    Never mind - turned out to be a typo or something at the ESPN website.

    The profile on the list you linked shows him as RB from Cincy.

    He was a great FB for Ray Rice at Rutgers. Solid pick up.

    Brian Leonard?! Excellent! He's a really solid player. There was discussion about whether he should be considered a FB or a RB when he was coming out.

    Get ready for some wet panty post if we really signed him. When he was coming out of college there were some on here in love with this guy. :smooch:

    I liked him in college.

    Is this the most fbs we've ever brought in?

    I'm thinking vonta is probably gone.

    Found one of his old draft profiles. Looks more like a load of an RB. But maybe they are thinking that with a few extra pounds, he could be a load of a FB, while carry the loaf when called upon and catching out of the backfield when called upon.

    I wonder if someone on the ESPN website just messed up entering the info. I was surprised we hadn't heard of this before.

    If he's a FB, and if the Texans really signed him, I take it as even more of a sign that Leach is leaving.

    I would have been ecstatic for this. But of course, it's just a typo. Ah, well.

    A very good college FB, but is too small to play the position in the NFL
    Not fast and agile enough to play RB.
    He has good hands and can catch the ball out of the backfield.
    He can be used in the hybrid Jameel Cook/Casey mold.

    I used to love to watch him and Ray Rice when they were at Rutgers!

    I'd rather have Leach the human battering ram.

    iirc when we played the bengals he was the FB, not RB.
