NFL teams can now officially tamper. They can enter contract negotiations and come to terms with players. It’s now time to scroll around on Twitter.
For Houston, there isn’t much to look at in the way of pending free agents. Everyone who’s unrestricted isn’t monumentally important to the team. They still have cuts to be made, though. The big theme today, and for the rest of this week, is how is Houston going to spend their cap space to improve this roster immediately. According to Over The Cap, the Texans have $65,723,753.00 available to spend.
In the meantime, please use this space to discuss or pass along any news, rumors, or rank speculation about NFL free agency. As always, take everything with a grain of salt until it’s confirmed by a source with a proven track record. Until then, the floor is open to you.
UPDATE: Something finally happened. Houston is linked to potentially signing free agent offensive lineman Zach Fulton at $7 million a year. I know what Rapoport is saying, but it would more than likely be for him to play right or left guard with the Texans, depending on what happens with Jeff Allen.
The #Texans are the favorites to sign former #Chiefs OL Zach Fulton to a multi-year deal worth more than $7M per year, source said. He should play center for them. Other teams are in the mix, but Houston is the likely landing spot.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 12, 2018

UPDATE: The Texans are also interested in every Patriots’ free agent on the market. Nate Solder and Malcolm Butler have been reported as Texans targets. I’m sure they are interested in Dion Lewis as well.
Texans are making a strong run at LT Nate Solder. They’re desperate for a new LT. They started 5 LTs last season.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) March 12, 2018
