So in summary, I think Wade Smith and Walters are gone. If the Texans are desperate, they may cut Daniels too.
Antonio Smith, Walter, and Wade Smith could get cut, but are just as or more likely to have their contracts extended or renegotiated. Wade Smith does not have a certain replacement. Neither does Antonio. Walter should see a replacement in free agency or the draft. But, he could accept another pay cut and remain. Daniels contract could easily be adjusted to free cap room. I don't see the cuts and free agent losses that were prevalent in the 2012 offseason.
