as of now the vikes are being the most aggressive in the udfa market...i would think with the few picks we had that we would be more aggressive in the fa market than in previous years...wouldn't mind munoz, browner, butler, brimmer, lawerence, and anyone else just to give more competition to all spots in training camp...i think we have like 11 spots open...lets signed 11 guys

Right now, Wilkerson, Carter, and Clement are being reviewed by Miami. For a little while tonight, it seemed as if Clement was the front runner for Miami, but I think he might get a shot to get an invite to the Texans camp instead.

If Clement goes anywhere, the 4 most likely destinations are Houston, Pittsburgh, Detroit, or Miami

I think Vince Carter would be a good pick. He was a great player in college and Peterson wouldn't have had the year he did without a good line. I don't see why we wouldn't make a bid at him since it would be a low cost, low risk gamble. I also like Shazor, our only weakness in the secondary now is ss and he could at the very least push the other guys into better performances.

D-ReK
04-25-2005, 02:36 AM
If we signed Shazor, it wouldn't be to play SS...We're trying to add speed to the D, and he just doesn't have it...

scourge
04-25-2005, 02:41 AM
I wonder why no one has picked up Brandon Browner... He seems like a prime canidate for a FS project. Maybe we could pick him up to back up Coleman. We could use the depth.

cadahnic
04-25-2005, 04:25 AM
Browner, Wilkerson, Shazor, Munoz, Brimmer, and Jonathan Clinkscale would be the guys that I would be going after like their was no tomorrow. I think all of them have a better chance of making our team over Pettway, Anderson and some of the other guys who are lower on the totem poll. Shazor and Browner are very interesting prospects since each is a NE versatile type player. Shazor could play ILB and inject some speed into the posistion and Browner can play the FS and CB if neccessary which would make Jason Simmons job in jeopardy. Munoz and Wilkerson will likely have decent careers if someone just gives them the chance. Munoz can be very good when he is not injured and Wilkerson would provide depth at the center but mainly the guard posisiton.

El Tejano
04-25-2005, 11:34 AM
Michael Munoz please. He is a very good player as was his dad but that isn't the reason why I would want him on our team. He dominates.

Wow! I didn't know Reyes was still available. Seems like everytime I saw him play he made big plays for Syracuse. Also, Victor Sesay (TE) can be a good player in this league. There are some interesting names on this list. Chris Rix was thought to be a top QB prospect just a few years ago...Should interesting to see who the Texans sign.

Texans | URFA Halterman Signed - from www.KFFL.com
Mon, 25 Apr 2005 07:12:06 -0700

The Houston Texans have signed undrafted rookie free agent TE/LS Aaron Halterman (Indiana).

some info, as well...

NFL | Halterman Pro Day Tidbits - from www.KFFL.com
Fri, 11 Mar 2005 15:08:47 -0800

Gil Brandt, of NFL.com, reports Indiana TE Aaron Halterman (6-4 5/8, 262) was clocked at 4.93 and 4.90 in the 40-yard dash, had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump, 9-foot-2 long jump, 4.25 short shuttle, 11.55 long shuttle, 6.95 three-cone drill and 22 bench press reps.

This kid will make their team and be a very productive NFL RB. He smashed every single RB record in Canadian university football history last year. I know that our university football is not on par with our brothers to the south but this kid still had to run through or around 11 players on the feild. Jesse is a pure athlete who had offers to play division 1 in the states but stayed in Canada because he wanted to stay at RB. Jesse's workout in Toronto was said to have dazzled the nine NFL teams that were present it is said he had about 8-10 offers right after the draft.. The only knock against Jesse is that he played in Canada (kind of like the small school argument) but I think Seattle knows what they got and Jesse will suprise everyone down south.

Quoted from the Rocky Mountain News:

"Sunday night, the Broncos agreed to terms with four rookie free agents. They included Colorado School of Mines quarterback Chad Friehauf, Colorado State tackle Erik Pears, Oregon State cornerback Brandon Browner and Mercer University's Wesley Duke. Duke, a 6-foot-5 tight end, played basketball at Mercer, which doesn't field a football team."

hey.. if he was a long snapper that probably means he has some blocking ability as a TE.

