Casey on Horton's 'most versatile' list

June, 15, 2012
Gary Horton’s been looking at the most versatile players in the NFL.

In his AFC Insider piece Insider, he’s got one AFC South representative: Houston fullback/H-back James Casey, ranks eighth.

Horton on Casey:
“He is really a tight end by trade, but he lines up mostly at fullback in this dynamic Texans' offense. He isn't a devastating blocker in the run game, but he is a good athlete with solid feet whose best production comes in the passing game. He can either release in space as a receiver in their two-back sets, or he can move to TE, either in line or flexed out when they go to their two-TE look. He gives the Texans a ton of offensive flexibility.”

I know the Texans just added fullback Moran Norris to their roster.

I’ll hit on this more soon, but I’d be fine with the Texans abandoning the idea of a fullback altogether.

Let Casey be what he really is, working as an H-back/ tight end. Arian Foster can run just as well behind Casey or Owen Daniels or Garrett Graham.
