    Me personally, I see DT as a huge need for the Texans. Particularly a guy who is good against the run. I don't think Cody has been that guy or has it in him to be, so I looked at the free agent pool and while the top guys have all been franchised or resigned there's a guy who is a part of the Baltimore rotation who I think would be a reral good fit for Houston. Rotates in/ Starts on 1st and 2nd down plays, allowing the standard nickel package of Barwin/ Smith/ Okoye/ Williams.

    I see Okoye flash talent and feel he could succeed with a better defender next to him. Haven't noticed his name pop up once, and considering the resigning of Robinson I wonder if the team feels comfortable with their DT options.

    Anyways I wrote this for profootballfocus and I thought it would be interesting to get Texan fans opinions on this need and this player as a potential upgrade.

    It is one of those things where the texans need better DL play and one the surface it seems like Bannan is better (how much though) than what they have. No reason for me to oppose, but no reason to be excited based on a limited knowledge of the player.

    As with all posts promoting a run stopping 2-down DT, till the franchise shows any interest in such a player, it is safe to assume it ain't going to happen.
