if the texans can get some deals done in free agency thats great... but if they do cut schaub they need to eat up all that dead money this year, I'm a believer that any team can make a run for the Super Bowl but you also have to put yourself in a good position for the future

Well. D'Qwell Jackson was released by the Browns. So it's not out of the realm of possibility of us getting him. Granted, he's probably going to the Broncos but there's still a chance.

With cap set, a look at Texans' free agency
Quote:
The NFL salary cap for the 2014 season is set at $133 million, up $10 million from 2013. And it's plenty more than the initial $126-$128 million projections.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the cap is expected to reach $140 million next year and $150 million by 2016. Those would be some big jumps.

So what does it mean for the Texans this season? Well, they'll have a little more room to work with...

Default Re: Texans' Cap space......and the rest of the League

JJo has had a couple of years of multiple injuries and surgeries, and decreased performance. I like JJo, and he, surprising to me, scored a respectable 6.5+ at ProFootballFocus last year.........before his season ending injury. Not much was revealed about the injury. I was able to determine that he had sustained a torn ligament in a toe and underwent surgical repair. Important in this, the only toe that you would typically consider operating on would be a Turf Toe...........a grade III Turf Toe which reflects very severe damage to the toe. Despite the very debilitating nature of the injury ,very few turf toes ever will go on to surgery.

Rehab from this surgery does not allow return to play short of 4 months. But players will almost universally complain of restricting pain for 1 year. And with time, the joint almost inevitably becomes stiff and arthritic.

Keeping all of this in mind, OB will not be able to evaluate JJo and expect any truly useful information as to how his performance will have been affected by his recent surgery for a long time to come.........certainly not before the draft and doubtfully by the June 1 cut date.

Just for clarity, the important part about June 1st is cuts made after that date.

Unless you may want more FA money to play with this year rather than next year.

No, more money this year comes from cutting them after June 1st, not before (other than designating them to be treated as post June 1st cuts).

Cut before June 1st - all on 2014.
Cut after June 1st (or so designated) - split between 2014 & 15.

Gotcha. Had it bass ackwards. But, either way, it seems that OB would rather know by June what he has in JJo?

It is counterintuitive. I agree OB would rather know as ASAP. JJo is a rather key piece. The need and availability of a replacement could be the difference in whether Schaub is taken as a June 1st cut.

I still feel you do not nominate Schaub as June 1 cut. Need that money in the free agency period.

Depends which free agency period you are talking about. Making Schaub a June 1st cut means more money for free agency this year and less next year.

Default Re: Texans' Cap space......and the rest of the League

Could you designate JoJo as a post June 1st cut and go ahead and cut Schaub. Then have the FA $$$$ from both of their contracts? Although the savings from Schaub would only be about 2 mil instead of 4 mil.

How much cap room would designating JoJo as a June 1st cut give the Texans to spend in FA compared to doing the Same with Schaub? I'm not a cap kinda guy.

I'm not much of a cap guy either, but I fail to see what we gain by cutting Joseph. Despite the injury issues, he's still the best CB on a team that needs CB's.

Except he was below avg when he was able to play and that $$$$ could be tetter spent elsewhere. Say if cutting JoJo meant you could sign Orakpo and Rashean Mathis for close to the vet min (who was as good as JoJo last yr) you would be better off. IMHO

Joseph graded out as a top-25 CB on PFF. He did struggle with injuries, but I don't see how cutting him and signing a 34-year old as his replacement is the solution. I also don't see why Mathis would settle for a vet minimum deal after a good year at the tail end of his career. He's going where the money's at.

Don't know about PFF rankings but JoJO wasn't in my top 25 CB rankings. I thought Mathis played just as well as JoJo last yr.

I'm really just trying to find the cap $$$$ to bring Orakpo home. He/Watt/Clowney would bring to the defense what it has been missing.
