I glanced over the list of free agents that would fill an area of need for Houston and in my opinion it seams like slim pickings. Haynesworth looks good, but Houston is probably not willing to pay him. The safety from the eagles also looks tempting. Other than Darren Sproles no player on the tailback list jumped out at me.

Anyone else I have overlooked.

How about Karlos Dansby OLB from Arizona-UFA. He's 6'04", 250lbs., and 27yoa. He'd definetly fill a need at SLB.

Look for Dansby to end up in Miami. Parcells loves him and the feeling is mutual with Dansby. He would look great in a Texan uniform though.

There are only really 3 Free Agents I'd really like to see the Texans go after, even though I don't see them getting ANY of them.

Nnamdi Asomugha - CB, Raiders
Julius Peppers - DE, Panthers
O.J. Atogwe - FS, Rams

Of course there are some other guys who look interesting in Free Agency, but that is easily my Top 3.

A few players were released today. I reckon there will be more to come in the near future.


The National Football Post reports that the Browns have released QB Ken Dorsey, LB Antwan Peek, and CB Terry Cousin.

Lions released TE Dan Campbell, OL Jon Dunn, and G Edwin Mulitalo, CB Leigh Bodden, S Dwight Smith.

Giants released CB Sam Madison, RB Reuben Droughns, and S Sammy Knight.

Dwight Smith would be a solid pickup at the bargain bin. Solid FS who can play CB in a pinch and a good insurance policy in the DB rotation if any of the starters get injured.

I would say that Dan Campbell would be a good pick up. He has some skills. Depth at TE has always been kind of low, I don't think we will want to keep Bruener and I don't believe Dreesen is that great of a backup either.

I would like for us to go after a guy like Aaron Stecker, Deshaun Foster, or even Dominic Rhodes because even though they are small they do know how to grind out yards.

Yahoo! Sports is reporting the Broncos released Anthony Aldridge. This is one of those times we benefit from a Denver reject; Aldridge, and keep in mind I have a bias against UH, was really good for the Broncos in the preseason, but was unfortunately injured and out for the year. He's not the bruiser we need, but I see him as a definite upgrade over Moats if we can keep him on the PS a year or two

El Tejano

Dreesen is good, better than Dan Campbell.

Let me rephrase that. Since Dreesen is good but not that great to give us a reason not to look for more depth, and Bruener probably will not be signed again, the Texans should look for another back up and Dan Campbell is pretty decent. Low risk kind of guy who can make plays.

first, my thoughts on Bush are well established on these boards. I'm far from a blind Bush homer and have expressed my reservations about his health and disappointment in his performance when it comes to consistency. So I'm not going to recap them here because....

second, this is a thread about people who are released. Bush has not been. Deuce has. I'm not going to disrespect Deuce by dragging Bush into an argument that has nothing to do with him and is only here because....

third, there are Texan fans who turn any possible Saints-related or Mario-related or Slaton-related or VY-related thread into a Bush bashing thread. if that's what you'd like to do then there are countless threads you can bump and pile on.

This isn't that thread.

So I won't indulge your non-sequitur because I don't want this thread to get derailed.

Deuce is a Saints legend and lots of hearts are breaking today.

Including mine.

Watching him work hard for a team - never quitting - was something my Dad compared him to Earl Campbell. He wasn't saying that the two were comparable runners - Earl is, imo, in a class with only a handful of NFL RBs. Rather, he meant a RB that embodied a city, a franchise, and a work ethic that will be hard to match.

First I never said YOU were a Reggie homer or anything like that. Thats how YOU took it.

I was responding to what Wolverinefan was insinuating about the state of your running back corps WITHOUT Duece. Him or I should not have to point out how the running back situation looks without Duece and who is pretty much in line to carry the load one way or another. I don't think either of us saw the release coming and beg your pardon for us putting our curiousity out there as to the future of the RB corps without their top RB.

Perhaps after stating his salary vs role vs Deuce being the running game you said that quote. Perhaps just a miscommunication. Deuce being released reminds me of Domanick Davis/Williams and how Texans fan felt/feel.

Supposedly the Panthers are very close to a deal with Jordan Gross.

According to sources, the Panthers and Gross’s representatives are close to finalizing a frontloaded, six-year agreement with Gross that would pay him $30.5 million over the first three years of the deal – the biggest three-year payout ever to an offensive lineman.

Provided that deal gets completed, the Panthers are expected to put their franchise tag on defensive end Julius Peppers later today.

Who here is interested in a young starting safety? From Schefter's blog:

Combine, News
Newsome: Ravens’ Leonhard likely moving on
Posted: February 21st, 2009 | Jason Feller | Tags: Baltimore Ravens, Jim Leonhard, Ozzie Newsome

Safety Jim Leonhard made a name for himself with an outstanding playoff performance, but that might not be enough to keep him in Baltimore.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome indicated Leonhard could be headed elsewhere this offseason.

“He has to look at if he comes back, he’s competing for a starting job. If he goes to one of these 31 other teams, then he will probably go in and be a starter and everyone wants to play,” said Newsome.

“I understand Jimmy probably wants to go somewhere else.”

The free agent to be was a revelation during his fourth season. He started 13 games and established career highs with 69 tackles and six passes defensed.

In the postseason, Leonhard was at his best, putting up spectacular numbers. He had 16 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and a 0.5 sack in three playoff games.

He was also a valuable punt returner and special teams performer.

I found it pretty funny Richard Smith was baffled by that concept.

Yeah, when a saftey isn't just sitting deep in the secondary and is actually running up front...side to side...deep...Smith's head probably blew up.

Wasnt Gibbs the Chiefs DB coach? Maybe we'll see Surtain look here. He seems a litlte washed up, but veteran leadership at CB is something this team has a need for.

It's simply amazing how much money you can make just by being fast.

Hall has been the most overrated corner in the league ever since he got here and yet people still keep paying him to give up TD's and sit on the bench.

Taylor is a fringe player who couldn't stay healthy in Houston. The Pats could give him a look at fullback -- where Taylor practiced briefly with the Texans -- but he almost certainly isn't going to make the final 53.

OL Trevor Canfield was released by the Cardinals. I was crazy-high on him leading up to the draft, but of course that means nothing. He's got a real nasty demeanor, and he's a perfect ZBS lineman.

Then again, there's a reason he was picked in the 7th round, and a reason he was released.

Still - I'd love to see him in a Texans uniform, depending on who we'd have to cut to land him.

I'd give him a tryout, he'd could probably beat out Studdard. I was very high on this guy as well and he's got a perfect size for the ZBS, listed as 6'05" and 307 lbs. and could add another 10-15 lbs. easily. He probably wasn't big enough for Arizonas man blocking scheme.

Cook is a rookie SS out of South Carolina that was very highly thought of prior to the draft and was cut by the Jets today, has to be better than Barber.

Freeman is a rookie OLB from Ohio St. and was also very highly thought of prior to the draft and was cut by Chicago today, he'd be great as a backup SLB. Bigger and younger than Davis.

Canfield is a rookie G out of Cinncinati that was very highly thought of and would be a perfect fit in a ZBS scheme. He's 6'05" and 307 lbs. and was cut by Arizona, probably to small to play their man scheme but could be perfect for the ZBS and could easily add 10-15 lbs.. He could replace Brisiel or Studdard.

All three of these guys were on many members mock drafts a few months ago and I think the Texans should give each a tryout and serious consideration. They've all got skill and would come cheap.

I don't know about suspension, but he had character issues before the draft. He was suspended in 2008 for allegedly hitting a man with a glass but the charges were dropped.
