    Anyone else watching Fox 26 Sports? Berman mentioned that the Texans gave Jamie Sharper permission to seek a trade. OMG Say it ain't so!

    If it is, you can guarantee we'll be getting something real nice in return.

    Fox 26 just reported that after the Texans signed Greenwood, they told Sharper and Foreman they could go ahead and seek trades...

    I think Greenwood will be a decent ILB, definitely better than Foreman, but nowhere near Sharper's level...

    Discuss...

    To Foreman adios, but why Sharper???????????????? Are they trying to make cap room or go at the ILB spot from scratch? Maybe go after DJ in the draft?

    Well that would explain signing Greenwood and telling Wong he is moving to the inside.

    There has to be someone out there they have their eyes on. Whether that be someone yet to be drafted or a free agent.

    I hope this is just posturing by the Texans so that they can restructure Sharpers deal. I'm fine with Foreman getting the heave-ho, but not Sharper.

    There is not much we would get in return that would make me happy about involving Sharper in a trade. A first round pick or Ray Lewis are about all that wouldnt make me unhappy with the Texans for the first time in there existence.

    well, I can definately say I'm not happy nor amused by this report...the only good that would come out of it is a first round pick...remember that sharper is in the final year of his contract and if it were to happen, it might not hurt

    Bell, Hartwell, or Crowder are the only viable options I can come up with...

    If we do trade him and get anything less than a high 2nd rounder, we got jipped...

    If Sharper AND Foreman are GONE .... i would assume the Texans have someone in mind to replace that depth .
    Foreman i dont think is anything more than a back up type player at best .
    Sharper on the other hand has been the heart of the D since their first game .
    Has Pro-Bowl type talent . Removing that from the defence makes a strength a glaring weakness unless you replace talent with talent .
    Only one player comes to mind via draft or free-agent and thats DJ. If this report is true i expect the Texans to trade up . The other free agents at the position are either old or will want too much cash .
    This report could be false but who knows ?

    If the Cowboys are switching to the 3-4, they could maybe use Sharper but I can't think of anything the Cowboys have that we would want besides picks off the top of my head...

    Sharper? I don't see how we could do that without trading up for DJ ... but then again, maybe that's part of the trade condition.

    :thumbup Its always better to get rid of a player a year early rather than a year late .

    I really don't want to see Sharper go. There's not much we could get in return for him that would leave me feeling we got a good deal. He's the heart and soul of our defense.

    As I noted in the other thread, the only way I can see the Texans letting Sharper go would be if they could guarantee landing a DJ.
