Former Houston Texan tosses mansion onto market for $8.45 million

In what seems eons ago, the Houston Texans were a competitive team and perennial playoff contender.

In those bygone days, the only controversy surrounding the team was the drafting of defensive end Mario Williams over our hometown high school hero and UT legend, Vince Young. (Let's not even get started on then-USC star, Reggie Bush).

As fans know, Williams was selected No. 1 overall by the Texans in 2006. He quickly signed a six-year, $54 million contract and to celebrate, he nabbed a swanky manse in Memorial, which is now on sale for $8.45 million. Williams' home on 701 W Friar Tuck Ln. is listed by Krista Mcgowen of Nextgen Real Estate Properties.
