Default No Retread Running Backs for Texans per John McClain

Thank God! Perhaps we'll stop seeing every 30 year old running back's name associated with the Texans now.

I have inside sources close to the Texans FO that the Texans are INDEED interested in Chester Taylor and is going to pursuit him once FA starts tonight.

Posted by: dan
This dan fellow is saying he has sources saying they ARE going to pursue Chester Taylor. And of course McClain is saying the opposite.

Now it comes down to this, should we believe this unknown guy who claims to have sources within the Texans FO or should we believe beat writer, McClain?

My conclusion: They're both full of **** and don't have an effin' idea of what's going on within the Texans FO, nor what's Rick Smith gonna do in the FA.

There was another guy on the ht.com boards saying they also had interest in LT when McClain said they didnt.

I suppose, technically, the guys who claim to have inside knowledge and McClain are all correct.

The Texans may want to offer Chester Taylor a contract, but it won't be nearly what he wants.

McClain is not the guy to trust on these things. He puts out what the FO wants him to put out.

Personally, I think that LT still has a lot left in the tank and would be great for our system. It'd be foolish to base these decisions on their experience with Ahman Green.

So we will have a 1st rd rb. Ryan matthews is fine with me so long as they address cb in FA.

Personally, i would love the texans to get a FA running back just for the sheer fact we can rub in John's face that was wrong.

It might be wise for us to bring in a veteran RB at least. If we draft one our RB corps will consist of a bunch of babies who desperately need the mentorship of a vet. It might be a while, but I think we'll eventually bring in a vet. It might not be LT, TJ, CT, etc., but I think we get somebody.

Id be lying if I said I wasnt interested in Chester Taylor. That guy has been good for a while but has never started so the mileage is low.

I think Texans will watch this first surge of free agency and then start bringing in players next week who can compete for jobs or back up.

From his rolling commentary/Twitter feed.

Is this ust me, but isn't every player that a team signs someone who could compete for jobs or back-up?

you would think so. its a pretty glaring weakness and there is a slew of guys that could come in and have a good shot at improving our team. i'm not sure the price would be that prohibitive either...it just may take some patience for the candidates to test the water and come back to us and accept possibly a more Texans-friendly deal than they originally asked for.

we might end up with a Willie Parker on a one year deal with possibly a team option in 2011 (the dead season). i don't think they are going to go after the top tier guys (taylor, jones, tomlinson). the team is operating as if there is a cap so don't expect much if anything at any position. after all, they just signed Matt Turk. Championship time.

Other than the normal free-spending teams, most of the league is acting as if there's still a cap. Do research, read about the league and you'll find the Texans are NOT the "cheap" team.

And yes, I do expect us to bring in a vet RB too. It'll be for a decent price too and rightfully so

I think it is exactly the opposite and since Capers/Casserly's departure McClain has been virtually locked out by the Texans. Very rarely anymore do you see or hear a line from him nowadays that "sources with the team told me" or anything similar and you heard that a lot in the Capers/Casserly era. You can tell in the interviews that Kubiak and Smith don't like McClain.

Just saw that the Raiders released Justin Fargas. Anyone for giving him a chance? I'm not real familiar with him, but he doesn't have a lot of miles on him.
