Houston Texans have made an important move Monday as they increased their offensive depth in the tailback position with the recruitment of running-back Andre Brown.
Brown had a solid season last year as he gained just under 600 all purpose yards in only eight games for the shocking New York Giants.
The move will act as a huge boost for the Texans after they allowed former back-up running-back Ben Tate to hit free agency.
Current starting running-back Arian Foster had plenty of injury issues last season, so a quality back-up was needed for Houston to rebound from an awful 2013 campaign.
"Texans agree with RB Andre Brown. Andre Brown signed one year for minimum $645,000," he said.
When you consider that Brown only played half of the season last campaign, his production was hugely impressive.
This means that the Texans have got a complete an utter steal in signing him if he is to repeat that production for only $645,000 in 2014.
However, he has only played 22 games in four seasons, which suggests that he might not be able to cope with the demand of the NFL.
