With the clock creeping slowly toward the first pick in the draft, the Texans have reportedly made up their mind.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Texans are “locked in” on their player of choice, and “not expecting a trade.”
This is kind of like when the guy at the car lot says, “I don’t know, let me go talk to the finance guy and see if I can do any better.”
If someone wants to make a deal with the Texans, it will take one phone call. A call which will take far fewer than five hours to consummate. A call which has been made, in various manners, over the last few weeks.
What the Texans are doing is calling last call. There’s still time to get a drink, if you want one.
