Andre Brown returns ?, to what roll? (1 Viewer)

Texans agreed to terms with RB Andre Brown, formerly of the Giants, on a one-year, $645,000 contract.
The Texans have their Ben Tate replacement. Older than Tate and even more injury prone, Brown is not an upgrade behind Arian Foster, but was easily the second-best back left on the market behind Chris Johnson. Brown started the final eight games for the Giants last season, but averaged only 3.53 yards per carry. For his career, the 27-year-old Brown owns a 4.09 YPC. He gets what's blocked, but not much else. Brown will begin training camp as the clear No. 2 on the depth chart, but won't be miles ahead of Dennis Johnson and Jonathan Grimes. Apr 7 - 4:07 PM

Yeah, saw this last week. I would have thought that Brown would have gotten more attention from other teams, but after seeing muted interest for much higher profile names throughout free agency, it wasn't surprising that he had to settle for a minor contract as a clear backup.

I guess he had a bit of a run two years ago, but at the end of the day, he is what he is. Some talent to enable him to keep him bouncing from team to team, but nothing special.
