    Do we still have that open roster spot? Released Salaam and Nixon, but only got back brown IIRC?

    That move should have happened last year.

    I thought there was some renewed hope for Okams career here ? Guess I thought wrong.
    Now we got no size anywhere in DTs ? Apparently that's how they like it ?

    Like Bernard Pollard and Will Demps and Deljuan Robinson?

    What the hell are you talking about? First, Smith has been pretty amazing at getting guys off the street that have come in here and contributed. Secondly, Keglar, like Nixon before him, is primarily a special teams signing.

    Well, if it's a special team signing it seems to me that we have good depth and no problems on ST. I do think, however, that we need a huge amount of help at linebacker, safety or cornerback. It's just my opinion maybe I am seeing something wrong in our defense? As for Pollard that was a great move picking him up, but Will Demps and Deljuan Robinson were average at best. We need someone to help this defense out, a consistent player, there's gotta be a free agent out there to help..

    EDIT: Just saw it in another thread.

    There's no one. Hell, they went out & got Ogunleye a guy with a "name" & look at him thus far. pure, unadultered garbage.

    Okam can go be a lawyer or a fry cook or whatever it was that he wanted to be instead of a football player now. Best thing for everybody involved. It's time the Texans focused on drafting some really good defensive linem...... oh, never mind.

    Maybe we should bust out one of those drafts where we pick only DT's for 7 rounds? We can't pick them out of a crowd so maybe we should just go get a crowd and see who sticks.

    When youve failed at both drafting and free agency, it starts to look more and more like its the scheme

    At least they are making some moves, if one of these players can step up and get some pressure it will be a good thing.

    Maybe if we ask nicely, some other teams will just give us their good players.

    Not going to get too excited. Reading some things from Sheppard and he has 'steal' potential. Played in the SEC and was injured before the combine. Also seems to be a hard worker, he wants to be on the football field more than Okam so that's an improvement already.

    I have to admit, I'm disappointed in Big Frank. I thought he was going to bring us hugh value for that fifth round pick.

    Got any names yourself, or are you just creating this ideal free agent market where if you try real hard, you'll find a player who just so happens to not have a team, yet can improve your defense.

    Fact is, at this point in the season, outside of a few outliers and lucky breaks, players who have potential to help a team improve are, well, already on a team.
