Default Possible Center??? Jeff Faine

I was scanning along www.kffl.com and found this rumour....do you think the Texans would be interested?? Looks as though he was a 3 year started and is only 24. I have no idea what his salary is or what they would want as compensation.

He's better than nothing. If McKinney is moving over, I'd like to get a Center either second or third round in the draft or someone who has some starting experience. I'm tired of the talk over signing guys from other teams who aren't good enough to get a starting job anywhere but here.

I would take a first round Center and let him compete anyday. Unfortunatly, I can't say I really know anything about this guy yet.

They probably want to get rid of this guy after adding all of that salary to the OL...he may come at a cheap price...

Exactly, and if this guy is as productive as 3 sacks in 36 games shows, then we would be in good shape by signing him.

Yes, why would we want "good" players? We must reject all players who look like they have a shred of talent before even looking at how much they're asking for him, because that's how you build a winning team.

This guy is 6-3 and 291. That may be too small for a center playing in a regular offense, but he would be perfect for the zone blocking scheme. Kinda like Greg Eslinger from Minnesota.
