    He probably could've been had for a 5th with a conditional 4th. Other than that, I like the trade.

    Conditional, may turn into a 3rd. I guess depending on his production or the like.

    Jon Dorsey, obviously? Who cares? We got us a damn good running back that I never saw us trading for. Now, if only we could do the same and get Trent Williams that would be great!

    Awesome! Never thought they would to be honest. I was expecting Blue to come through the doors of NRG.

    Don't you mean which individual in the GM committee handled the call and did the negotiating with the Browns on behalf of the Texans ?

    100% was expecting him to be back if the jags ended up cutting him.
    We had to make a move, we know Lamar cant take the load for 17 games. and BoB wasnt gonna trust a rookie to take on that secondary role.

    The other good thing is this shows the Texans are willing to make some moves. Hopefully the next one involves a call to Washington.

    This was a while back and I’ve been silent for a bit around this area. Ecstatic about this pickup. Duke may very well be more beneficial to us than Lamar. Great day for our running back room.
