I hope that we cut ties with Weaver and free up Cap Space to pursue other free agents.

Isn't Justin Tuck also a FA de?

I think he would be a good pickup but im a little hesitant because I think lots of guys would look good in a rotation with Strahan/Osi.

He signed a 5 year $30 million extension with the Giants earlier this month. He would have looked nice in a Texans uni but the Giants probably see him as Strahan's replacement whenever he retires

spicer would be my first choice of the players in this list. spicer's one of those guys that simply gets results and would be a relatively cheap pass rusher without being a liability in the run game.

as for weaver i think he was added more because of character and the hope of versatility during the transition. i dont believe that anyone thought he'd be a probowler anywhere on the line but the staff hoped he could fill all four holes until we built kubiak's team. coming off of a 2-14 season we've progressed faster than anyone thought we would and weaver became obsolete in 2 years instead of a filler for 4 years.

Smith is terrible. He comes off a sorry defense and he did nothing.He doesn't provide pressure and acyually the gathers kid is way better. if you cant get allen or suggs, they might just have to draft on in the 1st couple of rounds maybe. Kearse from philly will get cut, he will be a better option than smith.

He's not a beast anymore. I would sign him to an incentives laden contract but I wouldn't count on him being our starting defensive end opposite Mario

I know this we definately need an upgrade over Weaver he is taking up a lot of cap space.

I could see us possibly re-structuring his contract to be more cap friendly, but cutting him would be a big cap hit. His 08 cap is 6.2 million. Which is the highest of any player currently on the roster.

FWIW, I do agree that he's yet to live up to why he was brought here.
