That'd be DD, Morency, Lundy, Smith, Wells, maybe D. Rhodes as an UDFA plus Cook. That's alot of guys in the backfeild.

if we sign Smith that basicly gives us 4 backs (which is about what we need)

DD, Morency, Lundy, Smith.

I could live with that.

Well.. he hasnt be re-signed and we are currently signing UDFA RBs.. that is a pretty big indication that Wells isnt high on our list IMO.

Id really like to bring him back, hopefully we still will.

I'm puzzled by it too. I thought I saw a thread on the board that said he was off the roster.

Actually listening to Casserly this morning on 610 he hinted at the possibility possbility of signing another RB soon and the way he went about stating it made me curious about just who they were considering because it didn't sound like he was talking about adding a scrub RB at least from the tone of his conversation. If this is true and not just another rumor it makes sense. But as all things when it comes to rumors I am just going to take this with a grain of salt until otherwise.

They already have something like $100 million -- or will have -- tied up in the RB position with Bush, McAllister and Bennett there.

Wells is a free agent. He became one on or about March 3. He's not on anyone's roster.

Antowain has very little left in the tank. He'd be an emergency backup and occaisional goal line/short yardage guy.

Weird... no team listed on the NFL's site but he is still listed on the Texans site. And the Texans site is usually fairly accurate in regards to the roster.

I've heard Kubiak wants depth at every position before June 1st so they will all compete, so I'm not surprised.

Kubiak's got a formation he calls antpile. it's basically the normal five man o-line but instead of a qb taking the snap, it's a running back who does so. there are five other running backs lined up. two behind him, and the rest on the LOS. it's a pretty effective setup. no passing. pure running.
