    I would assume it would be the O line, but I mean hey, I never imagined we would be spending this kind of money the second day of free agency on a LB so what do I know...honestly it does make me think we will address our O line and depth in this years draft and we should be in pretty good shape if we do IMO...

    I wouldn't worry about the money, we were in OK shape as far as the cap goes before signing Greenwood and Payne and I also have a feeling one of our defensive starters will be released soon and that would free up more space...also, after this signing it wouldn't surprise me if we traded down in the draft but that's just my opinion...

    My opinion is the Offensive line, leave that to the draft, need an impact TE and #2 WR
    DONE......

    Scratch Thomas Davis we have Earl and Coleman. Why wouldn't we draft a WR AJ can't do it all by himself

    Because you would have 2 WR's, one that was a #1 pick, and the 2nd a #13 pick, and a QB who has no time to throw to either of them...

    I have a feeling we'll see Williamson in a Texans uni, even though what we need is an O-Lineman.

    That still dosen't exclude the fact that we need someone opposite of Andre to take some pressure off of him.

    Do yall think there is a TE out there worthy of the number 13 pick?

    Texan279 wasnt the guy who said to pick Thomas Davis. So I wouldnt expect Texan279 to answer your question.

    I would take Barron.

    I agree with DC and 84, we need an O lineman :thumbup After fixing the O line add a TE and maybe a RB, LB, D lineman, and O lineman in the later rounds we should be good to go...

    My plan from here:

    We sign Kevin Johson, Draft DL in 1st, OL in 2nd, and CB in 3rd.

    I don't think we can afford to use #13 on a TE... you go for the OL or a WR, however I think that the WR is what will be chosen... Williamson is the likely pick, but it would sure be nice to build the OL. Either that or we need to surgically attach legs on Carr's back so he can run easier after getting knocked down.

    Someone earlier posted about Plaxico contacting Houston. Please don't let that cancer in the door. :loser

    I agree on the o-line bit but I say we need to work on our d-line moreso than we need to draft a WR with #13. Glad some people here aren't CC. :heh:

    I don't know how we could work on our D line, we just re-signed Payne today, pretty much solidifying Walker, Payne, and Smith as our starting D line unless Walker or Smith was released which I doubt will happen, there is a lot of money tied up in our D line after today...unless you want to use the 13th pick to add depth to the d line... :woot
