Red Bryant would be great on the nose. In fact, he's the kind of guy who can play the 0 and 5 tech. Jasper,Tx kid too. 4m per yr sounds good.

I know we won't look at him, but I wouldn't mind giving Johnny Jolly a shot. He appears to have gotten past his codeine addiction and was looking good before his injury. Neck injuries usually aren't things I'd mess with, but he's doing good from what I've gathered

His $$ should be reasonable too

I'd like to see us get him as well. I wanted the Texans to draft him, but they chose Adibi in the 4th & Okam in the 5th. Well, that sure worked out.

There is some talk going on about the Texans going after Matt Cassel. I heard it mentioned on 610 the other day and then came across an article on NFL.com. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...e-quarterbacks.

I'm not a Cassel fan or anything but I think he could be someone to come in and "hold down the fort" so to speak until their young draft pick, whoever that is, is ready to go. The video does mention that Cassel had his biggest year with O'Brien in NE and that Cassel just turned down a 3.7 million contract to stay in Minnesota. So I guess it makes sense he'd be looking the Texans way.

Josh McDaniels was the OC and O'Brien was the QB Coach, iirc, the year that Brady went down. So O'Brien and Cassel worked with each other pretty closely.

O'Brien was the WR coach. McDaniels was OC/QB coach.

You're right. McDaniels left and then O'Brien became the QB coach the next year. My bad.

Patriots writer Erik Frenz just said they would want a 2nd for Ryan Mallett, then explained why and finished with "if they can't get more than a 3rd" they'll keep him and let him go next year. Freudian slip...? If OB wants him I bet 3-1 does it.

i would be happy with this, considering if we trade for him OB knows more than us on the issue.

Ideally if we can find 2 starters in FA by using low cost or mid tier salaries that would be great.

I don't like this idea. Don't think Mallett is worth 3-1, and I don't think we should be giving up any draft picks to get another team's player. There will be plenty of players in FA including QB's. We need to get more draft picks not less. There's too many holes that need to be filled IMO.

I would be interested in Mallet.

I would say yes, but I don`t know how much he has left in the tank and if he`d even be willing to come back.

But if Winston is as good as it gets it almost means, that OT is pretty high up our draft needs. With last years RT no rookie QB would even stand a chance. We can always hope that Quezz or one of the other young guys can step it up, but I wouldn`t hold my breath.

If we don`t like either QB IŽd be more than alright with trading down and taking either of the top tackles. If we do take a QB, IŽd look really hard at RT in the 2nd or at latest in the 3d round.

Yes. Not as good as when he left (and was overrated) but still an upgrade in both pass pro and rush blocking. Better coordination with RG and savvier. You are always going to pull some extra false starts with him though.

Another negative is having to listen to the b!tching from people obsessed with him appearing on the radio a couple times a week instead of silently sitting on his ass at home sucking the centers out of twinkies, naked on a bean bag chair.
