Amazing tool and shows all you "gms" how we are with the cap. It puts to rest that were in cap hell. Play around, cut some guys and see how YOU would improve our cap.

Love that site. The only input I have is that we should absorb the full dead money hit in 2014 for all the guys that are cut (like Schaub). No "June 1st" cuts. Eat it now and use the extra room to re-sign Watt in 2015.

I don't know much about the cap, but the first things I looked for were cutting Brice McCain, Derek Newton, and Randy Bullock.

Watt needs to be resigned now, I wouldn't be able to handle the stress of free agency with JJ out there.. no way no how

It needs to get done the same way Cushings was done but even sooner

Watt has two more seasons before the Texans even have to start considering the franchise tag.

and franchising Watt for 2 years may be considerably cheaper than actually re-signing him

The Texans' options for JJ other than signing a new contract are:

2014 - last year of original rookie deal - $3.575 mil cap hit
2015 - optional 5th year - approx. $7 mil (avg. of 3-25th paid DEs)
2015 - franchise tag - approx. $12 mil
2016 - franchise tag - approx. $14.4 mil

The Texans hold the cards for quite a while.

Thanks I wanted to experiment with that part of site but just didn't have time. I cut Schaub, OD, Manning, McCain, Yates and Tarpinian & Mohamed. I want to think more about which FAs we bring back.

I cut these guys plus Brooke Reed, Martin, Newton, Fat Randy, and Brandon Harris. We have a lot of crappy players, OD not included as crappy, just over the hill like Manning. The rest are complete garbage.

Reed is a containment guy that we expect too many sacks from. Need to replace but not this season. Same with Martin as I want to cut him and then he has a decent game. I won't cut Newton but want to see him compete against Brennan Williams and a draft pick. Ryan Harris cannot beat him out so he should go. Bullock was aweful but may have recovered recently. Let's see how he finishes. Brandon Harris should peak in his third season. We gave KJ three so why not Harris? Besides lett ing these go mean you have to replace them and we already need a lot.

The cap availability right now is a little over 9 Million... Cutting the guys listed gets it over 13 Million. You can get another 13 Million available by cutting Daniels, Manning & Schaub. With those cuts you're looking at 26 Million of free cap space.

Thanks for showing us this new toy. It'll be interesting to see how (or if) the resident draftniks put it to use during the offseason to see who to keep and who to let go.

oh and repped by the way

very nice and simple tool.

does anyone know of a website that graphs trade value of players.

e.g. foster a couple of years back would be worth a 1st round pick but now with his large contract and injury problems is trending downwards.

are the any sites that do this

Excellent page, which got a bookmark in my browser. I played with it, cutting and trading players I'd be willing to part with, and got the cap space up to 23M, still not enough for much flexibility.

Ive been using that site for awhile now. Posters like steelbluetexans is always talking about how bad smith has done. The thing about schaubs contract is i didnt like it when 1st announced, but when i really looked at it, it was a good deal. If he played well,it was a steal,if he sucked,they could get from under it. Smith had reservations about schaub from the get go thats why he structered it so.

I cut daniels,schaub,mccain and let all the free agents go and came up with 27m cap space.I didnt cut any cheap positional player ,but will be looking to upgrade.If nothing else,depth is created. aside from qb,nt,rt,2cbs,safety,te are sorely needed. Ive been watching alot of colege hops to see which of these too short nba pfs might be willing to try football.

Just some stats of who is signed for 2014 by position with key losses. This includes all the players that fans expect to possibly be cut like Schaub. Also the oline is tough to pick positions. Quessenberry is listed as a OT and Jones as C. Either could end up as guard.

QB - 3
RB - 2 (lost Ben Tate & Greg Jones)
WR - 6
TE - 2 (lost Garrett Graham)
OT - 4 (lost Ryan Harris)
OG - 3 (lost Wade Smith)
C - 2
DT - 0 (lost Earl Mitchell & Terrell McClain)
DE - 3 (lost Antonio Smith)
OLB - 4 (lost Brian Braman)
ILB - 3 (lost Joe Mays & Daryl Sharpton)
CB - 6
S -5
ST - 3

Total - 46

Lost 4 2013 starters, 5 primary backup/rotational players & 1 ST monster.
