    I get that but over thirty before finally having a breakout year. Not enough history to pay him for his good year. Especially when what he excelled at was more of a strong safety role.

    Thomas has years of elite FS play. Of course he’ll cost more but I’m sick of getting gashed to death by good QBs down the field. I want a deep safety with range. Something the badger and Jackson are lacking.

    The 'why would the other team do it' seems to get ignored a lot in these fantasy ramblings

    Our problem in the secondary is not at safety.. Why should we overpay at the safety position when we're bleeding to death at corner? We need at least 2 starting NFL CBs this offseason.

    I realize that but there’s literally no cornerbacks available in free agency that are worth paying for. At least none that I’ve seen there is when I’m out to me please. Besides the whole subject was about what to do with the safeties Matthew and Jacson. Rather than paying both of them I would rather go after someone like Earl Thomas. That’s all I’m saying. I think CB on our team is a bigger need than Oline is but that wasn’t part of the discussion

    Well we need atleast one corner with top end speed, atleast 4.4 if not in the 4.3 range to keep up with burners like Hilton.

    Pickup Claiborne/Brown/Smith in FA and trade for a vet CB like Jenkins and I would be very happy.

    Then nail the draft with Cajuste/J. Love and the team will look alot better.

    Just gotta spend the $$$$ they've got the cap space.

    Why you saying something so silly? His post is reasonable and possible. I agree that the trades except Mercilus can be done. Actually think we can get more than Optimistic thinks. Fuller should get a round 2 for team like Green Bay with QB like Rodgers. Miller may be in play for day 3 pick now he's in pro bowl.

    Yeah because we could get an all pro LT or RT for that pick. And it wasn't just trading him. It was because DB wanted more guaranteed money than team wanted to pay. Can we just go on?

    I agree it can be done as long as 4 other NFL teams agree to it, 2 players not with us agree to our price tag and no other teams match or beat our offer and 8 current players agree to our price tag and don't think they are worth more or have any other teams offer them a better deal. So as long as everything goes just the way the Texans want it to then it can be done. I get this is the Ideal Off Season thread, and therefore basically fantasy football, but many on here are giving their scenarios as if it would be that easy and the Texans stupid for not going that route.

    Everyone seems to forget to make any deal in the NFL requires the other party to agree also. Just like everyone saying we can get team friendly deals, well the players want player friendly deals so what do you do there? Even if we tag someone like Clowney or whatever, who's to say he doesn't get mad and then either not play or just phones it in.

    then bring reasons why not. We have cap, there are teams that could use our players,etc.

    You can tag and trade Clowney to Green Bay for example. Miller to Pittsburgh to support and spell Conner and Fuller to Green Bay is a reasonable landing place especially if Antonio Brown leaves. A WR in first round to replace Brown and Fuller would be huge for Rodgers. This is not fantasy but solid possibilities.
