    I'm not sure its the right choice, but I'm not against it. I think some of you are underestimating how big a difference one good player can make. If we didn't get Hopkins there is zero chance we beat the 49ers or Seahawks and nobody is talking about us making the playoffs this year. Hell, just look at what happened to our defense when Budda got hurt. Completely different. One player can make or break a team, and Watt is still good from what I hear.

    Plus if we make a deep playoff run with both Watt and Hopkins it would destroy Texans' fan's souls.

    EDIT: Apparently its not Watt on this thread anymore? I'll take the Atlanta guy hands down.

    This isn’t the missing piece. Too much draft capital and money for a guy who’s physical prime is not now.

    Let the young DLmen play.

    CB would be the only spot I would take on major money this season.

    Stephone Gilmore would be the only major addition I would be happy with. Would give you a hell of a CB room and he would make it so Pat P doesn’t have you by the balls in the offseason

    I have no idea. He is under contract, but the guaranteed money is done so he may want a new deal.

    I would offer a 3rd, if they want more maybe a 2022 3rd that can become a 2nd if he meets certain criteria.

    CB2 is the weak link from what I can see.

    I think everyone is way off on what the cost would be. I think if Watt is actually on the market, the cost wouldn’t be more than a 4th or a 5th.

    No thanks on Gilmore..

    Agree on the Grady Jarrett thoughts in this thread.

    If Watt would play for 5-6 mil per year...yes. He is a productive role player at this point in his career and is only worth acquiring if he is willing to be paid like it.

    Only person on the trade market I would make a play for is Gilmore.

    re Watt? Here is the thing. If I could get him for a 5th - 7th pick, and he would take a salary reduction, he could help this defense like Corey Peters has done. That said I don't think the Texans would trade him for that and I don't believe he is interested in taking that sort of pay cut which is why it doesn't happen for any team.

    Watt isn't going to get traded unless he has asked them to move him to a contender. His value is about a 4th rounder right now...and why would Houston let him go for that? Another PR nightmare...and I think he brings some of the "leadership" stuff that we keep Larry on a big contract for.
