since we resigned jacoby, seems like the texans will stay pat with the wr. group.

therefore, if we cant get another wr. i say we go after michael huff and were done.

I want D. Manning and I want Leach and I want a good punter.

And... honestly... I'm worried about Demeco coming back. I'd like a solid ILB with 3-4 experience... like... maybe... Barnett.

I wouldn't mind another WR but I think we're golden with the UDFAs we picked up. Got some real talent in there.

Manning, ilb depth, resign mark Anderson.

If they did those things I'd be completely satisfied.

I am neutral on signing leach as I really like James Casey in that role.

I'll take D. Manning, Michael Huff, Dawan Landry, Gerald Sensabaugh for the safeties. Then, since our defense will be based on what kind of pressure our front seven can give, I'll take Igor Olshansky, Spears from Dallas. Nothing is wrong with picking up that punter from Pittsburgh. Lastly, I'll take a tall order of Plaxico Burress.

Also, Mark Clayton from St. Louis.
Give me back Leach and Mark Anderson.

All of the above plus Aubrayo Franklin-NT from San Francisco or Brandon Mebane-NT from Seattle. We're still weak in the middle of the D-line and he'd help a bunch.

My dream would be to grab Cullen Jenkins, Brandon Mebane, or Aubrayo Franklin. (Unlikely)

Hopefully some affordable depth at LB (probably not high priced): Stephen Cooper, Kirk Morrison, Manny Lawson (OLB), Matt Roth (OLB)

MUST GRAB A SAFETY: Manning, Huff, Landry, Whitner, Bigby, Sensabaugh.

I'm not a ssensenbaugh fan because he peeks in the backfield too much. He's the king of the double move and that bothers me. I would rather have a 2nd corner/matchup guy like nate clements. This is a 3 db league and sometimes 4. Gb proved to the steelers what happens if you don't have quality cb play. In the division with clark and lewis, clements make more sense to transition to safety. Joseph on 1 corner,allen on the other. Jackson on the slot and clements at safety makes a lot of sense. When clark flexes out, nate can cover him.

Thats exactly what we need imo, let him shore up 1st & 2nd down and have Mitchell as your rusher on passing downs.

Personally, I really hope the resign Leach as their first priority at this point.

There's gotta be something out there at ILB with plenty of experience in the 3-4 that isn't going to cost the world.

How about Barrett Ruud of the Buccs, he had a bad year last year from what I read but that should knock his price down, even if his body is done he can't be bad depth can he?

Or Maybe Barton from the Browns, more of a 2 down run stuffer but would be some good insurance especially given that it allows Cush to possibly move outside if theres any problem there.

Burnett would be great, rudd would be terrible. The texans need to rid themselves of all smalish lbs for the 3-4. I think cush will be ok inside as well as ryans. Outside is where they need some proven players. I disagree about leach and his value kinda went down with weaver being cut. 3m a yrs has to be quantified by his snap count.

For my wish list in no particular order:

Vonta Leach FB: Keep the running game going with a powerful FB.

Brandon Mebane, DT. Powerful run stopper who clogs the middle and has run stopping power. A lighter nimbler NT that has shown ability and is only 26.

Stephen Cooper, ILB, Very fluid athlete with experience playing in the 3-4 ILB position. Would be an excellent depth/spot starter.

Daniel Sepulveda, P, tore his MCL but he tore his non kicking MCL. Getting a boomer for a punter will help our special teams.

Leonard Davis: OG. Mike Brisel is a FA and while he is solid, Davis is better. Davis could start or be a solid backup.

Punters are not worth first round picks. Kickers are not worth first rounders.

Lechler is 34 and should be fine for another 4-5 seasons. Okoye is young and is a solid run defender with passrushing upside and potential. I would trade Okoye for Lechler and a 5th round pick.

Getty ImagesThough the Texans are trying to shore up a defense that was almost bad enough to get everyone fired in 2010, they’ve got a fairly important guy on offense whom they would like to keep.

Fullback Vonta Leach.

