Default Reggie Wayne, UFA....should Texans acquire?

Arguments can be made that our young WR corp could blossom into something nice but with Reggie Wayne possibly in the market should the Texans go after this guy with determination?

What are your thoughts?

I think he would be a great pick up, but I'm a bit worried how much he'll ask for. IMO he will want more then he is worth.

It wouldnt be the first time that any houston team over paid for a free-agent. At least he is proven to work along side a big threat reciever

He'll end up playing for the Colts again, he might even take a salary hit just to stay around that bunch, and who can blame him

I would go for him. He is a great talent. Could you imagine AJ, Wayne, Bush in the slot and have DD in the backfield. Man that would be excellent. We then should go to a form of the Run n Shoot in certain situations.

Or have DD and Bush in the backfield with Wayne and AJ on the outside? The options would be plentiful if that scenario would work out.

So yes the Texans should make a play for him.


This will be a interesting off season.

Very true.....not the first time we paid big figures to sign a guy....at least this time, it'd be someone worthwhile. I say we do it......he's there and the Texans shouldn't make the mistake in passing it up. We've done so in other off-seasons.....we can't afford to keep making these type of negligent mistakes continuously.

I'm afraid of that....but, money talks. For the Texans sake and ours , let's hope he's open for negotiations.

The thing about Wayne is, I know he's going to ask for bank. He is worth it though. I doubt Indy lets him leave though. Indy will dismantle their D before they let that offense break apart. If we switch to the 4-3 next year, I could see us going after Mathis.

I could see him pulling an Orlando Pace on us and just using us to get a bigger contract from Indy.

I doubt Wayne comes here, and we've have to overpay him to get him to, so I don't consider him a realistic option at WR for us next year. If Indy can't afford him I'd look for the Eagles and/or Falcons to make a serious push for him as the Eagles attempt to bring in a WR to replace Owens and the Falcons continue to search for capable WRs for Vick to throw to (assuming they don't go after Owens in free agency)

I am a little worried about this guy. I think he is a great wr and all but i think he will be getting overpaid for his level of talent no matter where he goes. I think he is kind of a product of their scheme. Even Brandon Stokley looks good in their offense. He could do well as a Texan since he will see little double teams with AJ on the other side but i think his stats from the past years will get him more money than he is worth.

I agree, and I think several teams will be looking for good WRs this year, and with the lack of talented WRs in the draft, there could easily be a bidding war for free agent WRs that will drive their price up and make it difficult to get one.

I think we should give the new coaching staff the benefit of the doubt. They will need to evaluate if Gaffney and Bradford are quality players and whether to address this position in the offseason. If everyone says that Gaffney is good the we shall soon find out because he is going to be given one of the most pass friendly offenses in the league.

Bradford's trash though.....guy drops passes when he's all alone, take the Pittsburgh game for instance. There were others but that one really boiled my blood than the others.

Bradford has no business returning to the team. Gaffney is a nice slot receiver, nothing less but nothing more.

I don't think we should go after Wayne, yeah he is a good receiver, but not as good as everyone thinks. Peyton Manning can make a bad receiver look decent and a decent receiver look amazing which is what he did with Wayne. I think keeping Gaffney would be good for the team but we do need another threat. If I had my choice, I would go after Kevin Curtis. That guy has talent and playing behind Tory Holt and Issac Bruce definately helped him. He probably won't be a massive burden financially. We could probably sign Curtis and LaCharles Bentley for the price of Wayne, giving us 2 positions filled instead of just 1.

It would be sweet if we can afford him. With an offensive minded coach, Mathis, AJ, DD, and maybe Bush. It would be quite powerful. But if we don't upgrade our O-Line, it will be money well wasted. Carr can't complete a pass laying on his back.

It is my opinion that we have our stud WR and we pay him like one. The rest of your WR's should be organically grown through the draft. A very good TE in FA would have more impact, in my opinion, than a well paid 2nd WR.
