Texans showing interest in ILB Joe Mays (UPDATE) signed
 
Most will remember him as the dude who jacked Schaub up. He'd make for an interesting battle for the spot next to Cush, no? Would he be a fit in our 3-4?

Quote:

Mays, who was a starter when healthy for most of the last two years and expected to start at middle linebacker this year, was instead released at the start of training camp.

Last season Mays was a starter to open the season, but he was suspended for one game for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, then was lost for the season with a broken leg.

I would definitely see what his price tag would be. Dude can really thump the ball carrier, and would only need to be a 2down run-stuffer in our system.

I'd be all over that. He'd be great next to Cushing.

And he help bring even more nasty to this defense. Please bring this guy in. (assuming he wasn't cut for anything crazy)

I agree he would be a guy I'd look at and see if he's healthy. If he is then he would be our 2nd best ILB. I'm not quite sure what his injury situation is though after missing time at the end of the year.

We should at least sign him long enough to get back that piece of Schaub's ear.

This^^^^^

Hell, he'd be great without being next to Cushing. He sustained what at first was thought to be an "ankle fracture" last October. However, it ended up being a distal fibula fracture, just above the level of the ankle joint. He had it surgically repaired and should be able to return to pre-injury level this season.

Would he need to repay the debt by working it off, like washing jocks and scrubbing toilets? Or do you think he's actually in possession of the missing piece and can return it...?

If we can get him & Sharpton under 1 roster spot, I'm all for it.

The Bills just cut Mark Anderson. Dunno how he'd work as an OLB though

I would be very hesitant to bring him on under any circumstances. Anderson underwent surgeries on both of his knees by the time he left Alabama for the NFL. Last October, he underwent a left knee surgery which was to keep him out no more than 3-4 weeks (that elusive "minor" surgery). He had a "setback" which required return to surgery in November, and from information I have underwent another surgery for complications since then. In all, he missed the last 12 games of the season. The Bills probably had good reason to eat over $4.5 million in dead money.

Gotcha. I was kind of hesitant to begin with, but I'd definitely pass now after hearing that. I'm just soo friggin skeptical with the way our LB corps currently stands. IMO, all 4 spots have question marks. 3 if Cush shows well in camp and preseason.

I share your concerns....including that for Cushing.

That's hilarious. They signed both Mark Anderson and Mario Williams in the same off-season. They overpaid for both.

Would Schaub be ok with him as a teammate? I think if he apologizes, Schaub should hear him out.

Methinks any apologies at this late date would fall on deaf ears.

I have Mays ranked as the 3rd best available MLB/ILB.

Former #Broncos MLB/ILB Joe Mays could have a new team soon. He's received interest from over 6 teams which run 3-4/4-3.

The Texans have sincere interest in ILB Joe Mays. Realistic chance that they make him an offer over next 24 hours, per source.
Recently cut by the Broncos. You guys may remember he's the guy who caused Schaub to lose a piece of his ear in the Broncos/Texans game last year.

This would be a great signing IMO. But I think he may have injuries problems....
