    Ty Warren, who grew up in Bryan and played at Texas A&M, an hour from Houston, is visiting the Texans on Monday.

    If healthy Warren will be the best 5 tech on the team.

    Make it happen Smithiak. If he can stay healthy, he is better than anyone on the roster in that DE spot. This would almost make up for the Leach failure.

    I would still like a JAG vet for CB#2. I know we can't spend big money there, but a veteran guy that won't embarrass himself is needed before I start to get excited. That is the one obvious glaring hole left on paper.

    Sign Warren and Cromartie and then call it a day.

    Be nice to pick up Carlos Rogers or Hayden although they both have injury issues.

    I'm more worried about the ILB and the NT spots.

    I don't think there is much cap space left so they're going to have to do it for cheap money. Cutting Okoye and Anderson did free some money up but I wonder if it's enough to sign him.

    We're are most definately out of the Cromartie race, we've got limited money and still have to get the 90 bodies for camp

    I'd just sign Ty I was not too serious about us getting Cromartie though.

    I'm not interested in Warren.

    Carlos Rogers is who I'd be bringing in.

    Don't forget safeties. We could bring in Dashon Goldson and shift Quin back to CB2. Joseph knows Goldson.

    Not interested in a guy with experience in the new defense we are going to be implementing, who also happens to come from a winning program? This is exactly the type of signing we need to be making, assuming, of course, that he is healthy enough to play.

    He's indicated he'll play at or near the veteran minimum, he's got two Super Bowl rings, and comes from a background of winning and excellence. And he plays a position I think if nothing else, we could use some depth.

    Yeah, for some reason, it does conjure up a thought or two of Roosevelt Colvin, and Cato June (and who knows - maybe even Eugene Wilson), and there is an injury concern, but under the circumstances, it appears to be a low-risk, high-reward deal if it happens.

    He is not experienced in the defense we are running. He has played in the same front, but I'm pretty sure wade doesn't run the same type of defense as NE.

    It's not completely out of the realm of possibility that this guy Is healthy and good to go, but he missed last year with what some are calling a degenerative injury, failed his physical this year.

    The last couple guys we brought in that were NE cast offs have not worked. Colvin and Wilson.

    If they sign him to a reasonable deal fine. But I'd rather not sign him to a deal that would hurt us if we cut him in camp. Really I'd rather not sign him at all and find a nt, ilb, and vet cb or as pencil neck said, a safety.

    As of right now, I think we have around 80 players on the roster. The area they are really deficient in is DT. I'm not sure if the roster is updated frequently but the only tackles they are taking to camp right now are Shaun Cody, Damione Lewis & Earl Mitchell. I can see them signing Warren and using him as a DT. They do have plenty of room to add Cromartie but as you said, there is limited money. I think Warren would be the better choice to spend your last "big" splash of money on as opposed to for Cromartie. Not to say they couldn't use Cromartie but they really need to shore up the DT position in my opinion.

    If this were to happen then all our draft picks and free agents would be solely on defense this year. I am not talking about UDFA just FA.
