    If true it would have to be somebody who's been cut or they made a trade.

    Any thoughts?

    And, yes I know that there is a way better then zero chance that this is all BS.

    Will be interesting to see if anything comes of this.

    Veteran RB help, I hope that doesn't mean we are taking somebody's old castoffs ala Ahman Green.

    Scout.com's Adam Caplan is reporting the Texans have interest in Michael Turner.

    One thing to remember is that even though the free agency doesn't start until the 29th, verbal deals are being made now.

    That link may not work due to subscriber content.

    Hey just passing by but noticed earlier on footballsfuture.com an article predicting Texans 08 taking Ward article by Greg Davis. Just an article though of RB free agents and which teams will take what...although predictions.

    I hope we don't pay him what he thinks he is worth if we do go after Turner.

    New York has two good Fullbacks. I doubt they care.

    would be a good deal easier to pay for tickets this season if it was Turner we picked up.

    And yet they signed him and then the Texans matched the deal.

    Vonte may be a bit upset. He could have had a Super Bowl ring.

    And a good deal easier for the Texans to decide what position to draft in Round 1.

    They have 2 good FBs now, I think they were still looking for a good one last year when the Vonta thing went down.

    Kirwin talked about it a couple of different times, but wouldn't give names or teams, except to say that it was a trade with Texans and a RB involved in the deal.

    He indicated he was trying to track it down to confirm before floating the story.

    I was listening intently to see if they actually came through with the goods, or if any new information had come out, but hadn't heard anything when I turned Sirius off.

    Go Texans

    Unless they get him cheap, I'd rather draft a RB. Let's use our available cap space to go get one or more of Justin Smith (DE), Bryant Johnson (WR), Landon Johnson (OLB), Demorrio Williams (OLB), Randall Gay (CB), or some other obscure player.

    By the way, what about Deshaun Foster? After all, he's a free agent as we speak.

    Wasn't there a rumor awhile back about the Texans possibly trading for Cadillac Williams?


    Nevermind, I doubt it. Forgot how bad his knee injury was.
