This seems to be the case. LINK
I'd probably give up a 7th to get him, but not much more.
I might've given the big dump I took this mornin for him......nah
I'd listen to what they were asking for because we do know he can score TDs.
If they release him or for a late rounder I would bring him in at least for camp because you never know what a change might do for any player.
I'd give a 6th or 7th rounder for him. I'd rather we draft a good RB on Friday night though. Thursday night I want a DB.
By no means would I trade away a top pick for him but it just depends.
I don't see why he wouldn't be worth a 5th. I'd rather have him than some random guy in the 5th.
No higher than a 5th.
Friday night RB say Tate
White/ Tate/Slaton is not a bad trio.
It just depends on how much capital that Smithiak want to spend fixing the run game. The Tacks wont take a 5th for White from the Texans and have to face White twice a year.
Why do you feel this way?
White is a good short yardage RB. If he was on the Texans last year they probably would've won 2/3 more games.
I remember a thread on White being shopped a month or 2 back. Must not have been any good offers yet or not to many teams interested.
That whole thread was based on a hypothetical statement by ESPN Insider that the Tacks may not need White, considering Johnson's success........and the Texans could use an RB like White. There was never more presented than that.
Hard to tell how much the weight loss affected his ability as a short yardage back last season. It seems the Tacks rode the hot hand (and for good reason) which took away White's carries.
Gotcha. I know alot of the fans on this board dogged him out in that thread but I think he is a decent short yardage back.
While I'm at it Cloak, I really appreciate all the information medical and otherwise that you post over here at Texanstalk. You are one of the many reasons that this is the absolute best Texans bb. No contest.
Though as CNNND said, it was just a hypothetical, I wouldn't mind giving up a 6th or possibly a 5th for him. I think he would respond proactively to getting traded to a divisional rival for a late round pick (from 2nd rounder to 5th/6th, if that was me I'd be pissed) and would really want to prove a point and play with heat.
White's a punk, a Ron Dayne 2.0. I've never been a fan of trading draft picks and damn sure not a fan of just another fatass RB who fans think can get that extra yard. If we're going to spend a pick on a RB, do it in the draft. Younger, cheaper (likely) and eager to get to work.
BTW, on winning 2/3 more games with him:
Not on my watch
FWIW in 4 seasons in the league White has scored 24 touchdowns, that is more than any Texans RB has ever had in there Career.
White can find the endzone, that is proven fact. He did in college, he did it in the pros he could do it for us.
Well that is slighting Domanick Davis by more than a little. DD had 23 rushing TDs in 3 seasons plus another 5 through the air where White has none.
Hey, that's Domanick Williams to you!!!...
Not really, DD/DW was a good back but if you want a goal-line/short yardage runner it isn't close.
Separate names with a comma.
