    In other news, the Texans have apparently failed to re-sign several of their own free agents before Friday's deadline. Players such as running back Ron Dayne and offensive tackle Ephriam Salaam, both believed to be wanted back in Houston by the Texans, will be able to freely negotiate with any of the league's other 31 teams.

    Kubiak has expressed an interest in retaining both of these guys, but apparently they couldn't come to an agreement on contracts ?

    They are clearing money to go get quinn. They'll resign them but they are going to get the cap monster under controll.

    Mike Sherman probably wants Gado to get more reps at RB. I expect him to get a lot more playing time this year.

    He'll probably alternate with whoever we draft.

    Let Dayne go elsewhere to seriously injure OT's.

    I'd like to resign Salaam if the price is low. He's a good depth guy to have.

    what's going to happen is they are going out to see how much their value is in this league...both are going to find out the hard way that what the texans were offering is probably right at market value and they'll re-sign to play for kubiak

    Not likely to start any where else, IMO.

    Dayne please do not go anywhere near Saalam this year. We have only so many LT legs on the team.

    See, the Texans don't need talent on offense. It's all about the system. So they don't need Dayne. Of course, par for course, why they didn't sign Salaam I have no idea...

    There is plenty of time to "solidify" the line with Salaam - I doubt the line of suitors for Salaam is all that long. He looks good for us because for two tackle spots we have Winston, Spencer The-One-Legged, and Brad Bedell.

    I seriously doubt other teams consider him "good depth".

    McClain just said on 610 that the Texans have re-signed Salaam. I am guessing there will be a story on that later.

    Great to know! I still hope we get Dayne, but I can live without him. He showed up towards the end of the season, but who knows whether or not he will be anything like that this year. As for Salaam, he provides excellent depth and I am happy we signed him. Just don't want him starting for us again...

    quit picking on Dayne. Injuries like that happen all the time in the NFL. Not like he goes around kicking people in the shins.
