Thanks for the info!

Would love that draft. Especially the first 3 picks. Do you really think Fisher will be there in the 3rd?

good question on Fisher who is currently ranked #70 and a reason I had Drango in second on my last mock;decided to return to Douglas as my fall back. Douglas is much better than his ranking and you should watch him pull at his size! TBH, I am thinking that Smith may go spend some money on a high quality RT which would decrease need for early OT. Then I'd look at WR Rashad Green if there or WR Justin Hardy.

Season over:

Brooks Reed, wanted to bring him back but 2.56 tackles per game not doing it for me although seemed to end the season being more of a player. I do not bring him back but team might if he accepts nachos and a 12 pack.

I'd like to see Tuggle moved back to OLB 6'3 249 and Mohamed to left ILB.

Can Hal be our kick returner? He did fairly well at Vanderbilt.

Is Ben Jones ready to move to Center?

Myers said in an interview that Houston is his home and he'd like to continue playing here. But he recognizes the game is a business and accepts that he might be released.

Everything I saw says it's supposed to be $140 mill or a bit higher. Texans should have $8-10 million without cuts or restructures

Will he get blown up less at center than at guard?

A lot of his problems seem to be cranial flatulence and that's about the last thing you want in a center, just edging out looking like Pee Wee Herman.

yep, center should be the most intelligent player on the field. I don't think Jones can handle it

Maybe so, but he played the position and made the line calls for four years at Georgia. And we need to resign Newton and Jackson, at a minimum, and that's going to take maybe $10M in cuts elsewhere. I see Myers and Graham as candidates for the ax.

I'm thinking most of our FAs will return as excitement of new coaches + Ws versus last season have them drooling to push on. If fans do the "what if we had just won..or if Clowney ...or if we had just had a consistent, healthy QB.." so do the players. Not to get too kool aidey here but if the picks from '14 return healthy AND play as hoped for + we have another good draft (barring injuries)we should have very good, deep roster. I think the Oline like the system (we could do better with Oline coach) and if X and Brooks solidify..whooee.

Jackson is only one I am concerned about as I have been saying a team or two will offer him big $. A recent listen on radio found several talking heads saying same thing including this boards favorite whipping boy, John McClain. This is why on my OP above I move Joseph and use that $8.5m. I just realized last night that I had not taken his dead $ into account so would have to add $3.75m to cap.

Johnathan Joseph's cap hit for 2015 would be $12.25M. If you're calculating $8.5M in savings, then you're already accounting for the $3.75M in dead money.

If you figure our current cap is at $129M with Joseph & the 2015 cap will be set at $140M, that's $11M we have to work with. Cutting Joseph will add $8.5M to that number for $19M.

No need to add the dead money.

I would hope so but only coaches know that one. Ben Jones last year is 2015 & since his value at starting LG has been established and he will use a renewed Newton's deal to negotiate upwards. I'd love to see X start and Jones move to b/up center but no reason to think that will occur.

How about if Myers is given a new 3 year deal this off season thru 2017 lowering his cap hit? He will be 36 Sept of that year. Love him or not the guy just keeps on starting.

Hopefully if they Cushing will restructure to add a bit, try and restructure AJ, team needs to luck out on Ryan Mallett really, if he signs for Fitz money for 3 years and proves to be what some think he can be then we are going to be a good team for a long time.

It's time for Rick Smith to make some great contract moves, if he can pull down the cap number on the likes of AJ, Cushing and JoJo then we can bring in a couple of mid range FAs to make this team a better fit for OBs plans and then give draftees the time to develop.

If Mallett is crap, or they screw this golden opportunity to get the cap under control then the regime won't pan out imho. It's make or break.
