I hope he goes to the Patriots...


I don't think the Texans should focus on big name free agents like this...Not at skill positions...

If we can afford him, get him. I suspect he is a good leader in the locker room, plus, Houston and New Orleans are not too far away.

Saints don't need him after the recievers they had in the playoffs.

Sad day.

Hopefully he tests his value on the open market and doesn't get the guaranteed money he thought he would and returns to N.O. on a new (reduced) contract.

Doubtful, but hey.

Horn was really liked by the people of New Orleans ... he did a lot for the Katrina victims .

I think this would be too much like the Moulds signing for us to do it. An aging receiver how is loosing his speed...we just had one of those and let him go.

Exactly. I think we are only going to be looking at young players now after cutting Eric Moulds with the only reasonable reason being his age. I expect to see us take a hard look at Kevin Curtis.

Weren't you high on clements? Skill position.

*shrugs* either way he'll prolly be starting somewhere next year. I wouldn't mind getting him for a decent contract.

Agree. He's been on that team through ups and downs, and right at the best moment...they let him go.

I'd hope he'd retire with you guys, and for your sake I hope he can re-sign.

Moulds V2.0.

Same deal, different name. Apart from the celebrations perhaps, but that assumes TD's being scored... is that a stretch.

Wherever they go, I am concerned because for the first time last season, the Texans had a credible #2 receiver, somebody the other team has to be concerned about. I don't care who the name is, but I think AJ's performance will be more solid if the Texans can bring in somebody like Horn who demands coverage.

Just heard the Saints released him, he's been to probowl before, you think since we released Moulds, we would be interested in him? Of course, what receiver would want to come to Houston knowing they'll never get the ball (as long as Carr is behind center)

If the FO was smart, they would sign a FA QB (namely Plummer but too late now) before anybody so that we look like a more attractive team to play for.

Here comes Quinn! (Assuming he falls like projected)

Totally classless move. Horn did a lot for the organization in their time of need.

Payton wanted him gone.
