I think it is because they play the first preseason game on Monday instead of Sat.

Official schedule, per ESPN:

• Monday: The NFL will announce that teams can go to 90-man rosters and the official free-agent list will be distributed to teams.

• Tuesday: Trading begins. Teams can reach agreements with rookies and undrafted free agents beginning at 10 a.m. ET. Teams can reach agreements with all free agents and signed players are allowed to enter team facilities.

• Wednesday: Players can begin reporting to training camps 15 days before their first preseason games. According to the proposed timeline, 10 teams would report on Wednesday, 10 more on Thursday and 10 additional teams on Friday. The New York Jets and Houston Texans would be the last two teams to report, on Sunday.

• Thursday: Teams can begin to cut players at 4 p.m. ET.

• Friday: Teams can begin filing transactions to the league office at 6 p.m. ET.

• Aug. 4: Deadline for recertification and ratification of the collective bargaining agreement by the players.

Default Re: Free agent activity about to get hot and heavy for Texans

Thankful strike is over, but I have a bad feeling about our braintrust's performance during the chaotic period starting tomorrow. (based on past deals Dan O big money, Chris Brown, Green,Jackson, going young in secondary, .......) Whatever happens I think we will see without a doubt what we have in the front office after this period is over. I just hope we are not asking questions like why didn't we trade him versus letting him go, why did we ever draft this player this year, or what are they doing? C'mon Kubiak/Smith surprise me.

I thought so too but people like LZ think he will be a FA diamond in the rough, so to speak. The last 2 were from yesterday before this came out

Butler has long arms, good feet and could be solid in pass protection with more reps & experience. He's better than many starters at LT now

I'm not predicting Rashad Butler will be a star, but you can win in the league with just decent LTs & Butler could end up being a player.

I'm sorry to see him go. I thought he performed well during Brown's suspension and I would have liked to have kept him as long as possible. He's a good fit for this offense.

The Redskins are a perfect fit for him.

Here's a factor that will make this whole process even more complex -
the new CBA and the therefor the new NFL year begin Aug. 4 which of course is just next week, and that means teams have to be under the new cap at that time.

I'm surprised he lasted here as long as he did. He has the makings of a serviceable OT in a league hungry for them. It was not realistic to think we could keep him long term.

1. Nnamdi Asomugha, CB, Oakland Raiders:

Julius Peppers topped last year's market because of his ability to sack the quarterback. Asomugha, 30, the headliner of this free-agent class, closes off his side of the field to quarterbacks. Over the past three seasons, only 52 passes were completed against him. Like Charles Woodson, who left the Raiders to join the Packers, Asomugha has the type of body that could allow him to play until his mid-30s.

Leading suitors: Houston, Tampa Bay. Dark horses: Baltimore, San Francisco
