    If this team loved the 'over trained' GEar Head in Cushing then they should love a better producing pot head lol .. cannabis prohibition will come to an end in the NFL before long.

    1st, I loved Henry coming out but he did little this season until very recently with two huge games. Should well tonight. As rotational back, he has three 1000 yrs consecutively plus he's excellent receiver..a lighter, shorter Bell. Harris is used to sharing rock unlike most RBs. The kid is good running thru or outside the line. He and Foreman can prolong Bell's career. Yes Bell would be expensive but add the 3 cap hits and the corps would be reasonable especially for productivity. Also allows a trade for Miller. Anyone want see what Gaines would do with 2 thirds?

    Because we can get better with Bell or same with Harris, because he is about our only trade bait and we need picks, because he has been just above average until last few games, because 2019 last contract year, because I still don't think Coach knows how to use him, because....

    This is the exact reason the Texans should keep Fuller

    Miller does not hold trade value of great significance largely because of the reason you just laid out.

    But...teams need pro bowl nominee who is having good run to play offs could give a 3rd. His 2019 cap is reasonable and could be lowered with an extension.

    or a "just above average" RB who will be 28 with high between the tackles usage, a good contract number and we (other NFL team) probably can draft a guy like that in the 3rd (or later)...a good NFL team isn't going to be swayed by recent success...

    We need to draft other than RB in first three rounds an so will other teams. I don't see a Miller on day three that will start.

    Pretty sure you are the one who typed that the Texans could find someone equal to Miller in the 3rd round, not me. I am just repeating this back to you.

    How many RB's get traded?

    Hyde got traded for a 5th, who else has gotten traded?

    You want to trade Miller for a 4th or 5th? I dont.

    As far as Bell goes you already know my thoughts, the $$$$ could be better spent fixing the OL/CB positions.

    Bell has already been suspended once for smoking pot, which means that that he's gotten caught once before he was suspended and the next time he caught that equals a one yr suspension.
