it looks like the Texans are possible front runners in looking to pickup DT Sam Adams who got released by the Bengals. I have always liked this guy even when he was an Aggie. He is old and due to other team's interest, he won't be cheap...but I think we could really help ourselves. If memory serves me, he played in the 3-4 a lot early in his career but to have a 4 deep DT squad of Okoye, Adams, TJ, Maddox would be really nice. He could really help stop the run in the middle and allow Okoye to focus on penetration.

I completely endorse getting Sam Adams as long as we don't overpay. What do we have to lose?

we have another problem, only so many roster spots, carrying 4 DT is a bit much, it would take away from something else we are not so deep at. IMHO


Edit : actuallly that would be 5 DT's definately overkill

right, but how many will make it out of training camp and the preseason?


i wouldn't mind this signing too much even though he's in his 14th season... seems like our defense is going to be fun to watch this season.

you're assuming we're keeping TJ..:pirate:

a 4 dt rotation is ok.. especially when you have guys who can be involved in GL defences- plus we dont know how much zgonina has left in him (like adams) so bringing him in to battle for 1 of those 4 spots wouldn't hurt imo

On one hand I'm all for picking up Adams and shopping or cutting TJ. I would rather have a vet that knows what he's doing than and guy that doesn't care about being an NFL player.

On the other, do you want to sign a 14 year veteran? Isn't that a bit too old?

Adams would be the space eater at DT that we have missed just as much as a left tackle. Who cares if he's old? As long as he is fat and can still occupy blockers, he will be fine. Amobi is the playmaking DT. Could be like the Williams combo for the Vikings

I'd love the signing. I don't think I could think select a better mentor for Okoye at this point in the FA period and that's where the 14 years come in play. Okoye is too young and Adams is too old. I'd call that some serious counterbalancing by the Houston Texans and it's a move I'd love.

Will it happen? I seriously doubt it. We don't have the money. Just because we're agressively pursuing this fellow doesn't mean it's a given. Also, I'd really hope the Texans would wait a mite bit longer and see who becomes available this Friday (June 1st cuts) before committing a chunk of the cap towards Adams. I'm still hoping for a prime free safety to be released come Friday.

I read this article again and I don't see where it states that we're the front runners? All I got out of it was that he's tentatively scheduled to meet with the Houston Texans. Maybe you have another source that pinpoints where you're getting your information from? I'd love to read up on that.

I also read a little futher and noticed that Adams is primarily a two gap defender and Okoye is a three gap defender. I mentioned in a post earlier today that I'd love this signing and would only see it as to be extremely beneficial to Okoye. I just may have been incorrect on thinking that. With that in mind, would any of you 'gurus' elaborate on this? Would a two gap defender be a good mentor for a rising young three gap defender?

I'm not an expert on this, but I think what you mean is Okoye plays the 3 technique, and is a one gap player. Basically, as I understand it, the "technique" signifies the where, and gap signifies the responsibility. Adams would be covering 2 gaps, ie a Gary Walker space eating type. He would probably be a 1 technique?? But not at all sure on that one. I believe the techniques start at zero over the center, and work out from there. Okoye is going to be a one gap penetrator vs the 2 gap space eater.

Anyway, regardless, this would be a great signing if he still has something in the tank. He would be a perfect fit inside on running downs, and will free up our playmakers at DL and LB to make plays. He would really improve our run defense. On passing downs, I assume he would come out and either TJ, Maddox, or whomever, would come in. I hope it works out. :d:

Yes sir, that's exactly what I mean. I understand how the techniques work thanks to a previous thread on this board which just explained it perfectly well. I just had the terminology wrong. My apologies on that. I'll try to research my posts to show a little better grasp on linguistics. Bear with me for the time being.

So basically, what you're saying is that because of the differences in where they would be lining up against the offensive line, this translates into Adams not being the most perfect mentor for Okoye since he plays the three technique.

If that's true then this doesn't necessarily discourage me from wanting Adams on the Houston Texans. It just means that I may not want the Texans to pursue him as agressively by throwing him more money.

Adams wants to play football. That was clear from the ESPN article posted here. We have a logjam. Maybe our options at depth aren't the best but we still have a logjam regardless. Because of that, we may not be his ideal football destination.

you guys aint right :)

first off Samuel Adams is not a great brew, well you have to be specific since they offer dozens of examples but for now I'm going to assume the widely available Boston Lager from your neighborhood ice house. hey they almost sucked me into their little competition, but as the fine print read "if you win the recipe is ours" no thanks.

anyway Sam Adams is not a fit (no I did not say he was unfit just that he is not a good fit for the 4-3 more of a 3-4 NT I think alot of you are having Capers flash backs). the Texans probably had their best draft/undrafted rookie class ever coming into training camp, for the first time ever we have both depth & talent, no need to occupy a valueable roster spot with someone not part of future going forward.

give me a glass of water instead :cool:

ps: as I write this my Russian Imperial Stout is the real run stopper :cowboy1: :shots:

Adams is a 1 technique runstuffer that would play NEXT to Travis Johnson, he wouldnt replace him. He would spell Zigonia or however you spell his name or Maddox. Dont forget we also still have Thomas Johnson. Travis Johnson is in the rotation with Okoye, if we get rid of TJ wich I doubt, We would need another 3 technique not a 1 tech runstuffer.

You are correct, but I could see the Texans experimenting with moving Travis Johnson to the 1 technique position during training camp.

I dont care if Sam Adams is a run stuffing DT. He can still help mentor Okoye and here's why:

1) He's a 3 time pro bowler. Surely he knows some tricks that could help Okoye.

2) He was a big reason that SB Ravens defense was one of the best ever.

3) He has 14 years NFL/Playoff/Super Bowl experience. Maybe he learned something?

