Williams going to Houston

The Houston Texans shocked the NFL world on Friday night.

It seemed like a given they would take USC running back Reggie Bush with the first pick of the 2006 draft.

But after they deemed Bush's contract demands too steep, they made a deal with North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams. With a contract agreement done, the Texans will now pick Williams with the number one overall pick.

So with Bush still available to the Saints at the two spot, this could lead to some whealing and dealing.

According to an NFL source, the Jets will talk to the Saints about what it will take to trade up from four to two. The NFL value chart dictates that the Jets can get this trade done by trading their second round pick, and their first of two third rounders.

The Jets could use a game-breaker on offense, and Bush is just that.

Saturday at Radio City Music Hall should be great theater for Jets fans.
