Yall are crazy if you think Sharper for the Browns #1 is going to work. There is no way that would happen. Now are 3rd plus Sharper for the Bengals #17, thats a little more realistic. Still I have a hard time beleiving that we could get anything higher than a second rounder. They would REALLY have to be high on Sharper to give away their 1st round pick.

I don't understand why we would trade away Sharper and then go and then trade up for Derrick Johnson. That would take draft picks and I thought one of the purposes of trading away Sharper was to get rid of his contract. If we draft at #3, we will be taking on another big contract.

The direction the Texans D is going is for Greenwood and Wong to play in the middle, and maybe we draft a guy like Thurman to play around with. Other than that and maybe drafting a guy to play ROLB with Peek, maybe Merrian or another one of those tweeniers, I see this linebacking core taking no more futher drastic changes.

More bad news. According to Fox 26, both Sharper and Foreman told the Texans that if they're not able to make a trade soon then they wish to be released in order to give them a shot to find a spot on another club. Sharper sounded upset on the phone interview, and he said the he was willing to restructure his contract to stay a Texan but apparently the Texans weren't interested.

... and don't forget that Bradford showed his pretty Lions jersey. He was impressed that he got a jersey and a locker space already (doesn't take much does it?) and that the Lions said they had 2 recievers and that he could battle for a position. He's gonna check out the Giants as well.

Yeah that was my first thought too, but it may just be a PR move by Sharper.

Im still hoping for the rumour about him going to Cleveland and us getting the #3 pick to possibly pick of Derrick Johnson. Is there any update on that matter or has it been declared as not going to happen?

I don't think the Texans are too interested in getting anything other than draft picks for Sharper and Foreman. It may not matter, though, 'cause I don't think many teams are gonna trade for a guy who will be getting cut anyway?

Foreman yes, Sharper no. Very well could be wrong but I doubt they cut Sharper without a trade. If the cap room is available and there is nobody signing on to replace him/take up his cap space then why not keep Sharper rather than release him?

I agree. I don't see them cutting Sharper unless a bonafide replacement has been found. I just think the idea that the Texans will cut Sharper (whether or not they plan to) might lower his trade value (meaning Sharper will probably remain a Texan).

I personally would like to team to get some extra picks and trade up to take the guy they covet most.

Given the other thread. My musing is more than likely waaaay off the mark. Sharper would be worth a high price to any team looking to win now.

That thread was removed until the poster could produce a link. Don't hold your breath, it was likely a hoax,

If he's serious and the Texans aren't willing to restructure, then I don't know what to think...

with as many changes it appears we'll be making this offseason, particularly on D, I don't see how there will be a serious push for the playoffs in '05

but I seriously hope I'm wrong.

Default Sharper Ready to Move On

Quote:
Sharper, speaking publicly for the first time since being given permission to seek a trade, seemed resigned to leaving Houston after leading the team in tackles two of the last three years. Both he and Foreman expressed appreciation for their teammates and fans and regret they weren't able to lead the Texans into the playoffs.

"I've had some time to take it all in, and I'm ready to move on," Sharper said. "We're trying to work out a trade, but it's not looking like that's going to happen. I respect the fact they gave me an opportunity to seek a trade, but if it can't happen in the next couple of days, I need to be released."

Sharper said he met with general manager Charley Casserly on Monday and was told it's possible the Texans could hold on to him until they see how the roster looks after the draft.

"I don't think that would be fair," Sharper said. "That's where we have a difference of opinion."

Casserly declined comment.
