Bradie James: “This is the best team in Texas”

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 16, 2012 – 3:59 pm

Inside linebacker Bradie James likely ingratiated himself to many a Texans fan on Monday in his opening remarks to the Houston media gathered at Reliant Stadium.

“It feels great to be here,” said James, who signed with Houston on Friday after nine seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. “Being reunited with Wade (Phillips) is great, and Reggie (Herring). This is a great team. As I’ve been told on Twitter, this is the best team in Texas. The opportunity is here for us to do some great things. I’m just happy to be a part of it.”

James also provided an interesting breakdown of the dynamic between Phillips and Herring, who coached him for several seasons in Dallas.

“Reggie Herring, he’s a guy that complements Wade,” James said. “Wade is kind of laidback, but not too laidback. If you want to get Wade riled up, miss an assignment and he’ll get after you. Reggie is the guy that is a spit-on-the-side-of-your-face type of guy. He’s just on you like an old nagging woman, but they complement each other. You can just tell how the [defensive players] rallied around those two last year, and there is talent all over the field out here. Just watching them on film a couple days ago, it was impressive.”

    Many feel that Bradie James was a great a defense leader while in Dallas. With a 100 tackels to his credit each of the last 6 years, he is a proven defense threat. Now that he has left Big D, he can come here to Houston and truely preform like a true Texan!

    Best free agent signing by the Texans since…. well… last year. (sarcasm) Nice to have a winning NFL team in Houston again. Hated to see Demeco go but James is a better ILB in this system. Congrats Texans.

    It’s great to have Bradie James down here with us. He can add to our already great defensive line. I’m looking forward to watching them this season. GO TEXANS!!!!!!!

    Hello!?!?!? Is anyone aware that MIke Wallace is available for a 1st round pick? He’s played the Z WR before, he’s young enough to take over for Andre soon, and he’s better than anyone that will be available in the draft at the 26th pick. Someone get on this. If nothing else, just give a low ball offer to force Pitt to spend more money out of their cap than the current tender on him. This is a no-brainer.

    I loved watching the turn around with the defense last season, however the pass defense is still a bit suspect. Can’t wait to see them this season, since they have time to learn the defense more, they should be awesome this season. GO TEXANS!!

    I been to a few message boards and seen posts from Cowboy fans that think letting James go was NUTS.

    christopherk, Pitt listed Wallaces as a restricted free agent. Any team can make him an offer then he has the opportunity to take that to Pitt (by April 20th) and they have the option to match it or let him go. However, in order to sign him, the team that takes him has to give up their original 1st round draft pick. (so a team like Cleveland can’t trade down with the Giants and give up the 32nd pick, they would have to give up their 4th overall pick) With the Texans at 26, it basically costs just the 26th overall pick plus his contract. Reports say Wallace wants top 5 WR money, but he would obviously take something decent if his only other option is the 2.5 million he is slated to receive from Pitt.

    4 of 6 people that rated my comment don’t want to make 26 year old Mike Wallace a Texan? You’re all crazy. A speed demon with great hands would fit perfect.
