    If there is no CBA agreed upon before the start of free agency, the 4 year players who would normally become UFA's will remain RFA's. 6 year players will be UFA's. A 6th year player is kind of a wierd place to be because some of them have peaked and the ones that haven't are probably already locked up because of the obvious upside they possess.

    These are the players at each position that will be unrestricted if we enter an uncapped year:

    The commentary on each group is from Jason La Canfora @ NFL.com

    I thought this too.... really he's the only one I felt was interesting

    Seymour, Vanden Bosch, Wilfork, Franklin - these guys will be franchised

    I really don't think free agency is gonna provide much for the Texans other than depth/role players... no Antonio Smith's this year

    I wouldn't mind grabbing one or two of Vince Wilfork, Aubrayo Franklin, Casey Hampton, Aaron Kampman, Neil Rackers, or Sebastian Janikowski.

    Grabbing Casey Hampton or Vince Wilfork would be a huge signing for this defense and possibly solve one of our problems

    Me neither but consider Demeco, OD, and Pollard are all creeping closer and closer to getting paid... we'll find ourselves right back in salary cap hell or we'll lose more than one of those 3 if we signed a big free agent this year

    No thanks to Rackers. He's another kicker that people think is better than he is. Big leg, little accuracy. He has a career percentage of 78.2%, with 6 of his 10 years under 76%.

    Awesome year this year, though.

    He had that one year when he put up an insane amount of points and everyone thinks he is better then he is. Janokoski would be nice but i dont see it happening.

    I'll take his 94.1% vs Brown's 70%.

    Richard Seymour, Casey Hampton, Should be our top priority but probably wont even get a look from us.

    Keith Bulluck is 32 but I would love to see him playing alongside Cush and Ryans. We'll probably look at Chaun Thompson, Pisa Tinoisamoa type players for depth.

    I believe therea are some TE names missing from that list. I'll have to check. I would make real sure to give this group a good look just in case OD's injury slows him down more than expected. There should be some pretty good bargains here.

    Still cant figure out why we didnt sign Ty Law, or Lawyer Milloy last year to short term contracts. I believe they were both available. Either would of been better than trotting out Busing.

    Which problem? We have pretty much eliminated the run game with what we have. Okam may go but expect a lighter DT to replace him. Never thought I'd say that.

    Our defensive tackles are underachieving dramatically and i think with the addition of one of these two or running defensive will improve as well as the passing defensive because the oline would need to focus more attention on our DT and less on Mario and Barwin and Smith

    I'd take a look at Karlos Dansby (wanted him last year), and Babin, yes that Babin. Also, I would be thrilled if we got Chester Taylor, In my opinion he's definately the best RB on that list
