    I'd hate to be them right now. I'd hate to lose star players like that...that made the team a powerful team a few years ago.

    But that's what happens when you are 28 million over the cap.

    I would like to have Mason. He may not be the "speedster" that we need, but hes a football player. A damn good one.

    Rolle gets hurt, and stays hurt.
    Miller, no, he is old, and wouldnt be an upgrade.
    Carter is a 4-3 player. I think he will want to stay that way.
    Nedney - Have Brown.
    Holcomb - good player. But i dont think we need a pass catching FB. We dont have enough footballs for him.

    Since when did the Texans need more speed at WR? Did AJ (looked REALLY fast in the skill comp) Gaff, and BadFord suddenly slow down? How fast do you want it? You can't get much faster....

    Kevin Carter is a tweener DT/DE type, He can go to 3-4, or 4-3. It doesn't matter.

    Rolle is not as injury prone as you want to paint him. He has missed a few games here and there, most of them the past two years. He is one of the top cover corners in the NFL and can take guys out of the game.

    Any information coming out yet about either Steve McNair or Jeff Fisher and their future with the Titans?

    Im not sure if you were aware of this, but Bradford is probably packin. He was the "speedster" that ran off the DB's, and S's, so that Johnson could work his magic.

    Johnson is a burner with or without one opposite of him. And Gaff isn't exactly slow.
    Anyway, Leaving(hopefully) Staying, eitherway the Texans should focus on picking up on someone who can catch the ball and move the chains for first downs consistantly. Someone like a David Givens.

    The best of Both worlds would be Coles, but that's a little outside reality isn't it. ^_^

    We don't have cap room to sign a high-profile wide-reciever.
    The WR issue needs to be adressed in the draft, where he can groom behind Andre.

    I agree, but it would be lovely if we could get Dyson

    Robaire Smith came from the Titans. We got Gary Walker from the Jaguars in 02.

    This is more than a purge, this is a major flush in the Tack org. So how long do y'all think it will take them to be the Music City Miracles again? 2 years? 5 years? Next year (LOL!)? :hmmm:

    790 noted that McNair was working out from his surgery and that his contract has been restructured to "free up" $5 mil. They had John Clyton on and mentioned how it was better to release some of the higher contracts (obviously) while trying to keep the O-line intact for McNair.
