Default Free agent O-linemen?

It's nice and good to hear about wide recievers, tight ends, etc.. who might sign with the Texans, but I haven't heard anything about a potential offensive lineman who will help us. It's our most important need, and although it's still early in free agency, I hope we sign at least one quality lineman before it dries up. Any thoughts?

EDIT: Apparently, I missed the piece about Flanagan.

Well the reason you don't see anything concrete is look who our GM is...

Newflash Casserly..how about looking at Orlando Brown who the Ravens needed to cost-cut. Give him some $$$ for a couple of year deal and FINALLY protect the QB you are forcing us to accept. :brickwall

I've seen a number of O-line names linked to the Texans and posted about in this forum. Patience.

The highest lineman salary in the history of the NFL is a good reason. On another note, how in the world is Archuleta the highest paid safety? I wonder what decent safeties will actually get.

Orlando Brown...the guy who got hit with the ref's flag....has been released....may be worth looking at. He used to be a beast.

i'm hoping for flanagan to sign here pretty soon...maybe over the weekend...as far as i'm concerned i think with flanagan we have our starting line-up set...isn't the lack of depth we have that concerns me...for some reason the homepage still has gerrick jones on our roster even though he is a atlanta falcon...that means...if we re-sign wand we have exactly 3 tackles...3 guards and 4 centers with flanagan...that's not a lot...we need some veteran guys to be signed so if weigert were to go down again or wade we're not stuck with rookie lineman who were probably drafted on the second day

Orlando Brown is big, slow and old. Not a good fit in a zone scheme.

Flanagan.[/QUOTE

I was just about to start a thread similiarto this one..
I think it would have started." We are looking but when do will we sign a OL."
I think the next few days will tell the tale.
If we do not sign one in FA I think we missed our opportunity. The draft is looking interesting. Maybe D'brick isn't so far away after all .

Well did you want him to be small and fast?....he is a OT. Although yes he is old. But I'm sorry I think you could make an argument that he would upgrade our line as of right now.

BTW I think if we end up signing Putzier and Burleson....all of your D-Brick fans can get a lot more hopeful and excited about the chance of us moving down and signing him.

Default Jeff Mitchell

Is Jeff Mitchell, Center from the Panthers, still avail? He is rated just higher than Flanagan by scouts.com and is one year younger. Seems like a good option to bring some experience *including a superbowl ring* to the offensive line if Flanagan doesn't work out.

I think he is I know he was released but I haven't heard anything on him. He probably wants more money than Flanagan though.
