I think the Texans will work out a deal with Duane Brown before the franchise tag deadline. Then use the tag on Barwin, and re-sign Schaub to a decent QB deal. I really don't think Schaub will get much interest around the league at the age of 31, and having completed only 2 of 5 season with the Texans so far. I'm sure he will get offers, I just don't think it will be anything the Texans can't match.

I wouldn't be surprised if Brown gets an extension in the middle of this season. Something with a nice big signing bonus. Barwin getting tagged would force him to work out a deal with the team, and I think they can do that. I'm not too worried about the team's continuity right now, but if Schaub plays 16 games and some playoffs this season, we may be forced to tag him instead.

I don't know if they'll all go but I'll bet that several will. They can also save some money by replacing James or Dobbins at ILB with a 3-5 round rookie from next years draft since that position will rotate out of the game so often. Hopefully we also get an injury discount from Schaub who hopefully also knows that we'll be trying to re-sign his primary blind side protection. I think next years offseason has the possibility to have alot more cost saving cuts than this years. This will be where Rick Smith earns his money and shows us if he's stepped up to the level of the upper echelon GM's or not.
I, also would like to see the 3 back but somebody needs to show me the money. I'm not taking time now but other than maybe Smith & OD I doubt there would be enough money in cutting those guys to sign Brown Butler & Schaub. Matt alone should get a $5m/year increase. Why should Matt give us a discount? QBs are a premium & teams will be lining the Brinks truck up at his door. Not saying he gets a Marfio deal but there will be great offers.

Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing are both scheduled to be free agents in 2014. Either one of them could set the market for the other, so it may be worth it to lock up Cush next offseason to avoid matching some outrageous contract that Clay gets.

BB, what do you think of Justin Hunter-WR from Tennessee instead of DaRick Rogers? I just got finished watching several videos of them both and it seems to me that Hunter is the better athlete. I noticed that Hunter catches the ball with his hands and that Rogers to often makes body catches, also Hunter seems to have a smoother athelticism about him than Rogers and seems to run better routes, though it is a limited video sampling. I know Hunter had the ACL injury last year and that Rogers has a year on him since Hunter will only be a junior next year but if he goes pro after next season Hunter looks to me to be the better pick of the 2. Opinions?

You have a good eye sir, and his 33 receptions in two years does not give much to form opinion yet for me. Tennessee has a lot to find out this season. Will Junior Zach Rogers step up? Will Da'Rick be able to step away from the coaching issues and have a great season? Hunter is just one of at least 3 to watch. Hopefully, he will be 100% after the ACL and offer
another high selction in the draft.

I think the $$$$ are going to be there.

If not, Antonio/Wade Smith could be candidates to be cut. You do whatever it takes to sign an all pro like Cushing. He's the top inside LB in the league. IMHO

You dont cut players like Cushing over $$$$.

I don't understand how you can project the figures you used? $100m was from Buffalo, Texans offer was never considered by anyone to be anywhere near that high. You have to subtract the known current salary cap of Texans roster from 2012 NFL cap.

First, Cushing is under contract just to reiterate. Apprx salaries for 2012 Wade Smith $2m + Antonio's $5.5m= $7m to offer Cushing this season to extend or to go to either Schaub, Barwin or D. Brown. Also, as far as we know the NFL cap is to be about the same $123m. We were at that last season and we have escalator contracts to pay in 2012 + rookies and UDFAs.

There was $ supposedly from AJ re-negotiating, loss of Briesel, 2 back up QBs,
Winston, JJ, Ryans,etc. that did not go for Mario. My understanding is that was supposed to extend Brown ($2m for 2011) & he will take $8-$10m extra.

Matt $7m+ will want another $5m & maybe more if he takes team deep in P.O.s.

Barwin at about $1m if he does what we expect will want at least a $5m bump if not more.
That is approx $18m more than last year's total team salary costs. Where is that coming from? I want all these guys back, just don't see how.

Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU*
Has a quick first step, but will need to add bulk to be more than a rush specialist. Mingo could be the Aldon Smith of the 2013 NFL Draft.

http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2013-nfl-mock-draft
I love Barrett jones for this team but he does have an extensive injury history. Mingo is being compared to Dwight freeney and they are saying he's most likely going to ten and (because of his measurables ) possibly top 3 or 4.

The easy answer is if MS gets hurt again you let him walk. I dont know the $$$$ figures, but cutting Cody + whatever Barwins salary was last yr, added together should get you in the ballpark.

I do know the good teams find ways to structure their contracts so that they can keep 10 or so top tier players of their own under contract. (Philly/Pittsburgh/New England/NYG etc...) I expect the Texans FO/cap guy to be able to structure contract like those teams do.

