[ESPN] Moulds a Texan

ESPN's John Clayton reports that Eric Moulds is officially a Texan. No "terms" have been disclosed, of course, which is the only item that has been truly uncertain for at least a week, as Moulds and the Texans had already publicly acknowledged that they had agreed upon a contract. As mentioned previously, whether the Texans part with a 4th or a 5th round draft pick is a rather significant "term". If only I could perform my job in the half-ass way that Clayton and his ilk do, "breaking" stories minus the most important details. Sure would allow me much more time for blogging.

Moulds seems thrilled to line up next to Andre Johnson, and I'll be the first of many to say that I'm thrilled to know that he's thrilled. Replacing Bradford with Moulds is a fantastic upgrade at the #2 WR spot for Houston. Signings like Moulds, Putzier, Weaver, Cowart and Flanagan allow Casserly & Company to now focus on pursuing that magical "best player available" with each of their top draft picks on April 29, which is quite impressive considering the terrific amount of water that the U.S.S. Texan was taking on at the end of the regular season. I've always had the feeling that Capers convinced McNair that his way of building a team was the best way, limiting Casserly's options as a GM. Maybe that's true and maybe it's not, but whoever is making these decisions is certainly doing a quality job.

I will pen a more detailed post on this later, but what a great off-season the Texans have had. Moulds is the first legitimate No. 2 WR in franchise history. I can't wait for September.
