Houston Texans Notes, Quotes 2009-04-10
--OLB Cato June signed with the Texans. He agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million, including a $500,000 signing bonus. The deal could be worth as much as $2 million.


The Texans also have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent middle linebacker Buster Davis, who played at Indianapolis last season.

June, who came to Houston early this week to meet with the Texans, spent the last two seasons with Tampa Bay before being released in February.

June, 29, is 6-0, 227. He'll compete with Xavier Adibi for the starting job on the weak side. June had 63 tackles, including 49 unassisted, for the Buccaneers last season.

June, who grew up in Washington D.C. and played at Michigan, spent his first four seasons with Indianapolis before signing with Tampa Bay as a free agent. With the Colts, he started on their Super Bowl XLI-winning team. He also was voted to the Pro Bowl one time.

--If the owners and NFL Players Association fail to work out a new collective bargaining agreement, 2010 will be an uncapped year, and free agency will increase from four to six years.

That means Owen Daniels and DeMeco Ryans wouldn't be unrestricted. Dunta Robinson would qualify as a six-year veteran, but the Texans could franchise him again. Also, teams will get to protect two players because a transition tag will be added to the franchise designation.

Meanwhile, the Texans surveyed Tuesday said they missed Robinson and Ryans but understood their situations.

"Those are some of the things that happen this time of the (year)," Pro Bowl WR Andre Johnson said. "Those guys will be fine.

"I'm pretty sure they'll be here with us during regular season. I'm pretty sure that wherever they are, they're going to be working out and getting ready for the season."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's business. It's hard (not having them) because they're captains of the team. But sometimes you have to take care of things. I wish them the very best, and I look forward to them coming back." -- DE Mario Williams on the absence of LB DeMeco Ryans and CB Dunta Robinson at the offseason workouts.
