No. Teams have to offer up any 5 players who were on their 53 man roster. However, the expansion team can only take up to 2 players from any one team.

The benefit for the offering team is that the player that is chosen has his salary completely wiped away from that team. Meaning, no dead money. So a team can clear space very easily. Thus, there is an incentive for teams to offer up solid role players, possibly a few starters. And the expansion team can acquire NFL-worthy talent to build around.


That's how the texans got mr badass tony boselli. Argueably the best at the time for the LT position. Then he got his season ender! Wow imagine if carr had him blocking his blindside all those yrs. It coulda been a different ball game for carr


What other bad ass players did they get that year? I only remember Boselli and of course Carr. Did they also get the number one pick that year?

Carr was their first pick in the draft.

The players selected via the expansion draft were as follows (previous team is listed as well)

1 Tony Boselli OT Jaguars
2 Ryan Young OT Jets
3 Aaron Glenn CB Jets
4 Gary Walker DT Jaguars
5 Jamie Sharper LB Ravens
6 Jermaine Lewis WR Ravens
7 Marcus Coleman CB Jets
8 Seth Payne DT Jaguars
9 Matt Campbell OG Redskins
10 Matt Stevens S Patriots
11 Jeremy McKinney OG Browns
12 Ryan Schau OT Eagles
13 Charlie Rogers RB Seahawks
14 Sean McDermott TE Buccaneers
15 Jabari Issa DE Cardinals
16 Avion Black WR Bills
17 Danny Wuerffel QB Bears
18 Brian Allen LB Rams
19 Johnny Huggins TE Cowboys

Didn't they pick up corey bradford as well? Or was he just a free agent signing?

Ed Reed has (as recently as this off-season) voiced that he would have no problem walking away from the game/retiring and Brady is 32 and yet to comeback from a year-long injury.



I'll take:
A) Tom Brady and Ed Reed
or
B) Peyton Manning and Patrick Willis

Really doubt Reed would do that, and I would take a 38 year old Tom Brady over what we've got any day.

Why would you doubt that? He sees the "Big Picture," (ie, beyond football). True, he hasn't done it (yet), but selecting him- for the sake of this conversation/thread- would be "too little, too late," IMO.

Edward Lee, of The Baltimore Sun, reports Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed said he has thought about retiring after each of the last two seasons but the love of the game has kept him coming back to play. "I've been contemplating sitting out for the last two years and hanging up the cleats and stuff. When you start to think about those things, you start to put things in perspective. You start looking for other things to do outside of football," Reed said.

And that's why I doubt that, "Love of the game". Even if he did retire, I would also have no doubt he'd be right back. Shoot, all of us LOVE the game and we don't even play in the NFL, AND he's getting paid BANK to do it. Unless he gets hired by Fox, NBC, ESPN or NFL Network as a sports commentator, than maybe I could see him retired.

No doubt he's the best in the league as his position, but I might need a few years out of this (phantom pick), and once the mind goes, the body's soon to follow.

btw, since there's no UofH thread (yet), what'd you think of McMackin's press conference. Poor guy gushed like Hanauma Falls in late April.

Defensive player - Revis (CB from Jets) - I think he is a top 5 CB in the league, and will be the top CB in couple of years. Reminds me of Champ Bailey with better run support. Nnamdi Asomugha will be a strong consideration, but age of Revis worked against Nnamdi.

Offensive player - Ryan Clady (OT from Broncos) - Best young OT in NFL, better than Joe Thomas. Gave up just half a sack in his rookie year while starting every game. What a beast.

Draft the top QB with the first pick in 2010 draft.

Have to disagree with Clady being better than Thomas at this point. Clady did surrender less sacks (I believe JT gave up 4 sacks in each of his first 2 years) but the quality of pass rushers each faced last year by comparing their schedules (Cleveland also has the luck of facing 2 of the top defensive teams in the league twice a year) that Thomas had go against better competition. Both are great young lineman who will be great players to watch over the next 10+ years but at this point I think Thomas is the more complete and effective of the 2.

As for your selections there is absolutely no knock from me there and it is similar to what I selected (Thomas and Polomalu) and would be a formidable foundation to build around.

This is serious thinking. When you are building a team from scratch you need to start with the bedrock. I don't think you even look at the receivers or backs. You start to put into place a line. If you take a great qb and put him behind a poor line you lose your investment.

On D, CB is an option. But if I am playing 3 - 4 I want a great NT and if 4 - 3 I want a great DE to disrupt the Qb. I know heart says Willis but mind says consider the importance of the position.

Good thread
Im surprised that im the only one who said andrd johnson. for a few years now hes basically been single handedly making the texans a respectable team.
