    Everyone is saying we're freeing up space to make a "big" signing in FA.

    I actually don't think so. The only "big" unexpected cut so far was Winston, and that has been justified by his play per salary in some peoples mind.

    Lienhart was expected
    Vickers wasn't expected, but its not a real big issue and he can't have been too much of a cap hit anyway.
    Jacoby is expected but its still only rumor right now
    Demeco is only a rumor right now.

    It's probably going to be a less exciting ending then what you fella's are hyping yourselves up for

    I don't think anyone is expecting a big FA.

    It's the offseason, we need to get excited about SOMETHING.

    The only thing I'm truly worried about is what or O line will look like when all this is over.

    That's what's on my mind too. The Peyton Manning and/or Super FA WR thing is so far off in the distance

    The only big move that I could think that they are going to make with all these cuts is trying to re-sign Mario.

    At this point, they may just be trying to hang on to Myers.

    LanceZ has tweeted that the Texans and Myers have not even talked about a contract yet.

    IMO, Mario can F off into the sunset as long as the $$$ is used to re-sign Myers and Brisiel (sp?).

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have mario, but like many of us, I don;t want him at the expense of losing our interior OL.

    UFA as of today:

    Brisiel (sign him!)
    Dreessen (cut)
    Meyers (SIGN!!)
    Rackers (sign)
    Turk (cut)
    Ward (cut)
    Williams (hopefully sign)

    I don't see how we have money to sign all four

    I'd rather have Dreesen than Rackers.

    Check out how much Denver turned over their Oline during their heydays in the 90's.

    I don't have a link, but I remember reading on PFT a couple of weeks back something to the effect of Myers wanting to stay in Houston, but also wanting to test free agency first. Seems to me like at a bare minimum he wants to see what he can get and tell the Texans to offer it, or that he just wants out.

    Either way I have been expecting him to step away without a contract and come back to the Texans and say "this is what I can get, match/exceed it or I'm not coming back."

    He would be financially expensive and we would also lose our 1st round pick. Are you okay with that?
