Default Center John Wade and Safety Chris Crocker to Visit

Meanwhile, the Texans have visits lined up with two more free agents Tampa Bay center John Wade and Atlanta free safety Chris Crocker.

Crocker would be nice if we cant re-sign Demps.

I havent seen much of him but he has been a starter for the last three years (2 with ATL, 1 with CLE).

LOL

Crocker would be a great pickup, either for depth or as insurance against losing Demps.

Wade is 33. Meh. Maybe Hadnot won't get what he wants from Cleveland and he'll come groveling back to the Texans.

I am wary of this Wade character, per Wiki:

Quote:
As the oldest player and only veteran currently on the Buccaneer offensive line, Wade gets veto power over the choice of restaurant for the Bucs offensive linemen's get-together meals every Thursday night.
In all seriousness, if the guy were not 33 there may be a few folks fighting for him. He has been relatively healthy and has started for two different teams that have been run focused - Tampa Bay and Jacksonville. 6'5',' 299 lb. with ten years of experience.

I still hope that we go with a C in the draft.

Barrett, you must be a big Dan Snyder fan. The Browns have forfeited most of their draft picks and have nobody to play CB, while overspending on guys like: Donte Stallworth and Shaun Rogers... gross!!!

Both are solid, but unspectacular players who will be ok until the Texans find longer term solutions at their positions.

I do too. They need an guy who can be here a decade himself and who can run the line and make the calls for future years. I'm not sold on old Vets who in some cases might get their first set of injuries. I always get wary when I see phrases about "reliable" and "injury free" because I think their first will happen here. I guess you can't worry about it.

If the Texans sign a veteran, free agent C I don't think they will draft one. A vet combined with White, Chucky ans Eslinger should be able to hold down the C spot. ANd if noe of the young guys emerge as a potential starter, the can try again in FA or the draft in 09. I think Smith wants to sign a veteran C to remove the position from the list of holes that need to be addressed in the back half of the draft.

Then again if one of the better Cs starts to fall in the draft, Smith just may pick him up.

jamal lewis? another yr older. good last yr but...
their new d-line? both from 4-3 D? both questionable motor types especially rogers

I liked Eslinger as a prospect and we do have bodies. However, we have always had bodies yet no consistent play at Center.

Crocker would be a an upgrade or something for insurance in case of demps decieding to go elsewhere.

I'm thinking we're looking for a decent option behind Eslinger. With Flannigan and Hog cut White is the only experienced C option.

Doubtful.

Cleveland is in a tough division despite some not-so-stellar records last season, plus they play the entire NFC East, the entire AFC South and also Buffalo and Denver in 2008. If they win 10, they're very lucky, IMO... I can see them going 9-7 next year.
It's really a little early to make predictions for the season, but it's not so early in Cleveland's case because they shouldn't be able to make many more significant roster moves this offseason.
