Linebacker Peter Boulware left Cleveland on Thursday afternoon without a contract and headed to Seattle.

"I think he should go check it out in Seattle," Browns General Manager Phil Savage at a Canton Browns Backers event at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "I think everybody will have a better idea of where everyone stands after that."

Savage said Boulware's physical in Cleveland was not a pass/fail situation, but "it's more that you have to project can he play full time or be a situational player."
Reading between the lines I'd say that means Boulware wants to be paid as a three down LB, possibly even a relatively highly paid one and may not be a three down player anymore.

I think what's happening is that no team wants to make the first offer. They probably don't want to overpay so they're waiting for another team to move first.

Agreed it seems like the Texans and Browns both are evaluating that health is an issue. Definately not worth serious money and gauarantees of being a fulltime player.

Browns | Nothing to Happen too Soon with Boulware - from www.KFFL.com
Mon, 6 Jun 2005 06:34:13 -0700

Jeff Schudel, of the News-Herald, the Cleveland Browns plan to see what happens with the Seattle Seahawks before making their next move regarding free agent LB Peter Boulware (Ravens). They would prefer giving him a contract with a low base salary and heavy with incentives. "I don't expect anything to happen soon," head coach Romeo Crennel said. Crennel also indicated he was disappointed the Browns could not workout Boulware when he visited last week.

He's probably a better fit for the Seahawks anyway, at this point. He might be a 3-down 4-3 DE, but he's not a 3-down 3-4 OLB any more. They need a replacement for Okeafor now; we to some extent and the Browns to a larger one are still building for the future.

I dont have ESPN-Inside - but they are reporting on the front ESPN splash page that Boulware has left Seattle also without a contract.

IMO think like others have said that it seems everyone is waiting for the first person to blink and have devalued him accordingly. Now we will see where he wants to go for real and how much money is a part of the deal.

Yes. I was listening to a local sports radio show here in College Station earlier today and they did mention that Boulware had left Seattle without a contract. They also mentioned their opinion that Boulware would be the last piece needed in the Texans defensive puzzle, and we are showing pretty high interest in him.

yeah i wouldnt mind getting, i am really suprised we have focused so much on defense this season, i know it was struggling but i figured with the kinda division we're in, we'd wanna keep up with the offensive power houses. BUT its good we're working on defense i'd rather have a balanced team rather than an awesome offensive one with a dead last defense.

NFL | Big Money Not There for Boulware
Fri, 24 Jun 2005 19:12:13 -0700

John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports free agent LB Peter Boulware (Ravens) is struggling to get an offer in excess of $1 million in the post-May free agency market. Reportedly, some teams remained concerned with Boulware's health. Boulware hasn't played in more than a year due to knee and toe injuries.

Our defense ranked near the bottom in more than a few areas last year - not to mention we have yet to produce a season where we have put any kind of serious pressureon the QB on a regular consistant basis. Thus a bigger focus on the defense this year IMO.

If we can get Boulware on the cheap and sign him to a 1 year or 2 year deal I say we do it. We need another good veteran on the field and since Peek hasnt been able to practice with the team much yet this season because of injuries himself, having Boulware would be a nice bit of insurance on the teams part.

Playing GM - I would offer him a 3 yr vet min deal w/incentives to escalate based on performance. Add a nice little bonus to get him here. Shows a commitment on our part, but were not signing him to a huge deal either.

if he is struggling to get a deal at 1 mil a season, then I sign him and then possible use nis as trading bait after the next season. Especially if he does well this year.

I'd rather have Anthony Simmons.

Simmons is inconsistent and he's nicked up.

but

Boulware is on the decline and is coming back from a serious injury and has already lost a step or two.

The texans should focus on the O-line if they are going to sign another free agent, but, if they are still obsessed with signing linebackers, they should not sign Boulware.

Reasons why the Texans should sign Boulware instead of Simmons:
1. Simmons hasn't played in a full season since 2001
2. Simmons doesn't fit into the 3-4
3. Boulware would provide good depth at OLB, which we don't have (unless you're a Charlie Anderson fan)
4. We lost a lot of veteran leadership when we released Glenn, but Boulware could assume that role

We probably won't sign either though...

Since you're so "obsessed" with signing OL guys, who's out there that you think could help? Verba? hahaha

OT - Chris Terry, I've read quite a few articles that stated he had the feet to play LT. I know he's got a record as being an off-field problem......but, we might as well bring him in, since we already brought in Riley and he's an even bigger head-case. And I don't think Terry wants as much money as the "37million dollar man" Verba.

And about Simmons not fitting into a 3-4..........so your telling me that Morlon Greenwood is a perfect fit in a 3-4 ?

Phil Savage said it best and Savage was one of the guys that drafted him. When Boulware went to the Browns for a physical, Phil told him to go to Seattle. Don't expect Boulware to sign with anyone until possibly training camp if an injury forces a team to make a move for him. He is still a month away from working out.

"With even his most ardent suitors still harboring concerns about his recovery from knee and toe surgeries, four-time Pro Bowl linebacker Peter Boulware is considering having a workout this month for all the teams that have indicated an interest in him."

I agree that the Texans should not sign Boulware, but I feel we should get faster at the linebacker and d-line positions.

I agree the Texans should get faster at the l-backer and d-line position. Not to mention get more aggressive on offense.
