    i like the signing... hopefully he can stay healthy. if he runs anywhere near the way he did in '04, then we got a real gem.

    Awesome. Not a great running back anymore but I think he can still be a quality one. Dayne/Taylor should be good backups as well I think.

    good deal...i think he's a guy who at the very least can teach some of our younger RB's how to be a pro back in this league...there is something to say about the leadership of a veteran player like green...he knows his days of being "the guy" are over...as he mentioned in his interview posted on the texans main webpage he can be a guy in the running game...you add him with taylor, gado, and lundy...possibly williams and dayne and this makes for a good competitive training camp battle for the top 3 runningbacks on this team...it also allows us to focus on other positions in the draft...obviously the team knows that adrain is not falling to the 8th spot...they probably don't want to go into the draft needing to draft marshawn lynch...so now they can go into the draft thinking we still need a #2 WR (ginn jr.), a FS (landry), etc and focus on getting this team better

    Somebody would be willing to give up an awful lot to move up and grab him if we don't take him

    The Texans have reached an agreement with their first free agent Green Bay running back Ahmad Green.

    Green, 30, is signing a four-year contract worth $22 million, including $6.5 million in guarantees.

    Green has been one of the most productive running backs in the NFL for the past seven years.
    The former Nebraska running back enjoyed his five best seasons (2000-2004) when Mike Sherman was the Packers head coach. During that period, he never rushed for fewer than 1,163 yards. HIs best season was 2003 when he rushed 1,883 yards and scored 20 touchdowns.
    Green immediately becomes the starter, from a group that includes Wally Lundy, Chris Taylor and Samkon Gado
    The Texans are trying to resign Ron Dayne.
    Green, a no 1. pick by Seattle in 1998, is a ten-year veteran, who rushed for 1,059 yards and scored six touchdowns last season.

    Well it says we're not trading up and that they don't expect Peterson there at #8 .
