Hey folks. I was wondering what you guys thought about the Texans potentially bringing in Michael Boley from the Atlanta Falcons. Boley is a good player who may be on the verge of becoming a great player. He's fast, athletic, aggressive, and, best of all, he excels in rushing the passer off of blitzes. I thought that the Falcons would have every intention of bringing the guy back, but I found this article http://life.atlantafalcons.com/index.php?showtopic=3813162 Analysis: GM Thomas Dimitroff is allowing players coming up on free agency to either play themselves in or out of the clubs future plans. At the midway point of the season, DT Jonathan Babineaux and WR Michael Jenkins appeared to be the most likely soon-to-be free agents whom Atlanta would like to have back. Depending on how the Falcons handle their own crop, they could have a good chunk of cap space heading into the offseason. WLB Keith Brookings contract, which put a $7.7 million dent in the cap this year, is voidable and could come off the books after 08. If Dimitroff has money to spend, he isnt afraid to make a big splash, as he proved last year when he dished out a $34.5 million deal (approximately $15 million guaranteed) to free-agent RB Michael Turner. Sources say the club will focus almost exclusively on defensive upgrades in 09, as starters such as SLB Michael Boley and SS Lawyer Milloy are unlikely to be re-signed. The Falcons would like to keep Brooking, but at a much lower price than what hes currently making. WR Roddy White wont become a free agent until after 09, but Atlanta might decide to lock him up long term this winter. I think Boley is the perfect fit for what Bush wants to do. He's still young which is always a plus. He's also very instinctive and a sideline-to-sideline player. I know a lot of us fans are focusing on Nnamdi and Peppers, but I just don't see the Texans FO breaking the bank for these guys. Boley may be just what the doctor ordered for the new-look defense.
