Default How does the Texans getting first pick of FA's work?

I've heard that they get first dibs. Does that mean they get the first shot at claiming every player (within the 53 man roster limit limitation) off the waiver wire? Or, does it mean they get the first shot at only one player?

First pick on any and every player that is waived.

I believe we get first shot at every player.

1st shot at any player... but what does that actually mean, any player cut can still play anywhere he wants, Do they get the right to match other teams offers?

No, I think that if the player goes through the waiver wire unclaimed, then they become an unrestricted free agent. If they're claimed, they go to the team that claims them. No choice, no negotiations. I'm not totally sure about this though.

So maybe I have this wrong... there is a difference between being cut and being waived... if a player is CUT he has say in where he ends up, but if a player is waived then the Texans have first pick @ him... If this is the case, then my hopes for Charles Rogers are pretty much done... - Brand0n

Are the freaking Broncos EVER gonna make their cuts? Or will they wait until
:02 left before announcing it - kinda like their starting lineups each week at RB.

well I was looking at his scouting report.. willing to block stands out(a must in a kubiak system) ..yet weaknesses

Quote:
Positives: He has a rare combination of size, speed, receiving skills and athletic ability with a great future. Is a vertical receiver who will not be caught from behind. His hands are outstanding and athletic ability is exceptional. Great leaper. His speed is deceptive, much like that of Marvin Harrison, and Rogers is never really covered. Had a streak of 13 consecutive games with a touchdown. Can pluck and snatch and make the one-handed catch. Makes difficult catches look easy. Extends and goes up for the ball. Outmuscles defenders. Sells his routes. Aggressive. Willing blocker. Gets separation and shows make-you-miss. Has beaten the nation's best corners and really shows up in big games.

Negatives: Has a superstar's attitude. Is loud, cocky and immature but very competitive. Needs work on underneath routes; tries to break everything off deep. Isn't afraid to work but relies on ability. Doesn't beat the jam consistently and needs to learn to beat double-team. Loses concentration at times, making drops running before the catch.

Summary: Top-five pick who has the ability and athleticism to dominate at the next level. Shows the playmaking ability of Andre Rison and better speed and consistency than Plaxico Burress. Not as fast as Randy Moss, but is more reliable and a better person.

Actually he can be had for just his base salary. The Lions have to cover the cap space for all his signing bonuses, even if he's not playing for them anymore. So the Texans only have to pay his actual salary. Most early draft picks get huge amounts of bonuses and a relatively small salary - since the bonus are guaranteed, they're much more desirable for the player than salary, doubly so for unproven rookies.

Default Claims

I believe we have to cut a player, in order to claim a player. So my question is who do we want to cut from our current 53 to claim a new player?

This is BEFORE his history of injury, injury, injury and more injury............he's reinjured during TC. There is no mention of his PREDRAFT substance abuse........... and, of course, he learned from his 1st round.........just to subsequently REPEAT it in the NFL. He MAY have lost one of his "negatives," i.e., "cockiness," but the rest listed have continued to plague him during the little amount of time that he has been able to get on the field.

Apparently we only have priority until 11:00 this morning.

I'm probably the lone wolf out there, but who has Smith brought in so far that we really like. They say he is doing a good job, but I'm trying to figure out at what. The draft class was a reflection of Kubiak and Casserly, not Smith. From what I have seen so far, I think Kubiak and Casserly were on page better than Smith and Kubiak. Right now I have Capers' vibes about Smith. I hope I'm wrong, but I wasn't on Capers. By the way that's not what I want. I hope Smith turns out great, but there is just something that doesn't seem right to me and I can't totally put a finger on it.
