Jake is a little busy today, so I'm going to put the headset and clipboard down and head out on the field for today's daily links.

Not a ton of news out there, but some developments on the Shaun Rogers story, the Titans continuing to implode and Arian Foster becoming an exclusive rights free agent.

It all begins after the jump.

On Vandermeer and Lopez yesterday, new free agent Shaun Rogers stated it would "be a fairy tale" to play for the Texans. Hopefully Bob & Co. were listening. Both Diehard Chris and Patrick from Texans Tribune voiced their opinions on the matter.

Arian Foster is now an exclusive rights free agent. But take a deep breath--an ERFA is a player whose contract has expired and has three or fewer tenured years in the league. Therefore, his original team must make a contract offer by the league-imposed deadline or the player becomes an unrestricted free agent. I think it is a safe bet he will be wearing Battle Red in 2011 (if there is indeed a season).

Alan Burge continued his Texans draft watch preview by doing a write-up on University of Georgia OLB Justin Houston.

Daniel Charles over at SBN Houston takes a look at some potential gems in draft rounds other than the first.

Paul Kuharsky lets us leech off his ESPN Insider membership and tells us who Todd McShay has the Texans drafting at number eleven overall in April.

Scott Robinson at the Chronicle continues to baffle us all as to how he earned the position "writing" there.

And last, and certainly least, is the news that the BESFs are in talks with exiled Texans defensive coordinator Frank Bush for a job on next year's coaching staff. Good. Luck. With. That.

And, just for a bonus, I know it isn't Texans news but it needs to be brought up for the morale of Houston sports fans everywhere that Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan resigned yesterday (Whoo-Hoo!!!).  Our boy grungedave on The Dream Shake had plenty to say on the issue. It is a victory for Houston sports fans everywhere, even if they aren't NBA fans.
