In '10, Walters and Jones combined for 102-1183-8 and they suck and WR is one of the biggest needs.

Once this whole CBA thing is worked out, there will be a free agency period. With plenty of vet #2 WRs available who can help the Texans. And probably put up similar numbers to Walter and Jones. What there won't be plenty of are CBs and rush LBs.

Brent Grimes
Ike Taylor
Brandon Carr
Antonio Cromartie
Carlos Rogers

If the Texans are serious about winning, they'll make a play for Nnamdi. Doesn't mean they would come up with him, even if they have the highest bid. I would be fine with Joseph, but he'll ask for unreal $$$. Grimes & Carr are OK, but they'll cost $$$ and draft picks (if their teams don't match). There's no way McNair would allow Smith to sign Cromartie. Taylor, Rogers, or Wright? Probably what the Texans come up with. Yippee.

I agree with you, but I really hope that the Texans make an effort to sign Joseph. He may not ask for a contract that is too outrageous.

I think Cromartie just had a 3rd round tag applied to him but I would consider it.

Nope - first and third. I'm guessing you would no longer consider it?

The New York Jets made qualifying tenders Tuesday to their potential restricted free agents, including cornerback Antonio Cromartie and wide receiver Santonio Holmes -- both of whom received first- and third-round tenders.

Could just be me I guess but they sure like keeping a low profile. no apparent sense of urgency.

Even if they have to overpay signing Grimes or Taylor would be the way to go.
