    OL: 1-2 Top FA, it'll happen, I hope.
    TE: some guys out there in FA, could also use draft
    RB: Miller does need help, wouldn't mind AP on the cheap and sign a Danny Woodhead.
    ST: DRAFT

    It'll be a different team next year. BETTER.

    Honestly, could be looked at as a double signing. Getting Colvin almost forces the Texans to put Jackson at Safety. Outside of Tre Boston and Demps I don't know who we could have put back there better than Jackson. Still think we should grab Demps, I bet he comes here for almost nothing...

    Instantly one of our best CB.

    Coulda just kept AJ but at least Gaines is headed in the right direction.

    Last words I saw from him was after he was released by the Bears. "back in houston, wanting to stay" stuff like that..

    Of course hes saying that. Hes also retweeting Texans fans wanting him back. I dont have a problem with him leaving for more money, but I remember him saying something about the org after signing with the bears and after we picked him up off the street trash heap.

    Should be an easier situation for Colvin in Houston with very little talent on the outside, he should be targeted a lot less frequently than he was last season.

    Yep, that's what I thought. He wants to be a complete corner. I believe in him.

    Why would signing Colvin force Jackson to Safety?

    U think Texans should trade down in 3rd and acquire more picks? I feel like there isn’t many ways to improve the team

    Well he was a really good slot corner, much better than Jackson, so you either try Colvin outside where he is unproven or you move Jackson outside where he gets beat or to safety where he has been pretty good.. Seems logical to me.
