Hey, anyone know any players from other teams that might be good pickups for us? Surely we can be the only ones having to decide from cutting decent players off the roster.

Would be a sweet pickup. But he'll want too much money and a long-term deal. Plus about 30 other teams probably want him.

He is a Florida State alumn, maybe another good mentor for TJ.

Heres the big questions for Simon, how many teams can afford him right now? There are only a handful of teams far enough under the salary cap to be able to sign him. Not that far of a reach for us IMO. Stranger things have happened.

wow, let's get Ohalete. He'd be the perfect replacement and upgrade for Jason Simmons. He's a little bigger and he can play CB in a pinch and both safety positions.

did any really talented LTs get released?

We don't have room for anymore WRs.. We're more talented and deeper at WR than anywhere else on the team. assuming we keep 6, i still think bradford will be cut: AJ, Gaffney, Armstrong, Mathis, Swinton, SThomas

I wouldn't release any of those guys for Price. Gaffney and Armstrong have great hands. Mathis is faster than God. Swinton has speed and is a special teams difference maker. SThomas has a lot of potential and has had a very good preseason. I don't think Price helps us.

I recall hearing that Price was having some sort of vision problems. Not something you want from someone who's supposed to be your #2 WR. I don't think he's someone the Texans should go after given our depth at the WR position.

dexter reid was cut by the patriots...he's a solid FS to mold behind coleman

quinton cravor was released by the chiefs...remember hearing that we were interested in this kid during the offseason

corey simon's franchise tag was removed...this guy is huge the only problem he's a starter...we are set for right now at our starters...don't think we could sign him to sit right now

pete mcmahon was released from the raiders...might be a better tackle to develop than m. brown

frank middleton was cut from the dolphins...maybe better than our back-up guards...unforunetly i think he's gotten too fat and too lazy

marcus lawerance was released earlier from the panthers...former south carolina gamecock who can play inside linebacker

Not to sound like a jerk, but teams aren't in the habit of releasing really talented LTs unless they are old and hurt, not even either or.

Simon wants a long term contract for more then 5$Million. He would be a burden on our cap room and he wouldnt play as good in a 3-4. Hes a 4-3 player. Maurice clarett I beleive would be a good pickup and ill tell you why. He has been shamed and **** on by the broncos. He has played like a high school player and hasnt shown anything but a hot ego. However when his ego settles he will become a good 2nd string RB. I beleive we could use a power back of his caliber because we never seem to be able to get that goal line play that we need.

I believe it was an attempt at humor


Petey Warrick was cut by the Bun-gels, and I'd take him over Price.

I don't know if we are the team to do it or not, but I think someone will take a shot on Clarett because his contract is low risk unless he performs... and if he does, he's earned it. Denver was just too deep with good RBs for him. I think he'll end up in Dallas personally.

Being here in Dallas I dont think so. Jones, A. Thomas, Tyson Thompson(?) and Marion Barber III I dont think the Cow-Girls even have the room.

Good point. I was thinking on a lark they might take him and try and develop him becasue Parcells expressed interest in him during the draft.

the only thing i know about him being released, houshmanzadeh rocks. Warrick might be one of those injury prone guys as well, I know he was injured most of last season, if not all and he was injured the season before that as well.
