This makes me happy.

Hopefully, he's not a big letdown like the last FB we signed trying to replace Leach.

Loves this signing. Glad the front office realized we need to protect Arian more and get his YPC up to where it was in 2010.

One more minor need filled, I like it! I hope he works out, and if he's half the blocker Leach was for us, he will be an improvement.

another good signing. Casey was a good player, but he was not the big strong blocker that Jones will be. Very exciting for our run game.....SB Bound

Very good signing. He's also enough of a good athlete to catch some passes out of the backfield for us too. The FO is adding some veteran guys who can play. Get younger and build the core in the draft. Fill needs with guys who have been in the league a while and want to win. I like this recipe.

Sweet! I was worried about having to fill the need in the draft or end up signing a Jameel Cook type...

Default Re: FA FB Greg Jones to visit Texans today

This is good news, so far every signing has sovled a starting position problem and at the same time helping the Texans prepare for draft without true needs so they can draft best player available.

Needs to me as of right now.
WR Starter/Back Up
RB Back Up
OL Back Up
NT Starter/Back Up
ILB Starter/Back Up
OLB Starter/Back Up
S Back Up
CB Back Up

The * by the player represents players I think could use an upgrade.

List below is starters on roster as of today.

QB SCHAUB
RB FOSTER
FB JONES
LT BROWN
LG SMITH
C MYERS
RG BROOKS
RT NEWTON *
WR JOHNSON
WR jEAN *
TE DANIELS

K BULLOCK
P LECHLER

SS MANNING
CB JOSEPTH
OLB MERCILUS
DE WATT
ILB CUSHING
NT MITCHELL *
ILB SHARPTON *
DE SMITH
OLB REED
CB JACKSON
FS REED

Another very important need is bench player upgrade Jamison Injury hurts DL depth. After starting line up there is no OLB & ILB depth.

So is anyone taking bets as to what round the Jags will reach for FB? I'd put money on the 4th.

Good to hear as on way for a hair cut this morning I thought 610 said his name then "terrible news". I flipped back to that channel but never said anything else. Thought maybe he failed a physical. I made sure my ear hair was reduced.
