Default Texans look for help at linebacker

LINK

Quote:
After ranking near the bottom of the NFL in sacks each of the past three seasons, the Texans are in desperate need of an outside pass rusher. After being released by the Baltimore Ravens last week, Peter Boulware is an outside linebacker in need of a team.

Sounds like a good match. That is, if the Texans are satisfied with the health of Boulware's right knee and toe, which had injuries that contributed to him missing all of last season. There's also the matter of money, which played a part in the Ravens releasing their all-time sack leader.

Boulware visited the Texans and underwent a physical examination Tuesday. How things will progress from this point is unclear.

"Anytime there's an experienced player that has had experience in the league and becomes available, you always look at him," Texans coach Dom Capers said. "That's basically what we're dealing with. We've just talked. That's basically where we are at."

The Texans are prepared to enter the season with Antwan Peek and Jason Babin as their starting outside linebackers, but as general manager Charley Casserly demonstrated in his pursuit of St. Louis Rams left tackle Orlando Pace, he's willing to explore the possibility of acquiring elite talent.

The "Texans grab Boulware" thread was removed until a verifiable source is found.

I am just curious? How far along id the process if a player comes in for a physical? Does that mean they have a sort of an entry number that might be worked out or is there a more solid agreement? I was just curious if anyone has an idea.

Let's just let that die. It may or may not be true, but defaming members due to their age or ethnicity is uncalled for & won't be tolerated. When someone hears or sees something, post it with a source.

This Boulware is a very unusual guy in this contemporay world of wealthy
sports celebriies, in fact maybe one of a kind . According to this link from
a Baltimore paper, he doesn't believe in pre-marital sex. No kidding !
"He never publicly criticized his teammates and was always the same mild-mannered guy after a big loss or a big win. He found time for fans. There were no pretenses about Boulware. He didn't need a flashy car, a flamboyant pre-game dance or an exuberant touchdown celebration.
True story: Boulware didn't believe in pre-marital sex. He took some good-natured ribbing from teammates but never changed his mind.
While some of his teammates laughed at him, they also had an immense amount of respect for Boulware because he was firm in his beliefs. Boulware was a regular at team Bible study and on the circuit for mentoring kids. "

He sounds like he is going to fit in on this team if he signs. Good character guy to teach Babin and Peek.

He gives us versatility for the linebackers as we can rotate the linebackers on the outside to really confuse the opposing offense.

ESPN's John Clayton reports former Baltimore Ravens LB Peter Boulware is clearly the hottest player available in the market. He was released last week by the Ravens. He made his first team visit Tuesday, having a physical for the Houston Texans. The visit apparently went well and Boulware surprised the team a little by how well he did in the physical. Eight teams made initial calls on Boulware after he was released. A lot of people in the Ravens organization believe he will end up in Cleveland. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are hopeful to recruit him and they have a lot of ammunition. First, Boulware's brother, Michael, is the team's starting strong safety. Second, the Seahawks play a 4-3 defense, and Boulware would like to be an end in a 4-3 scheme

If this is correct it probably means Boulware thinks he has lost a step and will have a hard time being a starting OLB.

Probably because Peek didn't get the same playing opportunities as Babin. The Texans invested a 1st round pick in Babin and basically handed him the starting job because of that high investment. Had Peek been afforded the same 1 year learning process as Babin it might be different.

1st rounder or not everyone proves what they can or cannot do on the practice field. Peek didn't prove he was a starting caliber player.

No one but the coaches knows what Peek did or didn't do in practice what we do know is be it special teams or a 1-3rd down Peek showed the internsity on the field of a starter and furthermore if he starts i think his numbers will be better than Babins.

His sack total should be better than Babins if he starts... He'll play the weakside while Babin will play the strongside sense Babin plays the run so well.

The team has given young players time if they can play. Glenn Earl was a 4th round rookie last year and he has more career starts than Peek, so Peek obviously hasn't earned his time before now.

Babin had a really solid season last year and had a solid stat line. He compared favorably to other LOLB's in other 3-4 systems.

My point was not to say Peek is better than Babin, my point was that getting Boulware could make for some extreme pass rush if you put both him and Peek on the field somehow at the same time.
