Bob McNair comments on Mario Williams’ departure

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 16, 2012 – 9:17 am

In 2006, the Texans were ripped for drafting Mario Williams over Reggie Bush with the No. 1 overall pick. On Thursday, Williams signed a deal with the Buffalo Bills that made him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.

Appearing on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Friday morning, Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair was asked by CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell about losing Williams in free agency.

“It’s difficult because he made such a great contribution to our team,” McNair said. “It is interesting now all of a sudden he’s the best defensive player in the league and six years ago we were the dumbest guys in the league, but that’s life. What you’re seeing happen is that there are a few stars around the league that are going to get a lot of money, and with the salary cap that just means that there’s less money to go around for the rest of the other players.

“I think what it’s going to do is it’s going to allow the teams that are in the lower quartile an opportunity to move up faster because with the new rookie salary pool, less money is going to go to the rookies, so those teams at the lower level are not penalized when they have a high draft pick which would’ve cost them a lot of money. Now they have more money available to go out and sign some other free agents, and there are going to be good free agents out there that are not going to command these $96 million contracts.”

Rovell will also interview McNair on “Sports Biz: Game On” tonight at 10:30 p.m. CT on the NBC Sports Network.
