Eagles | Reid discusses Moulds
Wed, 29 Mar 2006 18:51:37 -0800

Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said the team has looked at Buffalo Bills WR Eric Moulds. He said the team is going through an evaluation process right now.

I don't think the Eagles want him as much as Moulds wants them.

Not only is Casserly busy scouting, he is trying to acquire receiver Eric Moulds in a trade with Buffalo. With Casserly leading the way, the Texans have enjoyed a productive free agent period, signing eight players.

Kubiak and his staff identified the players they wanted. It has been up to Casserly and director of negotiations Dan Ferens to acquire them. After last season, Casserly gave up some of his non-personnel responsibilities to Ferens.

I want Moulds :drool:

so its looking about 95% sure that we will have Moulds next season...I wonder what "a lot of money" means. But for those worried about the cap, think of it this way...if Moulds helps us get more wins, we will be lower in next year's draft, meaning we will have to pay less to our draft picks! Lol, that might be a complex way of looking at it, but we got ourselves a #2 WR, so who cares!

Also, if Bennie is healthy, we will have an offense, at least skill players, that will heavily resemble the Colts (2 Pro-Bowl calibre WR's, versatile RB, even without Reggie, he only furthers that, 2 great receiving TE's). Obviously we are lacking in the O-line department and Peyton is the best QB in the league, at least in the regular season. But after only half an offseason we have gone from worst Offense in the NFL to downright explosive...oh, and we have some guy, number 13, who is supposed to be pretty fast... :-)

man I'm actually anxious to see this unit in action. If they get a tackle @ #33, & Carr steps it up, we should have one of the most dangerous offenses in the league.

we should be the best big-play team in the NFL with Bush, AJ, Mathis, & Moulds.

Eagles | Gaffney will be used as slot receiver
Wed, 29 Mar 2006 18:52:57 -0800

Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Jabar Gaffney will be used a lot inside in three-receiver sets, according to head coach Andy Reid. Reid said, "One thing that jumps out at you when you look at his tapes is he doesn't drop the ball. Great hands and runs very good routes. In this offense, those things go a long way. He has a good feel for the safety. We're going to use him a lot as the inside (slot) receiver in three-receiver sets. He wasn't afraid to cross the middle with linebackers and safeties."

Moulds Done Deal to Texans

Posted: March 29, 2006

Hi folks. Local 2 sports has been in contact with people close to the Eric Moulds negotiations with the Eagles. Late Wednesday afternoon The "WIP" sports radio station in Philly is reporting that Moulds and his agent have come to terms with the Texans on a contract extension. Now both the Texans and Bills are working out details on a trade that will get him to Houston.

More tonight on KPRC Local 2 Sports at 10

I don't think it's crazy. I don't think we'll be a playoff team next year, but I sure damn well think we'll be in the running during the later parts of the year. I'll wait to see how our draft goes, but a 5, 6 or even 7 game improvement doesn't seem like a stretch the way this offseason is going. I've been antsy for baseball season to start, but my gosh, NFL offseason is already long enough. With these moves, I don't know how I'm going to last through the summer. :redtowel:

I heard the BILLS were interested in picking up Antwaan Peek. Maybe that is why we have signed DE and LB's this off Season. Texans might compensate the Bills with a 5th or 6th and Peek. They picked up Foley who used to be a TEXAN and he has done real well for them so they probably view PEEK as the same type player. (By the way My CAPS isn't Broken) I just can't stand the little wimps that worry about someone using all CAPS to EMPHASIZE a POINT. Go CRY to your MOM not to me!!!!!

That is insane. IN.SANE. The Texans placed a first round tender on Peek this year.

Buffalo has no leverage in this deal. They will not pay his full salary this year, and will have to cut him if they don't make a trade. The Texans are in the catbirds seat on this one.

I'm thinking 5th rounder.

With Moulds, our offense will be amazing if we have really fixed the O-line.

That is the key to our season. If it winds up being fixed, look for a reasonably good season (8-8?). If not fixed, it won't matter who we have brought in in the skill position as we won't be able to do anything with them. Still need a RG and a RT that are young and probably a RG who is a June 1 cut from another team to get enough talent and depth on the O-line. Sure like what we have done this offseason though.

