    Bair+Watt would be like trying to throw through a fan. Kind of lean for a D lineman though if you're trying to beef up the line.

    Bair is ~ 6'6" to 6'7" 280. Mario was listed at 6'6" to 6'7" 288. JJ is listed at 6'5" 295. Bair led the entire Pac 10 in tackles for loss in 2010, He could still fit the bill under the guidance of a Wade led defense.

    Bair would be a solid pick-up. He is good on special teams & can block some balls himself. They might start calling the Texans D the "S'Watt Team".

    I'm assuming Holliday's roster spot is the one most likeliest to be freed up if they sign one of those later.

    That's already being kicked around in the media.

    Bair has talent.

    I wanted Rick to spend the Mr. Irrelevant pick on Bair or Herzlich.

    Or maybe they were doing their due diligence in case Antonio was suspended...

    They're just checking out and grading FA players for future reference in case a need should arise, being prepared. I don't know anything about Bair but he sounds interesting. Has he got any speed or quickness? I can't help but think though that with his size if he had any potential he'd be on a roster somewhere.

    Bair should at least be stashed on the PT squad. I've watched him play plenty of times, not only does he fit in Wade Phillips system he would be another interesting character fit in clubhouse. Take similar path as Tim Jamision who worked hard & eventually core player on 53 man roster. I'm not saying he could be the next Ted Hendricks, who was all of 220lbs @ 6-7, but I would love to see him stick around here awhile :)

    the general pattern over time is to bring a different position group every week. Most of the time, Tuesday tryout is not immediate need nor signing driven.

    I think he's on the Raiders PS right now. We can't get him unless it is to the 53 right?

    ............for 3 weeks. After that, we can keep him on the 53, release him or actually put him on our own PS.

    He sounds like a guy with potential but with Crick and Jamison on the roster as 3-4 DE backups, I don't see room on the roster for Bair. Kubiak also seems to favor guys who already know the teams system, like training some guy for a couple weeks is some major inconvenience.

    Hey Doc, you lost all argumentative credibility by comparing him to Mario. :kitten:

    I don't think it was Gary that was choosing those defensive players prior to Wade. I think it was Bush and Richard Smith before him.

    Looks like I am not the only one thinking the Miami game was Hollidays mulligan.
