RTC: Texans' window is not closing

By Tania Ganguli

The Houston Chronicle printed its special section this weekend, and the section discussed whether or not the Texans window of opportunity to win a Super Bowl was closing. Mostly they concluded "not," such as in this story by Dale Robertson and this column by Jerome Solomon. The rest of the section looks at what teams could stand in the Texans' way, what Matt Schaub's role will be and how general manager Rick Smith arrived at his position. The story on Smith was my last piece for the Chronicle, and I'll have some more thoughts on it later in the day.

Antonio Smith resurfaces again to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle and to Mark Berman of Fox 26. He tells them he forgives Richie Incognito. And himself.

Unlike Tim Tebow, three Texans cuts did not make it through the waiver-wire system. Tyler Clutts got claimed by Miami, Dennis Johnson by Cleveland and Chris Jones by Tampa Bay, writes Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com.
