Sarah has always been an athlete. Her dad put her on her first soccer team when she was three and since then has always been in love with the sport. Her mom was a single mom and so to keep the kids busy after school Sarah signed up for every sport her school offered, up until 8th grade but when she got to High School, she found her true love, running.
As a Semi-state cross country runner Sarah was known for her Pep talks before races. When she got to college she said good buy to sports but found running again after losing her brother in 2010. Since then she has become an ambassador the Houston Marathon and now serves as the in Stadium announcer for the Houston Dash.
“The game will change but if you love it, you’ll find a way to stay in it”.
NFL free agency is right around the corner and the Houston Texans have a ton of salary cap space. Not to mention, it was announced on Friday the NFL is raising the salary cap to $255.4 million, an increase over 13%.
PFF has the Texans with the 7th-most cap space in the NFL at $67.5 million. So what should the Texans do with all of that money?
Several players have already been connected to the Texans. Houston is the betting favorite to land Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans, according to bookies.com.
And Giants running back Saquon Barkley has been rumored to have interest in joining the Texans after he followed many players on social media like Brevin Jordan, CJ Stroud, Nico Collins, and others.
But in the video above, Craig from Sports Talk Extra makes his case for the Texans to address the front seven. But not in the typical way by adding a defensive lineman. He believes DeMeco Ryans will have interest in signing Panthers middle linebacker Frankie Luvu based on an article he read of Texans Wire.
Luvu was originally an edge defender for the Jets, but now is an interior linebacker who has seen a ton of success over the last two years with Carolina. He's recorded over 100 tackles in his last two seasons, and also sacked the quarterback 5.5 times last season, and 7 times in 2022. You don't find many players with both that many tackles and sacks.
Linebacker Denzel Perryman struggled in coverage for the Texans last year, dealt with injuries, and is 31 years old. So with his contract now expired, the Texans should look to upgrade.
Spotrack has Luvu's market value at $11.2 million/year. They believe he will command a deal in the 4-year, $40 million range.
So should the Texans make the deal?
