I wonder if Farve is available? And what about Reggie White? Oh right, he is dead. There has to be at least a few more Broncos and Packers retreads that are available and breathing.

Just what we need. Let's build the team around an over-priced never will be QB, and surround him with a bunch of old castoffs or never has beens from the Broncos and Packers.

OK whiners. If we can get Lelie as WR2 and Green to help w/ the running game, it opens up the draft for us to get O-Line and perhaps a CB or FS. Are either Lelie or Green the key to a championship? Nope, but that O-line and decent secondary go a long way towards helping us out. Green's over a year out of ligament surgery and should be good for a year or two. I wouldn't be opposed to him, although I'd rather have Lynch.

AHMAN TO DENVER?

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that free-agent running back Ahman Green will visit the Denver Broncos.

Green, 30, was originally drafted by the Seahawks in 1998. He was traded to the Packers after two seasons, and has been the starter in Green Bay ever since.

He hit the market a year ago, but took a one-year deal to stay with the Packers due in large part to his ongoing rehab from a serious leg injury. He rushed for 1,059 yards in 14 games last season.

Maybe Schefter got Houston and Denver mixed up? I could see that.

Wow, some news that doesnt in some way involve a QB that will remain nameless. I think Ahman Green would be a great signing as long as we don't overpay. Load the deal with some incentives where he can earn good money but keep his base and signing low. FWIW, I think A.Green is a more sure thing than Lynch. I just don't see Lynch as being worth the #8 pick. If we trade down to #15 or later maybe if he is the BPA. My only problem with Green is the fumbling. We got enough of that here already....

The 610 morning show called this a few days ago. They were actually talking about it this morning and I agree with their sentiment; sign Green to a short and cheap contract (1-2 years) and look at picking up a RB in next year's draft which will be much deeper (McFadden, Slayton, Rice.)

Exactly, after all "backs are a dime a dozen". They are like commodites. Just plug'em in, and watch 'em run.
Now we can use our Draft picks on places like the the OLine and secondary, as you suggested.

I don't understand some of the negativity about the players the Texans are interested in. Did you really expect top flight free agents like Adalius Thomas or Nate Clements to be Texans? Really??? Guys like Ahman Green, Ashlie Lelie, and Carlisle might not be star players but we have needs at those positions and if the price is right we should sign them. My way of thinking is: Beggars can't be choosers.

No surprise here. I've been saying this since the season ended. Sherman is our OC. Sherman culled an underwhelming performer (in Green) from Seattle to GB, where he played well. No suprise that the Sherman would want to bring in some of his "boys," especially one of his personal favs. Green still has some miles in him.

Well, he fits the bill of just about every other FA this franchise has ever signed.

Past his prime - CHECK
Wants to be overpaid - CHECK
Limited impact for future - CHECK

Not to be a pessimist, but I just really don't see how an aging injury prone RB for 2 years will help us that much.

Same can be said for Jeff Garcia (minus the injury prone).

We are going after the WRONG type of players. We should be doing like Buffalo is doing. They signed THREE offensive lineman today. Granted we couldn't afford Steinbach, but at this point any OL will help tremendously...

Everyone sure does ***** a lot for bringing in an 1000 yard rusher last year. I'm not saying it is ideal....but you can't expect us to push for Clinton Portis and throw away our very few valuable assets or somehow create an RB you steal in the 7th round and then bump up all his stats like in Madden. We aren't a place players want to sign with, we don't have any depth to trade with, all we can do is draft and take ideal risks to build our team at this point. Until we do have depth to trade with and a prestige to show players. Buckle up for overpays and risks such as Green until we make the playoffs.

I mean still though...Ahman Green was a top 5 RB for 3 years until he got injured....he came back....and promptly put up an 1000 yard season. What on this team makes you think we don't need a guy who can do that. He is 30....so was Stephen Davis and Corey Dillon when they were leading their teams places. Shawn Alexander?....30 when the season starts. Tiki Barber?....32 when the season starts. Edgerrin James?....29 when the season starts. Fred Taylor....31. Ricky Williams....30 when season starts.

In other words some people need to pull their heads out and realize you can't get the BPA at your spot of need everytime. I'll take a 1000 yard rusher in 14 games ay day of the week before I'll go into the season with two guys who barely combined for that. And yes....another guy with promise, but who really only had one good game against a pathetic team.

What people smell are short term bandaids and mediocrity. Here are the four guys that they are rummored to be interested in. Green is a 30 year running back (will need another in two year at most); Garcia is a 37 year old QB will need another in 2 year), Carisle an average 30 year OG ( good chance to need another in two or three years) and Lelei ( has had 1 dynamic year in 5 or so)...Even if you sign lesser names, seems to me it would be more productive to get guys who realistically could be there in two years versus most likely not. In short two years from now we still have a high chance of still being beggars.

Well, we could spend $80 million on Nate Clements or $50 million on a Guard like (Steinbach)... this market is awful for teams- everyone is overpaying for everything because of the increased cap number and the lack of top tier free agents. What we need are draft picks.

Depends on if we can have more drafts like last season. Or, at least, closer to last season than to the past. The first crucial piece of this plan was set into motion when they ditched Casserly, so we will see if it works out.

No doubt about it, we are gonna have to get ourselves out of this hole thru the college Draft, not FA.

But FA is a big part of it, and it's going to get us to a winning season, while we build our team.

It doesn't make sense to go from one year to the next, expecting a losing season, and being happy with 7-9.

As long as we don't pay too much money for these guys...... we're good.

Ahman don't want to sign a one year deal?? that's fine... if Kubes & Smith don't want to tie up money in the 30 year old RB..... they won't, and we won't be dealing with the crap we are dealing with now.

