    Can't we be resigning our own Free Agents right now? I would have thought we would have at least resigned a few guys by now. Especially Defense.

    I don't think it's that period yet. When you start hearing teams signing their UFA's then we'll know. RIght now I think players are just getting "tendered" to deals.

    we're allowed resign FA's now if we want to but look around at all the other teams- hardly nobody is doing it yet

    Key dates:

    2/7-21 Window for teams to designate franchise and transition tags
    2/11 First day teams can cut players
    2/20-26 Scouting combine (probably also aired by NFLN)
    2/28 Deadline to tender RFAs and ERFAs
    2/29 Free agency and trading window opens
    4/18 Deadline for RFA offer sheets
    4/26-27 2008 NFL Draft


    According to Smith and Kubiak they are still evaluating our guys, the prospective FAs, and the draft. You need to figure out if the guy you have is better then the guy you are trying to sign. Or do you think you can upgrade by letting someone go.

    I gotta little birdy on my shoulder telling me we MAY lose Von Hutchinson to the dreaded cowpolkes. And Andre Davis, if someone offers him #1 money, the texans will let him walk. Just brace yourselves there boys and gurls.


    Davis is twenty-eight, and this is his last chance at the brass ring. If someone offers him the farm he's got to take the deal. He's going to be one of the very hot FAs this year. On the one hand you can say it sucks we'll lose a very good and productive player. On the other hand, the first sign there is some legitmate tallent on the club is when people steal them from you.

    IIRC, he'd cost us quite a bit to cut him. He'll be here next season.:cool:

    Nobody is going to offer Andre Davis WR1 money...unless Casserly is the GM somewhere and I'm not aware of it. If we had a NFL caliber secondary losing Hutchinson would be like losing Hodgdon from our offensive line. I'm not sure I'll have to brace for that one.

    I assume we mean Von Hutchins?

    I agree here. Hutchins can hit the road unless we could bring him back dirt cheap as depth.

    IMO, AD will be a Texan. If he demands too much money for a good half season, then he can leave as well. SmithGM (& Co) has shown smarts with the cap and contract numbers so I'm not worried about it.

    I don't know...I can the Titans doing it. They have TONS of cap space, and they are desperate for some WR's. Not to mention AD would make a good return man for them since they lost Pacman.

    Andre Davis is a well spoken, decent person and a good team mate. That doesn't sound like a tack to me...

    I dunno Dan Synder is always around. He gave Randle El that insane contract.

    Honestly I see AD here next year. I think the FO has been candid in their want to re-sign him and as Smith put it he "fits here". As FA receiver I don't know of a much more attractive situation. An established #1 and an offense despite losing the starting QB, RB and so many turnovers still finished 6 or 7th in offense. There's something brewing here and I hope he realizes that AND wants to be a part of it.

    We were all disappointed with Green's first year with Houston. I am always the first to give the benifit of the doubt and we gave Davis(Williams) OTAs at least. That still didn't work but Davis didn't have the resemee that Green has. Saying this, Kubiak seems to have learned from his mistakes so Green will probably cut him no matter what.

    I can see the FO doing the same thing they did with Vonta Leach (and maybe Ron Dayne) last year.

    Seems like Rick Smith has no problem letting another team negotiate with his free agents. If it's somebody he wants to keep around, then he just matches the offer.

    I'm really hoping that we can keep Andre Davis and Will Demps around this offseason.

    I'm not saying I want him to return. I just think he'll be here next season if healthy.

    Thanks I-Cak. I still have a strong hunch he'll be around next season. I might be wrong, by George it wouldn't be the first time. :cool:

    Little different deal. Leach was a RFA so the Texans had the right to match the offer. Davis and Demps are UFA's so the Texans have nothing but a year's loyalty to having matching make them return.

    I can see Davis resigning with us.

    I've heard he's really grateful for us giving him the chance that no one else would. He also likes it here, so I'm sure he'll get his agent to sign where he wants. ;)
