    Can't wait for this guy to grow and take over for Foster and Tate. I've lost all faith in Foster securing the ball and Tate staying healthy.

    I remember him. He messed us up. At least we have more competition. He went from Jaguars to Colts to Texans lol.

    Is he the only one of the "tryout" players that got a contract?

    He had zip carries with the Colts and chalked up ~2 ypc in 2011 with the Jags...........3 ypc if you average 2010 and 2011. Could be he is mostly being looked at as a returner.

    Pro day results -- 4.4 40-yard dash, 1.45 10 split.

    5'8"/209, his vertical leap of 43 inches would have been first among all 2010 Combine tailbacks.

    I actually like this. I think he has a really good shot at being the third or fourth RB. Really good athlete. If he can display some good vision from the backfield he could be a sleeper type pick up.

    Is this mean that we are a little thin at returner position and needed more competition? We drafted Bonner for WR/KR kinda guy right? Personally, I don't want our starter/s to return kicks/punts as they put themselves in more risk getting injure. Now we got good kickers, hope we can find good returner/s.

    Our return game was pathetic last year. We need to give as many guys looks as possible.

    It didn't have much to do with the guy carrying the ball, though...

    I don't think the kick return duty was the reason Houston selected Bonner. Kubiak was impressed with Bonner during the Combine because of his route running and his hands.

    What ya saying here.

    Coach Joe is the man, Says Jacoby/Holiday.

    Besides Karims great return abilities I guess that 3.0 YPC is reallly going to make a huge difference in Garys gameplans.
