    Genius O’Brien really needed to pay Randall Cobb $10 million a year. Only to bench him and give Keke Coutee the start over him (until Keke got put in the doghouse again). Gift that keeps on giving.

    I was thinking about this. It would be a perfect fit. You can't go wrong with a Correa, need some Puerto Rican Swag in the Linebacker core. I know what you guys are thinking : "Bro, he was born in Hawaii".
    He was good enough to get an extension from the Titans after getting 2 sacks in the playoffs last season. It could be he was the one that got a massage and transmitted the virus. I welcome a Correa always.
    Nothing to loose by bringing him in. Cole is bound to get hurt

    He brings a real pass rush ability like Jacob Martin.

    NFL trade deadline offers: 13 proposals for players who could get dealt in 2020, including Sam Darnold, Dwayne Haskins, Zach Ertz

    Texans trade Kenny Stills to Packers
    Green Bay Packers get: WR Kenny Stills
    Houston Texans get: 2021 sixth-round pick

    I pitched the idea of Stills joining the Packers over the summer, given that the Texans were locked in with Randall Cobb, Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller as their top three wideouts. Stills was in line to play if the Texans lost one of those guys to injuries, but with a base salary of nearly $7 million, he represented an expensive insurance policy. He has played only 36% of the offensive snaps this season, and with Bill O'Brien gone and 1-4 Houston out of the playoff picture, the franchise should be trying to find ways to save cash and cap space to roll over to next year's team.

    The Packers, meanwhile, are 4-0 and looking like a Super Bowl contender. Aaron Rodgers has done just fine without Davante Adams for most of the season, but they also have lost Devin Funchess to an opt-out and Allen Lazard to core surgery. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has struggled with drops, and with Rodgers looking like his old self as a downfield passer, getting him another weapon wouldn't hurt. Stills would cost a little under $5 million in prorated base salary, which is why general manager Brian Gutekunst would send only a sixth-round selection.

    a 6th round pick? I'd rather keep him. Do I look like O'brian, motherf'ers at espen!
    Give me a 4th and your most disgruntled defensive back.

    Five NFL Trade Deadline Deals We'd Love to See

    J.J. Watt to the Packers
    The freewheeling Texans now have bills to pay after their wild two-year trade streak, which involved sending some of the franchise’s best and most productive players elsewhere for, well, not so much. I understand adding another trade to the mix, especially one shipping out J.J. Watt, would be considered somewhat sacrilegious in Texas. Watt has been the face of the franchise for nearly a decade. It was reportedly his willingness to spar with O’Brien that got the coach ousted in the first place. However, this move could be spun as a win-win. Houston would reclaim some much-needed draft capital and the Packers, who are currently 30th in pass rush win rate, could bring Watt back to the state where he grew up, played college football and still keeps an offseason home. Sending Watt back home to an undefeated contender would be one of the rare moves the Texans can make that could ship out a franchise icon but leave the organization and its fans with as positive a taste in their mouths as possible. Deshaun Watson will be a major draw for the team’s next head coach and general manager, but it couldn’t hurt to improve the pick stockpile, even moderately, before the search begins.

    If Texans lose today, moves should be made as the season is all but over. Gaining some draft capital for the next GM is ideal, especially if we can offload a bloated contract or two in the process.

    And then pray you can get replacement level play from UDFA/retreads?

    Totally mismanaged the cap and D4's rookie contract.
