And yes the Texans have plenty of cap to replace those three. Smith's upgrade is most likely already in the cap even.
You can do what you want to with the Colt starters, the BOTTOM LINE is the Colts have ENOUGH money to replace with equal or better talent, the Texans DON'T. What else that is perfectly clear is that FINANCE is NOT one of your stronger subjects.

You asked, what it would take to replace those 3 starters ( I assumed on the open market). Reality is Jones or Quess will replace Wade Smith, however that is not a GUARANTEE that is equal or better talent. It could be also be a Newton redo. To replace a LG w/ 1000 starts who grades out better than Wade Smith will cost $3-$4 million per year. Soliai and Spikes next contracts will be closer to $3-$5 million per year. $1 mil per year gets you Mays or Sharpton.
