I have Mays ranked as the top ILB/MLB available:

Texans ($1.45 M) and Redskins ($1.34 M) are tight against the cap, but both teams need depth at ILB in a big way.

The Texans have sincere interest in ILB Joe Mays. Realistic chance that they make him an offer over next 24 hours, per source.

I can confirm the Texans are interested in LB Joe Mays. First reported by @caplannfl. On his way to Houston now for a visit, per a source.

He broke his fibula. That's the only injury I've heard of with him. I think he was more of a cap casualty. The Broncos had signed him to a 3 year $12 million contract prior to last season and then he got injured halfway through the season.

I think I'd prefer him next to Cush than Sharpton.

From the pony boards....

Mays was nicknamed Idiot Cannonball for his tendencies to always choose the wrong gap and his lights out physicality. A straight up 2 down backer with poor coverage skills. fwiw

Texans say they're bringing in veteran ILB Joe Mays. They need veteran depth.

Hell, he'd be great without being next to Cushing. He sustained what at first was thought to be an "ankle fracture" last October. However, it ended up being a distal fibula fracture, just above the level of the ankle joint. He had it surgically repaired and should be able to return to pre-injury level this season.

Still better than anyone not named Cushing on our roster that plays the ILB position. We need someone who can play the run on the first couple of downs and we know Cushing is a 3 down backer so Mays will do nicely.

Is Sharpton ever going to be healthy?

Rick should cut him so he and uncle Al can go get some justice for Trayvon.

Joe "Cannonball" Mays.

I like it. Cushing Mays 1st/2nd down, Reed moves inside on third, Mercilus/Brahman @ OLB.

I highly doubt reed would move inside on 3rd down. More likely he stays outside and they bring in an extra db like swearinger.

But regarding mays
