Saw this on ESPN, thought it was interesting...

LenDale starting over in Houston?
Paul Kuharsky
LenDale would make sense for the Texans

"White worked well in tandem with Chris Johnson before Johnson took over in 2009. The Texans need a bigger back who can handle short-yardage and goal line situations to pair with Steve Slaton."

Well I know some people will be happy, he is worth a look for sure, but I wouldn't be comfortable giving him more than short-yardage and goal-line carries at this point. We still need a home run threat like 08 Slaton.

I know there is some Titan/Reggie Bust stink on Lendale White but he is effective moving the ball in the situations we have been poor in.

I'm hoping '10 Slaton bounces back to '08 Slaton form myself or a draft pick can help out but I for one would like to see White in a Texans uniform.... or perhaps one and a half Texans uniforms.

Would you trade our first round pick for DeAngelo Williams?

The Carolina Panthers have the luxury of two potentially dominant running backs on the roster, in spite of the fact that both battled injuries in 2009. So is it time to cash one of them in to try and move back into the first round of the draft?

In addition to the Julius Peppers saga, that's the top offseason question they must address, according to Bill Barnwell of the Football Outsiders. Barnwell thinks they might move DeAngelo Williams to the San Diego Chargers in exchange for the Chargers' top pick (No. 28 overall). In the same vein, it's possible the Panthers might give the Houston Texans a call, since they need a top RB, and could return a slightly higher pick (either No. 19 or 20, depending on a coin flip).

Nope. Running backs careers are way too short to justify trading a first round pick for one, especially one who is injury prone.

He had 7 TD's as a rookie and 15 TD's in his second year. He only had 2 last year due to CJ has a stoopid year.

I would sign him. I think he could very well be a Bettis reincarnate. (The Rams gave up on him early, big fat bastard of a back. Bettis didn't tear it up early in his career either.)

White is no way like Dane the one yard train. White actually hits the hole plus he brings a much needed attitude to this team.

But thats my opinion.

The Houston Texans star rookie running back Steve Slaton from a season ago seemed to lose his step in the 2009 season.

He went from a 1200 yard season to 400 yards in 2009. Even though there was apparently a problem with Slaton's arm this season, the Texans will probably look to pick up a running back to help their great air attack.

This is where LenDale White comes in.

Even though he isn't going to light up defenses, he can still pick up three to four yards on a first down carry. Also due to the Texans below average O-line White's powerful running style could come in handy.

The Texans have a great duo in Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson, Imagine if defenses had to prepare for a rushing attack too. He has the ability to shake of defenders and has the size to push for that extra yardage.

Living in Tennessee the past few years I had the chance or misfortune to catch alot of Titans games on TV and I can say that there were times White seemed to be lazy but most of the time he worked his butt off and was a solid back. I think he would be a great addition as a short yardage and 2nd half with the lead back and it's always good to have multiple backs. Look at the Titans for example, They haven't had 1 single great back since Eddie George and still managed to win alot of games with medium to little talent at QB.

I'd love to see White in Houston. My personal opinion though.

Ah geez, had Lendale come to Houston earlier we might have been able to see what Travis Johnson could have been since he wouldn't have been able to eat himself in to crappiness. (Of course he could have just sucked just as much 30 pounds lighter.)

I would love to sign White, he has been on FA wish list all season. He was a solid college RB who I predicted would be a very good Pro. Better than he more famous teammate, Heisman Trophy Winner Bush, well at least a better RB.

White has not had a lot of miles put on him, he should have a chip on his shoulder, and he can show the Titan twice a year they made a mistake.

He also appears to be a good team player, having shared the ball in college, and in the pros. In the games I saw CJ blowing up, i always saw White being one of the first ones on the sideline to chest bump him. Takes a real team player to be that way.

As for the question of trading a 1st round pick for DeAngelo Williams? I don't. Not even a third rounder. He seems to always be hurt.

El Tejano
02-19-2010, 11:13 PM
Would you trade our first round pick for DeAngelo Williams?

I think this would happen more because of the fact Kubiak wanted Williams. To think they were going to trade that 2nd round pick that landed us Demeco Ryans to get back in the first round to select Deangelo Williams. Chicago beat us out. Thank God.

It would be nice to end up with DW though after all that.

The way I see it is that if our offense could've sustained just a few more drives in our losses, we would've won those games. I recall seeing Lendale run one in on us on MNF and thinking if we had him on the last series we would've put the game away simply because our offense would've stayed on the field.

