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.
3.5 +4.5 OD + 4 Schaub= More than enough to sign Orakpo and the cap is going to go up more in 2015 when the new TV deal kicks in so you can do a contract that has more bonus $$$$ in the 2nd yr. Even though I will concede most of that extra cap $$$$$ will go to re-signing Watt.
