    No, because he was benched, anyway.

    Seems like the criteria should be whether or not he is better than the current Bears safeties rather than whether he is better than the current Texans safeties. We have a low bar. Looks are free... sure, bring him in and take a look. Cost of a plane ticket is worth it.

    If he has a pulse, then he's an upgrade over what we have. In fact, if he hasn't a pulse, but hasn't been dead too long - he's still an upgrade over what we now have.

    No. Too old, too risky and too expensive. Give Wright and Conte a couple of games and then decide at the end of the season.

    If he's having a problem being out-coached in Houston, things aren't going to change here any time soon.

    After watching him in Baltimore (prior to being let go), he is injured and I think he is done to be honest.

    His last season in Baltimore he was unable to bring him arms up over his head and his play was not the Ed Reed of years gone by. He did provide some good leadership, but he was unable to wrap up when he tackled and I was not overly concerned when he left.

    As bad as our Safeties have been, I would still say no thanks, he is done.
