    Texans fans:
    I did up a comprehensive preview of your team's off-season outlook. I know not everyone will agree with my opinions, but that's what makes sports talk great! I hope the analysis is worth your time reading:

    Thank you. My goal with these write-ups is to give fans a quick, fact based snapshot of where their team stands salary cap wise, then give some reasoning behind the opinions I have.

    I am really glad you enjoyed the article.

    Enjoyed the read especially as I agree with most of it. lol. I have posted I'd like to see an offer to Dwayne Bowe but not if Chiefs tag him as expected. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/7...fs-franchise-dwayne-bowe-two-sides-reach-deal

    The $9.5m tag indicates he could get $7m first year of a long term contract. I think Mario will be re-signed at about $8m- $10m (1st season) and leave enough from his 2011 cap to get a WR and maybe a OG.

    For some reason I think Myers will be back. He should get a good raise and he is fitting in well with accolades with this line up. Same with Briesel.

    Cutting Jacoby & Leinert + Foster's 2011 salary give you Arian Foster (about $7m same as tag) without going outside cap or adjusting other players contracts.

    As Texans have said that Olsen has been greenlighted to get creative, we should be able to bring back whom they want. Walters is interesting as he runs the best routes of WRs and has good hands. He continuously takes away a defender and still produces & s why he got the new contract. Could another do as well cheaper. That is the question.

    OD? This is perplexing to me as I really like him. Still, Dreesen proved more than adequate when Daniels was out.

    You'll have to excuse Dutchrudder. He's got...well...some kinda screwed up color of glasses on. They're so far past rosy that they might be ultraviolet.
