Houston Texans Free Agency: Veteran Running Back Chris Polk Signed By Texans

Oh look, actual news! Just two days before the Texans snatch up a group of new rookies in the 2015 NFL Draft, they have added a veteran running back to bolster one of their most important position groups.

Despite the 2015 Draft class being absurdly well stocked at the running back position, the Texans have added to their stable of ball carriers this afternoon by signing former Eagle Chris Polk. Take it away, John McClain.

Polk was known as a battering ram of sorts for the Eagles. While not necessarily a complete back, he was more than capable of bumping and bruising his way through tackles in short yardage and goal line situations. The Texans already have a couple of big backs in Arian Foster and Alfred Blue, but there is no harm in adding more competition to an already balanced roster.

What say you, BRB? Does this mean that the Texans are no longer targeting a running back early in the draft to be the heir apparent to Arian Foster?
