    Let's see.... The New England Patriots has the worse (not one of, but the worse) passing defense in the league..... set to break records... They release a CB...

    & you want to pick up said CB.


    hmmmmm....

    Now would be a good time to get him so that he doesn't pull what he did last time. Or maybe we just give him the finger this time.

    Or bring him in for a workout, and make him think we are going to sign him, then at the last second say fukoff. :D

    Remember that embarassing period in Texans history when we all begged him via twitter to join our horrible team and then he spurned us and went somewhere else?

    I hope he can't find anywhere else to work and is forced to retire. Good riddance

    I don't know if I'd bring him in...

    Kareem plays ok he just has a bad tendency to get beat deep...Is Bodden better at defending the deep ball?

    It's a damn sign if Chris Harris and Leigh Bodden are both on the market for the Texans to pick up. But just our luck, we're going to stick with our garbage and continue to not get help for JJ.

    I dont care what happened in the past. Sign him and put him opposite JoJo.

    His salary is only 2 mill against the cap, we have the room.

    He's worth bringing in, but won't he have to go through waivers? He won't make it to us if he does.

    per PFT
    I know he used us for leverage to get his new deal with the Pats, but do we look past that now and try to re-spark the old flame?

    Players with 4 or more years of service don't go through the waiver wire - their contract terminates immediately, and they are free to negotiate with any team that shows an interest. Bodden is in his 8th season in the NFL.

    Please don't remind us of 6-10. Last season was a heartbreaker for sure.

    Antwan Molden is seeing the field for the Pats still isn't he? Hard to see how he's lost his place on the team to that guy.

    Bodden did wind up on IR last year and reports that he's had injuries again this year don't fill me with confidence.

    That said, the pre-injury Bodden would make a helluva good CB2 if he could re-find that form.

    Not sure what the problem was. He's thirty years old. Maybe he's just hit the wall.

    I'd at least work him out and see what's what.
