    Just seen on ESPN he has been released. If we had a chance to get him would you want him?

    believe it or not I would rather have Arrington-Ryans-Greenwood. I think that Greenwood made excellent strides last year and made a good number of plays. I also think that if we could somehow get Arrington we should still get another young LB in an early round for depth and development.

    Those are some pretty good players..new GM coming in to clean house. Would definately look at Arrington, Pettigout and Emmons, although he might be a MLB, not sure.

    we need petigout over lavar, but i'd take them both in an instant. anything that saves us a pick that comes at a reasonable price is ok with me. though, i dont know why they'd come to houston...

    I would love to get Lavar Arrington, he could really really help us out with some leadership. He is a good player, he just had problems with the redskin management (go figure) and then was misfortunate with what happend this past year. Giants are trying to get younger it seems and free up some cap space. I think if we can get him for a decent price, it would really help us out. I am all for bringing him in.

    This years stats as followed......played 12 games and had 62 total tackles and 49 were solo, 13 were assisted....1 sack and 2 pass deflections....no ff nor fr.....he is mediocre.....here is morlon greenwood our 2nd best lb.....he played 16 games and had 109 total tackles and 83 solo and 26 assist......1 sack 1 int and 2 passes deflected....2 ff and 3 fr.....now here is lavar arrington....i will post last years even though he only played 6 games...not fair to go to different years due to talent on teams and teams they play....so he had 16 total tackles and 14 solo, and 2 assisted, 1 sack and 3 pass deflections, 0 ff and 0 fr......it seems by looking that lavar is the better cover linebacker than both. i say pick up either one of the two

    yeah, i remember him being obnoxiously fast. when he was with the foreskins i remember seeing him cover WRs on spread sets every now and then. i'm loving the idea of him speed rushing behind a double-teamed mario on passing downs. think our D staff could have some fun with that.

    Every fan from every team in the NFL just got excited. Except for maybe the Giants and Redskins.

    Nobody really interests me.......all are overpriced and old. They all have FA Busts written across their foreheads.

    There's a reason why New York released him after one year... Something about that injury... I dont think LaVar will be the same explosive LB he once was. I think we're better off drafting a young linebacker IMO...

    Houston, again.
    Isn't Arrington known as a freelancer and uncontrolled type?
