Heh we just went through a bout of injuries at this spot and you want to say we have Sharpton for depth...the guy who has spent more time injured than on the field in his career? Sounds like we will end up with a deja vu if we went that route. Plus Dobbins played better than him even on special teams. So between the two Dobbins is the better option. In any case, I was thinking more in the fact we need a couple of bodies for Depth. Not just one and definitely not just one who has proven to be injury prone like Sharp.

Default Re: Dobbins, McCain drawing interest

If Dobbins is getting interest and signs the first week of free agency then that means he is a free agent loss that will qualify for a compensatory pick in 2014... Assuming we lose Dobbins, Barwin or Quin, Cody, perhaps McCain, Caldwell, etc.. We are looking at accumulating some extra picks again next year.

Remember, we are looking at 10 or 11 picks this year due to last year's free agent losses. So, a good deal of our LB depth will come from those picks. Dobbins is a solid player, but he is going to be horribly exposed against the championship caliber teams because he is a deficit in coverage. So, he's not a guy this team should covet, IMO.

He can't play man coverage, and the Texans like to play a lot of man coverage. Harris could probably be OK on a team that plays zone. He has the wrong skill set for this team. They need another corner.

Harris was very bad from what I saw.

I would rather sign McCain if we could only sign one but its a toss up.

So I wonder who the Texans are reaching out to.

BTW, I loved (L-O-V-E-D) what I saw from Harris. He's going to be a player going forward.

Harris showed some promise if you ask me.
I would be OK with McCain going. Dobbins is a pretty solid backup. If you don't sign him, then you will need to find two inside backers in the draft in my opinion.

Sounds like their agent hasn't even been contacted by the Texans yet. McCain worth 3.5-5M a year? Bye bye, Brice

Among things Canter said: McCain worth $3.5M to $5M a year, Dobbins won't come back for minimum, no offers from #Texans as of this morning.

Good deal. I assume he re-signed for minimum, and this doesn't hurt our compensatory picks. Fills a need at backup ILB.
