Default Texans could go after Lepsis...

from www.kffl.com

Texans | Team could make a play for Lepsis; if Denver does not re-sign him
Sun, 19 Feb 2006 07:49:09 -0800

Bill Williamson, of the Denver Post, reports word at the Pro Bowl was if the Denver Broncos don't finalize a new deal for OT Matt Lepsis, the Houston Texans may make a run at him. New head coach Gary Kubiak coached Lepsis his entire NFL career in Denver and the Texans desperately need offensive linemen.

Also found this at the Broncos MB...LINK

Word at the Pro Bowl was if Denver doesn't finalize a new deal for tackle Matt Lepsis, the Texans may make a run at him.

Houston's interest would make sense. New coach Gary Kubiak coached Lepsis his entire NFL career in Denver and the Texans desperately need offensive linemen. Many believe the key to quarterback David Carr's improvement will be protection - something he has never had. Lepsis would be a great start.

The former Colorado standout hails from Texas, so the attraction could be strong. Still, Denver will work hard to keep him. But if Lepsis hits the open market, don't be surprised if the Texans push hard for him.

That would be a great pickup, thus eliminating all this talk about drafting Ferguson @ #1.

Yes he is a LT, and has only missed one game in 6 seasons. He started his career as a TE and was converted to LT. he is listed at 6'4'' 290.

From what I read at the Bronco's MB, he is scheduled to count $6.95 against the cap in 2006 and has about $9 million in bonuses due in March.

Ferguson is a left tackle, if you just signed a left tackle in free agency, what's the point of drafting one @ #1 overall?

A lot of LT's in college play RT in the NFL in the beginning of their NFL career.

He is a solid player who can be a part of a good offensive line, not special in any regards and is 32. I player would not want to overpay nor have raised expectation from.

I have no idea. I have not read any of Kubiak's press releases, only what is here on the board, which has been all kinds of different things.

If the Texans sign Lepsis this would mean that Chester Pitts is moving back to guard. Lepsis would be our starting LT. I would think that this would also negate the need to draft a lineman high in the draft. I could see the team going after Eslinger in the 3rd or 4th round and possibly another couple of lineman in rounds 5-7 to build depth.

The likely starting lineup would as follows:

Lepsis - Pitts - McKinney - Weigart - Wand

Or, if the draft Eslinger

Lepsis - Pitts - Eslinger - Weigart Wand

Cut McKinney to justify signing Lepsis. Possibly resign him as a backup as he can play a three interior line positions.

What about Hogdon, wasnt he playing very weel before his injury last yr, or is he not a great fit for this scheme, and if he isnt a great for at centre, is he a fit anywhere else on the line?

According to this link from the Broncos web site, he's not only from Texas,
but from Conroe. He'd be home with the Texans. I dunno...32 is gettin long in the tooth, definitely wouldn't want to tie up too much in him at that age.

How 'bout:

Lepsis - McKinney - Hodgedon - Weigart - Pitts

Wand can ride the pine and Riley can go fly a kite.

He would be a great pickup if the Texans were making a Superbowl run and needed to plug a spot, but that's not the case, we are building a team that we can win with 2-3 years from now. However, he is the model of lineman that the Texans need to pursue, being an undrafted free agent and solid team player while in Denver. I believe Mike Sherman was an O-line coach before moving up, so I have great confidence in his ability to develop underappreciated talent at the position...

Riley hasn't been around since early Dec. By now he's probably only a donut or two short of 380 so I doubt there's much demand for his services around the league.
