The Texans can solve one problem via Free Agency...

Let me start by sayin that I know hardly anyone will agree with me so I am prepared to stand alone on my thoughts (not the first time).

 

However, I think the Texans should consider LenDale White as a FA pick-up in the offseason as our physical down-hill RB.  Mostly because of apathy, he has been underutilized with the Titans.  However, given the gluttony of RBs over the years during his tenure (Travis Henry, Chris Brown, & Chris Johnson), it would seem biding his time until free agency was probably more front-and-center than trying to fight for playing time.  He has good speed, a barely abused physical body (except for tequila), and would be highly motivated to show his talent in the AFC South where has has lingered for the past few years.  I think in terms of past FA RBs we have acquired (Ahman Green & Chris Brown), at 25, he is like a new car compared to their level when arriving in Houston.  Of course, this is all assuming that he likes coming to a playoff contender with Houston and does it for reasonable money, which I think he would after riding the bench this past season.

 

Of course, I also think free agency might solve some other issues as well in terms of line depth and maybe some secondary help.  Yet, to take away a definite concern at RB and bring in a power runner in LenDale in to bolster the dashing abilities of Steve Slaton as well as a potential darkhorse in Foster, would allow us to focus the draft on the depth and talent needed in other areas to make sure the Texans survive the schedule from hell in 2010.

 

If not, I like Dwyer or Gerhart in the 2nd or 3rd rounds if available.  We can't stay status quo in 2010 in the backfield or it will be more disappointment in 2010. That I think we all agree on...