That could be a great 3rd string TE for us. Would take care of our long snapper situation, and give us another blocking TE to work with.

They sure snapped him up quickly. The CIS isnít on par with Division I football, thereís no doubt about that, but Lumsden also played in the East West Shrine game and many thought he was the MVP of the game. The CIS has produced a couple of other players in recent years who have gone straight from it to the NFL, namely Steve Morley in GB and Israel Idonije in Chicago. In the past there has even been a first round NFL pick out of the CIS, Mike Schad. Lumsden will be their fastest RB and heís got good size too. The Texans may never have had a shot at him though as it looks like Seattle was on the phone to him immediately after the draft.

Yeah I heard there were many teams that tried to get him right after the draft. Lucky for Seatle I played against him in high school and the guy is a athlete in any league period.

The tacks will be in good shape cap wise in '06 or maybe '07, the thing that is killing them is the dead money they have to pay this year. The clots however are headed in that direction, with jughead's huge contract, Harrison's big contract, and waiting to see what happens with Edgerrin James, they could be in some serious cap hell as well in a few seasons...

Took me about three double takes and 1 or 2 quadruple takes, but I finally saw it...

Clement will actually know by tommorow morning what team he will be playing for. Due to agent hiring/firing, he will not be able to sign a contract until Saturday the 30th anyway.

It seems as if we are out of the running though for an extremely talented player.

How ofter do UFA really contribute to a team? I mean missing out one or another UFA isn't that big of a deal. Starling is theonly I can think of that evenmade a roster in our history; and he's probably going to have to battle pretty hard to keep his spot.

texansfan88
04-27-2005, 07:01 AM
Hoth Boy, in some sense, most UFA's do not contribute.

The likelihood of a position contributing is normally along the offensive line. Not too many centers and guards get drafted high just b/c its not a real sexy pick. Thats why most guys that have 2nd-3rd round grades slip to 6-7-undrafted. Like Wilkerson and Respert.

Green Bay used to be a master at taking late round/UFA OLine and making them a dangerous unit.

It really depends on the team. Buffalo and Indy are usually end up with a few UFA making their rosters each year. Their GMs are great at finding gems in the UFA pool.

Do you mean UFAs signed after the draft or any UFA? In the latter category are players like Derick Armstrong, Garrick Jones, and Charlie Clemmons in Houston, and Flutie, Garcia, Vanderjagt, Joe Horn, Shelton Quarles, etc. around the league. In the former category around the league are players like Kerry Carter, Israel Idonije, and Brett Romberg, to name a few Iím familiar with, all of whom are considered to be backups with potential.

Players get drafted high for skills that cannot be taught. I did not say they could be improved.
QB: Decision-making, leadership, and size
RB: Speed, vision, and size
WR: Speed, hands, and size

These are just some examples. The main reason an LT gets picked high is that they have long reach, quick hands and feet, and they can block.

Since so many OL are slow and have size issues they are picked later than a 4.23 WR (JM). It is easier to improve the blocking technique of an UDFA OL than it is to improve the speed and hands of an UDFA WR/TE.

Teams fill back up slots and special teams with undrafted free agents. In some cases they could even surprise and become starters eventually. Players like this are an important component of the roster for all teams. You can't have all expensive FA's or draft picks on the roster - there's not enough money to go around.

And they can become very good starters at that. Flutie, Garcia, Vanderjagt, Joe Horn, and Shelton Quarles are all current players who were signed as undrafted FAs who have made the Pro-Bowl. (Check that. I guess Flutie was actually drafted in the 11th round 20 years ago eek: )

Good guess on Pitts.
His mother, LaVerne, was on the basketball and track teams at Cal State Dominguez Hills, while his older brother, Chester, was an offensive lineman at San Diego State (2000-01) and his sister, Julia, will be a freshman on the basketball and track teams at UCLA beginning this fall. His cousin is major league slugger Barry Bonds. Sounds like a family of athletes.

Read up on Lightbody...long list of injuries.

Couldn't find T Brown on WVU Mountaineer roster.

There is an Alfred Malone on Georgia Techs roster none on Troys roster

Maybe the different websites have their info mixed up. We should get Charlies list soon.
