I've read that he's asking too much money. Which means the odds of him coming back here are slim. Unless he drastically lowers his price

Texans will sign more veteran FAs who they can get with affordable deals. I expect an OT, ILB, WR and perhaps a NT.

I don't think this will happen, but if NT Casey Hampton would do a deal close 2 minimum 2 stay home, I think Texans should check him out.

Hampton would have to be in good shape and agree to be part of the rotation with Earl Mitchell. He's worth considering with his resume.

Hampton's impact isn't about tackles. It never was. He demands double teams to free up the linebackers. If he can do that to let Cushing and our other LB do their thing while still getting 2 tackles a game then I'd say he's worth it.

Well worth it. Ask ray Lewis how much difference a guy like that makes.

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

Daryl Smith is someone I like and since he was injured last season and is over 30 & he isn't getting a ton of interest (it seems). He's another player at the end of his career but he is a hell of a player when healthy. One of the best linebackers in the NFL a few years ago, can play all over the field. He isn't a pass rusher but he is very instinctive and covers a ton of ground. He missed almost all of last season with a groin injury but I think he played the last couple of games for them. He'd be another short term fix, but another proven veteran who could really help Cushing inside.

I'm hoping they're looking for a decent OT. I doubt that Caveman comes back, he seems to be looking for another sizeable payday and we can't afford that. Ryan Harris looks like the best fit for the scheme and the remaining budget.

You talking about the ILB from Jville right? If that's who I think you are talking about, yes I would have to agree with you. He also has been somewhat of a thorn in the Texans side when we play Jville, seems to have decent to very good games against us.

I think you might be better off just drafting two in the early rounds and save your $$$ for depth at both ILB abd OLB when the June cuts roll around.

Somebody on a fins board said that Winston was asking for $6m-$8m a year. He's out of his mind. Andre Smith (Bengals RT) is also an UFA, and he wants in upwards of $9m a year as well.

Obviously we can't afford Winston if he's deluded enough to be asking for $6 Mill but I do know that if we stay with the status quo, we won't be very good on O.

we won a championship & that was with trying to figure out who our right guard is. That should not be issue.

The Texans probably wont be able to afford him even if he comes down off that high horse to a reasonable price ... We'll likely be looking at Vet Min or close to it guy's from here on.


I get the idea that the team didnt want to push money off into future years caps ... Not reworking AJ or Ninja's deals to free up a few $$$ .... as they have some big decisions to make on Cushing , Watt and KJax. coming up. Pushing money to future years doesnt help them with that ....

Draft picks and bargin FA's .... thats what I expect.

By no means am I a fan of Heyward-bey, but from that list, I might choose him just for his ability to take the top off a defense.
He might not be all that good, but his speed has to be respected, and that alone has some value, both opening up the passing game underneath, and keeping safeties honest so they can't cheat on the running game.

Call me crazy but of the list of FA's .... I think I might go with Steve Breaston or Braylon Edwards at the right price. (the fact that I even spoke the name Braylon Edwards says a lot about how piss poor the FA WR's are).

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

I suspect the next serious "shopping flurry" won't happen until after the draft is over and OTAs start. And maybe not until the June 1st cuts happen. We might see onesies and twosies between now and then but nothing more.
