According to Texans Cap, Houston has $50.724 million in cap space remaining.

It’s expected that Zach Fulton’s deal will be worth $7.5 million a year. Let’s say Bruce Ellington signed for a max of $2 million in 2018. Houston should have around $41 million left to spend without taking into account Jadeveon Clowney’s possible extension and rookie contracts.

That’s still a lot! There are multiple holes and players available. Today we will be watching to see if Houston picks up E.J. Gaines, finds a backup quarterback, brings in a tight end to visit, makes any additional cuts (they are so going to keep Jeff Allen around for another year), or talks with Tyrann Mathieu, a real football guy who’s allegedly looking for more than money.

The third official day of free agency has begun. This is your live tracker for NFL free agent signings. Add your two cents, either in the way of opinion or actual signings you see reported, in the space below. We’ll do our best to update this post as news breaks.
