Default Free agent list/Players released

I glanced over the list of free agents that would fill an area of need for Houston and in my opinion it seams like slim pickings. Haynesworth looks good, but Houston is probably not willing to pay him. The safety from the eagles also looks tempting. Other than Darren Sproles no player on the tailback list jumped out at me.

Anyone else I have overlooked.

How about Karlos Dansby OLB from Arizona-UFA. He's 6'04", 250lbs., and 27yoa. He'd definetly fill a need at SLB.

Look for Dansby to end up in Miami. Parcells loves him and the feeling is mutual with Dansby. He would look great in a Texan uniform though.

There are only really 3 Free Agents I'd really like to see the Texans go after, even though I don't see them getting ANY of them.

Nnamdi Asomugha - CB, Raiders
Julius Peppers - DE, Panthers
O.J. Atogwe - FS, Rams

Of course there are some other guys who look interesting in Free Agency, but that is easily my Top 3.

I think we will have a shot at O.J. Atogwe but the other two free agents will be to costly.

Ha. I hope not. The only 2 that might have anything to offer us would be Bodden and possibly Cousins. Primarily for depth purposes.

gee another Texan-Ex Bronco comment......I can never get enough of those.


Bruce Gradkoski was also released. Don't see a lot of help in this wave maybe as time goes on and contract talks breakdown or decisions are made to go ina different dicrection on some staffs we could some some interesting FA. The link did talk about the Jets being likely to pursue Bart Scott. Wonder if they could afford him despite last year's spending spree.

Dwight Smith would be a solid pickup at the bargain bin. Solid FS who can play CB in a pinch and a good insurance policy in the DB rotation if any of the starters get injured.

I'll buy that for a dollar.

Could you make the argument that he'd be better depth than Will Demps or CC Brown? I'm thinking "yes."

why would you want another tailback when we have Steve Slaton?

Doesn't make sense.

Just on the off chance that Slaton can't play the entire game without sitting out one or two plays

Oshiomogho Atogwe and B. Harrison are both Stanford players. Should be pretty smart, which is a good thing for a safety.

How about DE Bertrand Berry from the Cardinals? He's a quality player that probably could be brought in for a very reasonable contract.
