    Here's a compiled list from Rotoworld of the top FAs avalaible at each position. It'd be great if someone has a detailed cap view of the Texans with possible options (cutting players and restructuring contracts).

    Who would you target? Who would you find to be realistic to sign?

    Side note: take your guess at the Jimmy Graham contract he'll recieve

    Quarterbacks

    Running Backs

    Fullbacks


    Wide Receivers

    Tight Ends


    Offensive Tackles

    Offensive Guards


    Centers



    Defensive Ends

    Defensive Tackles

    Outside Linebackers


    Inside Linebackers


    Cornerbacks


    Safeties

    Kickers


    Punters

    This is a great read for understanding our cap situation and possible moves to make which are going to be really small. My guess would be graham gets above gronks 6 yr/$55 ext prob 6 yr/$80 mill. http://http://overthecap.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/OTC-Texans-Financial-Report.pdf

    Would love to see the Texans bring in a veteran OT on the cheap. Let the Vet, Harris, Brennan Williams and maybe a draft pick compete for RT spot

    Holy crap, Graham is a free agent? NO is going to be strapped. Raji too? They've got to pay Rodgers and Mathews to ridiculous contracts already, they're screwed.

    Raiders have 70 million in cap space and no Al Davis.

    The OT position doesn't look half bad, more than a few starters on that list, more than that if we consider anyone who would be an upgrade over Newton a starter.

    But ho hum, somehow this 2-14 team is in cap hell, thanks Rick Smith.

    His knees are done.

    Receiver is one of the few positions we don't necessarily need help at.

    Chronic knee problems. No Thanks

    I think WR is the one of the few position we are probably ok at. I really like what i see with Posey when he gets on the field.

    Sam shields is a very good corner who won't be that expensive would like to get beason but don't see giants letting him leave Michael Bennett wouldn't be that expensive either and I would love to see if we can get either Malcolm Jenkins or major wright and James Starks should be affordable too

    Karlos Dansby is a guy I wanted to go after last year, and think we should pursue once again at ILB.

    Love Cush, but you need to use some kid gloves with the guy on his recovery this go round.

    In my opinion, there seems to be a nice number of return guys on the list that we could use (if cheap) but drafting one in the 6th round wouldn't be a bad option either. That's where we drafted Holliday in 2010.

    They should just make an expansion team like this.. this would be a competitive team.
