Default Texans showing serious interest in DT Sam Adams

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2884143

it looks like the Texans are possible front runners in looking to pickup DT Sam Adams who got released by the Bengals. I have always liked this guy even when he was an Aggie. He is old and due to other team's interest, he won't be cheap...but I think we could really help ourselves. If memory serves me, he played in the 3-4 a lot early in his career but to have a 4 deep DT squad of Okoye, Adams, TJ, Maddox would be really nice. He could really help stop the run in the middle and allow Okoye to focus on penetration.

I completely endorse getting Sam Adams as long as we don't overpay. What do we have to lose?

we have another problem, only so many roster spots, carrying 4 DT is a bit much, it would take away from something else we are not so deep at. IMHO


Edit : actuallly that would be 5 DT's definately overkill

Signing Adams would pretty much be the end of Travis Johnson as a Houston Texan.

right, but how many will make it out of training camp and the preseason?


i wouldn't mind this signing too much even though he's in his 14th season... seems like our defense is going to be fun to watch this season.

Definitely seems like overkill @ the DT position. What went wrong with TJ?

you're assuming we're keeping TJ..

a 4 dt rotation is ok.. especially when you have guys who can be involved in GL defences- plus we dont know how much zgonina has left in him (like adams) so bringing him in to battle for 1 of those 4 spots wouldn't hurt imo

On one hand I'm all for picking up Adams and shopping or cutting TJ. I would rather have a vet that knows what he's doing than and guy that doesn't care about being an NFL player.

On the other, do you want to sign a 14 year veteran? Isn't that a bit too old?

I wouldn't mind picking up a 70 year old man at DT so long as he could stop the run.....

Adams would be the space eater at DT that we have missed just as much as a left tackle. Who cares if he's old? As long as he is fat and can still occupy blockers, he will be fine. Amobi is the playmaking DT. Could be like the Williams combo for the Vikings

I'd love the signing. I don't think I could think select a better mentor for Okoye at this point in the FA period and that's where the 14 years come in play. Okoye is too young and Adams is too old. I'd call that some serious counterbalancing by the Houston Texans and it's a move I'd love.

Will it happen? I seriously doubt it. We don't have the money. Just because we're agressively pursuing this fellow doesn't mean it's a given. Also, I'd really hope the Texans would wait a mite bit longer and see who becomes available this Friday (June 1st cuts) before committing a chunk of the cap towards Adams. I'm still hoping for a prime free safety to be released come Friday.

I say if he can play and it doesn't cost too much sign him.
Random question can Eric Wilbur kick fgs? If so, we can cut both Stanley and Brown, save a roster spot and carry an extra positon player.

While it would be cool to have him for a year just for the mentoring and leadership skills alone, I'd bet that he comes at too high of a price.

I read this article again and I don't see where it states that we're the front runners? All I got out of it was that he's tentatively scheduled to meet with the Houston Texans. Maybe you have another source that pinpoints where you're getting your information from? I'd love to read up on that.

I also read a little futher and noticed that Adams is primarily a two gap defender and Okoye is a three gap defender. I mentioned in a post earlier today that I'd love this signing and would only see it as to be extremely beneficial to Okoye. I just may have been incorrect on thinking that. With that in mind, would any of you 'gurus' elaborate on this? Would a two gap defender be a good mentor for a rising young three gap defender?
