Don't get me wrong, I like the way AJ played last year and think he can really help us if he can duplicate that here, but am I the only one hesitant to give an UDFA with 1 good year of play as a starter $10M a year contract and then rely on him as the 2nd most important piece of our defensive puzzle?Word is he'll get 10M-12M. That's who we need to sign. I hope he's priority #1 for us this offseason.
Make it happen.
That part scares the crap out of me when I think about signing him to a #1 CB contract.Really difficult spot for Houston. They have Jonathan Joseph, Kareem Jackson and Kevin Johnson that are all quality NFL CBs. Then out of nowehere this UDFA is a top 5 guy. Now they have to weigh the decision of keep the stud at a huge contract, or let him walk without anything. I wish if they keep him, they'd deal us one of those other guys for a 3/4th round pick..
Case could also be made that the consistent pressure Houston's defensive front is able to put on QBs contributes to their CBs looking better than they are isolated trying to cover. Bouye could be a one-year wonder if he goes elsewhere.
I am cooling fast on Barnett. He is an edge guy that's bread and butter is pass rushing, but as the year progressed, the dude started to get a serious gut. I will be interested to see how he shows up at the combine because a dude adding unhealthy weight during the course of a season is scary.The first of a few affordable free agent CBs whose "stock arrow" is apparently pointing upward. Corner in FA, Barnett in the first round is the ideal combo to me these days.

#3 CB according to PFF. Allowed just 50.5% of passes thrown his way to be caught (including the postseason).Did he have a good year? I looked at the stats and he only had 1 int last season. Granted, I know absolutely nothing about him, since I only watch the saints...
I think $10M/year would be a steal.I think he is certainly capable of being a #1. He genuinely shut down Ty Hilton, Emmanuel Sanders, Travis Kelce and Amari Cooper. That is a wide variety of skill sets. He also did quite well against Demaryius Thomas, who absolutely smoked Breaux in their matchup.
