Megan Manful of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Texans have signed free agent running back Mike Bell. For the Texans, it adds another former Bronco who is familiar with the offensive system being implemented by head coach Gary Kubiak.
Whether or not this means the end of the the Chris Brown experiment in Houston is yet to be seen, however it does indicate that the Texans are serious about establishing a consistant running game in 2008.
Manful also reported that S Brandon Mitchell was released to make room for the newly acquired running back.
Feel free to leave your opinions of the signing in the comments below.
