Default Chris Polk - RB signed

Texans sign RB Chris Polk, formally of the Philadelphia Eagles. Basic 1 year Texan deal, $660k with max $100k in per game bonus. I'll get the numbers up on the site later this evening.

FWIW: Philly put a 2nd round tender on the RFA, but when no other teams put in an offer, Philly pulled the offer sheet. That made Polk go from RFA to UFA immediately. Texans pounced on the opportunity. Polk also has KR experience.

Quote:
Following Thursday night's third preseason game, coach Chip Kelly noted that Chris Polk (hamstring) better be looking over his shoulder.
Polk hasn't played at all this preseason with a slightly torn hamstring. While he's been out, UDFAs Matthew Tucker and Henry Josey have been running the ball well behind LeSean McCoy. The Eagles also traded for Kelly favorite Kenjon Barner. Polk's roster spot is in danger after he opened training camp as the heavy favorite for No. 2 ball-carrying duties behind McCoy.

From April 2014:

Quote:
According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, the offseason shoulder surgery Chris Polk underwent was "major."
The Eagles never revealed the exact nature of the shoulder injury that Polk sustained in Week 8. All we know is he began to siphon snaps from Bryce Brown down the stretch and then went under the knife following the Wild Card loss to the Saints. It's possible Polk had surgery to prevent the shoulder from popping out of place going forward. Regardless, he should be healthy enough to battle Brown for a backup job in camp -- assuming Brown is still on the team.

Chris Polk - RB - Eagles
The Philadelphia Inquirer speculates restricted free agent Chris Polk could be seeking a trade.
Polk has not signed his $1.54 million RFA tender yet and was not present as the Eagles opened their offseason program Monday. It's understandable he wants a trade as the Eagles have DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles ahead of him. Perhaps Chip Kelly could pull some magic out of a hat and get a seventh-round pick for Polk.

Somebody is going to get a quality running back in Chris Polk

My least favorite transaction the Philadelphia Eagles made this offseason was signing DeMarco Murray to a huge, long-term contract. Obviously, Murray is a good playeróhe did lead the NFL in rushing last seasonóIím simply philosophically opposed to investing large sums of money into 27-year-old running backs, especially when they were ridden hard and have durability issues to begin with.

But now thereís another (albeit, lesser) reason to take issue with the move. As a result of the Murray and Ryan Mathews additions, and with Darren Sproles already on the roster, Chris Polk apparently was none too pleased about his opportunities in Philadelphia, and who could blame him? So Polk didnít jump at the chance to sign his one-year tender as a restricted free agent, and the Eagles ultimately rescinded the offer on Friday, which means he can go wherever he wants.

Is losing Polk a big deal in the grand scheme of things? Probably not. He was never more than a third-string running back here, and the Eagles are loaded at the position. Clearly, he wasnít going to see much action in 2015, then he wouldíve departed as an unrestricted free agent the following offseason anyway.

Yet itís a shame Chip Kelly didnít recognize Polkís value was greater than numbers or status suggest. At 25 years old and $1.542 million, he was a younger, cheaper alternative to the Murrays and Mathews and Sproles of the world, at an area where teams donít necessarily need three stars to achieve success. In fact, even the best ball-carriers are reliant to an extent on the offensive line to pave the way, which is why itís questionable to allocate so much salary-cap space into the backfield in the first place.

Plus, Polk looked good. Granted, small sample size here, but he carried 57 times for 270 yardsóa 4.7 averageóand seven touchdowns over the past two seasons. The guy has a nose for the end zone, and a no-nonsense, north-south, look-for-contact running style that will serve him well in any offense. He even contributes on special teams.

Polk has some durability issues of his own, and itís not like another club is going to install him as its workhorse back, but he can play. Heíll just be doing it elsewhere, despite the fact the Eagles couldíve had him by doing little more than handing him a contract to sign.

Itís not as if Polk is some irreplaceable commodity, either. If the Eagles even carry four running backs on the 53-man roster, Matthew Tucker spent the past two seasons with the organization and could fill Polkís spot on special teams and meager role in Phillyís offense. It just doesnít make a whole lot of sense to let a talented player walk away when you own his rights.

Sure, Murray, Mathews and Sproles are established, superior backs, so the Eagles donít need Polk. Who even cares about some benchwarmer, right?

Polkís departure isnít going to cost Philly a Super Bowl, it likely wonít even cost the Eagles any wins. However, it seems unnecessary. Clearly, Kelly values running backs differently from the rest of the league, and weíll find out if his expensive fleet of Pro Bowl ball-carriers can push the Birds back to the playoffs soon enough. But somewhere in the NFL in 2015, another team could be experiencing just as much or more success with Polk on the roster, for far less money and commitment.

Polk had significant hamstring problems throughout all of last season. It was the reason for him missing some games and a significant factor in the Eagles' notable limiting of his RB role. Hopefully this problem does not follow him to the Texans.

Mathews and Murray can't stay healthy. They better draft a RB b/c Sproles is not a feature back.

I went back & watched some of his college highlights. He looked alight. Good size, good speed (doesn't look like 4.4 speed), good vision. I'd liked to have seen more passes caught out of the backfield, since I'm hoping we'll see more of that in OB's offense.

Hopefully his body has held up to the grind.

As a high frequency full contact type of running back, his shoulder is much more worrisome than what appears on the surface. In 2008 as a Freshman in college, he sustained a right labrum shoulder injury that required season ending surgery. In 2009, he suffered the same injury to the same shoulder, but made the decision to tough it through with the aid a heavy brace because he did not want to miss back to back seasons. Following that season, he proceeded with his 2nd shoulder surgery. There were reports before the 2012 Draft that several examining team doctors labeled Polk's right shoulder as "chronic" and "degenerative." Dr. James Andrew, though was asked to examine him and said that his shoulder was just fine. Fast forward 1 year later........he again injures his right shoulder labrum shoulder that required surgery January of last year. BTW, each of his shoulder injuries leading to surgery were not as a result of a fall to the ground, but as a result of direct shoulder to body contact during his runs or blocks.

Sounds like he needs to change his running style to not running over tacklers.

Do you have any info on Virginia safety Anthony Harris who played all 2014 in a harness with a shoulder injury? He had surgery after season and expected back early summer.

Note that Polk's deal does not have any GTD money. Not a lock for the roster, but very good competition.

He actually suffered a right labrum tear (just like Polk) late in 2013 and played through the rest of that year and the entire 2014 season. Unrestricted return to play usually requires ~5-6 months. In college, he spent a lot of time in the box.......not a good place to live once you've had such an injury.

thanks, I thought injury was same as Polk. I want to remove RB Karlos Williams from mock and slide Harris in but shoulder concerns me. Harris never missed a game until 2014 Senior Bowl. 188 tackles in two seasons is pretty good although he frequently needed assistance.
