If they did trade Cousins, better tag a couple of 2nd rounders to your deal...

So they probably wouldn't do the trade since they gain nothing from it but another backup quarterback and a backup running back.

I agree though that we do need to get someone in here to develop for the future.
Good points. Was just trying to feel everyone out on the potential to move both those guys and get something back.

I think we agree that Cousins would be a better trade than perhaps any other backup QB who's out there right now. And with Tate, he and his agent could sell a team on how the Texans just stuck with Foster and never really let him have a chance. They could point to those games back in early 2011 when Foster was out and Tate was getting lots of reps and had good stats, too.

If we enter the year with Tate on the roster, we're not going to get anything for him when he enters free agency in 2014. It'd be nice to find a willing trade partner and get something out of him like we did for Ryans last off-season. One year of Tate is not better than getting an extra pick for him that we can use in 2014, IMO. This coach isn't going to play anybody but Foster and Forsett (or enter random FA or UDFA pickup here --> ______) anyways.

I think Tate is as good as gone.
