Lee Rasizer, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports the Houston Texans are interested in free-agent OL Jake Scott (Colts).
Jake Scott, 6'5" 295 lbs. Drafted in the 5th round of the 04 draft, by Indy, out of Idaho.

Started 9 games as a rookie, and followed that up by starting 16 games in 05, 06 and 07 (15 at RG and 1 at RT (against Atlanta on 11/22)).

maybe this means Weary is not going to be re-signed.

Not just Scott but Boss Bailey too, according to the source article.

These, Scott and Bailey, are the type of signings that could really help this team and allow them to not worry about adressing certain positions in the Draft.

Rick Smith may be the most meanignful addition to the franchise, ever.

The key to free agency is not to run around like the sky is falling and sign everything that moves for 80 billion just to make a statement ala Oakland and NYJ. There's a lot of gold to be mined in the second and third wave players. There's certainly more value. The story of the old bull and the young bull applies in this case.

The Texans haven't signed either of those guys yet..... but I'm happy that they're looking in that direction.

Trust me I understand that this process is far from over, but the news of who they are looking at, and the refusel to meet Hadnot's ridiculous demands ; makes me wuite happy with how the FA period could end.

Not that I am unhappy with what has happened so far.

Rick Smith is a genius. Hope he and Kubiack get a good long crack at this. A Cowher-esque tenure, except with more titles of course.

Stability is a very good thing.

Oh and Scott and Bailey get my vote too!

I tend to think that Boss Bailey is a better, familiar name than he is a player, but he is highly athletic. BTW, we should note that every LB the Texans have shown interest is more of the athletic, quick type.

Scott smells like a ZBS guy and while not as talked about as Gibbs' system the Colts run a ton of zone principle in their offense.

I have been a fan of Houston pro football for over 40 years. Do you know how happy one Superbowl win in the next 10 years would make me?

I really enjoyed watching Bailey in college. But he's been plagued by knee injuries which have slowed him down quite a bit.........possibly why the Lions
are allowing him to walk (no play on words were intended).

I'd be excited to get Scott...........pass on Bailey.

I'd take any of the starters from the Colts offensive line. . . Payton rarely gets hit and that has just as much to do with his line as it does his pocket awareness....

It would be excellent to take a starting OL from the best team in the division.

IMO, Boss Bailey has always been overrated because of his athleticism.

It also doesn't hurt when you can write on your resume, "My older brother is this dude named Champ Bailey. He's alright I guess."

I might fake being hurt if i was on the lions.

IMO I think he'd like the grass at reliant as opposed to the turf at Ford Field.

Would love to poach Scott from the colts.

If there is anybody you throw money at it would be Scott. Appearantly he was good enough to start for a very good team for the past 3 years so he could be an upgrade over here. Also, the fact you are taking from a division rival makes it a nice thing too.

Which guard do we have on the roster that you would just have to start over Jake Scott? Pitts? Maybe?

It all depends on money, of course (no more Cass contracts, yay!), but if we could snag Scott, that'd be nice.

They were taklking about this this morning. You get a guy who can replace Weary, depending on where he is at and you take him from a division rival. On top of that, he is young.
