Default 2014 Free Agency.....and the Texans

With names like Owen Daniels, Matt Schaub, Ben Tate, Wade Smith, and Antonio Smith most likely gone at the end of this season, which seems to be over already, it seems that we should start to look at some FA names the Texans might be interested in. We all know that we have way more holes in the team than can be filled by 1 draft class so we'll have to fill some in FA. Extending JJ Watt will be top priority, and I think KJ gets a new reasonable contract as well. With no numbers at hand though I'm thinking those 2 players get signed and that there should be some money left over to sign at least 1 or 2 decent/good FA. What positions would you like to see filled by a FA signing vs. a draft pick? Also do you have any names we should start to look at? FA signings will have a big affect on the draft.

No need to sign JJ Watt this off-season.

I think Antonio is most likely signed to an about 3 year $12 mil deal.

They should scour who is coming available at RT, NT, CB and ILB/OLB (draft the other).

Michael Oher, B.J. Raji, and Brian Orapko look like the out of reach/top guys - the market for Oher might be interesting. There are quite a few CBs so maybe the market will be down there some this offseason.

Default Re: 2014 Free Agency.....and the Texans

honestly, I would look at the math until FEb or something, but don't the Texans generally run the salary cap to re-sign players, get 1 moderate priced free and bunches low cost veterans?

From what I read, PFF said that Clark had a good year.

A possibility is T J Ward at safety.

Add Ed Reed and Greg Jones to that list of players likely to be gone, thus saving us a bunch of money and allowing us to pursue some decent/good FA.

I also would not be shocked to see the Texans cut Arian Foster at the end of the season. I'm not sure about his contract situation and whether or not he's gotten his guaranteed money but the return on investment in him is getting worse each year since he signed his new expensive contract. I'm not saying it's going to happen but I wouldn't be shocked if it did.

Until yesterday I didn't think they would have a whole lot of cap space to throw around either .... then you look at cutting a few guys who have underperformed - OD , JJo and Reed along with Schaub and you have ~25m in cap space to play with even if you eat all of Schaub's remaining guaranteed $$ in next years cap.

OD and JJo cost nothing against the cap to cut while Reed costs you $1.33m

JJo saves you $11.25m , OD $6.25m and Ed Reed $4m.

Then you have about $22m in expiring contracts tho that's across ~13 roster spots.

They will have the option of being active in free agency should they make some difficult cuts.

Default Re: 2014 Free Agency.....and the Texans

Cutting JJo will result in $5M in dead money, but the Texans will have $6.25M to pay his replacement.

The $12.5M saving in 2015 can be divided between that same replacement and re-upping KJackson (unless he follows JJo's regression route.)

Is there a decent FA CB out there in the $6M range?

Brent Grimes is rumored to be in the 3-yr $18M range.

Does that sound doable ?

According to Sportrac cutting JJo results in no dead $$$$ After the 2013 season.

Spotrac is good about the contract details but they often leave holes in the dead money column such as on JJo. He has $5 mil in prorated signing bonus which has not been accounted for to date and would become dead money but the Texans would have a net cap savings next season of $6.25 mil rather than keeping him.
