Default Re: What's the next move for the Texans?

They can still sign guys at higher dollar level, since they can always cut another guy later on when they need to reduce the roster to 53.

For example, if they are comfortable with Meyers, Brook, Jones, White (and a rookie) they can cut Wade Smith to have an extra $2M.

However, if they plan to retain W Smith, the Texans would probably be better of signing veterans like Harris and Dobbins to minim veteran deals.

Last year, they didn't sign Demps until the end of March and Dobbins and James until mid April, and Harris was signed after the final cut, so we might not see much if any action for awhile.
Don't they usually leave 4-5 mil in the piggy bank to sign street urchins to replace injured folks?
