Default Running Back Avalability Thread.

I am making my first post on this board a public service tool for all Texan fans and hopefully Texan management. Anytime a decent running back is released or becomes available please post his name here for discussion. The only decent running back that Houston has ever drafted was Dominick Davis. I was crushed this year when they did not take a running back with the first pick. Please save all the comments about the Gibbs cut block system. Bottom line is you have to have a back that can execute the plays. Fat out of shape has beens and never will bes are not going to get the Texans to the superbowl.

This thread is not a criticism of Duane Brown, Steve Slaton or Barber.

If the titans cut Quinton Ganther he would do.

Mewelbe Moore from Pittsburg if he gets cut is a possibility.

Default Re: Running Back Avalability Thread.

I was not crushed or upset when we didn't take Mendenhall because I felt it was more important to draft for our o-line. And I'd prefer to have multiple picks than Mendenhall or Felix Jones at this point.

The running backs that I know of that I think are available:

Shaun Alexander - Broken down and possibly heartless since he got his payday
Cedric Benson - Character issues and performance issues
Mike Anderson - Not sure he still has it but had some good years in this system and can play FB
Marcell Shipp
Najeh Davenport - Not a good option in my opinion

I'm not sure who else is available.

Did Tiki Barber go anywhere. His attitude is similar to Alexander.

What about the other guys we brought in 2 weeks ago?

Denzel's son John Washington, undrafted rookies Calvin Dawson and Darnell Terrell. If they haven't been signed maybe they will go that direction.

Didn't knew Kenny Irons was waived from the Bengals.

He a fast guy, ran 4.45 at combine, and was a 2nd round pick last year. But he has been frequently injured since coming into the NFL. On one hand, he's still young and might overcome those problems, and on the other hand, we have two injury prone RB already so we don't need another one.

In all honesty, I think we should just resign the ole' Dayne-train. As I said in the gameday thread, (aside from Dominick Davis/Williams) Dayne has been our best and most reliable RB. I would feel comfortable ridding our selves of Taylor and possibly even Green to make room for him.

He signed a decent deal to stay with them. I have heard from a good Raiders fan friend of mine Michael Bush has looked good and McFadden is McFadden. I have a feeling if we wanted a shot at either we'd be looking at a draft pick.

Kenny Irons is a guy whom I wouldn't mind bringing in Camp. I had no idea The Bengals cut him either.

No one is going to like this...I'd give up next years two for Micheal Bush. Course I'm the same guy who had Criss Williams and Clady ahead of Duane Brown. Last time we got into a deal with Weird Al we got taken to the wood shed. Anyone wanna defend the Buchanon deal ? Er, Phillip Buchanon. still looks wrong.

They cut him for a reason. He's coming off ACL surgery and was placed on the PUP before they dumped him.

ETA: He failed his physical in late July.

Bush is a beast. Raiders snagged him with the 1st pick in the 4th. He was out the entire season before because of a broken leg (i think 1st game?) otherwise he was a Heisman frontrunner and most likely a 1st rounder.

Havn't thought much about a trade though- sounds like he's fully recovered ? If so, would we find a better RB than him in the 2nd round this coming draft- maybe but probably not. Interesting thought 3toes.
