Default 3rd hand Texans rumor

http://boards.houstontexans.com/showthread.php?t=5644

Quote:
Hey guys, I just called into Sirius NFL Radio and I spoke to pat Kirwan and another guy. This was at 1:20pm Sunday. I was calling to get their thoughts on the RB position and Cornerback and what we should do. They went on to say, "well RUMOR has it the Texans just aquired a Veteran Running back." They would not say who, or what team, because it wasn't official. I am still listening to my Siruis Radio waiting to hear. He said he was about to get back on his cell phone and confirm. Well see.......

Brian
If true it would have to be somebody who's been cut or they made a trade.

Any thoughts?

And, yes I know that there is a way better then zero chance that this is all BS.

Will be interesting to see if anything comes of this.

Veteran RB help, I hope that doesn't mean we are taking somebody's old castoffs ala Ahman Green.

Scout.com's Adam Caplan is reporting the Texans have interest in Michael Turner.

One thing to remember is that even though the free agency doesn't start until the 29th, verbal deals are being made now.

Quote:
UPDATE 12:50 PM EST

League sources indicate free agent RB Michael Turner could find interest from the Houston Texans. Houston got inconsistent production from Green in 2007 and he also missed 10 games due to knee problems. Green, who turned 31 recently, is a candidate to be released. He's due $12.9 million over the final three years of his contract.

Scouts believe Turner fits Houston's zone blocking scheme well which asks a back to make one cut and get down hill.

Derrick Ward, RFA, New York Giants

Ward filled in admirably for Brandon Jacobs this season. He was able to run for 80 yards or more during five different efforts this year, including a 154-yard effort against the Bears in week thirteen. Disappointingly, Ward was also knocked out for the season near the end of that game. He managed to find the endzone on three occasions during the season, and he was just shy of 800 total offensive yards. It’s hard to see Ward changing teams given his RFA status, but there could be a few teams looking to try and acquire him if the price isn’t too steep, and the Giants have the depth to let him go.

Predicted 2008 Team: Texans – He’ll be able to compete for a split of the carries.

Kirwin talked about it a couple of different times, but wouldn't give names or teams, except to say that it was a trade with Texans and a RB involved in the deal.

He indicated he was trying to track it down to confirm before floating the story.

I was listening intently to see if they actually came through with the goods, or if any new information had come out, but hadn't heard anything when I turned Sirius off.

Go Texans

Unless they get him cheap, I'd rather draft a RB. Let's use our available cap space to go get one or more of Justin Smith (DE), Bryant Johnson (WR), Landon Johnson (OLB), Demorrio Williams (OLB), Randall Gay (CB), or some other obscure player.

By the way, what about Deshaun Foster? After all, he's a free agent as we speak.

Wasn't there a rumor awhile back about the Texans possibly trading for Cadillac Williams?


Nevermind, I doubt it. Forgot how bad his knee injury was.
