Default Mike Wallace to the Texans Petition

Who else would love to see the Texans give up their #26 pick and sign Mike Wallace from the Steelers?

Default Re: Mike Wallace to the Texans Petition

as much as i would love to have mike wallace i just dont see the texans doing it. I see them drafting a WR. Him along with AJ on the same field would cause major problems for opoosing defenses for sure.

Where are we going to get 8-10 million dollars to sign him? The dude isn't going to be taken away from the Steelers any time soon, they have the right to match the offer as well.

Default Re: Mike Wallace to the Texans Petition

I just don't see a lot of options for the Texans at #26. I think Kevin Walter is going to start over anyone they could draft at that spot, and if the Texans go OLB or DT or offensive line at #26, they won't draft a receiver until the second round and they will probably be #4 on the depth chart behind Jacoby.

Kubiak wants his receivers to know the offensive an show great effort and blocking in the run game, and that is something jones and Walter do well. I think whoever gets drafted by the Texans is not going to see a lot of playing time the first year.

Our system needs some experience to get used to. Wallace wouldn't be an automatic starter which would be just a waste of cap space. Better off with a rook for cap space reasons.

Wallace would start from day 1.

Not sure what some of you are talking about.

I don't know the Texans cap space figures, but from everything I've heard/read it doesn't appear that this would be a move we could make...but I donno for sure

I think any veteran receiver with nfl experience would be an automatic starter, I just don't think a rookie out of college would.

I see where you're coming from, but as other members have said, Wallace will cost too much cheddar for the Texans right now. I mean, hell, they are not even going after Early Doucet. Ya know why?

Uncle Bob made it very clear that the Texans would not go after a FA WR. Instead, he said they would go after a WR in the draft. Bob also placed an emphasis on speed for said WR.

The more I think about it this leads me to believe three things:

1.) Contrary to what I wanted the Texans will take a WR in the 1st round if the guy they want is there.

2.) Because of this, whichever WR they draft they'll want to start right away (see every 1st rounder almost anyone has ever drafted).

3.) Bob's words eliminates several bigger names in the 1st round due to sub-par 40s - which is fine, because the quicker guys (at least by combine or pro day numbers) might just fall as low as #26.

In short, Bob's especially in the know about this year's draft, and he's made that clear. And although Uncle Bob is not one to generally force his will on his GM and coach, it sounds like to me they've already reach a quorum.

If Dale and Shane could die, then anything could happen with the Texans this year. Just as the mayans predicted.

What is this place coming to???

Geez Louise.

Why would we pay Mike Wallace upwards of 8 or 9 or 10 million when we can draft and pay a rookie WR a paltry rookie salary for like, oh I don't know...four years?

We also have Lestar Jean for those with short memories. He was turning into a preseason sensation before getting hurt and I.R.'d. Him and Yates were clickin' like boneless chicken in the preseason.

Has boredom reduced us to this? Stay strong out there, guys. Meet back here tomorrow and run your thread ideas through me before posting them. I will help sort out the good ideas from the bad ideas.

In direct answer to your question:

Not me.

I'd rather have the draft pick. A first round WR pick would be less expensive (Wright would give us Wallace-type speed AND a kick returner). And if we don't go WR, we need a quality OL or OLB with that pick. Since this WR draft class if fairly deep, we could get a quality guy in the 2nd round.

Lastly, and I admit less important, I want that comp pick for giving up Mario. Signing Wallace - even if we had the cap room - may well negate that comp pick.
