    Well I know some people will be happy, he is worth a look for sure, but I wouldn't be comfortable giving him more than short-yardage and goal-line carries at this point. We still need a home run threat like 08 Slaton.

    I call it speculation at this point.

    Insert a running back *Lendale White* and add teams looking to improve their running game *insert Texans* and there's a story.

    I know there is some Titan/Reggie Bust stink on Lendale White but he is effective moving the ball in the situations we have been poor in.

    I'm hoping '10 Slaton bounces back to '08 Slaton form myself or a draft pick can help out but I for one would like to see White in a Texans uniform.... or perhaps one and a half Texans uniforms.

    No way I'm giving up a second round pick for a poor man's Ron Dayne. :texanbill:

    Would you trade our first round pick for DeAngelo Williams?

    kubiak wanted him coming out. we got demeco & winston/spencer instead thanks to the bills.. personally i think hes too injury prone to invest that much in. good player though

    Nope. Running backs careers are way too short to justify trading a first round pick for one, especially one who is injury prone.

    There's a scene in E.T. that gave me a great idea on how to use LenDale White in the red zone. So I used that inspiration to conjure up a photoshop image here:

    He had 7 TD's as a rookie and 15 TD's in his second year. He only had 2 last year due to CJ has a stoopid year.

    I would sign him. I think he could very well be a Bettis reincarnate. (The Rams gave up on him early, big fat bastard of a back. Bettis didn't tear it up early in his career either.)

    White is no way like Dane the one yard train. White actually hits the hole plus he brings a much needed attitude to this team.

    But thats my opinion.

    I think he would make a good addition to this team. He definately has fresh legs. We just need someone to actually block for him. It would be our 3rd ex-titan rb.

    Living in Tennessee the past few years I had the chance or misfortune to catch alot of Titans games on TV and I can say that there were times White seemed to be lazy but most of the time he worked his butt off and was a solid back. I think he would be a great addition as a short yardage and 2nd half with the lead back and it's always good to have multiple backs. Look at the Titans for example, They haven't had 1 single great back since Eddie George and still managed to win alot of games with medium to little talent at QB.

    I'd love to see White in Houston. My personal opinion though.

    Ah geez, had Lendale come to Houston earlier we might have been able to see what Travis Johnson could have been since he wouldn't have been able to eat himself in to crappiness. (Of course he could have just sucked just as much 30 pounds lighter.)

    I would love to sign White, he has been on FA wish list all season. He was a solid college RB who I predicted would be a very good Pro. Better than he more famous teammate, Heisman Trophy Winner Bush, well at least a better RB.

    White has not had a lot of miles put on him, he should have a chip on his shoulder, and he can show the Titan twice a year they made a mistake.

    He also appears to be a good team player, having shared the ball in college, and in the pros. In the games I saw CJ blowing up, i always saw White being one of the first ones on the sideline to chest bump him. Takes a real team player to be that way.

    As for the question of trading a 1st round pick for DeAngelo Williams? I don't. Not even a third rounder. He seems to always be hurt.
