    We cant go after them until next year anyway, but I would prefer Asomugha out of the two, no matter how dominating Haynesworth is.

    Its all very well having all that money tied up in CB's, but a lack of pass rush will make any CB's look average, just look at Denver. Qb's had a week to throw every down, and Bly and Bailey couldnt play to their ability.

    If the Texans want to make a splash in FA next offseason this guy would be a good way to do it...

    Maybe the Texans can offer Asomugha another vowel for his first name as a contract incentive.

    Yeah, but the problem with that is that if they're going to spend that kind of money on a FA, it would probably mean that among D-Rob, Bennett and Reeves, at least two turned out to disappoint.

    I still think we're a good offseason away from making a huge splash in FA. Asomugha would be absolutely awesome in our backfield, but before we're spending that much money in FA, I'd like to make sure our DL and OLB's are shored up.

    Just think if Colvin is the answer at the other DE spot for pass rushing, Weaver on rushing downs. We sign Asomugha to a multi year deal, Dunta comes back healthy, Bennett continues to improve and Molden gets some playing time and fits in- we can release Reeves (only $4M guaranteed or keep him). Then in the draft we can find a stud OLB and FS in rounds 1 and 2... sheesh thats a scary defense.

    I might go for Asomugha if they are willing to spend the money next offseason. I won't go after Haynsworth though. Even though he is one of the greatest on the DL in the whole league, he doesn't have a place in this locker room. (although Mario, Amobi, Haynsworth, and Colvin would be a nightmare for QB's- we wouldn't even need a secondary)

    Under the scenario you outline (which I love BTW), Dunta's going to be in line for a big contract at the end of next season. Not Clements or Samuel (or Asomugha) dollars, but a pretty nice chunk of change. I think Asomugha is clearly in the same league as Samuel and better than Clements, so I would welcome him on to the roster with open arms. But if Bennett continues to improve, I don't see the Texans rewarding him by demoting him to nickel-back so we can have two high-priced starting corners.

    Do not forget about Molden. I think the Texans are set at CB with young players who are emerging, a long with vetern pressance and leadership in Dunta.
