    I would bet someone will offer Pollard big money. We've got Demeco & OD to sign as well.

    I had heard on the radio today, that we locked up Foster for 2 years...... I didn't know that.

    & what do you guys think about Dunta? 5 for 75 for Randy Moss, no TDs.. do we want to keep Dunta?

    All three are restricted free agents. The Texans have the right to match any offer.

    You think New England makes Pollard an offer?????:kitten:

    If anyone deserves to be paid, it's Pollard. He made a statement the whole time he's been with us this year.

    D Ryan - Franchise Tag
    D Robinson- probably sign somewhere else but definitely not for the Texans original offer if he stays
    O Daniels-Love the guy but his injury may prevent him from the big pay day. Hope he stays but a torn ACL is not the injury you want in a contract year
    Pollard-will be resigned unless Texans can land a top tier safety like T Mays in the draft.

    I would be very pissed if they franchised Demeco rather than paying him.

    Signed Pollardized (ME)... for all the mental anguish I have put up with over the years; and for the ulcer I am developing tonight.

    Not correct. Franchise tags will still be available and RFA tenders are extended from 4 to 6 years.

    Pollard is a restricted free agent? Are you sure?

    Great news if true.

    What would the Texans' compensation be if he signed with another team?

    Actually two franchise/transition tags will be available to each team in an uncapped year.

    Pollard has now been in the league for 4 seasons. In previous years, that would make him eligible for unrestricted free agency. But due to the NFL opting out of the collective bargaining agreement with the players' union, players need 6 vested league years to become UFAs. That's if their current teams decide to tender them. Which I'm sure the Texans will with Pollard.

    If Pollard were to sign an offer sheet, and the Texans refused to match, the Texans would receive a draft pick commensurate with the type of tender that was offered. The options would be a 1st & 3rd round pick tender, a 1st round pick tender, a 2nd round tender, and a minimum tender (which would also return a 2nd round selection as Pollard was a 2nd round pick in 2006).

    Houston, again.
    IMO, I doubt we will see very much movement of quality players during the FA period. The new rules extending UFA to 6 years will affect something like 212 players in the league (I think that was in USA Today). Teams will hit the guys they want to keep with a strong RFA and those they want to unload, maybe for contract reasons, they wont. If I understand the contract situation correctly, it looks like there will be a good opportunity for some teams to unload high paid, older players without the usual cap hit. If so, we sure could have used something like that for Weaver a couple of years ago. On the other hand, we might be able to pick up an older player (29-34) or two for a much smaller salary hit than usual and get a couple of years out of them.

    How many players of each level tender can a team assign?
    For example, are they limited to one 1st & 3rd, two 1st rd, two 2nd rd, etc....?
    How many players at each level can we "protect"?
