    I want him, I would freaking love this kid, I dont know how i missed that he was an FA but I did. Damn i would take him over anyone else out there in a heartbeat, the cowboys lost to the Giants because they stoped giving him the ball(IMO of course). Im all gitty just thinking about it.....:whip:

    Barber is an RFA, and I'm alnost positive that the Cowboys gave him the highest tender. SO if you want to sign him, a) the Cowboys get the chance to mach any offer, and b) it might cost you a 1st and a 3rd to get him.

    You like him that much?

    All of the above is true.

    He was given the highest tender.

    He's good, and he runs angrily and with authority, but I like Marshawn Lynch way better as a runner than Marion the Barbarian. Mostly because Lynch can do it by himself really.

    Marion Barber isn't going anywhere. But I'd take JJ. He'd be a stud in our ZBS.

    Dayne on short yardage, and either Darius or Taylor in the wings.

    Oh yeah, if Ahman Green is healthy, we can play him too.

    For what? His autograph?

    It would take at least a 1st & 3rd cuz he is a RFA with the max tender.

    That was the round he was originally drafted in. I'm guessing aj meant draft someone like him rather than throw the Brinks truck plus draft picks at him.

    No, that would be the most.

    He was a 4th round pick. Draft > FA signing.

    Unless someone offered and then Dallas matched it.

    Then he could only be had in a trade, and I expect it would take at least a 1st & a 3rd for Dallas to give him up.

    Find an example of that happening and we can talk. 1st and 3rd is the most compensation possible in an RFA transaction. What you are theorizing wouldn't even involve free agency at all--it would be a straight up player trade (and unlikely as hell since the signing bonus would immediately accelerate to the trading team's cap)--and to repeat, the most the Texans would have to pay in an RFA transaction is a 1st and 3rd.
