    What do you guys think about this guy?

    He is the #2 DT in Free Agency right now (according to Scout.com), right behind Haloti Ngata.

    I don't know if the Texans have room for him in their rotation, but he's worth a look.

    Looks like a good fit for the AFC South.

    I thought he was franchise tagged...

    Oh sorry, it was 2010 that he got franchised.

    But meh, he's wasn't that great last year and he's 31. DT is certainly a weak position for this free agency period, since Ngata and Soliai were tagged.

    Here's a good list of the free agent DT's from Walterfootball:

    The only good NT in free agency. He will get overpaid somewhere, possibly here

    It's Aubrayo Franklin and he's had 2 good seasons both of which were contract years. I agree he's the best NT in a very thin NT FA class this year but I'm leery of a guy that only plays great when a new contract is on the line.

    I may get flamed for this next comment, but I have to make it.

    Look at that at picture. At that size she can surely play NT!

    Not a fit for the Texans. Wade prefers small NT, under 350 pounds.
