    Trade Anderson and Okoye for 5th. Not sure anyone will bite though.

    Isn't this almost always the announcement that precedes a Texans players release. He'll get a day, maybe two and then when nobody steps forward to offer a pick or player for him (or "tree-fitty" and a ham sammich) then he gets released.

    Send him to San Diego for a 6th, they seem to like our Defensive Sloppy Seconds.

    They need to stop.

    31 GMs are about to bust a spleen. If they throw Antuan Molden's name out there, I think Goodell is going to have to step in.

    Tennessee or Philadelphia. Then watch him flourish with decent coaching.

    Patriots gave up their 5th to get Haynsworth. Maybe they'd like our 5th if they take Okoye off our hands?

    This is like going to a garage sale and seeing junk nobody wants . The Texans should be on hoarders .

    If I'm a 4-3 team I'm thinking to myself, "Okay, at the very least/worst what do we have with Okoye?" Personally, I think Okoye is a good backup and decent guy to have in a rotation on the DL. Maybe he has room to develop, but at the very least he's a quality back up. If you're 6th round pick or so turns out to be a quality back up it's probably a good selection... or maybe that 6th rounder gets cut before the season. Point is, Okoye is probably better than a DT you might find that late - not a bad pick up. He's young, he's not banged up. Why not!?

    I'd actually like to see Okoye in a 3-4

    I know he isn't proto-typical size, but i'm thinking he would do a better job than Antonio

    The Texans are trying to trade DT Amobi Okoye, who at 24, is an interesting prospect for 4-3 teams. He didn't fit in Hou 3-4

    He didn't do much in our 4-3 as well!

    Ditto. Call it "morbid curiosity" if you like but I feel the same way.
