    Maybe the most intriguing rumor is DeAngelo Hall going to the Super Bowl champs for the last pick in the 1st round.

    Has Jerry Jones heard about this? I would have to think he'd want to get into a bidding war to prevent a talent like Hall going to a division rival.

    Also, Javon Walker may be heading to Tampa Bay. I hope this is true, as I was concerned he might end up in the AFC South with the Titans or the Jags. According to the site, Tennessee is interested in Bernard Berrian.

    Charger UFA RB Michael Turner is having trouble finding a suitor in his price range.
    After signing Ahman Green last year, I realize it would be a hard sell to Bob McNair to go after another FA RB. But, I think Michael Turner would be such a good fit for the Texans. He runs as hard as any RB in the league. He's the type of back an offensive line loves to block for, and a defense hates to tackle. You won't see Gary Brackett dropping back 20 yards on a play action fake to Turner. I really hope his price drops enough to enable the Texans to consider signing him.

    His price has to drop or he may not find a home at all.

    I saw that rumor too Ole Miss. IF big IF he does get cut we might have found a trade down partner if that's what we want to do.

    Question becomes then who we target with their first round pick? Rogers-Cromartie?

    I'm thinking that McQuarters is no better than any of the CB's we already have manning the spot. Madison could be an option, but as you stated he is getting old.

    Listening to Giants fans, they are as happy about McQuarters getting cut, as we were to hear about P-burnt getting the axe.

    EDIT: The real FA that we want to go after from the Giants is Gibril Wilson (Or whatever Wilson it is that plays SS for them).

    Hall has been said to be a walking locker room cancer by some. But keep in mind, though, that a lot of negative things were going on in Atlanta far before the public got hold of it and before the team "imploded."...........the state of affairs for the team as a whole was a continuous cauldron of turmoil. Others spoke out, but Hall was the highest profile. He IS a shut down CB. If there is consideration on Hall/Atlanta's part to deal for a trade for the bottom of the 1st round pick, then, I say Hall would be a young instant ready-to-start polished beast that would be more than any CB talent that could be obtained in the draft at ANY pick. If this deal can be had, the Texans should drive hard for it.

    We're gonna differ on how good Hall really is.

    You call him a shut-down CB, but I would call him a playmaking CB.

    To be honest, he doesn't shut many people down. His technique can be downright awful at time. His AMAZING speed saves his ass constantly, but not always. But, he does have really soft hands & gets more than his fair share of INTs.

    I'd be a liar if I said he wouldn't be an instant upgrade for our team, but I dont want any part of his "character" or attitude on the Texans.

    Look at Atlanta's entire D..........put any CB in that environment and he can be made to look like a buffoon............put a great CB in that environment and he is made to look "untouchable" at times and revert to buffoon status all too often. Again, I would consider Hall a shut-down CB in a supported environment. And BTW with all the "changes" and the lack of competent ownership, coaching and player personel, if I were a talented entity, I too would be demonstrating a less than stellar attitude.

    I repeat, the Texans would do well to actively pursue this type of talent........This is one case where attitude is very likely to show immediate change with a reasonable change of venue.

    Question then becomes.... what are you willing to give for Hall?

    G-men willing to give their first but that's the last pick of the first for proven talent.

    I would have no problem with our #18 pick going for the "proven talent." I would have a problem, though, with a "break the bank" dollar number to go with the deal.

    If this PFT report is correct, there will be no trade..........and, certainly, not with the Texans:
