    Do the Texans make any moves in the last 58 minutes here or do you think they let Banks, Payne, Simmons, Bell, Deloach, Sears, Spears, McCree and others test the market?

    I don't want to see Payne gone, or Simmons and Bell.

    Banks is a solid backup...but he wants to test the market.

    I don't know...Im very confused about a good amount of the players not being tendered yet.

    You really think Banks could find a starting job somewhere? Out of the whole bunch the only one I want to see back is McCree. All the rest of them could walk. The Texans will sit around and sign some low key FA's while the rest of the 31 NFL teams go player crazy.

    The O-line has been a problem since the Texans existance. Mostly because of the Boselli disaster IMO. It is taking this organization longer to recover from that mistake than they are willing to admit. Smart money says they won't do ANYTHING with the O-Line this year either. The Texans #1 pick will be going into his 4th season already and the O-Line is STILL a big ?

    We didn't lose a pick or a player by taking a chance on Boselli. We were the only team in the expansion draft so it was just like signing a street FA who never played. If we gave up a pick or traded a player I'd agree.

    From cnnsi.com. Looks like McCree may go to the Dolphins.
     
  18. By not signing so many of our Free Agent players, the bluff is out, we are going to be VERY active in free agency.

    I actually think you are right. This should put us around 15 million under the cap.

    Houston, again.

    If we are, we had better get busy. Seem to be moving kind of slow, just like other years.
