I am not going to believe it til I see it.

I am too used to FAs using us as leverage to get the money they want from the team they really wanna be on.

It is also reported that Boulware really wants to play for the Colts due to them being a super bowl contender at this time.

If we were to get him, it would definately be an undisputed upgrade. It would also be at least 5 sacks added to the total IMO. Coming off of an injury year, he'll be the right price.

I'm not at all convinced that would be true either for this year or the future. Boulware is 31 now. Baltimore runs their 3-4 somewhat differently and I don't think he has been asked to drop into coverage near as much as we expect our LB's to drop. In addition, if you put him in as the starter you might as well wad up the 3rd round pick used on Peek and chuck it--his time to show he has it or does not is now.

Honestly, I think the Texans have unwadded that pick already. They have turned to unproven talent at every position when given the opportunity and Peek really is the only guy that they have "waited on" to develop.

I have no issue with them getting Boulware as long it is some incentive ladden prove you are healthy and as somewhat close to your reputation offer. Overall, of the guys that the Texans have had any interest in for that spot, he is the only one with a history of playing in any type of 3-4 and has proven that, IF HEALTHY, he can sack the QB.

I don't disagree with some of that, but who do we have behind Peek? Our LB depth is pathetic. I guess my question is would PB sign under the terms that he would not be handed the starting assignment, and would compete with Peek in camp, with the loser coming off the bench? Why shouldn't Peek have to earn his spot?

If we signed Boulware, I'm sure he would be a situational player at this point in his career.

Boulware, who has not played in more than 16 months because of knee and toe injuries, was expected to take a diminished role with the Ravens this season.

I think though, that even Boulware understands he probably isn't going to be a starter at this point in his career, but then again you never know.

Don't get me wrong folks. I wouldn't mind Boulware coming to the Texans. My post was in response to someone saying he would be an immediate substantial upgrade. I don't think that is true, but of course Peek or anyone should have to earn their starting job. My bet is if he came here it would be for a depth/situational player, not as an obvious starter.

Boulware has yet to play a single snap from his Dec. 21, 2003 injury (and the following surgery) - he carries a certain amount of risk. I can't see bringing him in other than a situational guy you may hope can give you starter quality play.

Well, if he understands his role (ie competes for a starter spot, but more likely the first guy off the bench) AND the price is right, I think he would be a substantial upgrade. An upgrade from a depth position that is. Of course, he is a risk as Vinny says, due to injury concerns and age. But, I don't like our OLB depth right now. If Peek underperforms, or if Babin or Peek have a long term injury, we are in deep doodoo.

I have to disagree here. I think you have to remember an established athlete's EGO and him just saying i'm taking a backseat like that I can't see. If he was ok with taking a reduced role he would have stayed with the RAVENS.

As far as signing with us i'm AGAINST it. We have no DEPTH? We have 17 LB's on our roster. There better be some DEPTH somewhere in there or we been wasting money.

I think if we have made the decision to go with youth let's not go against that now by signing a 31 yr old LB. If we sign him we might has well have kept foreman and sharper and glenn.

In reguards to his age (which is similar to Sharpers), do you think he would get more than Sharper got in Seattle?

I don't care if we have 3143 LB's on our roster if they can't play. Maybe I should have stated QUALITY depth, since that seemed to go over your head. As for his ego, all athletes have an ego. They all want to start. They should. Would you rather have a LB come in with the idea that he will warm the bench, and bring water out to the guys during timeouts? I hope he comes in here (if he signs) with the idea that he will start. That will push Peek, and no matter who wins, the team is the better for it.

Not a chance he get's sharper money. He hasn't played in forever due to injuries it seems like. I dont think anyone is going to pay him what sharper got. We didnt release sharper b/c of injuries or inability to play. We did b/c his cap # was huge and we were going with youth.
