Could additional RB for Texans come from Denver?
Houston Texans fans are wondering how the team didn't address its one pressing offensive need with their draft eight picks.
They want a bigger back who can get tough inside yards working with Steve Slaton.
Denver has loaded up with running backs in free agency and drafted Knowshon Moreno in the first round. Ultimately, the Broncos will purge more Mike Shanahan guys as they move away from his system.
With Alex Gibbs running that very system in Houston, runners who looked good in it in the Rockies are smart projections for the Texans if they come free.
Props to Marvez for the quality forecast.
As for his remaining needs:
- I believe the Colts have moved on and we're unlikely to see Marvin Harrison return. Between fourth-round pick Austin Collie and holdovers Roy Hall and Pierre Garcon, they think a reliable third option will emerge.
- While the Jags would like another veteran receiver, they can be OK with Torry Holt, Mike Walker, Dennis Northcutt, Troy Williamson and draft picks Mike Thomas and Jarett Dillard.
- And when Craig Hentrich decided to keep playing, the Titans didn't hesitate to re-sign him. Josh Miller could well be brought back to help in camp and be around as an insurance policy.
