I like quite a few of the hires, I just do not care for the DC pick. There were a lot of good options out there, IMO.
I still don't see why we didn't kick the tires on Reggie Herring. There's just not a better tree to pluck guys from if you're intent on the 3-4 than Wade Phillips. The guy knows that defense backwards and forwards and he hand-picked Herring to follow him from Dallas to the Texans.
Sure looks like a nice resume to me.
I know they asked the Cardinals and they apparently said no, but I was pumped to hear they were targeting Ray Horton. Wish we could have gotten him.
But, I will say this. Unlike the previous regime of sticking a square peg in a round hole, it seems as if they went and got a guy who best ifts the talent already here.
