Just an FYI--in the nickle package, Dunta plays nickle and Faggins plays RCB.

Thats not a 100% of the time though is it? I thought it was only in certain situations or... you know... when Dom throws one his zone blitzes as the offense.

I certainly wouldn't swear to 100% of the time, but that is the default substitution that is generally used.

Honestly I think Faggins could be a starter eventually. Maybe not this year.. maybe not next year.. maybe not for 3 or 4 years.. but he seems to have good instincts. The only place he is lacking is in the physical gifts department, but that can be made up for with good instincts and a strong understanding of his position and how to play it.

I like him.. I want to see him stay as a Texan for his career.

Good job on the Texans part. Faggins is in line to take over for Aaron Glenn and should make for a great duo with Dunta. In the meantime, they keep one of the best nickelbacks in the league.

The money part is out...he landed a good contract:

Associated Press reports the Houston Texans have re-signed CB DeMarcus Faggins to a four-year deal worth about $6 million, which includes a $500,000 signing bonus.

Good for Faggins, and good for Houston. It was fun to see a guy get a shot and make the most of it, and he got paid for a solid contribution.

Now, as for the REST of the free agents, glad to see Ioane back on board for minimal money, but I pray we don't reach to sign Payne. As has been said elsewhere, Houston can't afford to sign two Gary Walkers at the same time--both are damaged, aging linemen with big cap numbers. I say that even as a Payne fan...you can't question his heart or character, but you definitely can question paying him huge dollars when he was so hobbled last year.

We'll see how Faggins does, he does not have good speed. He ran above 4.5 at the combine or w/e. His tackling is questionable, but he seems to play smart, and that counts more than anything.

Faggins ran a 4.54 40-yard dash at 178 pounds at the combine and he already has demonstrated solid cornerback play (why he got such a good contract for a 6th round pick). His quickness is what was most impressive. best combine stats per PFW

I'm really happy to see this guy coming back. He really became one of my favorties as the season progressed. I agree that he could one day take over for Glenn. He has showed tones of improvment and will only continue to get better.

As for the nickel, I know he played RCB for Duante at the beginning of the season when Duante was taking baby-steps but as time progressed and Duante proved his worth I think Faggins when back to playing nickel. I know when Capers sent D-Rob on a blitz he was lined up at nickel.

Dunta played the nickel the entire year for the most part, just like Coleman played it the year before. Capers likes to have a more physical corner at nickel so that they can be used to blitz more often.
