Admittedly he's not better than the 3 we have on the roster but why work out RB's unless Ward is becoming a liability. Obi was a good fit for the PS.

Funny how 2 months ago we thought we had a huge glut at RB. How quickly things change in the NFL.

If the Texans needed RBs, why didn't they just keep Slaton or Obi?

Slaton has no vision and since his surgery, can't find the holes and is afraid of fumbling.

Ogbonnaya simply wasn't very good. A lot of people got excited about him because of that first preseason game but he did not work very well in this offense.

I know it's strange to see a GM actually doing his job around here. But we should always be looking to upgrade the roster.... practice squad included.


Hopefully we'll get used to it.

Totally agree. Didn't understand why he got cut other than to make room for WR's or something. I thought he earned his spot as our last string RB.

Default Re: Texans busy today looking at RBs, with 7 visiting Houston Today

I think this is more of the emergency list update AND possibly adding someone to our PS. OBGYN, was average AT BEST. With AF and Tate showing off their skills and with Ward being a solid veteran option, RB is still not a need. Its always nice to have a list ready in case one goes down though.
