Texans sign free agent running back Andre
Brown to a one-year deal worth 645, 000.

Good deal I guess.

I wouldn't pencil him in as Foster's back up though. Going to have to earn it.

And really, Foster is going to have to show up if he wants to play as much as he thinks he deserves to. I think OB is going to be more willing to spread the load if other guys prove capable.

Love the signing. Little investment. Could be a good back up for the short term.

O'Brien is on the record as wanting three different types of RB.
A three down back, a 1st and 2nd down type back, and a dedicated 3rd down back.
Foster is the three down back.
Would Brown fit in as the 1st and 2nd down guy?

Nice bargain bin shopping right there. Now bring in some UDFAs to compete and our RBs should be in shape for 2014.

6' 230#, I see him as more of a 1st-2nd down back.

Name a RB, that gets significant carries, that hasn't had a major injury in their career. I can only think of one, and that's Chris Johnson, because he avoids taking big hits. He's not a guy that fights for yards.

I like the signing. I want multiple, quality backs, rather than just one really good one and hope he survives the season.

With foster coming back from a back injury, I would rather pay cj 4m per yr than risk foster going down and brown being injury prone.

And don't forget about that highly rated RB we'll take in the 3rd round this coming draft that breaks his ankle in pre-season.

We need a depth at RB position. Good signing with min investment is always welcoming sight.

Great pickup & allows us to go 3rd day for a pick for RB, I'm mocking Tyler Gafney in 5th/

That would be a good pick. Another late rounder I like is LaDarius Perkins of Mississippi State. He could really help in the passing and return game.

I think Perkins may be the type of 3rd down RB that BOB is looking for.
