Default Re: What's the next move for the Texans?

There are actually 4-5 guys on that list that could come here and help this WR corp. I would think lost of them would take the minimum or close to it at this point so I'm not sure what Rick's waiting for.

Thing is, hardly anyone is courting the the guys left on that list because they have questions regarding their return to full health (Breaston, D. Stallworth) or they've been inconsistent (B. Edwards, Heywood-Bey)...

I think Rick Smith and all the other GMs are waiting to see how the draft shakes out and to see who, if anyone, emerges in OTAs

The problem with signing him now is that you don't know when he's going to be healthy and you're taking a big risk on a spot you could be using for someone who'll contribute. Sometimes ACLs can take over a year to recover from.

OTOH, if I knew he'd be ready near the beginning of the season... he could be a good risk to take.

I wouldn't mind them taking a look at Laurent Robinson, providing he can pass a physical (concussions).

Default Re: What's the next move for the Texans?

I'd like for The Ninja to have a man-to-man talk with Karlos Dansby, his old running mate with the Cardinals when they went to the Super Bowl, and have him come here to play ILB.

We'd have to restructure some guys to be able to afford that but there you go.

He had 61 receptions in 2011 starting 13 games in his 2nd year . In 2012 tore his ACL in the first game .

Oh sorry you're talking about him being a #2. They've been looking for receivers even with him there. There's been talk for years that Johnson needs a better weapon on the other side. He's not terrible, but think we can do better.

I was half way joking because of what he did in the Cowboys game. If you don't remember look it up. It was very cheesy. He did have a decent year that year, but they threw the ball a ton also.

I want the Texans to take Justin Hunter in the 1st . In the 2nd a NG or RT in the 3rd the one you didn't pick and an ILB unless a safety is there .

A guy like Nelson is just for depth .

I like Hunter where we pick as well. His injury history and build scares the beejeezus out of me though, but his upside is HUGE! We feel about the same on the draft except I would replace RT with a safety. If, and its a big if, Newton is healthy then I think his improvement will be substantial. You could even see his growth as the season went along. Harris is also a guy we can bring back for depth so I'd rather get a young safety since this is such a good draft for them. Then take a RT in the 4th if we really need one.

I've made no secret that I want Ramses Barden. I can't use stats to back why because he doesn't have the numbers, but is upside is something that'll pay off I believe.