Plus, he doesn't just help Amobe, he helps out our linebackers by occupying blockers. DeMeco becomes Ray Lewis hopefully!!!

Thats a great post.

You dont have to play the same tech. or even position to mentor someone. This guy would occupy TWO OL. Meaning the numbers would be stacked on our side now. He's no spring chicken anymore, so we're not going to get 30 snaps out of him. Get him at a good price and maximize his talents on and off the field. I'm sure he's seen it all.

I worry about the Texans some against the run, and if Sam can play, he'd be interesting to see in a Texans uni. It will be interesting if they can make this make sense.

From Sam's perspective, he has the benefit to coming back to his home town. For someone who has moved around a lot, it might be nice to have tha familiarity. No state income tax helps too.

That has inspired me to form a weight loss program for Travis Johnson. Just have Sam Adams follow him everywhere he goes, and TJ will be lucky if he can assemble a few scraps during each meal as Adams tears through the food. Think of it as portion reduction, and maybe even some exercise if they have to compete for it.

That's the question. Buffalo released him after the '05 season because they thought Adams was through. Cincy did the same after last season. Neither of those teams are teeming with quality DTs. But, the Texans don't have a jumbo-sized DT like Adams, and it makes sense that DL coach Franklin would want him.

but do you really sign a guy that has like 30 tackles in the last 2 years and no sacks and take up a roster spot for locker room presence? I thought that was what Zgonina was for? I dont like the idea personally. they are both so similar, I just dont think we need 2 guys that have the same talent(minimal) and fill the same role.

I'd rather have them sign a veteran DE that can show mario and okoye some pass rush expertise.

Regarding your assertion that the Texans need a veteran DE, I think Kalu fills that role. And if Adams can't play, he shouldn't get a roster spot for what he does in the locker room. But, maybe guys like Amobi & TJ could pickup something from Big Sam in training camp. I don't see a problem with signing Adams and finding out in camp if he has anything left.

Exactly, just because you sign the does not mean he will stay on the roster all the way through camp. I am sure the Texans coaching staff will be honest and upfront about every position, like they have been all along.

"This is where I grew up and to be able to play at home with my family is a great opportunity," Adams said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports.

We asked Adams what it would take for him to join the Texans.

Adams laughed and said, "Momma's home cooking is here hoss. I'd love to be here. I wouldn't have gotten on a plane if I didn't want to come home.

"I have a lot left in the tank and we have to prove that this year on the field.(I had a) couple of injuries the last couple of years. I need to get back on the field and get back into the Pro Bowl. I went to Cincinnati, didn't do what I felt that I should have been able to do. It was my fault. I was hurt; needed to have surgery and I really feel like I have a lot to prove. People think that I am old and I don't really want to play. I'm pretty upset about it and I really would like to get on the field and show people what a dominant tackle is in this league, " Adams said.

Kubiak's take on the situation:

"When we have a chance to look at some guys that can better our football team we are going to do that. Sam is coming in here. There are no guarantees. He's got a history in this town. He grew up in this town. Mike Sherman and I know him very well from his A and M days. We want to talk to him and see where he is at as a player and as a person. We will make sure things are a fit for our team before we do anything," said Texans head coach Gary Kubiak.

Here are the two tidbits I took out of the article:

Adams met with the Texans Wednesday and will do so again Thursday.

Adams has a number of other options. He met with the Rams last week and will meet soon with the Titans. The Patriots and Broncos have also expressed interest.

If he is meeting again with them today, there must be some interest from both sides. I say let's lock him up now, and don't let him go to the flaming meatballs.

The only worry I have is some of the rhetoric he is using, saying he needs to get back to pro-bowl form. It's good if he truly thinks that he can get back to that level of play, but I think a rational analysis will show that is nearly impossible. I am worried that if he thinks that much of himself, he will ask for more than he is worth, and the Texans will either pass, or we will sign him for more than we should. Time will tell, but I am excited about the potential of having a guy of his calibur, even at his age. He might have 1-2 more good years in him as a run stopper playing 15-20 plays a game to keep him fresh.

There is no point in paying anything other than vet minimum for a DLmen who can't play more than 15-20 plays a game.


Well, that is my analysis, but the Texans may feel differently. And besides that, it's more than the number of plays, it's the impact he can have for those plays.

How many plays was Devin Hester involved in each game for the Bears? 6 to 8 maybe? Seems to me he had a pretty big impact.

I would rather have a run stopping beast in there for 15 plays moreso than an average player playing 40 snaps. I'm more interested in the how good more so than the how many.

I also found this little nugget on fox26.

The Texans are looking for veteran free agents who may fill a specific need. The Texans are also interested in veteran free agent receiver Keenan McCardell. :texflag:

Hmm... I guess its worth the competition for #2. He did have 70 catches 2 years ago. Who knows if anything is left in the tank.

Are we going out of our way to talk to Houston natives? (McCardell is a Waltrip grad. GO RAMS!!!!)

No doubt, but that was why I specified DLmen. IMO it isn't worth having the guy unless he can play the majority of defensive snaps or about 35-45 plays a game.

Ok, fair enough. That is a valid position. I just happen to disagree with it. I think for a young fella, I would tend to agree. But getting a guy of Adam's calibur both on the field and in the locker room, is worth having even if he doesn't play most snaps.

I wouldn't mind bringing Adams in if it won't cost too much, much like Sam Cowart last offseason. Bring him in to camp, see what he has left, let him help the younger guys along, and see if he makes the cut. I think if we were willing to bring in Zgonina we might as well try to get Adams in camp to see what he can do, if we can get him at a reasonable rate with a low signing bonus. If he doesn't make it, then like Cowart, he's gone.

According to Fox 26 tonight, Adams will not be signing here in Houston. They said things just didn't work out.
