Nick Ferguson was at a point in life where he needed his old friends.

Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak were there for him. A starting strong safety for most of the previous five seasons with the Broncos, Ferguson signed a one-year contract Wednesday with the Houston Texans, whose administrative hierarchy is stacked with former Broncos' Smith and Kubiak.

"Nick's healthy and excited to be working again for coach Kubiak and for Rick Smith," said Jack Reale, Ferguson's agent.

Texans fans know no such thing as logic. I'm sure there's somebody out there (probably about to call into 610) that thinks this offseason was a horrific failure because we didn't nab Turner.

With all the moves the Texans have done this offseason, I can't tell if they are great moves (talentwise compared to the NFL) or if the old regime really dumbed me down with their process of drafting and overpaying players that we were made to believe that were talented

so far I love what has been done

Depth at safety perhaps equals targeting BPA at OT or CB when we get to #18?

Did you not already believe that is what they were going to target in the 1st rd? I guess not since you asked. I am assuming you are a Kenny Philips proponent? There is something about that guy that I dont like. Maybe its just that he isnt 1st round talent and I dont want our team to over draft a guy that I think is going to bust in the NFL.

Actually, I'm a "draft BPA at CB or OT" at #18 proponent so this signing suits me just fine.

I would say I'm a proponent of drafting BPA at whatever we pick at, whether it be a HB, CB, LB, DE, LT, or whatever. I think we would be wrong to assume we knew the overal plans of this front office. I think we have so adequately added depth at every single need position that absolutely ANYTHING is possible. Should be interesting....

Ah but what position have we not addressed? The one where when we think of back up we say "who?"

Im not alluding to any specific positions, the opposite , I'm saying they will take the BPA period, whoever that may be.

You said depth had been added to all needed positions. I was hinting that is not true of LT and Jordan Black is the who?

Agreed that depth has been added everywhere with the exception of CB and OT where I still think we need help. Which is why I think all of the Chris Brown / Nick Ferguson type moves that we are seeing are geared to pust uus in the best position to address those two positions in the draft.

My thought too but Jacques Reeves was signed to play CB. There are a few CBs available after first round that I am starting to focus on.

We have a lot to choose from either OT or CB. Theres about 4 at each position that are first round worthy. I guess you could say RB too but w/ Jonathon Stewart having surgery...plus im not sure felix jones is 1st round worthy.

I was hot on STewart until toe surgery but all I read says he should miss at most two games. He did run 4.4 at combine with that injury. I really want Williams LT if he slides but I would not put $ on that. Recent mocks have Stewart going to Dallas. If Williams not there #18 and no earth shattering trade is offered, I am leaning again towards Stewart. Forte my alternate will be gone by our third imo. If we had a 2nd to get Forte that would really open of the draft.

Ferguson is a good depth signing. I think he was in Denver while Rhodes was DC and I think we'll run similar schemes to what Rhodes usually runs so its good to have a vet that can show the younger players what they're doing wrong while in training camp.

In the end however I think he's competing with Brandon Harrison/Glenn Earl for 1 roster spot and I think he's this Training Camp's Keenan Mccardell. Basically brought in as a player/coach for TC.
