Texans off-season thread

Recommended Posts

Just some other Texan related cuts:

  • Xavier Suk'a Fila - suckage confirmed
  • John Simon - should have learned from AJ that going to the Colts is a BAD career move
  • Devier Posey - guess that Grey Cup MVP doesn't quite count as a comeback
  • Corey Coleman - Fuller looking pretty good amongst 2016 1st round class of Coleman, Doctson, Treadwell
  • Garrett Gilbert/ Kyle Allen - so Texans QB #4 and 2nd half starter vs Pitt last year Tyler Heinicke is backing up former MVP
  • Robert Nelson - remember when he was gunna be the next Bouye?

Pats waived Mike Gillessee - I'm not a fan of any of our RBs, and wouldn't mind bringing in Gillessee to take some carries.

I'd rather Bo Scarborough. Loved him at Bama and Cowboys were dumb to cut him.

I loved him at 'Bama too, but wonder how much of his game was predicated on that monster Alabama OL. 

I really don't expect anything from our run game no matter who would be brought in - the OL is an issue, but none of our RBs are anything special. We really have to consider drafting a guy very high, even if D'Onta Foreman comes back and looks like he's returned to form (which is highly unlikely in itself - his injury is a death sentence, given his position).

Tevin Coleman is a FA, as long as he doesn't expect franchise RB money (which he'll be looking for, actually) he would probably be a great pickup. Mark Ingram will be on his way out in New Orleans after this season as well - he had some big moments for the Saints over the last two seasons, but is a suspension risk - so he's a potential add to this unit as well.

I don't expect Bo to be the answer at #1 or anything, but he is a freaking mac truck. We need a true inside running presence and someone that can get the job done in goal line and short yardage.

Ya, he's an upgrade over Blue all day

I would take a chance on Jonathan Williams.  He was pretty good in the preseason for the Saints.  Shocked they cut him.

As long as he has 2 working arms he should give us help at CB.
