Mays hopes fans forgive him for hit on Schaub
The wife of linebacker Joe Mays was understandably concerned when her husband signed with the Houston Texans less than a year after he delivered a hit on Matt Schaub that took a chunk out of the quarterback's ear.
Mays says: "She was hoping that I didn't get jumped in the locker room."
Turns out she had nothing to worry about. Mays practiced with the Texans for the first time Wednesday and got a warm welcome from his new team.
Mays, who was released by the Broncos last week, says he and Schaub talked and "it's over with."
Schaub says he was never upset with Mays and that hits like that are part of football.
