You know if Flanagan cared about his fitness a little more, he could get back to his Pro Bowl year.

Well if he could be 8 years younger that wouldn't hurt either.

Default Re: UFA Recap

This is a little view of the offense (position by position):

QB: David Carr, Sage Rosenfels, Brandon Van Pelt, Quinton Porter

Honestly I think that the best thing to do is trade Carr for a 4th round pick and sign Ramsay. Also draft a QB in 2nd or 3rd round like Troy Smith, Drew Stanton, Kevin Kolb, Trent Edwards or Jordan Palmer. Rosenfels and Ramsay will complete for the starting spot and the rookie will learn behind them during the year. Drop Van Pelt and gives Porter a spot on the practice squad.

RB: Ahman Green, Domanick Williams, Wali Lundy, Chris Taylor, Samkon Gabo

First of all drop Williams (Davis). He had good years with the Texans but his time is done (because of injuries...). Secondly don't resign Dayne. I think that the Texans have two great young RB in Lundy & Taylor who can make the same job as well. I think that Gado will not make the squad this year. He is a good player but he don't take his chance last year.

FB: Vonta Leech (RFA), Jameel Cook

Resign Leech. He proved last year that he was a great leading blocker for our RB. He and Cook will make a good job for us at the FB position. Cook is a better receiver and Leech a better blocker.

WR: Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, Jerome Mathis, David Anderson

With Stallworth out of the market (he will sign with Pats or resign with the Eagles), the Texans must try to sign Antonio Bryant. Despite some problems out of the field, he is a very good receiver in his prime and will be a real #2 WR. Moulds last year, was not able to stretch the defense like Bryant can do.
The Texans must also look to take a big physical receiver like Rhema McKnight, Dallas Barker or Jacoby Jones in mid round.

TE: Owen Daniels, Jeb Putzier, Ben Steele, Joel Dreessen

Daniels and Putzier should be a good duo of receiving Tight End. But their weakness is the blocking ability. The Texans must look to Matt Spaeth (superb blocker) or Matt Herrian as blocking TE in the draft. Dreessen and Steele will fight for a roster spot.

OT: Ephraim Salaam, Charles Spencer, Eric Winston

Spencer and Winston are two good young blocker but I don't know if they are ready to be starter. Durability is also a question mark for Spencer. Salaam is good but he's not a long term solution. Jordan Black or Marc Colombo must be attractive UFA for the Texans. In other way, they can look in the draft for players like Tony Ugoh, James Marthen, Ryan Harris or Doug Free in the 3rd or 4th round. Chester Pitts can also be an option for the LT spot.

OG: Chester Pitts, Steve McKinney, Fred Weary, Chris White, Scott Jackson

Pitts and McKinney will enter in the Training Camp as the starters but Fred Weary is a serious contender for the spot at right. But Pitts will maybe play as LT and McKinney as center if Flanagan is still injured. Cooper Carlisle could be a great addition to give depth at this position. Chris White should be on the roster as center/right guard.

C: Mike Flanagan, Drew Hodgden, Chris White

All is about durability and fitness for Mike Flanagan. If he stays healty he could be an import piece for Texans offense. If he still injured, Steve McKinney should be the Texans's starter at this position. But maybe Hodgden can step up in training camp and became the starter.

Tomorrow Defence

I like Cato June, Lenny Walls, Tank Wiliams and David Macklin from the list.

Let's go after Nick Harper or David Macklin and get another decent CB.
