I could easily see Rivers in the first and Godfrey in the 3rd. I am really pulling for the kid, since he has a Texan logo tattooed on his hand.

Re-arrange to Ahman, Chris, Darius and Chris (Taylor). That way you can refer to AC/DC and then actually have something to talk about.

I do like a healthy Brown. I hope that if this deal goes, through, there are heavy incentives penned into the contract which would occur only if he appears on the field proper...........not the sidelines.

I agree with this. I've always liked Chris Brown. I liked him coming out of school, and was kind of hoping we would draft him.

However, I'm very worried about his durability. I just don't know why he keeps getting injured. Do y'all think it is his upright running style, bad luck, karma, what? In other words is there something that either he or the team could do to cut his risk of injury again?

I do hope we sign him though. Adding talent is never a bad thing in general. Competition breeds success, and with Green, Brown, Taylor, Walker et al, we have some good potential. None of these guys alone will likely be a top 10 guy, but I see a lot of substitution to keep these guys fresh, and hopefully that will help keep them on the field. We shall see.

Radio 610 just announced that it is being reported by the NFL Network that the Texans have closed the deal with Chris Brown.

Chris Brown can easily beat any RB on our roster for the starting job ...... if he's healthy. Please let this be an incentive-laden deal.

You said it all. I like his ability. I like his skill. I just don't like running upright and how he gets injured. So incentives and lower money would be a key. This makes someone expendable.

I agree. Hopefully the change of scenery and an incentive-laden contract will keep him healthy. Although the Texans track record with injuries would lead you to believe the opposite.

Probably true. Quite an indictment on the Texan RB corps.

Brown had some of his biggest games against Indy & Jax. So he's got that going for him.

In his only start this season he had 19 carries for 175 yards in the season opener AGAINST THE JAGS. Not sure why they didn't start him the rest of the season.

Finished the season playing 12 games with 102 carries, 462 yards, and 5 tds. 4.5 yard avg.

I also love a healthy Chris Brown. I have memories of him running for six touchdowns against Nebraska in 2001. Then he also ran over the Longhorns in the Big XII Championship that same year. Granted he hasn't been able to stay healthy, but I have enjoyed watching him since then.

With or without the C. Brown signing, I don't believe we were going to draft a 1st round RB anyway - especially if the reports of Stewart's Foot/Toe injury are accurate.

I am not a Chris Brown fan but if he does sign with us I will find a way to fit my fat butt on the bandwagon.

I can see that one of the big IF questions next season will be...

"If Ahman Green and Chris Brown stay healthy we will have a top 10 running game."

I like the idea of a healthy Green and Brown but I can't see both of them staying healthy a whole season.
