    Never played a full season as a starter. I hope we don't offer anything more then a 5th for him.

    If a starting DT is worth a 3rd and a 5th, what's a starting CB worth?

    Answer: More.

    I guess we'll find out how desperate the Texans are at CB. I don't see them spending the picks it will take to sign him, even though he has four years left on his deal and the base amounts aren't all that bad. I know they're dying over not having a second rounder this year. To give up even more picks .... I just don't see them doing it. At least I hope they don't.

    And yes, it would answer the CB question for this year's draft but look at what you're doing to the future by sending more of your picks out the door ...

    As long as there's a cap this isn't sound strategy. Now if the owners opt out, who cares? Be the Yankees for all I care. Just don't keep raising our parking cost.

    I was interested at looking at a 66 GTO until I saw the price tag. But I guess you could still list me as interested. The more teams that are listed as "interested" the more valuable the players become. Smith probably called, got the price, laughed, and hung up.

    No way do we spend a third on an injury prone CB that has only finished 1 complete season back in 2003.

    D-Rob will be back at the start of the season, so having a Lito Sheppard and D-Rob combo from Game 1 won't be bad at all. I would like that.

    He only missed 2 games last year. Just thinking would the 3rd you picked up if you traded Sage & trading our 1st for Philly's 2nd get the deal done?
    He's a former ALL-Pro.

    With the money they just gave Reeves and with Hutchins signing with Atl, he's the starter opposite Fred until if/when Dunta comes back. There will likely be another CB taken in the draft. Forget Lito. Ain't happening.
