The Texans jumped into the free agent market with both feet, agreeing to deals with offensive tackle Todd Wade and defensive tackle Robaire Smith on the first day of the signing period. Wade, a former Dolphin, signed a six-year, $30 million contract with a $10 million signing bonus. He will replace UFA Greg Randall at right tackle. Houston also robbed division rival Tennessee, wooing Smith with a six-year deal worth $26.3 million, including an $8 million signing bonus. Smith will join Gary Walker and Seth Payne, both of whom were injured much of last season, to give the Texans a solid defensive front.
The Texans struck quickly in upgrading the weakest areas of their club—the lines. With developing young stars at the "skill" positions, Houston is poised to make some noise in the AFC South.
Robaire is definitely a good signing, I would have loved him in Washington. AFC South is definitely the sleeper division in 2004. The floor might drop out of Tennessee since Indy is still Indy, Houston and Jacksonville are young and improving and the Titans have done nothing but age this offseason.