It was great being on for all this time and getting live updates from you guys and the bottom line. But now it's time to get some sleep. I hope to wake up and the new name for this topic to be "Moulds traded to the Texans".


u and me both.

I think the line will be much better than last season, especially with Flanagan centering the rock and McKinney back where he belongs.

if casserly pulls this off he will have done the one thing he has needed to do for the past 3 years...has anyone else started to see the picture here that maybe it wasn't casserly but it was capers unwillingness to go after free agents that has stunted the growth of this franchise


Glad someone mentioned this... In '02 when Capers was hired he stated. "I made the mistake in Carolina of building the team via free agency, We were good but for only a 2 year span. If I had it to do over again I would have built more through the draft." Maybe the Carolina job scared him out of goin after free agents and gambling on players in the draft.

I like the agressive turnaround apprach as long as we build depth in the draft. not just fill the needs we have left.... Patriots have quality depth... we need FA to start with but prospects eventually have to fill those shoes.

Why not trade them Wade for Moulds. If we did that we would get rid of some cap problems ourselves.

I could live with that. Then use that cap space to sign CB ahmed Plummer if he is still out there.

Because of Wade HUGE signing bonus, trading him will make us eat an enormous cap hit

I heard the BILLS were interested in picking up Antwaan Peek. Maybe that is why we have signed DE and LB's this off Season. Texans might compensate the Bills with a 5th or 6th and Peek. They picked up Foley who used to be a TEXAN and he has done real well for them so they probably view PEEK as the same type player. (By the way My CAPS isn't Broken) I just can't stand the little wimps that worry about someone using all CAPS to EMPHASIZE a POINT. Go CRY to your MOM not to me!!!!!

You might think more about the little wimps that worry about the fact Foley is a Charger not a Bill.

Houston's local NBC affiliate is now chiming in on this. Well sorta it's basically stuff we have already heard but here is the link none the less:

and being this was uploaded onto their site after midnight tonight I guess we will be hearing more about this today hopefully because as he said: "More tonight on KPRC Local 2 Sports at 10".

many said this offseason was going slow, this has been the best TEXAN offseason ever. Who would of thought we would fill the RDE, TE, C, #2WR, MLB, with a solid starter at all positions.

Our biggest needs right now would be RT and FS in my opinion. We can basically go BPA for the entire draft.

i hope we get moulds, i mean some are not to thrilled cause of his age but he would be a good addition to our team he can still be a 1,000 yrd reciever, and he would be the 2nd best WR we have IMO. plus its a big name signing like everyone wanted. It will honestly give our passing game a boost. and make AJ more productive as well !

The only position that I would still like to see an addition at is #2 corner. Maybe the staff thinks that P-Burnt can fill the role, or maybe Faggins will be able to, but personally I wouldn't mind seeing a veteran at the position. Even if Dunta is a pretty good corner throughout the league, our other side is so difficult to respect that it doesn't really matter.

I think it's more of the Quality of player that we've been going after in FA. Capers to me, seemed like he was taking chances, and gambling in FA, and the Draft, where now, it looks like we are going after more proven players.

This, IMHO is the biggest Casserly problem. Yeah, he is a coaches GM, but he makes the deals. We aren't in cap hell, but some of our positions limit what we can & can't do. Yeah, it takes $$ to get the big name players to Houston, at least that's what we thought before this year. He's bringing in ProBowlers, for fair value....... maybe a little rich, but nothing like he's done in the past.

Buchanon, is in the same boat as Wade. He is on this team for at least another year, till his cap hit comes down. He'll get every opportunity to start, and prove that he can earn his money.

Buchanon's cap number is somewhere in the 800k range, with around $6,000 of that counting as bonus money...We could cut him and only have to eat $6,000...

A trade deal has to be worked out first with Buffalo. What if there asking price is just too high?

They have no leverage. We could offer them nothing and they will still have to cut him.

I think we'll get him for a 5th round pick.
