DD can't be put on the PUP because he passed a physical earlier this offseason. You can only be put on PUP if you failed the physical. So it's either keep him on the roster, cut him, or injured reserve.

I don't have any written confirmation yet, but rumor has spread like wildfire across several message boards I frequently visit.

And Jeff Fisher just announced Travis Henry as their week 1 starter out of the blue.

Maybe the 2 teams are just finalizing the paperwork before it's officially announced.

Well Kubiak said Lundy will be the starting running back so I don't see why they would trade for Chris Brown. Lundy will be backed up by Morency so how much playing time would Brown really see if this rumor were true? Unless they are really desperate and they don't think Lundy or Morency will cut it for an entire season. I don't know..it's just a rumor for now.

Well of course Kubaik had to announce a player we had as a starter, and it was Lundy by default. This doesn't mean Kubiak is sold on Lundy (a 6th round rookie). Brown would be a nice upgrade. He's a good pass catcher too. I think he'd start right away with Lundy and Morency backing him up.

Oh yeah, and DD will be be going bye bye!

Hey I like Chris Brown too. I followed him since his days in Colorado and I think he'd fit in perfectly with our scheme. He has the injury bug and I don't know how healthy he is but if it were true I would be happy with Brown. I don't see him starting right away but probably by week 2 or 3.

Above link is really old back before TC. - been around a few times....

Back then Iwas hoping Thomas Jones would shake loose of the Bears since Benson was named starter and Jones asked for a trade, but cedric got injured - again... So jones is back at starter, but maybe next year he might get free for a good trade. Something to look at in the future for sure when Benson is healthy again. I'm sure Jones will push a trade real hard next year if he's not given equal consideration as starter.

On Brown trade - Havent found a direct link stating the trade info, but here is a link to the Titans naming Travis Henry as their starter for the first game. Alot of head scratching and speculation going on at the 'Tacks' board about this move after his play in game 3. Sure early on he was asking for a trade, but later said he wanted to stay a Titan long term - Fans @ the 'Tack-board' are talking like its a good thing to trade Volek and Brown to get depth for the team. I think Brown just wants a solid contract and not have to move around alot and with 2 other starters competing in Tenn - its gonna be hard to get reps.

They also are reporting our rumor that were getting Brown.

IMHO doubtful we will get Brown as its not usual for teams to trade with a division rival.

Here's two other articles - Basically it says they are going to play alot of Henry and White with Brown mixed in this past weekend. The supposed ideal here is they are showcasing Henry for a possible trade and they think Brown isnt going anywhere and that none of the 3 backs have seperated themselves much to be the starter.

http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=200660824022

----

Titans Coach Jeff Fisher is changing the order in which he’ll use his running backs this weekend.

Instead of going with Chris Brown early, fans will see a lot of Travis Henry and White, with Brown mixed in.

One can’t help but wonder: are the Titans showcasing Henry?

Chances are, Brown isn’t going anywhere, despite attempts by his agent to get him traded.

The coaching staff is high on White, and his availability on special teams gives him a good chance of being active on Sundays.

Already, Fisher has said the Titans might not be able to dress three running backs on Sundays.

If Henry looks good, the Titans might get some phone calls from teams needing a back.

-----

http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=200660828029

Training camp and the first three preseason games have done little to settle the debate over whether Chris Brown, Travis Henry or LenDale White should be the starting running back.

Henry is the only one who has scored a touchdown but his 2.5 yards per carry average is the worst of three. Brown has averaged 4.3 yards, but he has done all of his running behind the starting offensive line.

Not only has no one emerged as a clear-cut leader but there also is no one who obviously is worse than the others. Trying to pick a pecking order is like trying figure out on which wall paint dries the fastest. There has been nothing exciting about their competition.

I'm not going to get excited about a completely groundless rumor but I'd like to ask everyone what their thoughts are of Chris Brown in this system. I'm often guilty of not paying attention to football that doesn't directly involve the Texans so I see Chris Brown twice a year if I'm lucky and the rest of the time I'm not paying much attention to him.