They’re trying to re-sign the free agent, but other teams are involved. According to Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston, the Cowboys, Ravens, Broncos, and Giants are in the mix, too.

Leach’s agent, Ralph Vitolo, would name no team beyond the Texans. “There are multiple teams expressing interest in Vonta,” Vitolo told Berman. “We are still hopeful Vonta can return to the Texans, if at all possible.”

The seven-year veteran was a first-time Pro Bowler and a first-time All Pro in 2010, thanks to his efforts to pave the way for tailback Arian Foster, the NFL rushing champion last season.


Love the guy but I hope we do not overpay.

Nick Barnett was released and I'd like to see him in Steel Blue. There are some other good ILBs on the market. Burnett and Cooper from the Chargers (although Cooper is old.) There's also Kirk Morrison... I don't know how he fits in a 3-4, he's more of a thumper, but it would be cool to steal him away from the Jags. :)

Don't know enough about Jenkins to say one way or another. Schaub should know him from their days in Atlanta together. I think I'd prefer Steve Smith, Burress, or maybe James Jones.

I'm worried about DeMeco Ryans coming back from surgery. I don't think he'll be as effective he was in the past. Even before he was injured last season, he wasn't exactly playing his best football. And with the type of injury he suffered it could be a year before he is fully fit. What do we have besides Daryl Sharpton at that spot? Maybe we don't have to get Nick Barnett, but getting another MLB would be an area I would look into unless the Texans are completely comfortable with the current lbs they have.

Agreed!

Maybe we'll have a little advantage since he's an Aggie.

I read in the Texans section of the Rockets mb Clutchfans.net that we still have 9 to 12 mill left. I would love to add one more lower tier corner like Rodgers or Grimes maybe even Clements. Lock up Leach. Then bring in Barnett. He is good insurance for all linebacker spots. If Demeco isn't healthy he can fit right in. If something goes wrong with one of our outside linebackers we can slide Cush outside and let Barnett fill in. I don't think we need any wr we always say we need a number 2 but our offense is always good. Plus i really like the udfa guys Tolliver and Maehl.

I have heard that number thrown out too, but I wonder how much it is going to take to sign our draft picks? with the new system (I know not 9 million but just wondering)

I would have love to seen Sproles come in for us, but he's off the chart now. Honestly give me a good special teams player that will get us more than 5 yard returns on kickoffs, and handle punt returns.

Other than that I would have rather seen JJ not get resigned and us go after someone like Rice/TO/RW, etc, etc.. another big target in the red zone for us. Hopefully Matt this year won't be throwing ducks down the field and we actually will have big plays for touchdowns this year.

Ty is better than any lineman not named mario on the the texans. They should sign him and cut smith imo.

Manning is the guy you're looking for, he's a great KR/PR.

He returned KO's for Hester in 2009 when they moved Hester to WR.

Manning has world class speed. But as a S he has brain farts from time to time. Watch tape of the 2009 Bears vs Texans game. Hopefully V.Joseph can coach this out of him. Manning has the talent.

2010 was a very very good year for Manning. He certainly has been prone to look great on one play and then get torched on the next but apparently last year he put a lot of it together and had a very solid season.

Franklin from the 9ers. Thats it though.

I suspect we'll see some more depth along the DL and LB areas. No more big names though. Just a guess.

Why not try to go the Jets why and trade for Samuel? Wasn`t he also a FS at one point? Perhaps a combination of Okoye, Slaton and a 3d rounder could do the trick... and we`d turn a worst pass defense into a Top5-10 pass defense.

Other than that I´d like to see a DT, some LB depth, some O-Line depth and Leach.

5 minutes ago - by brandon williams - ex-pat de expresses interesting in joining texans
de ty warren, who was released by the patriots, has expressed an interest in playing with either the texans or cowboys, and is willing to play for the veteran's minimum. The nine-year veteran is a native of bryan, texas, which is less than two hours away from houston. Texans rapidreports

For vet minimum or slightly more it would be worth the risk. Add a clause in the contract with a stipulation that he could make more when he is in condition by a certain date.


Also he passed his physical but failed his conditioning test.
