sounds good to me, but didnt Gary sign a pretty big contract, so only way he'd play is if G-Man went down with injury. Cant let all the money go to waste !

cutting him wouldnt be bad EXCEPT the fact that a contract is guranteed money and we still have to pay it to him if we cut him, so it would be a huge blow to the texans salary cap if we were to do that ! And it was like a 3 or 4 year deal he signed !

The Texans rotate the front 3 a lot and having quality depth for injuries and rotation is a big piece of holding 4th quarter leads.

And the only part of Walker's contract that is guaranteed is the signing bonus he already received. The problem is if he is cut all of the remaining un-prorated signing bonus would immediately hit the cap.

Lets no over exaggerate not. Walker is the only one on the line who sucked this past year, I remember watching Walkers Wolrd or whatever his show was and G-Funk touched Carr and Carr jokingly responded that was the closest he had been to a QB the whole year. Sad thing is it was true. Not to blame it on the injury, but Seth was really starting to come along a little after mid-season and Robaire stepped in and did his thing as a first year DE in the 3-4. They weren't outstanding, but i don't they they deserve the term horrendous.

Please do correct me if i am wrong.

I think underacheiving fits our d-line better. Payne showed some promise up untill his injury and, when healthy, he is the bulwark of our defense...aiding sharper to plus 100 tackles. As for Smith, he was a little "green" to our defesive schemes and I think he will contribute more this year. I have more doubts in walker though...sigh...

I think this guy would be a monster if he came in on passing downs or if we go to a quarter defense or a 3-3-5 during a game.

Rocky would be great to pick up. He's young and could split time right now and then eventaully take over someones spot. He'd be a great pick up.
