Default Running Backs The Texans Should Look Out For

I do not know if this is the correct area. But, are there good RB's who may not make the final roster on another team to take the place of Ben Tate?

If they are good RB's, I doubt they don't make the team.

A team might be loaded leaving some one on the bubble though.

Gary, what team out there is loaded at running back to the point where they'll be cutting a good one?

I'm not saying that it's not going to happen, but if there are any teams out there that fit that desription they shouldn't be hard to come up with. I can't think of any off the top of my head though.

Good, might just be too strong. Allow me to back up this train but an RB who might not make the team but is better than Chris or JJ.

Honestly, I liked how those two looked last night...

I just don't think we're going to bring in a RB that is cut that will play better in our system than Henry and Johnson...

I can't think of a RB that might be cut that I'd bring in, but maybe someone else can...

If our staff brings in more RB's you can pretty much guarantee that it's not going to be any name that we've ever heard of before, and it'll most likely be a body to take snaps until the final cuts come around.

It has happend in the past though. I was not overly impressed with Henry last night but JJ looked decent at least.

Here?

I'm drawing a blank...

What RB's have we brought in that were cut from other teams but did well in our system?

The only one I can think of that remotely fits that description is Ryan Moats...

Carolina, Washington, Dallas & Oakland have some very good backs so we might have to trade for one but I don't trust steve slaton or arian foster. Steve Slaton is still fumbling the ball.

Default Re: Running Backs The Texans Should Look Out For

I'm a Jeremiah Johnson fan and I was excited when the Texans signed him and Foster last year. Those were just insane steals in my opinion and will pay off, actually are paying off big time. Foster is ideal for what we do and Johnson has a good chance I think of turning out to be a better fit than Steve Slaton for the third down roll. They're almost interchangeable unless you need a quick fumble in which case you probably want to go with the established leader in that category.

Seriously though I think we're good at RB "at this moment". If we lose another one though I hope we start beating the bushes for another back.

Maybe Peyton Hillis doesn't work out in Cleveland and we get lucky?

I was impressed with Johnson last night, albeit against 3rd and 4th stringers.
