I just tweeted that. I think the media is going to slobber all over us next season. When are the National TV dates out?

Yup. That cap is going to SKYROCKET. We're about to head back, in a way, to how it used to be in the 90s when everyone good pretty much stayed good, until they got old.

Indeed, it would be really nice if we could find a way to get one or two of these guys to play for sweet FA next season in return for them getting paid bigtime next season onwards.

Given the way the money game is played in the league though, as well as the injury possibilities, its understandable that they might not want to.

They could do that with Foster if they sign him to a tender, as he's an restricted free agent. Of course, you lose the risk of a team offering him a big deal and being willing to give up the draft picks to get him...

Don't see how we can risk that. A team with a 1at round pick in the mid to high twenties can easily make an offer to snag Foster. They only have to give up a 1 since the new cba, not a 1 and 3 any more. A front-loaded offer will be almost impossible for us to match given our cap predicament. Want to give up Arian for the e.g. 28th pick? Not me... I think we need to franchise him this year.

Teams picking that high don't normally screw off money and draft picks. How many of them actually need a RB? How many can handle a poison pill contract, even for one year?

Correct...which is why they'll always be a crappy team to play for. $42M under the cap for a reason. Hence the normally part of my comment.

Pretty sure most teams in the back part of the draft would be happy to trade their first pick for a player of Foster's caliber even if they have to sign him to a big deal. Running backs may not be drafted as high as they once were, but stud running backs still make NFL coaches panties wet.

Something Ive pointed out here on TT a dozen times or more ..... They cankeep MW , Foster , Myers & Briesel with some creative structuring of contracts pushing money into the 2013 & 2014 seasons when the cap is expected to escalate considerably. Its reported the 2013 capcould beas much as $180m .... And teams must spend 90% of the cap figure.

The bold tells me a bunch of marginal players are going to get a whole lot more money than they are worth .... No reason not to structure deals for the Texans FA's as well as restructuring current contracts to absorb some of that must spend space in those cap years , especially those that are key pieces to the machine.
If done properly they will still have plenty of cap space to resign the important pieces in next years FA crop which includes Connor Barwin , Shaun Cody , Bryan Braman , Duane Brown , Rashad Butler , Antoine Caldwell , James Casey , Brice McCain , Jesse Nading , Troy Nolan , Glover Quin & Matt Schaub.


If you think this season is rough for the Texans as far as FA goes ....Just take a look at that list for next season again ....
