Bring Brian Orakpo home!!!!!!!
AS? You mean Antonio Smith...he is already a free agent. $8.125m in savings by releasing OD and Schaub. You need to remember that you still need to sign your draft class. The #1 draft pick signing will eat up all of the savings from Schaub and some of savings from OD.

Reports from OTC shows the Texans have been allotted approximately 7.5 mil to sign the rookie class year one, should use up about 4.6 mil of cap space. So you say effective cap space is about $3.5mil before any releasing of players.

Wow, Cap Space increased to likely $132 Mill this year. Doesn't mean we can go bananas, but it does mean we can have way more than we previously thought possible.

This is true if the Texans take all of Schaub's dead money this year. If they June 1st him his cap space will cover all the rookies and then some.

Not advocating - just pointing out it is an option.

Yep, there are multiple sources for this information. Nobody truly knows what it is. Spotrac could be using a different total cap number than I am. We all have a good idea where they stand right now.

Default Re: Texans' Cap space......and the rest of the League

This is what some of us had predicted after the new CBA was signed but then last year's almost nil increase stunned many. As much as I like Orakpo I must admit to feeling a bit nervous signing FA even if one should be in his prime. If the deal was right, hard to say no. Any thoughts on skins tagging him?

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5215/brian-orakpo


"That’s similar to the expected value of the franchise designation, which would allow Washington to offer Orakpo a one-year contract for approximately $11 million. Allen said the Redskins “really haven’t gotten into those types of specifics yet.”

Orakpo said frequently during the season that he would like to remain with the Redskins, who took him with the No. 13 pick in the draft in 2009. The mutual affection between player and team helped the Redskins sign cornerback DeAngelo Hallto a four-year contract worth a reported $17 million earlier this week.
Hall, who has played with the Redskins for parts of the last six seasons, played last season under a one-year, $1.25 million contract."

Don't they also have a ton of cap room this year with the sanctions over? They can afford to pay him and he would like to stay there. I see them reaching an agreement.

That is my feeling also. Nothing seems to break in our favor whether it is a very good FA we can afford or an outstanding draft pick at 1.1

3.5 +4.5 OD + 4 Schaub= More than enough to sign Orakpo and the cap is going to go up more in 2015 when the new TV deal kicks in so you can do a contract that has more bonus $$$$ in the 2nd yr. Even though I will concede most of that extra cap $$$$$ will go to re-signing Watt.

With 30 mil I would rather get 1 impact pass rusher and fill the NT in FA. Sign a vet QB for 3-5 mil a yr. Then fill the rest of the holes and add depth in a very deep draft. Do you think these 3 holes can be filled using the 30 million?

Mercilus does not belong in that group, and Cushing is going to need a strong ILB to make up for his loss of lateral movement.

Maybe Orakpo would consider coming back to Houston with a "hometown" discount........maybe not.......still doubt that Haslett doesn't hog tie him with the Skins.
