    With the official start of free agency 1 day and 23 hours away, who do you think the Texans first free agent signing will be??

    The one free agent I really hope we take a good run at is Ken Hamlin of the Seahawks.

    We really need a FS, I would be happy to get Landry @ 8 but if we get Hamlin that is one box well ticked and we can look at other needs at 8.

    I think Deon Grant has a better chance of being signed, cheaper but still a play maker. Drafting a corner would bring a balance of youth and veteran leadership to the secondary.

    I also would like to see a veteran RB, like AGreen be brought in also.

    Hamlin, Lewis, or Grant. Draft Landry unless Brown is there.

    Nai'l Diggs from Carolina looks good.

    A second tier CB.

    Rohan Davey would be great. (gotta keep pimping that UFA former LSU starter from Ariz). Other then Rusell and Quinn. The QB class is lacking. This guy will sign less then both. Save a draft pick. Has NFL experience sorta.

    any solid line hep is greatly appreciated.

    We already have a vet in Dayne. And would we want to carry 4 RBs?

    I don't know as far as FA goes. I'm really hoping we keep Dayne and don't sign a FA FS. I used to want us to sign hamlin but after landry's combine i'm hoping we draft him...so let's go a different route in FA????? please.

    A lot fo the Titans fans are wanting Ken Hamlin to replace Thompson who is horrible. Fisher already said he's stayign with the safties we have so If you guys can pick up Hamlin and a Vet corner to help out robinson that might be your easiest quickest way to get better faster. Good luck next season.

    I hope we go all out for Nate Clements, that would make our offseason for me. Then in the first, get Landry, second get Rufus Alexander, third get Jason Hill, and in the fourth the best DT available and I would be very happy with the offseason.

    If we aquire nate clements then that will prob be the only off season move we would make because he is wanting so much, I would rather go another route.

    I hope it isn't Steinbach or Dielman.

    They are getting crazy money thrown at them.

    I don't want that to be the Texans.

    A significant bonus and $8million for first year of a five year contract would allow us to be under the projected $13m and that is before the cap bump for 07 and any renegotiated contracts. We should go hard at NC to solve the majority of our D issues. If we get him we do not have to change our safeties this year.

    We cant afford any of the top tier FA's, the only one I would be willing to look at is Hamllin, since its such a big hole on our team and FS is not that expenssive of a position. Also, I wouldnt mind us picking up Luke Pettigout and teaming him up with Charles Spencer to soldify our tackle position for a couple years. Michael Lewis out of Philly would be welcomed, but not needed as badly as Hamlin. A second CB would also be welcomed, such as Nick Harper or Macklin from Arizona.

    You beat me to it. FS is a huge hole on this team & free agent FS's come a lot cheaper than any other position that we need. Hamlin would fill a huge hole from the get-go & he's my choice for the first FA signed.

    SIgn the best F/A safety and we still need a corner. Sign a top F/A corner and you do not need to sign another safety.
