    A post earlier by gpschafer_76 got me thinking so I did a run dowmn on our roster and this is what I think can/should happen.
    KEEPERS:
    Offense-OL-Hodgdon C, Pitts G/T, Salaam T, Winston T, Spencer T, Briesel G, WR- Johnson, Moulds, D. Andersen, Walter, TE- Daniels, Putzier, RB- Lundy, Gado, Davis ?, QB- Carr, Rosenfels
    Defense- DE- Williams, Peek, Kalu, Cochran, DT- Dalton, Th. Johnson, Maddox, Weaver,LB- Ryans, Orr, Wong, DB-Earl, Faggins, Robinson,Mc Kenzie, Walker
    BUBBLE- OL Weary,McKinney, WR-D. Lewis, Mathis, QB- Porter,Van Pelt,RB- Taylor, TE- Bruener
    Defense- C. Anderson, Babin, C.C. Brown, Evans, Polk, Simmons, Wynn,Tr. Johnson, Malone, Sanders
    GONE- Offense- Bedell, Cook, Dayne, Jackson,Leach, Pearson, Flanagan, Wiegert, Broussard, Steele
    Defense- Greenwood, Hutchins, Killings, McLeon, Stone, Alexander, Payne, Rainer
    ST- Brown, Stanley

    Thats only 33 that I would keep, hope FA and the Draft are good to us.

    Whiskey,

    Man looking at the we need an RB in the worst way!

    Good thoughts - your pretty much dead on - although I think Orr iwll be a bubble guy next year, but will likely stick.

    there will always be a different opinion on keeps and releases...mine are similar to yours.

    keeps:offense...
    QBs Carr and Rosenfels
    RBs Lundy
    WRs Johnson, Moulds, Walter, and Anderson
    OTs Spencer and Winston
    OGs Pitts, Flanagan, and Weary
    TEs Daniels and Putzier

    keeps:defense...
    DEs Williams, Weaver, Peek, and Kalu
    DTs Johnson
    OLBs Orr, Greenwood
    MLBs Ryans
    DBs Brown...convert him to a corner, Sanders, Robinson
    Ss none

    keeps:speacial teams
    KR+PR Mathis

    offseason:
    trade Davis for a second or third round pick
    release the rest...please
    bring in eithier Clements or Samuel at DB one of them will be available
    LB pray for Briggs and prepare to draft otherwise

    draft:
    round one: Jake Long OT Michigan
    round two: Antonio Pittman RB Ohio State, and Daymeion Hughes DB California if he is still there...or trade up for Adrian Petterson RB Oklahoma
    round three-five:load up on DBs and safeties

    we may have some issues to work out i would only keep 26 about half our team.

    Why would any team in its right mind give up any pick, much less a 2nd rounder, for an injured D.Davis? No one would give a second round pick for James or Alexander. I am pretty sure that Davis is done and Kubes is mearly softening the salary cap blow by waiting until after June 1 to reach a settlement and releasing him.

    The Texans need to bring as many players on the current roster to camp as possible....

    I hope we don't have a large turnover...

    We need to try and keep guys together so we can build some kind of team chemistry....

    If you look at the direction that Kubiak is wanting to go Flanagan is going to be entering his 12th year and has had alot of injuries and Briesel is a rookie, plus if we hit the FA market hard it could possibly happen as a salary cap move. This is pure speculation. JMO on how things may turn out. I mean really if we were able to get lets say Briggs and Clements and Samuel would it be worth letting Flanagan go and keep the 2 youngsters. And as far as Mathis it doesn't seem to me that Kubes has to much for him if he can't become a solid reciever. He may be used in a trade. But like I said this is JMO.

    And who might you be thinking will give you anything for a RB who may never wear a jersey again? He has a big salary and a broken down body and has expressed an unwillingness to do what it takes to be on the field (refused anymore surgery this training camp).

    You are drinking to much punch here.

    I for one would like to see what an off season with Pearson will do. If he looks bad in coaching seasons, let him go.

    Plus let me see Thomas Johnson, Maddox, Malone As DT depth along with Travis Johnson going into the draft.

    Want to add if McKinney starts at OC the rest of the season Hodgdon will be gone this off season. And Orr is on the bubble and will be gone if they take a Strong side LB in the draft.
     
  12. The only keepers are Ryans, Williams, Winston, Daniels and possibly Carr & AJ. All others are upgradable.

    I think McKinney is closer to being on the bubble than Weary, who I would put as a keeper. Weigert will be gone, but not Flanagan. Winston's progression and Spencer's injury will have a lot to do with the people brought in. If the team decides to shift Winston to Guard, I could see the team trying to free-agent a right tackle for now and drafting one for later. If Spencer cannot play, though, the LT position is much more important and needs to be addressed immediately (for the fifth or sixth year in a row).

    We may have an even trade at Running Back for DD if he is not released.

    I expect another 5-10 players on the squad next year, most of them on defense or the offensive line.

    33players? + maybe 5 keepers in draft and at most 2-3 in FA= 40-41. We are then 4-5 players short. Maybe the street? Romos turn up daily. Yep I buy it.
