Give me Clowney 1-1, sign Soliai and Orakpo in FA and draft Goodson in the 6th and I'm a very happy camper. The rest of the picks could be spent on offense.
Bring Brian Orakpo home!!!!!!!
AS? You mean Antonio Smith...he is already a free agent. $8.125m in savings by releasing OD and Schaub. You need to remember that you still need to sign your draft class. The #1 draft pick signing will eat up all of the savings from Schaub and some of savings from OD.
Reports from OTC shows the Texans have been allotted approximately 7.5 mil to sign the rookie class year one, should use up about 4.6 mil of cap space. So you say effective cap space is about $3.5mil before any releasing of players.
