i think your sentiment is shared by many of us. borderline terrible + vastly overpaid? wonderful combination. this interest in all these LB's certainly puts SOME validity into greenwood being a June 1 cut. i doubt barber and clark would have come here unless they knew they would be getting some solid PT. i'd think lewis would feel the same.

I'm all for adding more depth and options at LB, not to mention bringing in a good guy that I graduated high school with here in Houston.

NFL LB, not bad for our star FB.

DD Lewis is one of my best friends cousins, and his family lives around here, I am almost positive he is going to sign becuase of inside information I have. He was part of the seahawks defense for the past 5 years or so and played for texas....so he has played in plenty of big games, I think he would be a great addition.

I think I read that he played in a SB which if true should be helpful.

According to McClain on 610 last night, the Texans want more speed at the LB position. I don't know how much speed some of these veterans are bringing, but I at least it increases the competition.

Someone on this board made the VERY wise comment just last week or so (and I've heard this before)...any time you have a LOT of something...that means you don't have enough (quality).

Great example....look at ALL of the WR's that the Patriots have on their roster at present. It's freakin INSANE! I mean.........9 WR'S even BEFORE the draft! hahaha WOW!

15 Kelley Washington WR 6-3 218 8/21/1979
13 Bam Childress WR 5-10 185 3/31/1982
Donte Stallworth WR 6-0 196 11/10/1980
87 Reche Caldwell WR 6-0 210 3/28/1979
83 Wes Welker WR 5-9 185 5/1/1981
17 Chad Jackson WR 6-1 215 3/6/1985
10 Jabar Gaffney WR 6-1 205 12/1/1980
19 Kelvin Kight WR 6-0 213 7/2/1982
81 Jonathan Smith WR 5-10 194 11/28/1981

With all of the LB's were bringing in....that tells me....we aren't sure about any of them (or atleast not any particular 3). We did the same last year...and that was BEFORE we knew what kind of immediate impact RYANS could/would have.

I'm not complaining....I'm fine with finding the 2 most suitable stop-gaps for 2007. But let's understand that whether it's DD Lewis, Clark or whomever (wait...did I just say LEWIS & CLARK...haha), we'll need to get another RYANS-CALIBER guy in 2008 since 2007 appears to be more WR & DB and Line (both) focused).

Did I mention I still would like to see us draft a freaking kicker. hahah

We resigned Stanley....again. McNair must be his uncle or something.

Greenwood seems lost at times...hell most of our LB's are lost half the time.

we had a seriously bad linebacker problem after DeMeco last year so none of this surprises me a bit.

agreed. it also shows LB's are easier to aquire via free agency than other positions like cb/ot/de so they can focus on these in the draft

D.D. Lewis when he was at UT seemed like Derrick Johnson before Derrick Johnson...dude was nice back in the day...(back in the day was like, 2001...lol)...but yeah, he was a tackling machine then...problem was some games he'd have a rough go at it if the O-Line had great run blocking...(Like the Colorado game in 01...big 12 title game).

He'd be a great addition, and if xTRx's "birdie" is right...damn, Rickizzle is gettin rid of ALL Casserly's mistakes....in 2008, I guarantee yall, look for TJ to be on the chopping block in 08.

I think we should trade him now. Draft Okoye and trade TJ for either a pick or DB, OL.

well i think morlon has the talent to be good but i don't think his talents really translate to the field as well as casserly and capers thought it would...remember when he was in miami he seemed to be a solid LB but i think we're seeing that his production was due to teams running away from zach thomas

with the guys we are bringing in like danny clark, shawn barber, and now dd lewis to force greenwood and wong to compete
