If the Texans take Bush (1 Viewer)

I could see them keeping Morency and Dom - but is Wells a free agent who possibly may land elsewhere? Does he have value possibly as the backup to Warrick Dunn if they move Duckett?

 
I think they move Dom as well. Its not like they will be competitive next year, so there's no reason to keep Dom. They'll give Bush as many carries as he can handle, and use Dom's cap-room for OL help. That is, if they can forget they are the Texans and make better personnel decisions...

Better make sure Bush can handle a full load as a feature back - before shipping Dom Davis out the door!

Frankly, I don't think Dom can handle it either, but I don't think you'll get any better value for DD than right now. Sitting behind Bush will just push any memories of his ability into the background. I guess I'm just a fan of getting max value for a player you aren't going to use (might be just the way I run my Madden franchises though :D )
 
I think the Texans will be flexible with the entirety of their roster. But in all honesty, given Kubiak's history in Denver, I think he clearly understands the value of having multiple RBs who fit into your system. It would take a lot for them to let Davis walk away, at least in 2006.

 
I would definitely be on the phone with teams looking to deal Davis. I am surprised the Colts haven't inquired about his availability.

Bush and Morency would be solid, even better if they can keep Wells cheap.

Why would the Colts want Dom Davis? :confused: If they're going to let Edge James walk for salary cap reasons, they aren't going to bring in a lesser option for big $$$$ like Davis. Much like when they traded Faulk away, I'm sure the Colts [if they do in fact let Edge walk] will target one of the better RBs in this year's draft, someone akin to Maroney.

Right. Also, why would the Texans want to help out a divisional rival that may find themselves in trouble at RB?

If I am correct, I believe Davis's salary is very affordable for his talent, as I am sure players like Chester Taylor will be seeking more $$$. And James definitely will get a bigger deal.

The Colts could deal Faulk cause they had a top pick - the Colts pick could be empty for reliable rookie backs - if this is the case - a player like DOM would be decent - though the Texans would never deal within the division - I look for a player like Ahman Green to land there short term fix.

Again, Polian isn't going to let a dominant runner like Edge walk in exchange for an back of equivalent age who also has a massive workload under his belt. Laurence Maroney could EASILY be massively productive in that offense, as much if not more so than Dom Davis for a fraction of the cost.

Davis has only a $1.7mm pricetag next year. This will give the Texans two attractive options: 1) Decent trade value (...not to be confused with "great" trade value since some major RB's are hitting free agency this offseason)

...or...

2) Cheap insurance for the slim possibility that Bush is not the real deal.

DD's contract, however, jumps to $3.3mm in '07.

 
Draft Bush keep Davis and trade Morency. Rosenhaus is Morency's agent and has already hinted around about wanting out if they draft Bush.
