http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap30...setag-primer-predictions-for-all-32-nfl-teams Should Bouye be franchised either to make him prove it another year or give the team more time to work out a deal and/or trade for him? Price tag is steep ~14M, Spotrac has his estimated market value of 11.4M. So to keep him you will have to put up at least 25M guaranteed over 5 years. The Texans are in a tough spot and either pay up or let him walk. I'm inclined to franchise and try to work out a deal or trade (not likely). If you do sign him either way, you have to cut or restructure Joseph to free up some money.
