Any chances the Texans go after him? Could he be had for cheap? We need some LB depth and he's only 23 years old.
You are the one with the source, dude. Are the Texans interested?

That depends, how many games will he miss while in jail?

Suspended 2 games for getting into an altercation with his head coach. Arrested for signing an illegally tinted windows ticket "F#@k Y'all" instead of using his name -- then presented a forged letter from his doctor stating he was photosensitive and needed the illegally tinted windows. I'm thinking not.

You left out the best part!

On January 27, 2011, a vehicle being driven by Rolando McClain was shot at while McClain was in his hometown of Decatur, Alabama. No one was hurt and police are unsure if the shooter knew that the car belonged to McClain.[24][25] He later fired multiple shots at the police.

On December 1, 2011, McClain was arrested by Decatur police and charged with third-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm inside the city limits, all of which are misdemeanors for a shooting incident that occurred the night before.[26][27] On May 17, 2012, McClain was found guilty on all counts, ordered to pay a $500 fine for each charge, totaling $2,000, and sentenced to spend 45 days in jail for each charge, 180 in total. He was freed on bond, and will begin serving his sentence on June 1.

Brad Jones has been at the top of my list from the start. Didn't think we would pay what some others might. Overpaying free-agents is a sure-fire road to cap hell. Jones is at the top of Walter Football's list as well. http://www.walterfootball.com/freeagents2013ILB.php

The New Orleans Saints placed linebacker Victor Butler... on the physically unable to perform list Tuesday...

Butler landing on the PUP list comes as no surprise. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament in June and might miss the season.
Ouch, I liked him.

I didn't read all 8 pages of this and if this has already been said I'm sorry. The obvious person we need to go after at this point is Kerry Rhodes.

He is rumored to be gay and it's clear that NFL teams aren't ready for that yet.

Because of this he has generated no market this offseason which is completely asinine, but no market means we can fit him in under the cap and he is an immediate upgrade while we wait for Ed Reed.

The guy was rated as a top 4 safety by Pro Football Focus and is an absolute beast on the field. He is an 8 year pro and can make an impact on the NFL football field day one. No need to nurture him or slowly bring him along like we might have to do w/ Swearinger.

We need to fill our glaring holes with high quality players we can afford under our cap before we start chasing depth at other positions.

Long Story Short... Bring in Kerry Rhodes!
