Barber is an RFA, and I'm alnost positive that the Cowboys gave him the highest tender. SO if you want to sign him, a) the Cowboys get the chance to mach any offer, and b) it might cost you a 1st and a 3rd to get him.

You like him that much?

He's good, and he runs angrily and with authority, but I like Marshawn Lynch way better as a runner than Marion the Barbarian. Mostly because Lynch can do it by himself really.

Marion Barber isn't going anywhere. But I'd take JJ. He'd be a stud in our ZBS.

Dayne on short yardage, and either Darius or Taylor in the wings.

Oh yeah, if Ahman Green is healthy, we can play him too.

That was the round he was originally drafted in. I'm guessing aj meant draft someone like him rather than throw the Brinks truck plus draft picks at him.

No, that would be the most.

He was a 4th round pick. Draft > FA signing.

Find an example of that happening and we can talk. 1st and 3rd is the most compensation possible in an RFA transaction. What you are theorizing wouldn't even involve free agency at all--it would be a straight up player trade (and unlikely as hell since the signing bonus would immediately accelerate to the trading team's cap)--and to repeat, the most the Texans would have to pay in an RFA transaction is a 1st and 3rd.