If they feel like he's ready to bust out, and get back to his old self..... If they think he can help us win for the next two years, or the next three years... then they'll do it with a contract that makes sense to us.

Same with Garcia... by signing Garcia, we can forget about the QB position. No, He's not going to take us to the SUperBowl, but he also won't do anything stupid, and he won't hamstring our offense. If there is an open reciever, he's going to find him. If anybody could make a play from the QB position, he will.

Garcia is the kind of QB, and Jake is as well, that you can say, "if he can't succeed behind our line, then nobody can" we've seen them do it. time & time again. NOt everytime, but plenty of times.

I can't recall ever seeing David break a tackle to make a play, or avoid a sack & throw the ball down field. I've seen him escape the pocket & run for a few yards(like Michael Vick), But I've never seen him buy time & make a play with that big arm of his.

Designed bootlegs?? yeah, I've seen those. Good(sometimes great) Play action?? Yeah, I've seen those.

But DAvid Adlibing?? Making his own plays?? Creating under pressure?? No, we haven't had that dynamic from the QB position in Houston for a long, long time.

Again, if the numbers don't work out in our favor, Garcia won't be here... neither will Jake. Smith & Kubes aren't going to sell their souls, or fleece our cap room to win.... I'm pretty sure about that.

AHMAN DRAWING INTEREST

A year after he got no takers as an unrestricted free agent, running back Ahman Green has options this time around.

Teams already believed to be interested in the veteran tailback include the Broncos, Texans, and Raiders. He already has visited the Broncos.

Green reportedly wants a long-term deal worth more than $5 million a year, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

I'd like to have him, but more than $5 million a year?!?

I'd rather bring in a couple of guys that are on the downsides of their careers for a year or two and draft someone to take over than to overpay for a top-tier free agent that won't perform up to the contract. I'm sure there are players out there that have been signed as FAs and gone on to become solid or even great. Usually, though, they aren't worth the big bucks. The Texans had one of the best drafts in the NFL in the past few years last year. I think they will continue that trend this year and that is how to build a winning team.

During a recent interview on Sirius NFL Radio, Packers RB Ahman Green was asked about some teams that will likely be in the market for a running back of his caliber and whether or not he thought they were a good match for him. He agreed that four of them - Denver, Houston, the New York Giants and the New York Jets - were places he could see himself playing next year.

Keep in mind, this was almost a month ago, but I still find it interesting we were in his final 4 weeks ago. Please Green, sign with us!

Question...if we got Green, and lets say at 8, Mr. Peterson is there...you take him?

Yes. Ahman Green isn't coming here to be the longterm solution at the running back position.

After reading the front page article on the site, its between Denver and us. Hopefully we showed him enough and treated him better than Denver so all it is now is a numbers game. Also, like Steel Blue said, Green is here for only afew years. Peterson and him would make an amazing tandem. If we sign Green, he gives us more versatility at the #8 pick and doesn't make us have to worry about getting Peterson as much.

If you want Green and AP, what about CT and Dayne?! I say pass on Green and IF AP's available take him, Imean unless Green's asking a low salary which would be awesome too.

What do you mean what about CT and Dayne?! May the best man win!! We need the most talent playing at every position, we don't need to hold on to Dayne and CT because we like them. Dayne is a FA, Green and Peterson would both be a HUGE improvement. As for CT and Lundy, let them battle it out.

in a way it seems like he likes it a lot more here than denver. he thinks we are close to being a respectible nfl team. I think he has made up his mind and i think its gonna be here for some reason i got that feeling. It was funny how mcnair sent his private plane and the broncos owner sent a commercial airline.

Denver is also bringing in Travis Henry really soon, so maybe Ahman is out of their picture and his only choice left is us?!?

if we are his only choice i'm fine with that. i mean even if we are his only choice he said he still liked it here so it won't be too bad. I know people dogg him a lot but i would like him to be here.

I like his attitude on not letting his QB get sacked.

That was a good interview. Sounds like he wants to play here, if he wanted to play in Denver then he would have canceled the Houston trip. Instead he comes to Houston and cancels the rest of his trips.

Like I had said before on a couple other threads, Green, even being hurt for part of the season, still out rushed our two starters combined.

Just hope he can stay healthy for us.

I also hope this year when I pick him up in FF he won't suck for me like last year.

The chronicle say he signed a four year deal!

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4601378.html

Seems like a long deal for a guy with the milegae Green has. I know he is ponly 30 but he has been used quite a bit and had a big injury a few years ago.

(on if the quarterback situation in Houston and if he can be ‘the guy’ to carry the offense) “I wouldn’t say ‘the guy,’ but I am definitely a guy that will, if I become a Texan, be part of the mix, because I’ve been watching the Texans since the inception of the whole organization, and being a football fan—not just a player, but for a fan—I know with David (Carr) being the quarterback, he has done his best. He has gone out there and thrown the ball, and as a running back, when you’re watching SportsCenter and it says ‘David Carr has been sacked 100 times in a season’ or some crazy number, I’d have a heart attack. I don’t care if it’s (Green Bay QB) Brett (Favre) or a seventh-round draft pick quarterback in the backfield, it it’s up to me, my quarterback is not getting touched. As a running back, you take it personal. I just feel like now that I have the opportunity where I got to come down here and visit, and if I become a Texan, that’s going to be one of my priorities outside of running the ball and scoring points and making yards, it’s to protect David or whoever is back there throwing the ball. I’ll put it like this: I’m going to be his Kevlar back there stopping the blitz.”

I think we paid a bit much, but meh. WE HAVE A HB! YAY!!! :doot:
