Don't tell me you wouldn't want the Texans to consider those guys. Or do they also pale in comparison to Antwan Peek?

Not that it matters, but Peter Boulware's birthday is 12/18/74. Which would make him 30 years of age until Week 15 of the '05 season. So if you're going to repeatedly post his age, you may as well get it right. FWIW, Boulware says he's healthy & has a couple of more good years left. I think Casserly would be derelict in his duty as GM if he didn't bring Boulware in for a physical & gauge his interest in joining the team. Here are some reasonable facts that are undeniable: Peter Boulware has 67.5 career sacks. Antwan Peek has 3 career sacks. I don't think I'd "hound" any team that was wise enough to sign Boulware.
Sorry I was only 7 months off on his birthday, that makes a huge difference. Jason Taylor & Simeon Rice didn't miss a whole season last year and aren't comming off a major knee injury and I wouldn't know if they pale in comparison to peek, those are your words not mine since I've never said anything like that. Also of course Boulware is going to say he has a couple of years left in him, WHAT player wouldn't say that especialy when he is looking for a new team and contract. Sapp said the same thing last year and so did Eddie G. I find it completely ridiculous that when we cut sharper, who is about the same age and hasn't had a major knee injury or any other for that matter, people say he was getting to old and has lost a step, but when yall talk about Boulware, its "he is going to be great and a force". Look yall can disagree with me all yall want, but if he does come here and isn't like the player he was, the same people that are clammering for his services are going to be saying how stupid it was to sign him at the kind of money and conract he is going to demand, that is main reason I'm skitish about signing him.

I say we bring him in for a visit to see what shape he is in and if he is in good shape then we should bring him in for a reasonable price

If Boulware plays every game and plays well and also Babin stays healthy and plays well then it was a good signing. Furthermore, when Peek becomes a FA after 2006, how much money do you think people will offer a career backup with a handful of sacks who was drafted in the third round?

There are many "career backups" that are offered money by other teams because they realize the potential that the play has and hasnt been given a chance to show it. If Peek does not start this season then there is no reason for the Texans to be making it very difficult for another team to sign him next season. I think there would be plenty of teams willing to give up a third rounder for him, because they know what he could do. If the texans want to tender him higher than that, then he is worth something and he should be the starter. The problem with this message board is that all of these rumors start, everyone gets all worked up, and they change their minds every other day about how they feel about players. They need to learn to form an opinion and stick with it.

Noone's opinion of Peek has changed, but the chance to get a guy who has performed at a pro-bowl level does change the situation Peek could be in. You are suggesting not seeing the whole picture.

I was looking at the Texans web site. I know Moreno has been signed for a long time in all but when i saw his signing on the box below the main screen i started wondering what is the possibility that Moreno and Greenwood could start on the inside and Wong and Babin on the outside. I know we have been talking about Peek and how he deserves the oppertunity to play but does anyone else here think Moreno will land an inside LB job and Wong and Peek will fight over the outside position? This was an idea that just popped up in my head and i was wondering what some of you thought about it. I serious doubt we will land Boulware anyways buti think Peek will have his work cut out for him since the Moreno signing. I think Moreno is starting quality player.

I could definately see that happening, but I heard Wong was moving into the inside, but after Moreno was officially signed that could be changing. I also like Moreno and I think he will just get better.

I hope Moreno and Peek turn out to be steals and both live up to the potential that some see in them. Peek sure looked good at times last year and he also looked like an undiscliplined player too, which could win or lose you games.

The thing about PB is that he is a proven player with a Super Bowl ring. All he has to prove now is that he still has "it" and that he has completely rehabed his injury.

Charlie Casserly has to make the decision that he fits with the Texans salary cap situation, now and in the future, and that the injury is healed and has not effected his playmaking ability.

If Boulware comes in here and gets sacks like a madman then I am sure everyone would be happy; and if he didn't many would say to CC "I told you so!".

Boulware is coming of some bad injuries. I am hesitant in taking him, but if we brought him in as a nickel pass rusher then I am all for it. Peek will be playing full time now and to lessen his load and we could put in Boulware. This would also allow Boulware time to get over some of those injuries. But once again, it all comes down to money, money,money, money........money.

Texans | Boulware Visits - from www.KFFL.com
Tue, 17 May 2005 18:51:23 -0700

Brent Jones, reports for the Baltimore Sun, free agent LB Peter Boulware (Ravens) visited with the Houston Texans Tuesday, May 17.


hmmm...could be a Texan? Our depth would be so so lovely at LB if we signed him.

Texans | More on Boulware Visit - from www.KFFL.com
Tue, 17 May 2005 20:02:22 -0700

Updating a previous story, Carlton Thompson, reports for the Houston Chronicle, free agent LB Peter Boulware (Ravens) took a physical when he visited the Houston Texans, Tuesday, May 17. How things will progress from this point is unclear. The Texans want to make sure they are satisfied with the health of Boulware's right knee and toe, which had injuries that contributed to him missing all of last season. Money will be an important factor as well. "Anytime there's an experienced player that has had experience in the league and becomes available, you always look at him," Texans head coach Dom Capers said. "That's basically what we're dealing with. We've just talked. That's basically where we are at." "I am healthy," Boulware said. "I'm ready to play. It's just a matter of me going on the field and proving it."
Why not give him a shot? I like him and I think he would start if he got signed... but if Peek plays better and gets the spot than I still wouldn't be mad with picking him up. Depth can never be a bad thing.

I wouldn't be against signing him and letting him compete for a starting job. I would let him know up front that he isn't guaranteed to start, but he would have the opportunity to win the starting job. It would be up to him to prove that he is better than what we already have.

Thannks for the info 881 and I too believe we should give him a shot provided he withstands all the doctors scrutiny and we can get him for a reasonable price with no long term consequences.

We probably could, but we'd be cutting it really close...According to HPF, we're about 7.5M under the cap...Rookies will take up about 2.5M of that, and Franks would probably want at least 3M a year, leaving 2M for Boulware, and I anticipate him wanting more than that...It's possible, but far from probable...
