to be honest with u i dont think so, i mean we will sign some FA but i dont think it will be any BIG NAME ones and especially this early. BUT we should get a few before all the good ones are gone.

At least management has had a little extra time to decide who interest should be in among those available.

My question is where is John McClain? The dude has one little article about free agency that anyone of us could have written and nothing else. Come on, there needs to be some reporting on free agency.

Pure Speculation

From what I have been hearing the Texans are in very serious talks (although not official b/c this would violate team rules) with several agents (sorry to note but no big names). What's up with the local media?

Default One Key Free Agent

Lacharles would be so great to Replace McKinney @ center, Draft D' Brickshaw, and pick up Arringtion at MLB, wong on the outside and Peek on the other! We need @ least one Big name Key Free Agent!

I hope we dont roll the dice on Bennie J. This year, we need a TE!!!

Why are the Texans saying they aren't going to be very active in the FA market? It seems to me this would be the perfect way to improve the offensive line. What am I missing here?

I suspect that Putzier will be a signing and it probably won't take long. After that, I have no clue.

I think someone mentioned this before last season. Should we try to get Berrian? Isn't he Carr's target from Fresno state? Is he any good? Think he might be avaialble after da Bears' acquire the El?

McKinney will play LG for us this year, and we will probably start Hodgdon at OC unless we get someone better... like Bentley.

i liked Hofgdon at center last year, he seems like a pretty solid blocker on the run and the pass, could be my imagination but it seemed to me carr had more time to throw the ball when he was in the game.

I too want to see some action in FA. I think Putzier will come at TE. Bruce and Walker at WR aren't going to happen. Maybe we will pick up Moulds or Givens. Arrington would be great or an established OL (even though the draft is deep with OL), I would like to get at least 1 maybe 2 high quality FA's before the draft.

i admit A.V is good, kris brown had a down seson last year, yes i admit that, but why pay so much more money when we have a solid kicker in kris brown, its not like our kicking game is a weakness.

Nailed it, except the Arrington part. Putzier is the obvious target in FA in short term. Although we could get a quality TE in the draft at #33, I don't see us using #33 on a TE... maybe young LB (D'Qwell?).

A.V. is obviously better than Brown... but at what price are you willing to upgrade the K position? I would rather focus those dollars on more pressing needs.
