I think it's just the signing of his RFA tender.

Moats the Mediocre Man. This signing does nothing for me.

If Moats put on 10-15 pounds the way he runs, his professional career could turn out nicely.

Best case scenario for the Texans is he gets beaten out in training camp.

If he is on the roster come regular season, I think things haven't gone as planned.

You're correct: Chronicle

Quote:
Running back Ryan Moats made sure he'll be part of the competition in the Texans' crowded backfield by signing his tender on Wednesday.


Moats, a fifth-year restricted free agent, will earn a one-year contract of $1.226 million if he makes the team.


Moats, 27, Steve Slaton, Arian Foster and Jeremiah Johnson are running backs who are expected to be joined in the backfield by a high draft choice.


Moats, a third-round pick by Philadelphia in 2005, came to the Texans during the 2008 season.

The dude is very small--he's about my height. He's extremely muscled up, with super long arms for his size. He has no room to put on more weight.

Super nice guy.

If Slaton can return to his rookie year form, we get a nice back in the draft and Foster can continue what he did in the last couple of games last year, we'll have a nice set of RBs.

And just think if Jeremiah Johnson comes in healthy and hungry.

We could have a really nice set of RBs. And we NEED a really nice set of RBs.

We can get a good RB in the first 3 rounds, but I think Foster has a better chance of doing good than Slaton. I just don't trust Slaton's neck injury to heal. I sure do hope I'm wrong about that, because Slayton in good from and a nice new RB we could actually run the ball for a change.

That, to me, is the biggest "if."

I'd love it if he did come back.... but that's a scary injury.

Oh, when are we re-signing Chris Brown? [/sarcasm]

I like Moats. I think he's a fine substitute for Slaton, if Steve can't play.

& by substitute, I mean as a third down back.

I don't see the point of having SS & Moats on the team, provided we do take a RB high in the draft.

Foster is the guy. Look at the last 3 games. We actually had a decent running game and those numbers are perfect for our offense. He's a pile mover and great for the redzone. No need to use him much anywhere else besides the RZ and killing the clock. WE are a passing team and we have to accept that. Colts and Chargers were both successful with crappy rushing attacks. Our O-linemen are great pass protectors, WRs are one of the best in the league, and we got a top 5 QB! Thats a foundation of a passing attack and we should just build on that.. Now I'm all for drafting a RB but becoming a dominant rushing team is just not what we do. We won't become the next Jets or the Colts would've done tht years ago.

But becoming a dominant rushing team is Kubiak's goal. Being a dominant running attack is what his offense is built on.

He's been creative enough to make the offense work in a pass-first mode, but that's not what he wants this team to do at all. He only wants Matt dropping back 20-25 times a game (as opposed to 36 attempts a game last year). And if we had a dominant rushing attack combined with Matt's play action skillz, he'd be lighting some people up in those 20-25 attempts.
