We don't even have enough to franchise Quin & the deadline is tomorrow.
Spotrac has the Texans with a $114,713,930 cap number
(counting the $2.4 million rollover). That would allow enough to franchise Quin (at $6.9 million). But, they shouldn't. Quin is not worth that kind of money and wouldn't approach it on the open market. They should offer him Manning money ($5 mil/season) and if he refuses, let him test the waters. Quin doesn't create enough turnovers to make a big splash in free agency. He has more value to the Texans than another team.
