Mike Bell as a 4th, 5th, or 6th option at HB? How on earth could anyone have a problem with that? Some fans have to complain about something, I guess.

Right now, they're looking for cheap legs. Cedric Benson ain't cheap legs.
I didn't clarify enough. My bad. I knew he's on a roster now, so I was making that comment as in "Why didn't we go after Jones?"

Why were we not at his workout? Apparently there were 4 teams there.

I guess it was a $ thing. For both those guys.

It's just getting funny, that's all.

Some people subscribe to netflix and exchange unlimited movies at their leisure. The Texans do the same thing with RBs.

It's beginning to be a running joke (buh-duh-bump! Hey, that's two jokes in one). Yay for me!

Seems that chron.com had it wrong, it was Mitchell. The UDFA from last year that was on the PC.

I don't think Chris Brown has anything to worry about. If you're hurt, you're hurt. this is training camp he's missing, not games. Kubiak said he knows Chris can contribute to this team, he just needs to be healthy. I'd hate myself if I cut Brown because he missed some time in training camp and he goes on to rush for 1000 yards for the Titans or something.

Texacutioner, please lay off the bold letters. It makes it seem like you are yelling and ranting, which is obnoxious. Mike Bell was available, unlike the backs you mentioned. He is simply coming to compete for a spot on the team. If he does, that's great. If he doesn't, oh well.

Priest Holmes was bounced around the league much like Bell was, that's the comparison. "OMG don't compare them!" Well why not? They both went through getting bounced around and look how Priest turned out. I bet someone said the same thing you're saying about Priest when he joined the Chiefs.

Default Re: Mike Bell is now a Texan

simply stated Bell is a system RB that fits here, not to mention Gibbs needs bodies to burn reps with

he was able to elevate his game to the next level (Arizona to the NFL/Broncos) still young without much wear & tear but I feel he is another underachiver who shys away from contact & hard work ala Chris Brown, although I welcome him to prove me wrong & make this team. low cost med reward signing

I haven't seen the terms of Bell's contract disclosed as of yet. I imagine we got him on the cheap. I say give the guy a shot. Maybe being cut this time has gotten his attention and he'll come in and work his tail off. TC has a way of sorting these things out. Kubes & Co. will keep the best talent when all is said and done. C. Brown needs to get and stay healthy. I believe he can be productive if he does.

I like the signing of Mike Bell. He's still young, & has a lot left. I think he just had a bad year. I don't agree with going after Kenton Keith. IMO if a team is looking for a player who may be less known, but will pleasantly surprise; they should be scouting the CFL (or AFL) now. Didn't the Colts get Keith last year? Wouldn't the Texans scouts have seen him, too? I don't know if he'll be released with his arrest & all, but going after him sends me 2 messages:

1- The Colts scouts beat the Texans scouts to the punch

2- Now we would want a guy they don't want anymore

I'll stick with Mike Bell.

From what I remember of Keith when he was up here in Canada, he wasn't exactly a high-character guy, either.

Kevin Jones is already injured. We don't need that either.

EDIT! Forgot to mention:

Welcome to the Texans, Mike Bell. Good luck to you!