What do you guys think he'd do in this system? Would he be a good fit?

While I would like to have Chris Brown, I have to agree. If we do trade for Chris Brown it better be a low pick/player. We don't need Brown unless they're really trying to get rid of him and we're going to get a good deal out of it. Kubiak has shown with the fact that Davis could get cut that he has all the confidence in Lundy and Morency and that they could handle the load. I wouldn't understand if we used a pick to get a RB when we don't even need one and when we do need a CB. Us trading for him a few months ago would have been logical, but with our situation right now, I couldn't believe it if I see it.

I see no logic on the field or fiscally for Chris Brown to come here. With us about to eat DD's contract, which would precipitate this move based on DD's lack of health, why would we put ourselves more at risk at the RB position, which is not a need, for a RB that has had nagging pains through his career? What RB do you know of has had success in the ZBS that runs upright like him. Moreover, he is three inches taller than any of the other recent ZBS backs.

Brown 6'3 220
Anderson 6'0'' 230
D Davis 5'7'' 227
Droughans 5'11'' 220
Duckett 6'0'' 254
Dunn 5'9'' 180
Terrell Davis 5'11'' 210
O Gary 5'11'' 218
T Bell 5'11'' 213

The only commonality that I see is Brown went to Colorado and the Denver South staff may know him pretty well as a player and person.

Snoper Toro says this is a virtual myth. :)

I think some people may miss out on some important info here. The way I read this entire case is that Travis Henry will be starting the last PRE-SEASON game, not neccesarily the first regular season game.

And while we're at it, I also think this is what Kubiak had in mind when he mentioned Lundy as the starter: Starter in the last pre-season game, not the opener.

At least that's how I read into all the info we're being fed :)

Nope. The signing bonus is the "real" value of the contract as it is usually paid up front and then spread over the term of the contract. If the pkayer plays this year, or on IR, then his salary and signing bonus "proration" for this year all hit the cap.

(on cutting Domanick Davis) “The idea of cutting Domanick has not even played a factor. I don’t know where that came from. The decision is strictly if his knee is going to be healthy enough to play. If his knee is not healthy enough to play, if that is the decision that’s made about him, then he’s looking at an I.R. (injury reserve) season. If he is going to be able to make it back, then he is going to be on this football team. The other choice (cutting Davis) has never been a factor. Domanick Davis is a big part of this football team as I’ve said all along we’re going to do what’s right for him.”

According to a source close to the Titans, CBS SportsLine.com has learned that RB Travis Henry is expected to be the Tennessee's starting running back when they play vs. the Jets in Week 1 of the regular season. "Chris Brown is listed as the No. 1 running back in name only," the source said, citing Henry's dedication to the offseason workouts and overall ability as the main reasons why he'll start over Brown and rookie LenDale White. Henry started the Titans' third preseason game, a home loss to the Falcons.

i doubt this will go down, but in the case that it would happen I would say its a smart move. Smith and Taylor I don't think have enough talent to make an impact in a game, and I would say that they don't really provide much depth. I would love to have Davis, Lundy, Brown, and Morency as our 4 RBs, because I would say every running back, if pushed in the starting lineup, gave us a great chance in winning that football game, and any of those 4 backs could be one of those magical 1000 yard backs.

In the game against Denver. There was this particular tightend(#88) that Mario locked it up with a couple of times. Neither gaining ground, or loosing ground.

But when Babin went against that guy, he'd explode into him, back #88 up, then run around him.

Last two games, Babin has been spending alot of time around the other teams QB.

Texans | D. Davis wants to play – but it does not look good
Tue, 29 Aug 2006 19:58:45 -0700

The Associated Press reports Houston Texans RB Domanick Davis (knee) doesn't know when his injured left knee will be healthy enough for him to return to the field. He has been out for a month with a bone bruise that is causing soreness in his knee. He said it has been frustrating and surprising that the injury has kept him out this long. "It's getting to the point where it's just draining me," he said. "I'm tired of watching. I've been here and I've worked hard with everybody else and I can't be out there and help. It's just killing me watching." Texans head coach Gary Kubiak plans to meet with Davis, his agent and his doctors this week to discuss his injury. He wants to find out if Davis can play this season or if he needs to be placed on Injured Reserve. Davis will not be available for Houston's opener against Philadelphia and rookie RB Wali Lundy will start in his place.