If I can get a veteran power running back in the 2nd round, I'll go for it. He's been in the league for four seasons but after this season it was really like 3 seasons. He's young, and it would be nice to have a guy in our backfield that wants to stick it to VY and The Titans.

Everyone wants a young back but for some reason don't want him?

No kiddin. Lendale White isn't injured all the time like Brown and he actually gets the tough yards. No real comparison. White also has fresh legs because he hasn't been over used so the Texans would get an experienced back with low mileage. I think it would be a great pick up for the Texans and it would allow the Texans more flexability in the draft. I still say they need to sign an experienced dt like Wolfork. Most dt's take years to develop and the Texans need help now. Maybe Dan Williams or Pryce could come in and help right away but there is no guarantee in the draft whether either would be there when we pick and whether either will make it in the NFL.

If you want a RB who might be availabel and cheap, look at the Raven and Willis McGahee? 12 tds in only 34 yds per game. That is red zone threat.

But he might be over priced like most guys drafted in the 1st are.

Pro Football Weekly reports the Minnesota Vikings appear to be a team that is prepared to move on without pending free-agent RB Chester Taylor. Although they appreciate Taylor quite a bit and would like to retain him, they know they probably can't afford to keep him at the salary and opportunity he's likely to get elsewhere.

second one down.

It is mentioned that White could potentially be had for a 4th round pick.

I agree with most people when they say no to giving up a 2nd for Lendale white. However, if we can get him for a 4th, it might be different. What do you guys think about it if he only costs a 4th?

I do not know how well he pass blocks, but he could be a good short yardage guy as long as the O line gets a slight upgrade so they can open up a hole big enough. That hole has to be 2x as big as the one for slaton.

Could be more of what he had around him then the fact that he's on empty. Obviously he's not 23 years old but what did Cleveland have on offense to stop teams from stacking the box ?

I didn't watch many Browns games but they said on NFL Live that Mangini pretty much overused him early in the season until he got hurt because he was all they had to rely on.

Not saying that I'd be dying to have the man at RB, but if it's short yardage then he'd be someone to look at.

I have never heard he can't.

Age is the only concern here, but for three years, he's taken very little damage while Adrian Peterson ran for miles and fumbled like Steve Slaton.

Chester would definitely be worth signing to split carries for the right price.

I'm not sure where I got this idea (ok, maybe I do), but I don't think we'll be trading 1st day draft picks for anybody, much less a RB. We'll likely draft one in the 2nd or 3rd and possibly bring in an UDFA.

Y'all that are wanting to trade a 1st rounder for a RB are being goofy, IMO of course. We've yet to find us one yet, but RB's that fit this system can be found in mid to later rounds. I just think, unless there's an "Adrian Peterson" type back, most RB's aren't first round worthy any more unless you can afford it. Meaning, if a team didn't have other glaring weaknesses that took priority, they could afford to spend a first on a RB.

Lendale does have talent but he doesn't have the passion to be great IMO, he just want the big payday and doesn't want to put in the work and I think that Texan fans would be very disappointed with the results that he would bring. I think if we had the chance to get Deangelo Williams for a 2nd round pick I would do that in a heart beat, but I think the best route for texans to get a stud running back will be to just draft one early in round 1 or the 2nd round.

Please do not take this as a personal affront because I understand you're not the first one to ever have that take, but the whole concept of not having "a lot of wear and tear" is just silly.

Age is wear and tear enough. The human body starts to degrade at about 25 years of age. At 30 years of age, a running back is pretty much used up. Of course there are exceptions, but they are just that---exceptions.

White was in great shape last year but had a 2000 yd rusher ahead of him.

White has always been an above avg RB. remember his 2008 80 yd run against the Chiefs. He weighed 280lbs that year and was plent fast enough.

White also played in a ZBS at USC.

Signing White is a gamble. At best he could be a 20 carry type RB. At worst he would be an upgrade as a short yardage RB who could split carries with a draft pick.

What people fail to realize is that when VY came back to QB, it changed the complexion of the Titans. They no longer had to line up in a short yardage formation. The dual threat of VY and CJ is what allowed them to keep the same players on the field. Especially with their ability to run option. This eliminated White from being able to play. It had nothing to do with him being lazy.

Now if you were telling me you wanted White to come in and be the starter, I'd say it is silly. But we are in need of a RB who can pound out yards for us in the 4th quarter to keep our offense on the field. That's what we need. White can do that.

