    So what do you guys think? I think he's gone after Free Agency this year even with his lack luster performance. He will demand boatloads of money and there will be some team who will give him that boat (I think).

    What do you guys think?

    He's gone and it's sad but it is what it is. He'll get a TON of cash on the open market and probably fail somewhere else. We need some new blood at CB.

    10 yard cushions can take a walk. He no longer is the corner he used to be before getting hurt.

    He wants to get paid like that guy and not the one he is today.

    If Dunta wanted to be paid like a middling CB would any of you change your mind?

    For the right price I think it would be great to have him back but he won't take average pay to stay in Houston, He'll be 28 by the time the season starts and he'll be stupid to not atleast try for a huge payday.. What's the shelf life for a CB anyways ? Anyone know ?

    It's more dependent on how well the CB plays. If he's talented enough he could play forever, and I don't see that many CB's go right out of the league due to just breaking down as often as I see RB's do that.

    This guy would make i think a hell of a FS or SS IMO it just screams at me or even a special teams player


    But we got alot of contracts to pickup its not a perfect world we cant keep everybody ....and with that being said ....Its hurts me to say this our weakest part of the team is secondary this is someone we SHOULD pick up

    For the right price, i'd love to have him back, i just think he's gonna price himself out of range. With a little more pressure on the Qb (without blitzing as much) and a ball hawking FS to go along with Pollard I think he's solid.

    This gets parroted a lot but I don't know why. He hasn't been much of a hitter this year, which is exactly what you would want in your SS position.

    Glover Quin was definitely a better CB than Dunta this season.

    Enough said.

    LOL, he's not going to get a "ton of cash on the open market". Frankly the guy screwed himself and will most likely come crawling back (he should of taken the contract that we offered him, but I'm glad he didn't), most likely Houston is going to have the final say if he's here next year or not (since teams are NOT going to be beating down his door) and I hope they tell him to kick rocks.

    I say he stays but only as a nickel corner. Which I feel you would not find a better third string cb

    Dunta's ego would never allow him to be a nickel corner......It would be a TO/Marshall situation if we even tried to press him in that role. The sad thing is, he wouldn't even be the best nickel corner on this team. McCain has that role sowed up.....a corner that still has burning speed and upside. Dunta is OVERRATED, he peeked during his rookie season and it's been downhill since.

    I would give him a similar contract to what Reeves is making.

    I'll bet he does.

    Some team out there (Redskins, Raiders) will give him alot of cash in hopes that he'll turn back into a good CB, Will it happen ? I dunno but don't think he won't get paid.

    Hey, a buddy of mine said earlier today that Dunta had more sacks than any other Texan this year. Do you guys know if that's true or not? I haven't had time to look it up. Dunta being our sack leader sounds like a bit of a stretch.

    The guy has left a bad taste in my mouth. We have far too many key players to lock up to be spending money on someone who doesn't want to be here. If Dunta gets a huge payday somewhere else, good for him. But I don't want him here.

    If our best sack total is 0, I'm very disappointed.