It's my contention he is as healthy as Hines Ward & SteveSmith.

Well I have no idea how "healthy" those guys are, all I know is they both have hamstring issues which is a little different than missing cartilage in the knee.

IMO, they're just taking the preseason off and using the hammy issue as an excuse. Kind of like TO wanted to but ole Bill wouldn't have it.:spy:

There is no trade for Chris Brown rumored in Nashville. I've listened to both sports shows here and all they are talking about is the Kerry Collins signing. Chris Brown is the Week 1 starter for Tennessee.
not true................he has been shopped the last 24 hrs to 12 different teams...........Den is the leading candiate and the jets are also interested.

The doctors say the knee is fine...... no precautionary steps must be taken. The man is cleared to play football.

That's the way I see it.

Is this breaking news ? do you have a link ? I thought Kubes was supposed to sit down with the doctors today and discuss a prognosis ...

Then why is he not out there practicing and playing? Because the doctors have said the pain will always be there and he has to play through it, and as of yet he has not done that.

You guys know something? I love making fun of Jacksonville's "Fragile" Fred Taylor. He's a very good running back but that nickname is there for a reason and he's earned it. In Domanick Davis we have our own, somewhat less talented version of Fred. He can't stay healthy no matter what and more important than that we've all noted that DD isn't the same back when he's nicked up. Almost everyone in the NFL plays hurt a little bit at some point in the season but when Domanick Davis is feeling a bit "out of sorts" his production drops way off. That's a fact. How much is he going to produce for us this year if he's constantly thinking about that knee?

On Chris Brown he's the Titans version of Fred Taylor. The more I think about it why would we want another one? We have one guy like that already. What are we collecting them now?

I think we should IR Domanick Davis and forget about Chris Brown. Domanick's money is gone no matter what we do and maybe if he sits a year and gets used to the way the knee feels he'll be able to come to camp next year. If we can get him in some preseason games and convince some people that he's back on track we might get a late round pick for him or even if it doesn't work out we can cut him and reach an injury settlement next year. I say as much as I like Domanick we need to kill the distraction right now. Chris Browns money is something we don't need to make our problem. If he comes here and does well (and stays healthy) he's going to want to get paid shortly and just watch. He'll earn the contract and then get hurt again.

The Texans have thrown enough money away on players they don't need. They don't need Chris Brown.

Ok...I know that the mere mention of his name around these parts is enough to be deemed a heretic if not the outright ANTICHRIST...but this was my thinking all along and why I was in favor of drafting Reggie Bush.
:hides: :hides: :hides: :hides:
Sorry I brought his name up...but it seemed to fit with this post.

Blame it on Herv! lol



What I want to know from you is: If we had drafted Reggie do you think he would have stopped all that dancing an run between the tackles like our other backs? I don't think he could take the pounding our backs are going to have to take. Yes he would be great running the swing pass, and the sideline to sideline runs. But eventually everyone is going to know whats coming when he is in.

I don't think you give Kubes much credit...Reggie Bush is an offensive weapon...period...and a darn good one...

Veering off target now (and Luv Ya Blue, you've already read this) but I wanted Reggie too and this injury thing was a factor in that. Having said that I would not take him if I had this to do over again. I don't think he's the kind of back we're looking for in this offense. I think his talents (and they are there and they are considerable) would not be a good fit.

Instead I'd have traded down and targeted DeAngelo Williams. I'd have made that trade down even if I could only net an additional second rounder or even a 3 and a 4 combined. Look at the damage we did this draft after that first pick. If we could have gotten another 2 from someone it would have been worth it even if the value didn't balance out. Someone would have gotten a first overall cheaply and we would have gotten our RB along with more depth.
