FYI, Wade Smith has let the Texans know that he wants to return this season and eventually retire as a Texan. Meanwhile, it should not be any surprise that earlier this year, he underwent another "little procedure" on his bone bruised knee........and his other knee. Let's hurry up and sign him up before he changes his mind.

Nope and I wouldn't have wanted to pay that much guaranteed money either.

Good. Read he is a liability in pass coverage. Hopefully BOB will do to him what the Pats did to our ILB's in pass coverage.

From PFT>Ben Tate...I am the greatest.

Quote:
After four years in Houston, Tate plans to become one of the top running backs in the league.

I think I can bring you an elite running back, Tate told Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston. Ive learned a lot being behind Arian [Foster]. Definitely, when Im healthy I think Im an elite running back in this league, and I feel like I can show my abilities and my numbers and my play will speak for itself, and guys will be able to see that I am a guy who is a top-five running back in this league, which I believe once I get out there and get to show that on a consistent basis.

Tate ranks as the best available running back on lists like this one, and this one, and oh lets see this one. He values the recognition.

It lets me know that my hard work hasnt gone unnoticed, Tate said. Even with my limited, I guess you would say my limited amount of snaps and my limited amount of being able to be out there and play, that my talent is still recognized. Its very much appreciated.

Tate says he has come to terms with the fact that hell have to leave
Houston.

I have, I have, Tate said. Im very grateful for the Texans selecting me and giving me an opportunity coming out of college. Without a doubt Im very grateful for that. I just see it as a chapter closing in my life and opening a new chapter.

The old chapter consisted of 1,992 yards in three seasons with the team, after breaking an ankle in the preseason opener of his rookie season. In 2011, he gained 942 yards, averaging 5.4 yards per carry.

Its unclear whether his potential production will result in a major payday. In recent years, veteran tailbacks receive roughly $3 million to $4 million per year. Few running backs get much more than that, because teams tend to skew younger at the tailback position. When the 2014 season starts, Tate will be 26.

Default Re: Potential Free Agents

With free agent signings starting next week, the Texans supposedly are in the market for a veteran QB. As of today, there seems to be only two that I think we should consider:

Kellen Clemens, 31, St Louis, 6'-2"/224 lbs (78.8 QB rating, 8 TD's, 7 INT's);
Matt Flynn, 29, Green Bay, 6'-2"/230 lbs (85.7 QB rating, 8 TD's, 5 INT's)

(edit) Flynn is a Texas boy from Tyler. Might want to come back closer to home.

I have Flynn listed as an UFA, on what I thought was a current list. But now I see he signed with GB last November. What is his current status?

Geoff Shwartz plz. Anthony Collins would be nice.

Plus there is a plethora of very good talent at running back available due to injury, team situation, and whatever else. Personally I want MJD, but theres also McFadden, Sproles, and Moreno, Andre Brown is another one, and I'd settle for Gerhart too.

Have to get stronger down the middle. HAVE to. #Texans

They need a big-time hammer in the middle on 1st/2nd down. Have to think they take a long look at Brandon Spikes. #Texans

Yes to Swartz. I think we really need a solid backup. I'm worried not only about Fosters physical health but his mental health as well. He's never struck me as a serious off season hard worker anyway. With all that is going on in his personal life I can't imagine him being really ready for the grind of the season.

P.S. I think you meant Donald Brown of the colts right?
