I worked hard to figure this out and am confident I am very close on these numbers. Right this minute, I estimate the Texans are nearly $30 million under the salary cap. here's why and how:

Texans have plenty of cap room

Default Re: Contract Status of Texans

The Texans currently have 52 players under contract. Below is a list of those players, the last season they are under contract, and the number of players under contract per position (compiled from Rotoworld). This list should bring an understanding of where the Texans depth issues lie.

QB [2] Schaub (2012) Yates (2014)
RB [3] Foster (2016) Tate (2013) J. Williams (2012)
FB [1] Casey (2012)
WR [7] A. Johnson (2016) Walter (2014) J. Jones (2013) Jean (2013) Maehl (2013) Iglasias (2012) Holliday (2012)
TE [2] Daniels (2014) Graham (2013)
T [4] D. Brown (2012) Butler (2012) Newton (2014) Gardner (2012)
G [4] W. Smith (2013) Caldwell (2012) S. Smith (2013) Austin (2012)
C [2] Myers (2015) Wallace (2012)
NT [2] Cody (2012) Mitchell (2013)
DE [4] A. Smith (2013) Watt (2014) Jamison (2012) R. Harris (2012)
OLB [4] Barwin (2012) Reed (2014) Braman (2013) Nading (2012)
ILB [4] Cushing (2013) Sharpton (2013) Alexander (2013) D. Smith (2012)
CB [6] Joseph (2014) K. Jackson (2014) McCain (2012) B. Harris (2014) McManis (2013) Carmichael (2014)
S
[5] Manning (2014) Quin (2012) Nolan (2012) Keo (2014) T, Williams (2012)
K [0] None
P [1] Hartmann (2013)
LS [1] Weeks (2015)

QB - The Texans need to bring in a couple of arms into camp. Possibly 3, if Schaub can't participate fully. I expect one to be vet.
RB - There will be a need for a 3rd RB, and I expect 2 or 3 signed.
FB - Is Casey staying at FB? If not, expect a couple to be signed. This might be true even if Casey stays.
WR - There are a lot of guys under contract, but I expect the Texans to take another in the 1st 3 rounds. Possibly another late (or UDFA) that has return abilities.
TE - Woefully thin. At least one will be drafted, even if Casey is moved back. They also need a true blocking TE.
T - Both starters have expiring contracts in 2012. This is why I expect one OT to be taken in the initial 3 rounds.
G - They need a couple bodies in camp. I would like to see someone brought in to compete at RG (vet preferably). But, I'm not sure the Texans feel that way.
C - I would expect another C signed as an UDFA. Wade Smith might become Myers backup, in case of injury.
NT - I expect a player brought into camp, but it doesn't seem as if this is a draft priority for the Texans.
DE - I would expect a mid round pick used here for depth purposes.
OLB - They need more bodies in camp, and probably a draft pick in the top half of the draft.
ILB - They might need to find a starter, preferably a vet. If so, still look at the mid rounds for depth.
CB - I would like to see a vet brought in to compete, but that may not be practical. Otherwise, maybe a couple of UDFAs to take reps in camp.
S - Not real happy with the depth situation, but the Texans may only be able to address the position in the late rounds or with UDFAs.
K - They need someone. Maybe one vet and one rookiw to battle in camp.
P - With Hartmann's injury and pending suspension, expect someone signed. Maybe a couple of UDFAs.
LS - Weeks is the guy.

@ Lucky

A few points I might dispute but for the most part I cant disagree - too much going on to go into depth.

Life is kickin me in the balls.
