Davis will turn 25 in October, and once his new deal is signed -- and it would be a major upset if it weren't -- he can bank on spending the prime years of his career in Houston.

No major news here, but it does show that the Texans do have faith in DD, despite rumors to the contrary.

I wouldnt be surprised if some of the $$$ isn't more window dressing than in most deals... Leaving Houston with a fairly easy out should they decide going into 2004 they need to upgrade.
