Default Jeremiah Trotter a Texan?

From ESPN.com
Quote:
Despite recent reports that middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter will sign with the Eagles after he is released by the Washington Redskins next month, don't look for the veteran to be headed back to Philadelphia for a second stint. Most fans will recall that Trotter signed with Washington in 2002 after the Eagles rescinded the "franchise" label with which they had designated him. Philadelphia coaches are split over the play of middle 'back Mark Simoneau, a first-year starter in 2003, and some would like to upgrade. But if there is a change, it won't be with Trotter, who already has been replaced by Michael Barrow by the Redskins. Look for Seattle and Houston to perhaps court Trotter when he is released.
I know this is just a rumor like Darius, but what do you guys think about Trotter taking over for Foreman in the middle? As far as tackling goes, Jay has been more productive over the last few years, but Jeremiah has had more sacks and INTs, particulary when he was with Philly...

Thumbs up

I think Trotter could be a very solid linebacker for us, and it might do him some good to be back in Texas. If we can get him for a reasonable price (not sure if we have to assume his contract with the Redskins or what) I think he and Sharper would make an excellent ILB team.

Well, that has shocked me. I can't even imagine Trotter being on the Texans.

Man, don't get me too happy before he even heads out to visit us. Would be great to start to get good LBs in our lineup. Right now we just seem to have Sharper, and I'm hopeful that Babin turns out good.

Default Trotter an upgrade

Although this guy is an older backer, there is no doubt he would be an upgrade over Clemons or Foreman. The Big Clemons experiment was horrible. The guy looked overweight and slow the entire season and was unable to regain the 3-4 scheme and speed need to play the position. This would be a great pickup for the Texans!

I was so excited about Clemons last offseason, but he was a bust.

I have a feeling that the Texans are done with major FA acquisitions this year.

Sabbat00, Rogers name is spelled Clemens. Please learn it since he is one of the greatest sports athletes ever, a product of Houston HS baseball, a product of UT baseball, a long remarkable major league career, and will be elected to the baseball hall of fame, the first year he is elegible.

Trotter would not fit in the Texans organization. He is a troublemaker.

Actually, while Trotter has been in the league a year longer than Foreman, he is actually a year younger than Jay is... younger and more experienced, i like the sound of that

*edit* btw, Jeremiah is 27, Jay is 28.

I can't believe 27 is old for a LB. All I am interested in is their ability to tackle, read plays, and cover. Age has a lesser bearing.

I'd like Trotter as a Texan. I liked him before he signed in Washington too.

I think if we sign any veterans after the June 1st deadline it will be or needs to be another DL. That is the area we neglected in the draft and one we could use more depth at.