Maybe that's too much to expect.

Have not been in this forum for a while so missed your post. I respect your opinion but you and others keep identifying money to resign certain players. The problem with that is we have other players of great importance to make a decision on. Cutting the Smiths (A&W, did you see what I did there lol.) should take care of Cushing if that is way to go. However this year is last for Cody, Barwin, Duane Brown and Barwin.

However this year is last for Cody, Barwin, Duane Brown and Barwin.
Brown has been a very good player in a premium position. Quality LTs don't grow on trees and athletic ones who fit Kubes' style are also fairly rare. As such, I fully expect Brown to get a new contract this summer.

I also expect Cush to get a new deal. He has played well for a couple of years and is the 3 down LB in the 3-4. He should get a new contract sometime before the season.

Barwin has had 1 good year. If he has another good year, I expect the team to offer him a reasonable deal. One thing to remember is his stats may go down. I expect Watt and Reed to have a bigger presence than last year in their second season. Also, last year pretty much only Reed and barwin were the OLBs. This year, Whitney Mercilus joins the group. So, I would not be surprised if Barwin's stats decrease even if his play improves. Since this would only be his second year(and I think his stats decrease), he likely will not get a stupid money deal like Mario. As such, as long as its reasonable, I think the team can keep him.

Cody will likely not get a new deal and will hit the market as a FA. I expect him to be offered a vets contract and for him to go elsewhere.

I would not be surprised to see Antonio Smith cut to free up cash.

Schaub will need to prove himself on the field. He needs to prove he is back to being the prolific passer and not the guy with injury concerns. If he can put in a full 16 week regular season schedule and start every game for the Texans in the Playoffs, then he may get the contract he wants. If he misses a few games, has to be replaced by TJ, is struggling, or is in anyway hampered, he may not be tendered a new contract at all.

will not receive new contract offers this year.

I think Wade's system is set up for the rush to come from any defensive position but I also think historically one OLB gets majority of sacks. I do expect barring injury for Barwin to have majority of sacks & to be offered a huge deal. Same with Schaub, 16 healthy games or not; just offer for each may not be from Texans. Stupid money does not have to be Mario dollars just more than Texans will pay.

Thanks for responding.

E. Shawn Cody is not re-signed.
F. Posey is or is not successful, we still draft a replacement for WR1 to train.

1. WR Da'Rick Rogers Tennesse (junior) 6'3" 215 He is noted to have "issues" but facts are the 2010 disorderly conduct & resisting arrest after a cop was knocked out were dismissed. He had a run in with strength coach & threatened him & was banned from off season activities for two weeks. Never suspended. Coach McKeefery was in his first year with Tenn & is a former Army performance coordinator Special Forces so may be a tad gung ho. Also note that Tenn Vols hired 7 new assistants. I think Rogers will do fine but expect him to enter draft after this season. He might be better than any WR in 2012 draft.

See this link on his 40 speed: http://www.eagleseyeblog.com/2012-ar...at-counts.html

Back in 2009, as expected, several prospects stood out. One of these young men, wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, ran a blistering 4.34 40-yard dash at a mind boggling 6'2, 197-lbs. *Note this is a hand held device.

2. FS Robert Lester Alabama 6' 210 4.51 I had him as a late first 2012 after a 8INTs 2010. He "dropped off" 2011: 2 INTs but was close on others. He plays excellent (continued)
Martin's worth has not been proven yet but he seems to be doing well. I still want a WR to groom for our eventual WR1. Unfortunately, I still see Posey as a late season to 2013 season at best. His lack of a season playing last year really hurt. If he was all that anyway.

Well, so far you're 1 outta 6 on who stays and who goes. But it's early. As for getting a WR in the 1st, I'm not sure they will go that route, especially with someone who's been in trouble with the law . At least I hope not. If they do it means a lot went wrong this coming season with AJ, Jean, K-Mart, and Posey. I'm pulling for them to go after a big and fast TE with good hands and good blocking skills in the 1st (hopefully at #32 ). We are getting kinda thin at TE now and if OD goes down we could be in for trouble. That would leave only GG and Thor left, and we need Thor as FB also.

I do agree we need a NT and I hope we get one early. Maybe in round 2. But I'm also thinking they may go after an ILB and possibly another OLB if Barwin does leave.

Please see my new 203 mocj posted last night. Much has changed since I posted this thread as we all knew it would. Posey is still a concern and today's Houton Chronicle (August 23rd) addresses Posey's rust. I am cool with AJ/Walter and Martin. If Jean can develop, even better. However I did a Virginia Tech WR, TE and a Nose in re-modeled mock. Our opinions of course will change as the season and team progresses.
