They need a quality #2, Ragone is not going to accomplish that. A Testeverde-type that can step in and hold the fort for a few games is needed.
I have a feeling Testeverde might be available next season. I don't think the Cowpatties are too happy with him.

He's going to be 30 in February so you don't want to go crazy on a contract like they did with Walker. The fact that they invested so much in Walker and Smith will have an effect on what they will be willing spend to re-sign Payne, Sears, and DeLoach.
When he's on his game, I think he is clearly superior to Walker. But they can
invest only so much money in resigning verteran D-Lineman and must also
look to the draft to use scarce resources for inclusion of younger players in restocking the D-Line (and all positions for that matter). Another thing about Payne is that he has made it clear he very much wants to play in a SB. So he might sign at a discount to get with a real contender. Or maybe he thinks he's already with a team that will contend in the next few years, which would then enhance our own bargaining position.

I think Wells should be re-signed.. he has filled in nicely when davis has been out and he has been running VERY hard. He seems to be a good power fit for the zone blocking scheme.

If the Texans draft a center who can also deep snap, that will free up Pittman's roster spot. He hasn't been as consistent this year and has hurt Brown on a couple of FG attempts. If a roster spot is going to be reserved for a deep snapper, he needs to be just about perfect.

one would expect with 4 picks within the first 3 rounds that subtraction of four roster spots from our F/A, RF/A & ERF/A list.

ERFA-Jason Anderson, JJ Moses, Bryan Pittman

RFA-Jarrod Baxter, Milford Brown, Troy Evans, Demarcus Faggins, Matt Murphy, Jonathan Wells

FA-Tony Banks, Jason Bell, Marcus Bell, Corey Bradford, Junior Ioane, Marlon McCree, Moran Norris, Seth Payne, DaShon Polk, Corey Sears, Jason Simmons, Marcus Spears, Kenny Wright

the Texans are at least two deep at all these positions depending on who they draft and what needs are addressed other than the center position which has been mentioned numerous times, so you can bet the Texans use one of those first four picks on a center. After that even if Banks leaves we have two back-ups waiting in the wings. Norris is going to be the #1 FB with Wells as his back-up as needed. Our WR corps are talented & deep without Bradford, but I would not be surprised if he took a pay cut to stay with the Texans. If the Texans draft a TE in the first three rounds look for some change here as well, I'm just not sure who would be out however.

assuming we let Pittman go.. who will be our longsnapper? our draft pick? what if the best center available isnt a good longsnapper?

Just curious.. I mean.. would we then have to sign an FA longsnapper? probably end up signing Pittman again.

I really like Banks and hope he'll stay. Faggins and Payne need to stay too. I like Moses mostly because he's reliable. He did fumble today, but either than that, he's been dependable all season.
