    I'll take Keith Traylor for a stop gap DT. This guy is still a hoss, put him between Mario and Amobi and watch him eat offensive lineman.

    The Panthers release Morgan & Wahle.

    No word on the fate of Mr. Mittens.

    The Denver Broncos released LB Warrick Holdman Monday, Feb. 11; link

    Great - A guy with Denver ties is now a FA - how long before he visits?

    Not to mention a native Houstonian.

    EDIT:

    From Wikipedia:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrick_Holdman

    Sounds like a cheap player. I wouldn't be suprised if we signed him. xD

    Houston ties as well (one of my clients).
    We could probably land him for a minimum. Was actually a decent player when with the Bears. Tapered off late in his career.

    Wouldn't suprise me if we took a look at him.

    Wasn't Joe Toledo a hot Tackle prospect at one time? What happened to him?

    You're think of Holy Toledo. This was his little brother Joe - not so good. :gun:

    "For a big man, Toledo is exceptionally athletic, with an ideal body for an offensive tackle. At his collegiate workout day, he reportedly ran a 4.76 in the 40, which is unheard of in a man his size. His athleticism is balanced by his lack of experience at tackle and it will probably take time to develop him into a complete offensive lineman. "

    *************************************
    Yea that's his AchillesÂ’ heel for sure, he's very injury prone. In college and then the NFL.
    But because of his athleticism he's got ZB written all over him and new OC &
    OLine guru Gibbs may like his physical profile enough and decide the Texans should try to sign him.

    Were the Texans interested in LJ Shelton within last couple of years? Does he have any talents left?

    Andre Ware mentioned this morning that LJ Shelton tried out for the Texans preceeding the 2-14 season. He (Andre) also said at the time, he thought that the Texans would sign Shelton.... FWIW.
