    Just watched Sports Sunday on Fox 26 and The Texans are one of the teams Moulds either would like to be traded with or would like to sign with once released.

    Thanks, I did fail to mention that. If we happen to pick up Moulds, I think that would be it for our free agency and we would address all other needs in the draft. I must say this has been our busiest offseason.

    Kalu went to Rice, so I can see his reasons coming here.

    Moulds would definitley make a perfect addition, but he's going to be really expensive.

    Wait for him to be released. His contract this year is in the 8 million dollar range. Plus, he's also indicated he definitley wants out of Buffalo.

    I was looking at the same thing. I can't see us assuming his contract given his lenght of time in the league. He looks like he is on the down hill side. We are not cash and cap space rich at the present time. Again, besides beating us Buffalo didn't do much, so may be still has some left in the tank.

    I kind of like what we already have and would only want to sign some one who is clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else at the present time. We are going to need quite a bit of money for the draft. If we can pick some one up just because they want to be a Texan, then we might get them at a better price.

    I'm sure we could get him for our 2nd or 3rd.

    My thought is to give up a second day pick for him. They know he can't be coveted for too much and if they want something out of the deal, most won't offer too much. Or the people that would, wouldn't be the teams he would be interested in. IMO

    Does anyone have any evidence to support the ND Kalu rumour that is starting up??

    We could trade DD for him and resign Wells who would be a better complement to Bush anyway.:fans:

    No links, just hearsay. I saw it on FOX if that's good enough for you.

    Do not see any, probably because it really is not newsworthy. Aside from him going to Rice, what is there to be excited about? 8 sacks in 2002 were nice.

    Moulds is on the decline, he's 32 will be 33 when season starts. Teams will not throw money at him.

    He will get Isaac Bruce money, 3 yr 15 million. No where near what Burleson got, Randel El, Givens, etc.

    He will be a solid veteren number 2 receiver for us if he come at around that price. 55 receptions 700 yard type wr. But don't expect the Eric Moulds of old. If he come and shows longevity like Rod Smith in Denver, we would be getting a major steal. But i would offer him 3yr 15 million, anything more than that, i wouldn't take him.

    ND Kalu would just add depth, nothing fancy, Depth is good. That mean for the Super Mario Fans, we will not be drafting him, sorry to burst your bubble, we simply would be carrying too many DE's.

    Getting Eric Moulds would be great for the 2006 season since he seems to be great in even-numbered years. ;)

    I don't know about Moulds, but N.D. Kalu is a solid player who will provide some excelent depth.

    not really, barring an injury.

    1998- 67 for 1368
    1999- 65 for 994
    2000- 94 for 1326
    2001- 67 for 904
    2002- 100 for 1292
    2003- 64 for 780
    2004- 88 for 1043
    2005- 81 for 816

    if hes healthy, you can see he is a pro-bowl caliber WR. he missed time last year, and had arguably one of the worst qbs in the league throwing the ball, and still managed 80 grabs.

    healthy + our offense should get him 80 catches and 1000+ yards easy
