The person I was thinking about was Milford Brown and here is the information from the Texans Web Site. He was a starter in the Miami game and seemed to help us with the run game. I guess he's a back up to Pitts, but why can't he make the move to RG. They were very high on this young man at some point. What has changed? Is this another young talent we wasted a draft choice on and are not developing.