I feel the same way. I just think that the pursuit of Lendale White is going to depend on where they tender him and what kind of picks would have to be given up. There's probably a better chance of us just using the draft to find that guy to get us those yards.

Now if you were telling me you wanted White to come in and be the starter, I'd say it is silly. But we are in need of a RB who can pound out yards for us in the 4th quarter to keep our offense on the field. That's what we need. White can do that.

I like White as a short yardage 15/20 carry a game guy. With 10 of those carries coming in the 4th qtr.

You should check out my pre combine/FA mock that I'm going to do today.

I've got the Texans taking R.Mathews in the 2nd rd. White would be a great compliment to Mathews. He could help teach Mathews how to pass pro and be a veteran influence.

White doesn't have many miles on him and is only 26 yrs old.

II just think that the pursuit of Lendale White is going to depend on where they tender him and what kind of picks would have to be given up.

They can give him the lowest tender and get a 2nd because that's where he was drafted so there's your floor.

Yeah...it's pretty steep to give that draft pick and worry about paying him something that Tennessee won't match. Ryan Matthews or Gerhart or any number of RB's in the draft can probably fill our needs at a lesser cost.

I wouldn't give up a 2 for him. I compared him to a potential Bettis earlier in the thread. My luck he would be another Stacy Mack.

Nah pass on White...there are just to many BBQ joints in Houston...he will swell up again and be fatter than all the Olineman.

I say sign him and if he gets above 290 or so put him at Center!!!!!

Would you trade our first round pick for DeAngelo Williams?

Yes I would...no I wouldn't....lol. I like Deangelo a lot but we need a DT more than a RB at this point

I think he would make a good addition to this team. He definately has fresh legs. We just need someone to actually block for him. It would be our 3rd ex-titan rb.

Fo git about it. I think they are all double agents...they come to houston and still are on the Bud Adams payroll to come here and fumble on the goaline, throw ints killing comebacks etc..lol. I wish they would let me pick the goal line power back....and I can get him in the sixth or seventh round. We don't need anymore fat RBs.

After reading all the responses, here is my .02. I think White makes alot of sense for the texans. They can sign him with a split level contract and include workout bonuses,weight clauses,and production money all tied in. He's still a young back without a lot of carries that is never tackled by the first man. Will he break off long runs? Not many, but he falls forward all the time, has great hands, and blocks well. He can also be used in a backfield combination with others. The texans also need to add to their inside triangle if they want to be a good running team. White has good burst and balance also. For a 4th rd pick, he's worth it.

We already had a back that always fell forward.

I would only sign him if the Texans didn't have to give up a draft pick. No way we give up a 2nd for him.

I'm coming over to the Gerhart side. I'm right at the line looking for a reason to crossover. I still think you have to consider LaGarrett Blount in this list for a power back.

Blount was considered early round talent until he punched some dork for talking smack. I think he's actually remorseful for his actions though and have absolutely nothing against drafting him. I think he'll probably go in the fourth or so and if he's there when we pick and we haven't already gotten a RB he's definitely worth a grab.

(I'm still thinking that we should come out of the draft with a couple of RB's and now a couple of CB's)

I'm praying to God that we at least sit down and talk with Blount. If we do, I'm hoping Blount says something to the effect of how he doesn't have any other issues prior and hasn't had any issues after, that he made a mistake on a big stage but that he also did it at a time where every man his age makes dumb mistakes on a big stage and that he used his time to learn from it which is what college is about alot of times outside the books as well as in them.

If he can do that, he's got a chance with us.

Packers | Will not tender offer to Wynn
Comment (0)
Fri, 26 Feb 2010 09:17:20 -0800

Tom Pelissero, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, reports the Green Bay Packers have informed the representatives for restricted free-agent RB DeShawn Wynn that they will not be tendering an offer to Wynn. The Packers are still interested in re-signing him at a reduced price, according to a source.

Don't know much about him. I remember him having a knee injury. Guys got all the intangibles of what WE are looking for though so I thought I'd add his name in the fire. May come cheap, and since we aren't placing the offense around him, may be helpful. What say yall?

Stay as far away from this guy as possible. I'm a huge USC fan but this guy is lazy and it will show the minute he signs his next contract. He was in great shape this year because it was a contract year for him. LW wouldn't even train for the combine when coming out and that cost him millions. No way Texans should try to sign him.

Yeah, the more I see LaGarrett Blount on film the more I see a better Lendale White.
