Good to hear. Bell's a stud on special teams, good to have Norris back blocking for Davis.

*Still hoping Simmons gets signed as well*

Solid. Norris is a stud blocker and Bell is a solid contributor on special teams.

Norris IMO is becoming one of the better lead blocking FB's. He flat out mauls people at times. Actually saw him getting some credit the other day (don't have the article now) mentioning him as one of the top 5 or 10 (can't remember but thought it was 5) blocking FB's in the league.

Its official, from the main board:

Quote:
HOUSTON Ė The Houston Texans have agreed to contracts with CB Jason Bell and FB Moran Norris, it was announced today.
Norris (6-1, 250) played in 12 games, starting four. He has started 13 games over the past two seasons and has been the primary lead blocker for the Texans running game that has rushed for an average of 110.4 yards per game. In 2004, the Texans running game produced a 125.8 yard average in games he was in the lineup. Norris caught four passes for 13 yards and recorded his first NFL carry for no yards.

Norris, a native Houstonian, was apart of a Texans running game that produced 103 rushing first downs, which ranked 10th in the NFL. The Texans running game produced 46 runs of 10 yards or better. Norris was originally claimed off waivers from the New Orleans Saints (9/18/02). The former Kansas Jayhawk played at Madison High School in Houston.

Bell (6-0, 186), a fifth-year defensive back out of U.C.L.A., has become a special teams standout since the Texans claimed him off waivers from Dallas prior to the teamís inaugural season. He led the Texans in special teams tackles in 2002, the season his teammates selected him as the teamís first winner of the Ed Block Courage Award. Bell was chosen for the award because he broke his arm and returned to action after only missing three games. Bellís 2004 season was also cut short when he broke his foreman in the second quarter at Indianapolis (11/14/04).

Over the last three seasons (35 games) Bell has accumulated 35 special teams tackles. Prior to joining the Texans, Bell registered 21 special teams tackles for Dallas as an undrafted rookie. He played quarterback, wide receiver and defensive back at Millikan High School in Long Beach, Calif

great signings for the texans. I'm especially glad about resigning Moran Norris. I noticed that DD had a lot more good games when Norris was blocking for him rather than Baxter.

I think that it is a great sign, both players contribute a lot. Norris is starting to become a very good lead blocker and I look forward to him playing with us a long time.

I was worried we wouldn't resign Norris. This makes me very happy.

It's good to see they'll be back in the fold next season...

Hopefully we get Simmons and McCree back as well...
