Houston Texans Cut RB Ronnie Brown, Sign CB Jumal Rolle From Packers' Practice Squad

The Texans continue to adjust the roster today, releasing a veteran running back and adding a cornerback to the 53-man roster. Read Battle Red Blog for more details.

Twitter was hot this morning with news about yet another churn to the Houston Texans' roster.

Does this mean that Arian Foster is healthy enough to trim the roster down to three running backs with the release of Ronnie Brown?  Does this perhaps indicate that A.J. Bouye's injury is more concerning than we know by bringing in another cornerback?  More than likely it is just adding depth to a position that brings high value on defense and special teams while adjusting the running back depth to a more traditional size for an NFL roster.

Jumal Rolle is a North Carolina native who was an undrafted free agent in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Catawba.  He was signed and released by the Bills initially, spent one month on the Saints' practice squad, and finally worked the majority of 2013 on the Green Bay Packers' practice squad.  He was signed to the Packers' active roster December 27, 2013, but again found himself on their practice squad in 2014.  The Texans bring him to their 53-man roster as they prepare to travel to Dallas for the big "Governor's Cup" showdown to determine NFL bragging rights in Texas for the next four years.
