    Anyway, back on topic...you mentioned getting a RB in return in a trade for Wallace. The Texans just signed Arian Foster to a new 5 year deal worth $43.5M ($20.75M guaranteed). After missing his rookie year due to injury, Ben Tate showed what he is capable of last season, rushing 175 times for 942 yards (5.4 YPC avg) and 4 TD's. Last season, Rashard Mendenhall rushed 228 times for 928 yards (4.1 YPC avg) and 9 TD's. So Tate outrushed Mendenhall, even though Mendenhall had over 50 more attempts (Mendenhall had 15 starts, Tate had 2 starts).

    The Texans need someone to stretch the field opposite Andre Johnson (Kevin Walter is a possession guy, not a deep threat). Houston will be okay with Justin Forsett as the primary backup behind Foster, and we could even throw in, say, Jonathan Dwyer to be their #3 RB for further depth. In exchange for that, we could request their 4th round pick in the draft a couple of months ago, WR Keshawn Martin (who we brought to Pittsburgh for a pre-draft visit), to be our #4 WR behind Brown, Sanders, and Cotchery.

    WR Mike Wallace and RB Jonathan Dwyer for RB Ben Tate and WR Keshawn Martin. I would still rather keep Wallace, but I figured I'd throw it out there as an alternate to Percy Harvin for the time being.
    Well thought out. I could buy a deal like that versus way overpaying Wallace and screwing up the cap.
