Default More Free Agents?

Well, now that we've traded away two picks and cleared cap space by cutting David and Dominick, I suspect a couple more somewhat significant free agent signings like:

Mike Doss
Joe Horn
Travis Taylor

Joe Horn has already signed with the Falcons, and Travis Taylor isnt a true #22 guy, but I would like Mike Doss, and if I'm not mistaken, we would be talking him from our rival Indy Colts

I don't know for sure, but isn't that money being spent on Schaub and resigning Vonta Leach? I won't be happy until I know that Leach is signed for sure. We need him badly if this team is going to have a successful running game. JMHO!

Great point. Many people keeping thinking that Strong and Free safeties are interchangeable. OBVIOUSLY they're not, ie Brown. We need a solid FREE safety. Don't get me wrong, if Doss could stay healthy he would be an improvement over Earl, but I don't think Earl's our problem. JMO

I think we will get at least one more FA, but not till we know how much cap space is left after the draft and what holes are still left..

If Earl or Brown has a partner @ FS who has coverage skills then either is acceptable as a SS. unfortunately most of the safties that make it to FA are going to be in the box guys.

I'm glad we didn't go after Hamlin. I don't think he'd be much of an upgrade over what we've already got.

I wouldn't be opposed to drafting Okoye at #10 and holding off on S until next season. If our line and pass rush improve, the play of our secondary will improve with it.

Thankfully this draft has a couple Free Safety prospects that can step in and start for us. I think we can get a starter with either first day pick and I hope we choose to go that route

You just start damaging a 1st round safety if you start him right away. With our defensive line and pass rush...he'll be running around like crazy back there trying to keep up. Okoye will help remedy this problem if he is selected say...#10!!

I think we might be out the FA market until after the draft. See what we get in the draft then se who gets cut after June 1st.

At this point, it's likely that we wait for the draft to happen.

I think that we will wait until after the draft to sign anymore FA. Scouts.com has the following player rated as the top three at their positions.

CB-Asante Samuel/Patriots
Jason David/Colts
David Macklin/Cardinals

S-Gibril Wilson/Giants
Jordan Dabineaux/Seahawks
Terrence Kiel/Cardinals

WR-Antonio Bryant/49ers
Patrick Crayton/Cowboys
Ernest Wilford/Jaguars

Maybe a couple of these guys will be wearing Texans uniforms next year.
