Default Any post 1 June FA signings for the Texans?

What FAs do you guys think (if any) that we are in the hunt for after the 1 June cut date? I have my eye on SFA alum Jeremiah Trotter...he would be an impact player anywhere he went and he's only 27yrs old. Downside is that we can't swing a dead cat in the room without hitting a LB of some sort. Also, I don't know if we are willing to shell out the bucks for Trotter right now.

Enough from me...how bout you guys?

Possibly Jason Gildon (if the price is right) to mentor all the DE turned OLBs now on our roster. As for any others I could always see us bringing in a vet or two for the O-line.

I think I remember Casserly saying in an interview after the draft that any players they brought in after June 1 would have to be willing to accept a non-starting role...

They haven't been happy with Kenyatta Walker. I wouldn't be surprised if they let him go.

Any word on any WR being released on June 1? Would like to see the Texans add a veteran WR if there is a descent one for a good price.

I think we would have to see if anyone is available to provide good depth at the NT position and I sometimes feel like the youth we have at WR is a liability right now. I wouldn't mind bringing in an experienced WR to sign maybe a two year deal. Although I do see alot of young talent at our WR position, I would feel more comfortable with us having a guy who can make the good catches late in the fourth quarter to sustain drives.

I think that a solid veteran WR would be a good move, I just don't see anyone on the potential FA lists that I would go for. I think the mentor role was supposed to be Bradford's...I just don't think he is the guy though.
I thought (and I went out on a limb here) that we might have had a shot at Dennis Northcut, but he just resigned with the Browns.

Don't expect it. He doesn't cost enough for them to give up on him already. He is still in his rookie contract where he was the 17th overall pick, so not too much $.
They have other O-linemen that cost more that would be of more cap help to cut.

kenyatta walker led the league in penalties last season. i guess he wore out his welcome in tampa. as for WRs, the only ones worth looking at that i can think of off the top of my head would be David Terrel and possibly Muhsin Muhammad. i've read that the texans are very interested in Jeremiah Trotter along with the Eagles and Seahawks. Gildon may be a possibility too.
